Sanctity of Life - #3590 - Americans United for Life Releases Rankings of all 50 States on Pro-Life Issues - Daily Caller

With the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade just around the corner Americans United for Life (AUL) released their seventh annual “Life List” detailing the most pro-life states, based on issues ranging from abortion to euthanasia.  This year the AUL ranked Louisiana as the most pro-life state. The Pelican State was followed by Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Nebraska and Arkansas.  The AUL listed Washington State, California, Hawaii, Vermont and Montana as the least pro-life states.   Arizona, Indiana, Kansas, North Carolina and Utah were rated the “most improved” states on pro-life issues.  The AUL ranked states using five piece of pro-life criteria including laws related to: abortion, unborn victims of violence, biotechnologies including stem-cell research, end of life issues and freedom of conscience for health care providers.  The pro-life group is intent on increasing the number of pro-life states and boasts that 2011 was a “watershed” for pro-life initiatives as 47 states considered more than 460 abortion-related measures, and actually enacted about 70 of them.  “The states are preparing for the day after Roe. And as the ‘Life List’ documents, we’re seeing tremendous gains in defending life in law,” said Charmaine Yoest, AUL president. See the AUL’s full list: 1. Louisiana 2. Oklahoma 3. Pennsylvania 4.
