Bill: Women seeking abortion need to hear baby's heartbeat


From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

Lawmakers at the Capitol are going back and forth over an abortion bill. It has to do with hearing the baby's heartbeat. They also voted not to repeal a bill some say could lead to Creationism being taught in public school science classes. On a lighter note, have you seen Baton Rouge High School lately? We'll take you inside for a look at the major renovation. It's Friday and that means Live After Five. Check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before hitting the road today to make sure there aren't any delays on your route. If you do run into any unusual traffic issues while on the roads, you can always see traffic on our WAFB app. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
