Get ready for a new fight over abortion in Washington.

Republican senators today introduced a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks (5 months), arguing that babies at that stage can survive on their own.

Pro-Life advocates across the state are pushing Senator Mary Landrieu to get on board with the senate bill.

Just a few months ago, Senator Landrieu said she was undecided on a law like this.

"Senator Landrieu and other Democrats from southern states - conservative-oriented states - are really critical to this legislation’s passage,” stated Ben Clapper with Louisiana Right to Life. “We need their support of this legislation."
