Defending Life 2008 Released on Capitol Hill

DL08 DC Release

On April 3, 2008, Congressional Representatives Daniel Lipinski (D-IL) and Doug Lamborn (R-CO) hosted AUL on Capitol Hill as we distributed our landmark legal guide, Defending Life 2008.

Copies were distributed directly to key Senators, Congressmen, and their pro-life staffers; through the Senate and House Values Action Teams; and at Grover Norquist’s weekly coalition meeting.

With Defending Life 2008, AUL continues to provide cutting-edge resources for the pro-life movement. This comprehensive guide makes AUL’s unique legal expertise and incremental strategy even more widely available.

A crowd of nearly 50 congressional staffers, members of Congress, and other interested Washingtonians gathered in room 2105 of the Rayburn House Office Building to hear AUL Vice President & Executive Director Daniel McConchie and AUL Staff Counsel Maggie Datiles talk about AUL’s work and about Defending Life 2008.

DCIn addition, Rep. Lamborn spoke to the group briefly, stopping by on his way back from a vote on the House floor.

The luncheon concluded with a brief question and answer session with AUL experts.

Many thanks to the offices of Rep. Lipinski and Rep. Lamborn (and others) for all of their help with arrangements.

This event was conducted within the current guidelines of the House of Representatives as AUL does not employ or retain federal lobbyists.
