On Wednesday, Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge joined other state A.G.’s in filing an amicus brief against the Biden Administration’s attempt to thwart Texas’ pro-life heartbeat law.

Texas enacted the law earlier this year. It generally prohibits abortion after an unborn baby’s heartbeat can be detected. As a result of the law, abortion facilities in Texas have been closed for the past several weeks.

However, the Biden Administration has taken legal action to block the law.

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland is spearheading that effort in federal court.

On Wednesday, Attorney General Rutledge and others filed an amicus brief in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, saying,

The Attorney General [Merrick Garland] has no authority to act as a roving reviser of state law, challenging as unconstitutional any rule with which he disagrees. Congress has repeatedly refused to grant him such authority; this Court should refuse to do so as well.

It’s good to see Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge and her team continuing to take a strong stand against the Biden Administration’s pro-abortion policies.

This case could have significant implications for pro-life laws in Arkansas and elsewhere.
