Gene Mills, President of the Louisiana Family Forum, who was the guest speaker at the Baton Rouge Press Club for its meeting on Monday, August 8, 2022.
Our last feature had no video, which is frustrating because Sound Off Louisiana is a video blog.
Hence, we’re making up for it today with a plethora of videos focusing on the presentation of Gene Mills, President of the Louisiana Family Forum, who was the guest speaker at the Baton Rouge Press Club for its meeting of Monday, August 8, 2022. Mills was invited to discuss several issues, but the recent overturn of Roe v. Wade dominated the presentation and the Q & A.
Obviously, our feature is timely given that, mere hours before the release of this feature, the Louisiana Supreme Court denied an abortion appeal, thus keeping the ban in place. Here are video highlights of Mills’ presentation:
Mills responds to a question by BRPC President (and daily radio talk show host) Jim Engster entailing whether Mills’ ultimate goal is a Federal ban on abortions throughout the nation.
Mills responds to a question by Mark Ballard (lead editor for The Advocate in Baton Rouge) entailing Louisiana legislators whom he (Ballard) asserts have come to him indicating they are “pro life” but would like to have been provided with an opportunity to have exceptions for rape and incest but feared Louisiana Family Forum would target them if they were to do so.
Mills responds to a question by Sound Off Louisiana founder Robert Burns entailing his thoughts on the recent Kansas vote on the abortion issue.
Mills responds to a question by Sound Off Louisiana founder Robert Burns regarding recent legislative initiatives by State Rep. Rick Edmonds (R-Baton Rouge) to improve the adoption industry in Louisiana in light of constituents (most notably Craig Mills — no relation to Gene) having approached Edmonds about being allegedly scammed in the adoption process.
Mills responds to a question by Lanny Keller (editor for The Advocate in Baton Rouge) entailing Gov. Edwards’ vetoes of School Choice Bills and whether Mills sees a brighter future for such bills once Gov. Edwards’ term in office ends in January of 2024.
Mills responds to a question by Linda Benedict (BRPC speaker coordinator) entailing Mills’ thoughts on gun violence. In his response, he takes The Advocate to task for articles 10-15 years ago which Mills asserts were “inflammatory” and “not accurate.”
Mills responds to a question by Ike Jackson (who has run for Louisiana Attorney General on multiple occasions) entailing whether Mills intends to attend an “alt-right” October 24, 2022 function in Lafayette and/or whether he and/or his organization will “place distance” between him (or the Forum) and that group.
Mills responds to a question by Gary Rispone, brother of 2019 candidate for Louisiana Governor Eddie Rispone, and long-time host of a very popular fishing show broadcast throughout Louisiana with Gary posing his “question(s)” as ONLY Gary can do!!!
