Defending Life 2015

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. It comprehensively addresses abortion, protection of the unborn (in contexts outside of abortion), bioethics, the end-of-life, and health care freedom of conscience, expertly tackles legal and policy challenges for the pro-life movement, and reports on recent legislative and courtroom victories, continuing progress toward protecting life in each of the 50 states, and emerging issues and trends.


Women's Protection Project

The Women’s Protection Project is a unique package of legal tools available for legislators seeking to protect women and girls from the profit-driven abortion industry that consistently ignores the deadly consequences of abortion.

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