Donna Edwards, the first lady of Louisiana, has joined the advisory board of Democrats for Life, the pro-life group announced this week.
Edwards, the wife of Gov. John Bel Edwards, (D-La.) is a former teacher and mother of three.
“We’re so excited about her joining,” Kristen Day, executive director of Democrats For Life of America, told CNA in a phone interview July 16.
Day said Edwards has “a really great perspective,” to offer Democrats for Life as a woman who was once advised to have an abortion and refused. Day also commended Edwards’ work as first lady on issues like foster care.
