Elections 2018: Pro-lifers focusing on abortion measures in Oregon, Alabama, West Virginia

In less than two weeks, Oregon, Alabama and West Virginia voters will face separate ballot initiatives aimed at restricting abortion access in those states. These initiatives fit into a larger fight over abortion that continues to heat up — especially with Justice Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. Anti-abortion advocates hope that changes at the state level can be used as test cases and later implemented more broadly, while abortion rights advocates hope to defeat them. A particularly contentious ballot initiative can be used as a messaging move to drive voters to the polls in tight elections such as this fall’s West Virginia Senate race.

“The pro-life ballot measures set for next month’s elections in Alabama, Oregon, and West Virginia all express the wave of opposition by a majority of Americans to abortion on demand and taxpayer funding for the destruction of human life,” said Americans United for Life President and CEO Catherine Glenn Foster. “In the wake of revelations of the millions of taxpayer dollars Planned Parenthood affiliates have squandered in waste, abuse, and potential fraud, it simply makes sense for taxpayers to put the brakes on this gravy train and insist that public healthcare dollars be spent where they’re needed most – for preventive, whole-woman care that isn’t available at ‘reproductive health clinics.’”

AUL is the first and most influential pro-life legal advocacy group in the country. AUL’s legal strategists have been involved in every pro-life case before the U.S. Supreme Court since Roe v. Wade. Most recently, AUL’s legal team filed an amici curiae (“friend of the court”) brief in NIFLA v. Becerra on behalf of leading pro-life medical groups. See a clip of Catherine here.
