Americans United for Life is proud to present our 2019 Life List. Our Life List is our annual state ranking based on our comprehensive legal analysis of each state’s legal protections for human life from conception to natural death.
This year, we are excited to announce that Arizona has gained our highly coveted #1 ranking this year, closely followed by Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Kansas.
Sadly, for the tenth year in a row, Washington remained the state where women and their children, and vulnerable persons across the spectrum of life issues, have the fewest legal protections, followed by California, Vermont, New Jersey, and Hawaii.
Nebraska, Alabama, and Virginia made notable gains as well, each moving up in the rankings by three places after fighting hard to pass significant protections during the 2018 legislative sessions.
Steve Aden, AUL’s Chief Legal Officer & General Counsel, said that legislators across the country are continuing to fight back against “increasingly corporate abortion industry, that is determined to put their profit margins before the health and safety of women and children.”
Americans United for Life is proud to have worked with lawmakers and policy leaders across the country to help pass these important, life-affirming measures in 2018, and with your support, we will continue to accumulate victories, build momentum, and advance a culture of life in America in 2019.
