Heading into 2016 State Legislative Sessions, the Infants’ Protection Project will be a Companion to AUL’s Influential Women’s Protection Project
“In this season, as many consider the beauty of the words ‘Unto Us a Child is Born,’ Americans United for Life is launching a new ‘Infants’ Protection Project’ because every life can change the world and deserves a chance,” said AUL’s Dr. Charmaine Yoest.WASHINGTON, D.C. (12-08-15) – “At this time of the year, when many pause from daily struggles to reflect on the unique contributions one baby made to the world, Americans United for Life is announcing its groundbreaking ‘Infants’ Protection Project’ to advance legal protections for the humanity of the unborn, as well as to address ongoing abortion industry abuses,” said Americans United for Life President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest. “Already, AUL is receiving requests for a legislative package to address not only the barbaric trafficking in infant body parts, revealed by the Center for Medical Progress videos, but also the inhumanity of late-term abortion procedures which cause excruciating deaths for infants and carry substantial health risks for women. During this season, when many consider the beauty of a mother and her newborn son, Americans United for Life offers this package of legislation to care for both mother and child.”
Dr. Yoest continued, “AUL’s unique legislative package, the Infants’ Protection Project, is being released in advance of the 2016 edition of Defending Life, the pro-life playbook, which will be released nationwide in January as state legislative sessions open and the nation commemorates the tragic anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
“For more than 40 years, AUL has worked to protect unborn children and their mothers with constitutionally sound model legislation. The Infants’ Protection Project builds on AUL’s uniquely effective mother-child strategy that considers both victims of a greedy abortion industry that places profits over people.”
