WASHINGTON, D.C.–Americans United for Life President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest called the controversial healthcare law before the U.S. Supreme Court today “the largest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade.” To combat that expansion, AUL has challenged the law on multiple fronts, including joining an amicus curiae brief in the arguments last week in United States Department of Health and Human Services v. State of Florida.
“Americans United for Life made key predictions during the healthcare debate – many of which have tragically come true,” said Dr. Yoest. “But in throwing out this travesty of public policy, the U.S. Supreme Court can negate Obamacare’s massive expansion of abortion.” Continue reading →

Washington, D.C. – An article entitled “After-birth abortion: Why should the baby live?” was recently published in the London-based Journal of Medical Ethics, advocating that if abortion is allowed, then society also has the right to kill a newborn child.
