We are THRILLED that our friend, Congressman Mike Johnson, has been elected the U.S. Speaker of the House!

Without a doubt, Speaker Johnson is a strong ally and friend of Louisiana Right to Life and has served the pro-life mission for decades.

Together with his wife Kelly, Mike has led many pro-life efforts with us, including our Life March in Shreveport that garners thousands of participants each year. Prior to becoming a State Representative, he served as our Legal Counsel.

When I first met Mike many years ago, I could immediately sense his heartfelt dedication for protecting babies and helping moms. He cared deeply about the Shreveport area, especially the high number of abortions occurring in the area. He regularly helped many efforts in Shreveport that serve moms and babies, including pregnancy resource centers.

From working with him for many years, I know that Mike is a man of integrity with a deep faith. We believe God has placed Mike in this position to accomplish great things for our nation.

I expressed recently to Mike how the entire pro-life movement is supporting him and praying for him. Thank you for your prayers!

Please continue to pray with us for Speaker Johnson every day!

For a Pro-Life Louisiana.
