AUL Stands with Arizona Legislators Fighting to Protect Women

“The real war on women takes place in abortion clinics across the country as the abortion industry fights for profits, for secrecy and for reduced protections for women and their unborn children,” said AUL’s Dr. Charmaine Yoest. WASHINGTON, D.C. (10-10-14) – In an effort to protect women and girls from dangerous life-ending drugs used in chemical abortions, AUL filed an amicus curiae (“friend-of-the-court”) brief in the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of 38 Arizona legislators. The brief is filed in Humble v. Planned Parenthood in support of a 2012 state law based on AUL model legislation and regulates the administration […]

AUL Files Against “Phony Fix” in Obamacare’s Anti-Life “Accommodation”

WASHINGTON, D.C. (10-07-14) Americans United for Life has filed an amicus curie (“friend-of-the-court”) brief – AUL’s 20th on anti-life policies in Obamacare – defending the First Amendment conscience rights of Americans.

The only ‘change’ is who is to be notified about their concerns.” Yoest noted that the “alternative process” proposed by HHS requires handing over […]

“These health and safety standards close no clinics,” noted Yoest. “Instead, clinics close when they refuse to offer women minimally acceptable care, which happens all too often. They choose to close when they choose to subject women and their unborn children to their profit-focused, dangerous practices.” WASHINGTON, D.C. (10-02-14) A law requiring abortion clinics to meet the same medical standards as other facilities performing outpatient surgeries, and requiring abortion providers to have admitting privileges should emergency care be needed, will go into effect immediately in Texas as a result of a U.S. 5th Circuit Court decision late Thursday. The appeals […]
