This post was written by AUL Legal Fellow Katie Croghan. “In attempting to ensure that a woman apprehend the full consequences of her decision, the State furthers the legitimate purpose of reducing the risk that a woman may elect an abortion, only to discover later, with devastating psychological consequences, that her decision was not fully […]

Planned Parenthood promotes itself as “many things to many people,” but as the Americans United for Life Report documents, they are a scandal-ridden, heavily-subsidized abortion provider.
