NOAF was founded in response to federal and state laws restricting insurance coverage of abortion care. Since then, Louisiana lawmakers have put political ideology over sensible public policy and passed additional laws to restrict abortion access, including requiring abortion clinics to have medically-unnecessary admitting privileges to local hospitals; a law that ultimately led to clinic closures; a ban on the most common second trimester abortion procedure; and a 72-hour delay. Many of these laws are being challenged in court. Still, Louisiana has 12 abortion restrictions.
