Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge recently joined 17 other state attorneys general in asking the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold a pro-life law in Mississippi.
The coalition of states led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed an amicus brief with the court on Monday.
The brief argues that the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals was wrong to strike down Mississippi’s law generally prohibiting most abortions after 15 weeks gestation, and it asks the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold the pro-life law as constitutional.
Other states in the coalition include Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
It’s good to see Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge and her team continuing to take a strong, pro-life stand.
This case could have significant implications for pro-life laws in Arkansas and our efforts to end abortion. It’s certainly one that Arkansans should keep an eye on.
