SR 224 is a resolution commending Gene Mills as President of the Louisiana Family Forum.
The resolution describes the Louisiana Family Forum as a socially conservative nonprofit advocacy group which “supports Louisiana’s covenant marriage law and opposes abortion and same-sex marriage.”
The resolution credits Gene Mills as “the driving force behind the Louisiana Science Education Act in 2008, school vouchers in 2012, and every abortion restriction enacted in Louisiana.”
[…]under his direction and leadership, LFF has cosponsored the Louisiana Life March, been instrumental in reforming the criminal justice system in Louisiana, fought for parental choice in education, secured forty-five key legislative victories, and awarded fifty-nine legislators for pro-family votes.
The Louisiana Family Forum partners with many anti-choice and anti-LGBTQ groups, including Focus on the Family and Family Research Council, which has been designated as a hate-group by the Souther Poverty Law Center.
