Available to discuss the story is Catherine Glenn Foster, President and CEO of Americans United for Life (AUL), America’s first and largest pro-life legal organization.

    • Catherine Glenn Foster

      Catherine Glenn Foster, M.A., J.D., is President and CEO of Americans United for Life, America’s first national pro-life organization and the nation’s premier pro-life legal team. AUL’s legal strategists have been involved in every pro-life case before the U.S. Supreme Court since Roe v. Wade. AUL is the pioneer of the state-based model legislative strategy, which works to save lives today while undermining the so-called “reliance” interest adopted by the Supreme Court in Planned Parenthood v. Casey: the false idea that women “rely” on abortion to succeed in American society. Under Foster’s leadership, AUL pursues and refines a mother-child strategy that looks at the interests and vulnerabilities of both, protecting them from abortion industry abuses.
