Defending Life 2014

Each year, AUL publishes Defending Life: A State-by-State Legal Guide to Abortion, Bioethics, and the End of Life.

This annual resource manual combines our model legislation, expert analysis, and 50 state report cards into a single nonpartisan guide for legislators, policy makers, the media, and interested Americans.

New this year is an enforcement module that provides the legal means to hold abortion providers who harm women and girls accountable.
