Though the amendment has no immediate effects, it could have major implications for abortion access in Louisiana if the U.S. Supreme Court were to reverse Roe v. Wade.
The amendment first passed the state legislature in 2019 and was scheduled to appear on that year’s fall election, but it was deferred to appear alongside the presidential election in 2020.
