AUL in the News: Recent Media Coverage

Monday’s Christian Science Monitor features a profile of AUL’s Charmaine Yoest as the cover story:

With an easy laugh and ample charm, Charmaine Yoest doesn’t at all appear to be Public Enemy No. 1 for the pro-abortion rights community. But the foundation of her rising influence – the accessibility of her approach – becomes clear when she settles in for an unexpectedly frank conversation about the stunning 2011 antiabortion legislative juggernaut that she has helped orchestrate.

This mother of five – who is not a physician, attorney, or lawmaker – has set the stage for sweeping antiabortion victories at the state level on the strength of her seeming candor, warmth, and camera-ready smile.

In July, an Associated Press report discussed the wave of pro-life legislative victories at the state level:

“We talk about accumulating victories,” said Charmaine Yoest, president of Americans United for Life. “Any time you want to make long-term change, on an issue that’s been extremely controversial, you do it by developing momentum. You don’t change something all at once overnight.”

Also in July, a story in The Washington Times discussed a news conference on Capitol Hill discussing AUL’s report on Planned Parenthood:

“We have got to shine light on this situation and get the facts out to the American people,” said Rep. Renee L. Ellmers, North Carolina Republican, adding that a 174-page report by Americans United for Life on the “scandal and abuse” in Planned Parenthood sparked interest in such an investigation.

The report is “a blueprint for action,” said Rep. Christopher H. Smith, New Jersey Republican and a longtime pro-life leader in the House. Planned Parenthood is “ripe for investigation,” he said.
