Charlotte Lozier Institute

Charlotte Lozier Institute The Charlotte Lozier Institute is the education and research arm of the Susan B. Anthony List. CLI brings together great minds from various disciplines to focus on today's most pressing human life issues.

Check out our site at www.lozierinstitute.org

Mission: The goal of the Charlotte Lozier Institute is to promote deeper public understanding of the value of human life, motherhood, and fatherhood, and to identify policies and practices that will protect life and serve both women’s health and family well-being. Our profound conviction is that the insights available through the best science, sociology and psychology cannot help but demonstrate that each and every human is not only “fearfully and wonderfully made” but blessed to be born at this time in human history. We desire and seek that the benefits of modern medicine and the wealth of nations be put to the service of human life and that the scourges of abortion, physical disease, euthanasia and human exploitation will be diminished and ultimately overcome. Our intention is to work closely with the full array of existing groups dedicated to parallel purposes – to provide them with information of the highest quality that will assist them in their tasks of public advocacy, legal argument, and social action. We will do so while remaining faithful to the best methodologies and standards, inviting and accepting debate in the pursuit of our goals so that our work earns the highest degree of public trust and respect. These and other topics will be addressed through policy papers, conferences, editorials and blogs written by experts in each area of endeavor, Because of the policy experience of our leadership and associated experts, we believe that we will be able to bring compelling data and arguments to the attention of national, state and local decision-makers when they need them most.

Wyoming has published its FIRST state abortion report thanks to a recent law requiring the state's Dept. of Health to compile and publish abortion statistics each year.

👉In 2018, both Wyoming abortion providers acknowledged ignoring the abortion reporting requirement, considering it unenforceable. One stated in a news story: "I do not report to the state because it is none of their business."

Chemical abortions composed 100% of all reported abortions in 2019.

Abortion advocates contend that the United States Supreme Court is on the precipice of reversing Roe v. Wade—the conservative justices are simply waiting for the arrival of another like-minded colleague, and they may find that person in Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

An honest review of recent decisions by the Court, however, simply fails to support this belief—the Court has managed to make abortion jurisprudence even murkier

I'm a bit confused. A recent Catholic News Agency quoted CLI saying this: "The vaccine being developed by Moderna in collaboration with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases is also “ethically uncontroversial,” CLI says. But my understanding is that the Moderna vaccine does utilize fetal tissue. Can you please clarify CLI's stance on this? Thanks.

My daughter was pregnant almost 13 years ago. My little granddaughter did not make it, nor would my daughters body expel it. She has told me that this vote for yes would keep others from having this baby removed and she would have died of gangrene. Can you show me anywhere in the vote on this amendment this is not true. Thank you.I am sure this is one of the lies the other side is propagating.
