John Schroder on Abortion



Opposes state ballot initiative to override abortion ban

Republican Treasurer John Schroder agrees the legislature's abortion ban is reflective of what voters in the state want and he's against a ballot initiative. "I see no reason to do that. This is the process we live by, and the people are represented by every legislator that they send to that building both in the House and Senate," said Schroder.

Abortion doctors must have hospital admitting privileges

HB388: Provides for requirements of physicians who perform abortions.

Opposition by Jurist.org:  The law would likely shut down three of the state's five abortion clinics. Proponents of the bill argue that admitting privileges requirements further the objective of promoting women's health. Critics contend that bills like HB 388 are thinly-veiled attempts to outlaw abortions entirely. A Planned Parenthood press release [says HB 388] was passed under the guise of protecting patient safety but it does the opposite. Data from the CDC shows that abortion has over a 99 percent safety record. For patients' safety, providers already have plans in place in case of an emergency.

Legislative Outcome: Passed Senate 34-3-2, Vote #988 on May/14/14; Passed House 88-5-11, Vote #1108 on May/21/14; State Rep. John Schroder voted YES; Signed by Governor Bobby Jindal on Jun/12/14 [Note: this was the law overturned by the Supreme Court in June 2020.]
