Politics can be polarizing but in some cases there can be bipartisan support over life in the womb.

“Really, it even crosses racial bounds,” says Benjamin Clapper, executive director of Louisiana Right to Life.

“Some of our greatest proponents in the pro-life cause are African-American Democrats,” he says. “And we also have a pro-life governor right now who supports life and is willing, especially to do what it takes to make sure that tax dollars don’t support groups like Planned Parenthood. So we think this is a model for the rest of the nation.”

That governor is John Bel Edwards, a Democrat who took office in 2016.

Meanwhile, one of the organizations involved with Louisiana Right to Life is Black Advocates for Life, which seeks to increase the participation of the black community in pro-life advocacy and decrease the rate of abortion among black women.

“In Louisiana, one out of every five black babies is aborted and we want to make sure that ends and changes,” Clapper says. “And so Black Advocates is working to change that statistic in L.A.”

Black Advocates for Life is led by Dr. Kathy Allen, a native of New Orleans who is also the parent of a child with Down syndrome.
