‘COMMON SENSE PRO-LIFE LEGISLATION’
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.
