19 State AGs File Brief in Support of Trump's Protect Life Rule

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost
On March 8, nineteen state attorneys general filed a brief with the Supreme Court in defense of the Trump administration's Protect Life Rule.

The Supreme Court announced last month that it will take up a case to resolve conflicting appeals court rulings over the constitutionality of the Protect Life Rule. That rule prevented Title X grants from funding or subsidizing abortions.

While the Biden administration has voiced that it plans to get rid of Trump's pro-life regulations, this case is still important. If the pro-abortion states suing the federal government win, then future pro-life administrations may have a much harder time enacting similar regulations.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost, who signed the brief, said, “Using Title X dollars to fund or promote abortion is against the law, and I’m intervening to stop it, no matter what the president’s personal agenda may be.”

In addition to Yost from Ohio, attorneys general for Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia also signed the brief.
