Americans United for Life recently released its 2014 "Life List."

Louisiana ranked as the most pro-life state; it has topped the list for five years.

This year’s list has Oklahoma, Arkansas, Arizona and Pennsylvania in the top five. The least pro-life state is Washington, followed by California, Vermont, New York and Connecticut.

The most improved states, because they have new pro-life legislation, include Texas, Illinois, North Carolina and Kansas.
