In advance of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee hearings scheduled for Monday, March 20th regarding the nomination Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court, Americans United for Life Legal Team will be highlighting some of the crucial legal principles that will be in the news regarding life in the law.

The SCOTUS 101 project is intended to educate people on some of the key issues impacting abortion-related laws, which will likely be discussed during the hearings. Also, during the hearings, AUL will provide a daily react on the testimony looking back over the more than 40 years of laws impacting life and looking forward to a world after Roe, when the states can decide how best to protect mothers and their unborn children.

MEDIA NOTE: AUL Staff attorney Deanna Wallace will be providing daily analysis of the issues discussed during the hearings. For interviews e-mail
