AG Morrisey celebrates federal court ruling in case against state abortion law, ban on abortion drug

Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is celebrating a procedural victory in an ongoing lawsuit against the state filed by the maker of a generic version of an abortion drug.

The U.S. District Court on Thursday granted in part and denied in part Morrisey’s petition to dismiss the case brought by GenBioPro, the manufacturer and marketer of generic mifepristone, against the state’s 2022 Unborn Child Protection Act.

“As I have said all along,” Morrisey said in announcing the ruling, “the new Unborn Child Protection Act is constitutional. I am pleased the court saw it the way we did. While it may not sit well with manufacturers of abortion drugs, the U.S. Supreme Court has made it clear that regulating abortion is a state issue.”
