Where is your state on AUL’s Life List?

Friday, January 21st, 2011

For the sixth year in row, Americans United for Life released the “Life List” – a ranking of all 50 states based on the way each deals with a comprehensive list of life issues – from euthanasia to abortion. AUL CEO and President Dr. Charmaine Yoest said that the model legislation AUL specializes in and the state-based approach to protecting life in the law is “changing the momentum towards life at the state level. We are seeing a cultural shift toward protecting life and rolling back the tide of unrestricted abortions that Roe v. Wade produced.”

“The results reveal that legislative action at the state level is turning the tide toward life with strategic refinement of the law,” said Yoest. AUL has produced 38 pieces of model legislation and been influential in drafting opt-out language for states that do not wish to pay for President Obama’s health care plan that includes abortion coverage.

In the top 5 spots in 2011 are 1: Oklahoma, 2: Louisiana, 3: Pennsylvania, 4: Arkansas and 5: Texas. At the bottom of the list were New Jersey, Vermont, Hawaii, California and Washington State. For the complete listing and executive summary of the project, click here.

The “Life List” is possible because of AUL’s Defending Life 2011. This legal guide
