Yoest Offers Help to States

Dr. Charmaine Yoest, President and CEO of Americans United for Life, the nation’s first pro-life public interest law firm, has issued the following statement following last night’s passage of a bill in the House of Representatives that creates taxpayer-funded abortion:

“I am immediately offering the full assistance of our legal team to any state that wishes to respond legislatively to the anti-life provisions in the new health care reform law. The new law explicitly allows states to pass laws prohibiting qualified health plans offered through the Exchanges in their states from offering abortion coverage. We have ready-to-deploy model legislative language and will work with any state to tailor it to meet specific needs.”
