Attorney General Alan Wilson has joined other Republican-led states in formally opposing mail delivery of medication used to end early pregnancies, by signing onto a brief in a lawsuit against the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

In January, President Joe Biden announced that the FDA had changed its rules for the delivery of the abortion medication mifepristone, a drug used to end pregnancies up to 10 weeks after conception.

The agency determined the drug was safe to be prescribed via telehealth and delivered by mail.

Soon after Biden’s announcement, a coalition of health care professionals that oppose abortion, called The Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine, filed a lawsuit against the FDA over the change.

Wilson has signed onto a brief supporting The Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine’s suit. Attorneys general from Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wyoming have also signed the brief.

“I’ve lost count of how many times the Biden administration has tried to overreach its authority but this is yet another example,” Wilson said in a statement Friday. “Once again, we’re going to fight to protect life and the rule of law.”

President Biden Announces Five New Nominees to Serve as US Attorneys, Two to Serve as US Marshals

President Biden is announcing five new nominees to serve as US Attorneys across the country, as well as two new nominees to serve as US Marshals. These are officials who will be indispensable to upholding the rule of law as top federal law enforcement officials.

These individuals were chosen for their devotion to enforcing the law, their professionalism, their experience and credentials, their dedication to pursuing equal justice for all, and their commitment to the independence of the Department of Justice.

The President has proposed a budget that would significantly increase funding for law enforcement as part of a comprehensive approach to tackling the rising crime rate this administration inherited last year.

The President has also launched a comprehensive effort to take on the uptick in gun crime that has been taking place since 2020—putting more cops on the beat, supporting community prevention programs, and cracking down on illegal gun trafficking. Confirming US Attorneys as the chief federal law enforcement officers in their district is important for these efforts.

The President has now announced 53 nominees to serve as US Attorneys, and 11 nominees to serve as US Marshals.
