baby feetA new law in Louisiana delivers a double punch to reduce abortions.

The key to reducing abortions, and saving babies in the womb, is that expectant mothers are informed of all their options before they choose abortion.

Benjamin Clapper of Louisiana Right to Life tells OneNewsNow that is accomplished through recently passed legislation signed into law.

"The Adoption Option Act is a very exciting first in the nation piece of legislation," he says, "that insures that women considering abortion receive information about adoption, and how they might consider placing their child for adoption rather than destroying their baby through abortion."

The law provides concrete steps mothers can consider for adoption, explaining away some of the myths about the process, and it provides resources to consider abortion a life-giving option not only for the baby but for a family that is blessed with the child.

The birth mother can also contact adoption agencies anonymously to inquire about their services.

"So I believe the state of Louisiana supports both state-run and religious adoption agencies," says Clapper, "that are helping mothers place their children with families."
