MEDIA ALERT: Charmaine Quoted in World Net Daily MATTERS OF LIFE AND DEATH
Charmaine was interviewed in WND, By Drew Zahn, Obama presidency awakens pro-life movement ‘For 8 years we had President Bush and his veto pen – we don’t anymore’
“There was a concern that after the president was elected, the pro-life movement would be so demoralized that it would be almost a death blow,” said Charmaine Yoest, president and chief executive officer of Americans United for Life, the oldest national pro-life organization in the country. “But in fact, just the opposite is true.”

Yoest told WND that news of Obama’s victory in November launched an immediate surge of pro-life activism, including over 700,000 people who have signed the group’s petition to stop the Freedom of Choice Act, which Obama has said he would support and sign into law upon passage through Congress.
“Immediately after the election, our servers melted down from so many people looking to take a stand against an abortion agenda,” Yoest told WND. “Subsequently, what we’ve found over the last several months is that every time we’ve asked people on that list to do something, the response has been overwhelming.”
