If you are pro-life, Defending Life 2013, is a MUST read. See Americans United for Life’s overview of what this important annual report includes…
This annual resource manual combines our model legislation, expert analysis, and 50 state report cards into a single nonpartisan guide for legislators, policy makers, the media, and interested Americans. It comprehensively addresses abortion, protection of the unborn (in contexts outside of abortion), bioethics, the end-of-life, and health care freedom of conscience, expertly tackles legal and policy challenges for the pro-life movement, and reports on recent legislative and courtroom victories, continuing progress toward protecting life in each of the 50 states, and emerging issues and trends.
Many of the necessary building blocks for a culture that respects and protects life and for laws that reflect this desired cultural imperative are contained in this unique volume. By design, Defending Life emphasizes the importance of life-affirming legislation and seeks to educate legislators, the media, and the American public on the full spectrum of life issues and the many opportunities and challenges we face. We also hope it will encourage everyone to stay active and informed not just at the federal level, but also at the state and local levels. As this one-of-a-kind legal guide shows, we are making progress —state by state, law by law, and person by person—toward the day when everyone is welcomed in life and protected in law.
