The afore­men­tioned Mr. San­to­rum will be a key fig­ure at the 41st an­nual March for Life along the Na­tional Mall on Wed­nes­day. The event is also ac­com­pa­nied by a raft of new pro-life in­for­ma­tion to en­gage an oft-am­biva­lent press and pub­lic.

There is Amer­i­cans United for Life’s new “Life List,” rank­ing all 50 states based on how well each pro­tects life through law. For the fifth year in a row, Louisiana is in first place, fol­lowed by Ok­la­homa, Arkansas, Ari­zona, Penn­syl­va­nia and Texas.

And for the 5th year in a row, Wash­ing­ton state ranked as the worst state for life for fail­ing to pro­tect women from an un­mon­i­tored and un­der­reg­u­lated abor­tion in­dus­try, fol­lowed by Cal­i­for­nia, Vermont, New York, and Con­necti­cut.

“Real pro-life mo­men­tum is reshaping the coun­try as leg­is­la­tors craft pro­tec­tions for both mother and child, the vic­tims of an avari­cious abor­tion in­dus­try,” said Char­maine Yoest, pres­i­dent of the non­profit law and pol­icy or­ga­ni­za­tion.

“Com­mon-sense pro-life leg­is­la­tion saves lives and has broad pub­lic sup­port in light of what we’re learn­ing about the health risks of abor­tion for women,” Mrs. Yoest adds.
