Charlotte Lozier Institute advises and leads the pro-life movement with groundbreaking scientific, statistical, and medical research. We leverage this research to educate policymakers, the media, and the public on the value of life from fertilization to natural death.
Our work is built on the contributions of staff and our network of over 70 Associate Scholars, who are credentialed experts in medicine, statistical analysis, sociology, science, bioethics, public health, law, and social services for women and families.
We are agents for change in the tradition of Charlotte Denman Lozier, a 19th century feminist physician dedicated to the sanctity of life and equal opportunities for women.
Founded in 2011, Charlotte Lozier Institute is the 501(C)(3) research and education institute of Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America. The institute is named for Dr. Charlotte Denman Lozier (1844-1870), an early feminist and contemporary of Susan B. Anthony who was dedicated to the sanctity of life and equal opportunities for women.
Lozier Institute is recognized by policymakers, pro-life advocates, and the media as the go-to source for accurate and timely research and information on life issues. That’s why over 17 separate amicus briefs filed for the high-profile Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization Supreme Court case, as well as the final decision that overturned Roe v. Wade, cited Lozier Institute research and resources.
Lozier Institute provides the pro-life movement and policymakers with information of the highest quality on issues including abortion, women’s health, prenatal diagnosis and treatment for the unborn, perinatal hospice, abortion reporting, sex-selection abortion, stem cell research and medicine, health care policy, and much more.
Lozier Institute is leading efforts to warn women about the dangers of chemical abortion and expose the harms of the FDA’s current abortion pill policy that simply ignores the known risks.
Leveraging millions of data points from Medicaid claims data, Lozier Institute scholars identified a dramatic spike in abortion pill-related emergency room visits, discovered that advice from pro-abortion media outlets on concealing a chemical abortion increases a woman’s risk of surgery, and confirmed that the rate of complications is higher for chemical abortions vs. surgical abortions.
