Americans United for Life

Dear David,

Today in Rolling Stone, Americans United for Life (AUL) and our President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest were featured in an in-depth story on the legislative strategy that is creating pro-life protections across the country. Reporter Janet Reitman observed, “AUL, which describes itself as both the legal arm and ‘intellectual architect’ of the movement, is chiefly responsible for the most recent and highly successful under-the-radar strategy.”

The report continues: “While ‘each state has a different scenario,’ says Yoest, AUL's central strategy is to make women – not the ‘unborn’ – the focal point of its efforts. In the past few years, AUL has drafted numerous bills that claim to protect women, recently including them in a new package it has dubbed the ‘Women's Protection Project.’” The report is referring to AUL work such as:

  • The Women’s Protection Project – cutting-edge legislation designed to protect women and their unborn children from abortion industry abuses.
  • The Life List – an annual ranking of the 50 states based on how well they have protected women and their unborn children over the last year and over the last 40-plus years of Roe’s deadly legacy.
  • Defending Life – AUL’s guidebook to model legislation – set for release next week while pro-life advocates from across the country are in Washington, D.C.
  • “The New Frontier” in pro-life legislation, to be featured in a legal panel jointly sponsored by AUL and the March for Life as part of its events.

Also, if you are in Washington, D.C. for the March for Life next week, I hope you will join us for these AUL events:

AUL Legal Conference: The New Frontier in Reversing Roe
