Nearly three decades ago, when Democratic Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards’ wife was 20 weeks pregnant with their first child, a doctor discovered their daughter had spina bifida and encouraged an abortion. The Edwardses refused.Now, daughter Samantha is married and working as a school counselor, and Edwards finds himself an outlier in polarized abortion politics.“My position hasn’t changed. In eight years in the Legislature, I was a pro-life legislator,” he said. When he ran for governor, his view was the same.“I’m as consistent as I can be on that point.”
