A wonderful national pro-life organization,
Americans United for Life (AUL) released
its annual "Life List" for the year of 2016,
near that year's conclusion, having
listed the top 10 pro-life states, based on
legislative initiatives created to protect the
lives of unborn babies in their states.
The list also ranks the rest of the states
in descending order from the most protective
states to the least.
The top 10 for 2016 are, in order:
8) North Dakota
"The momentum for creating a culture that
respects life in the law increases each year,"
states Charmaine Yost, CEO of AUL. "This
is a historic time for life. More life-affirming
and protective state laws have been enacted
since 2010 than in any similar period since
Roe v. Wade."
Would you, my wonderful readers, like to see
your home states make it into the top 10 of
this list, or at least move up from the bottom
10? Contact your state representatives and
senators, and of course your governors and
get the gears moving for drafting and passing
appropriate legislation for guarding the unborn
from abortion. Stay in touch with them, and
check in regularly with them to see what is
being accomplished. Talk to your friends,
your family members, and your neighbors
to enlist support. It's work that saves lives
and satisfies the soul.
