BATON ROUGE – Governor Bobby Jindal released the following statement today after Americans United for Life (AUL) ranked Louisiana number one on its 2013 “Life List”:
“Defending innocent human life is a core responsibility of any civilized society, and I’m proud that Louisiana has been recognized for its efforts to protect the weakest and most vulnerable among us who cannot protect themselves.”
This is the second year in a row that Louisiana has topped AUL’s “Life List.” The group’s annual “Life List” awards states that have cumulatively displayed efforts to pass pro-life legislation.
