Legal Recognition of the Unborn & Newly Born

In addition to their work to end abortion, AUL’s attorneys work to protect the unborn and provide legal recognition for unborn and newly born children in many other ways. They help legislators enact state protections for unborn victims of violence, which permit the prosecution of assailants for nonfatal assaults on the unborn. Other pro-life model legislation that AUL develops and promotes includes providing a civil cause of action in the death of an unborn child because of the negligence of a third party (such as a drunk driver), and requiring that infants who survive an abortion are given proper medical care and attention.
