All major governor candidates highlight abortion opposition
BATON ROUGE - Abortion rights supporters seeking changes to Louisiana law that would make it easier to access the procedure won't find support from the state's next governor.
All four major contenders in the governor's race oppose abortion.
The three major Republican candidates - Public Service Commissioner Scott Angelle, Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne and U.S. Sen. David Vitter - describe their anti-abortion stances as they campaign.
The main Democrat in the race - state Rep. John Bel Edwards - is running a TV ad highlighting his anti-abortion views.
In the ad, Edwards' wife Donna describes a doctor encouraging her to have an abortion after discovering their child had spina bifida. The commercial shows their grown-up daughter Samantha, who Donna Edwards describes as "living proof that John Bel Edwards lives his values every day."
