On Monday Family Council joined a friend-of-the-court brief supporting a West Virginia pro-life law in federal court.

Arkansas Attorney General Tim Griffin filed a separate brief in the case on Monday as well.

After the 2022 Dobbs decision reversed Roe v. Wade, West Virginia strengthened its pro-life laws, but abortion drug manufacturer GenBioPro sued the state. A federal court partially dismissed the lawsuit last August, but GenBioPro appealed the case to the Fourth Circuit.

Monday’s brief led by Advancing American Freedom argued that states have the authority and the responsibility to protect the fundamental rights of the people — including the rights of unborn children — and that abortion drugs are dangerous; the drugs are deadly for the unborn child and
potentially harmful or deadly for the woman who takes them.

This court case in West Virginia could affect pro-life laws around the country in the future. With that in mind, it’s important for pro-life states to stand up for one another in federal court.
