And Louisiana’s law prohibiting abortion after six weeks has gotten a lot of attention. We’ll tell you about four other laws focused on abortion access that will soon take effect in the state.

Finally, while recent national headlines have focused on over-crowded immigrant detention centers in Texas, we’ll talk about conditions at detention centers here, in Louisiana.
