WASHINGTON, Aug. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With the headlines full of news of undercover videos of Planned Parenthood and efforts to investigate and de-fund Abortion, Inc., Dr. Charmaine Yoest's insight into how the life issue will impact the election will be an important part of the Presidential debate stories coming from the site of the GOP Presidential debate. Not only is AUL influential at the state level through model legislation, AUL is a national presence on federal legislation and has been involved in the most important pro-life story in recent years, providing pro bono legal service to the investigative journalists behind the shocking undercover videos revealing Planned Parenthood's trafficking in infant remains

MEDIA ADVISORY: Americans United for Life President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest will be available Thursday, August 6, 2015, at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. She can address the legal, political and moral issues of life in this election cycle.

Dr. Yoest heads AUL, the legal architects of the pro-life movement. AUL's legal strategists have been involved in every life-related case before the United States Supreme Court beginning with Roe v. Wade. AUL is the pioneer of the state-based model legislative strategy, which has increased exponentially with significant victories in the past few years. AUL's legal strategy works both to save the lives of the unborn, while also confronting the so-called "reliance" interest adopted by the Supreme Court in Planned Parenthood v. Casey: the false idea that women "rely" on abortion to succeed in American society.

Under Dr. Yoest's leadership, AUL has pursued and refined a unique mother-child strategy that looks at the interests and vulnerabilities of both, protecting them from abortion industry abuses. According to the New York Times, "Taken together, these new state laws are hugely effective…" With such a track record, the Christian Science Monitor observed that some abortion advocates consider her "Public Enemy Number One" … but with a style all her own.

AUL has been instrumental in holding Planned Parenthood to account. Read more about Investigate Big Abortion here.
