For your Roe Anniversary Interview: Rolling Stone says AUL your choice

Jan 17, 2014, 12:10 ET from Americans United for Life (AUL)

WASHINGTON, Jan. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As you line up interviews and segments for Life News this month, Americans United for Life President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest, along with other members of AUL's legal and political team, are the right choice for analysis and insight into the most current trends related to abortion's 40-plus year legacy and impact.

Today in Rolling Stone, AUL and Dr. 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.'"

For your pro-life coverage this month, AUL can provide interviews on:

1. The Women's Protection Project – cutting-edge legislation designed to protect women and their unborn children from abortion industry abuses.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. "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.
