Friday Five: Pro-Life Hero Charmaine Yoest
by Devon Williams, associate editor
‘With Barack Obama in the White House and Sen. Harry Reid and Rep. Nancy Pelosi controlling Congress, we confront a very difficult pro-abortion political situation.’
As the nation prepares for the most pro-abortion president in history, Charmaine Yoest vows to continue the fight to protect women and preborn children.
The new president and CEO of Americans United for Life (AUL) said she’s hopeful that, despite the challenges, life advocates will recharge and re-energize their efforts at the state and federal levels.
“The life movement will reassess and regroup for the next election cycle with new ways to communicate that even the weakest amongst us should be welcomed in life and defended in law,” Yoest said Wednesday.
Yoest spoke with CitizenLink about her pro-life work and her hopes for the future.
