Washington, DC— Americans United for Life, a national leader in life-affirming law and policy, applauds the decision by President Trump to proclaim January 22 “National Sanctity of Human Life Day”.

Statement from Catherine Glenn Foster, Americans United for Life President & CEO:

President Trump’s recent proclamation of January 22 as “National Sanctity of Human Life Day” is a crucial step towards an America that has progressed past the violence of abortion and suicide by physician. Affirming that the American way is intrinsically one that sustains, cherishes, and affirms human life is a strong act of leadership that will not soon be forgotten. I applaud this administration for standing up for life, and stating unequivocally that everyone counts.

Americans United for Life (AUL) is a nonprofit, public-interest law and policy organization that holds the distinction of being the first national pro-life organization in America—incorporated in 1971. It protects and defends human life from conception to natural death through vigorous legislative, judicial, and educational efforts.
