Americans United for Life released its 2014 Life List ranking the 50 states based on how well they protect life in law, announcing that Louisiana tops the list for the 5th year in a row, followed by Oklahoma, Arkansas, Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Texas. AULs Life List ranks states by their overall actions on life issues, released in advance of Roe v. Wades infamous anniversary later this month.
For the 5th year in a row, Washington ranked as the worst state for life for failing to protect women from an unmonitored and under-regulated abortion industry, followed by California, Vermont, New York, and Connecticut. This years most improved states include Texas, Illinois, North Carolina and Kansas. To see the entire 2014 Life List, click here.
As the legal architects who, since the days immediately following the deadly Roe decision, have championed the strategy of using expertly crafted model legislation to protect life, AUL has tracked states progress toward achieving a nation in which everyone is welcomed in life and protected in law, noted AUL President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest. Real pro-life momentum is reshaping the country as legislators craft protections for both mother and child, the victims of an avaricious abortion industry. Common-sense pro-life legislation saves lives and has broad public support in light of what were learning about the health risks of abortion for women.
AUL also released the Womens Protection Project All-Stars honoring states that have so far done the best in enacting protections for both mothers and unborn children, the victims of abortion industry horrors. The All-Stars ranking is awarded to states based on the enactment of protective, common-sense legislation, specifically the legislative models highlighted in AULs Womens Protection Project, now being distributed nationwide.
This years AUL All-Stars include Texas, Missouri, Alabama, Arizona and Arkansas.
Each of AULs All Stars enacted life-saving legislation to protect mother and child from an abortion industry more committed to its financial bottom line than protecting women from a dangerous procedure that is too often performed in substandard facilities, said Dr. Yoest.
In his forward to AULs soon-to-be-released 9th edition of Defending Life, Texas Governor Rick Perry commended AULs model legislation, observing: AUL plays a key role in developing and promoting legislation in all 50 states, legislation crafted to minimize the damage done by the abortion industry and its proponents. This year, AUL is promoting the Womens Protection Project, a precise collection of legislation that every state needs to consider to fight back against an abortion industry intent upon increasing its profits and political strength at the expense of the health and well-being of the women of our country.

I like this map. I just showed it to my daughter, who is in high school, and told her to pick a college in a green state. I think she would like Louisiana or parts of Texas (not into cold weather).
Interesting, because we know about half of those lives are women (or would be, at least), so the yellow states are those which are waging the war on women, right?

I am shocked the P.R. of Mass is not bright yellow.
