Theme: Eric Schmitt Prepares To Issue Abortion Ban Opinion In Missouri

Following a POLITICO report on a leaked draft opinion from the United States Supreme Court that shows that a majority of the Court intends to overturn Roe v. Wade, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt released the following statement:

“We’re encouraged by the draft opinion, and it is consistent with the briefs we’ve submitted to the United States Supreme Court calling for Roe v. Wade to be overturned. If we’re successful and Roe v. Wade is overturned, I’m prepared to immediately issue the opinion that would protect the unborn in Missouri.”

In July 29, 2021, Eric Schmitt joined a coalition of 24 states in filing an amicus brief in Dobbs v. Mississippi Department of Health, supporting Mississippi’s law that bans abortions after 15 weeks.

“Since taking office, I have always fought to protect the unborn, and that fight continues today. As we argue in the brief, it is time for the Supreme Court to overrule Roe v. Wade and Casey,” said Attorney General Schmitt. “While we’re fighting in court to defend Missouri’s pro-life laws, I’m proud to join 24 of my colleagues in support of Mississippi’s similar legal battle.”
