Attorney General Kwame Raoul is part of a coalition of 16 states in filing an amicus brief supporting women's access to safe reproductive healthcare.
The coalition filed the brief in Whole Woman's Health Alliance v. Hill, which is currently pending in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit.
Raoul and the coalition filed the brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Whole Woman's Health Alliance ( WWHA ), which is attempting to open a medication abortion clinic in South Bend, Indiana. In the brief, Raoul and the coalition argue that states have an interest in protecting the health and safety of residents, which includes promoting access to safe health care and reproductive healthcare.
Joining Raoul in filing the brief were the attorneys general of California, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Vermont and Washington.
