Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron received support from 23 state attorneys general this week in his appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court to defend a pro-life law.
At issue in the case is whether Cameron, a pro-life Republican, may take up the defense of the Kentucky dismemberment abortion ban after pro-abortion Democrat Gov. Andy Beshear refused to do so. A Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals panel previously denied Cameron’s request.
“By a 2-1 vote, a Sixth Circuit panel allowed the unilateral capitulation of a single official to be the final word on whether a fully enacted law would be invalidated (and thus de facto repealed),” the state attorneys general wrote in their brief.
