The AUL team had an amazing time connecting with so many passionate pro-life students, activists, candidates, and legislators from around the country at CPAC over the weekend. It was so encouraging to see how many attendees are serious about defending life.
I wanted to share with you my favorite part of the event: getting to see Catherine Glenn Foster, our President & CEO, speak on defunding Planned Parenthood. AUL has been working on this issue for years, and we will not stop fighting to prioritize funding for comprehensive, life-affirming care and to prevent taxpayer dollars from being given to subsidize a profit-driven abortion industry. Policies such as this are an important method of advancing women’s health by ensuring that tax dollars are going to family planning providers that can meet their patients’ comprehensive medical needs, something the abortion industry cannot do.
