Members of the House Health and Welfare Committee invoked their faith Wednesday, as they approved a bill to expand the wait time for abortions to 72 hours.
“I feel blessed to be here, so thanks for bringing the bill,” Bossier City representative Mike Johnson told the bill’s author, Frank Hoffman of West Monroe.
Representative Dodie Horton of Haughton quoted scripture.
“God creates life. He says He forms the baby in the womb and He knew our parts before they were formed, actually,” she said, paraphrasing Jeremiah 1:5.
