The Unheralded Gains of the Pro-Life MovementThis week, the Weekly Standard's Fred Barnes featured AUL prominently in a cover story profile on the quiet successes of the pro-life movement. Looking at the trends and undercurrents among the people who make up the pro-life movement, Barnes noted that AUL has been successful in moving the pro-life ball into the end zone through legislation and legal acumen.
