PIERRE, S.D. – Attorney General Marty Jackley has joined an amicus brief filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit by 16 Attorneys General and the Governor of Mississippi. The brief challenges a decision that enjoins a state statute that bans doctors from performing abortions solely because of the gender, race, or disability status of the unborn child and requires abortion providers to either bury or cremate the aborted remains of unborn children.

“The States have a right to prohibit the discriminatory elimination of classes of human beings and to ensure that human remains-including the remains of unborn children- are disposed of in a respectful manner,” said Jackley. “I will continue to forcefully protect the unborn and fight to ensure they are given proper respect.”
