Young v. UPS: Reducing the “Demand” for Abortion

On December 3, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court heard an important case, Young v. UPS, which will test the breadth of the 1978 federal Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA). The Act is intended to prohibit discrimination against and ensure fair treatment of pregnant women in the workplace, and is critical in helping working women choose life. AUL jointly filed an amicus curiae brief (click here to read the brief) in this case, representing over 23 of our fellow pro-life organizations in support of plaintiff Peggy Young, a pregnant mother, who was a driver for UPS and denied a “lighter duty” accommodation granted to other employees.

The twelve essays in The Cost of Choice, all by women active in the public square, argue that legal abortion has in fact harmed women—socially, medically, psychologically and culturally.
