Below is a press release from Attorney General Lynn Fitch:
Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch today issued the followed statement after Jackson Women's Health Organization filed a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization.
"For fifty years, abortion policy has been plagued by flawed legal rules that even some of the most ardent abortion supporters have refused to defend. Nothing in constitutional text, structure, history, or tradition supports a constitutional right to abortion, nor is there a sound basis for the current viability guidepost that determines when states can enact limitations on abortion. Today’s brief offers no solid arguments in defense of Roe, and the Court should overturn this flawed and hopelessly unworkable precedent. It is time to return policymaking to the people where they can address abortion policy in a way that empowers women and promotes life.”
