Louisianans: Vote “No” on Louisiana Amendment 1


The Freedom From Religion Foundation urges you to vote “no” on Louisiana Amendment 1 on the November election ballot. Louisiana Amendment 1 is an anti-science, anti-woman measure that would leave women in the state seeking abortion without any legal support. If Roe v. Wade is overturned, abortion would then become automatically illegal in Louisiana. 

Efforts to pass Louisiana Amendment 1 have received strong support from religious organizations, including Louisiana Baptists, the Louisiana Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Louisiana District Council of the Assemblies of God, which have encouraged their churches and ministries to advocate on behalf of this amendment.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation urges you to reject this demand by religious groups to dictate and deny women’s health care by voting “no” on Louisiana Amendment 1. Stand up for science, reproductive health care, and the separation of state and church by voting “No” on Louisiana Amendment 1 on the November ballot.


A secular nation’s reproductive laws should be rooted in evidence-based science, not religion. And the evidence shows that abortions are extremely safe. In fact, risk of major complications related to abortions is less than 1 percent. A 2020 study found that 99 percent of women who received an abortion did not regret their decision. In fact, a recent study found that women denied an abortion reported significantly higher anxiety symptoms and lower self-esteem and life satisfaction levels than women who received abortion care. Seventy-five percent of Americans say they want to keep in place the landmark Supreme Court ruling, Roe v. Wade, and most Americans expect abortion to be legal in the next 30 years.
