Missouri Attorney General Releases Statement on Supreme Court Draft in Dobbs

JEFFERSON CITY, MO – Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt released a statement following a POLITICO report on a leaked draft opinion from the United States Supreme Court showing a majority of the Court intends to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Schmitt says he is encouraged by the draft opinion that is consistent with the briefs he has submitted to the Supreme Court calling for the 1973 case to be overturned. Schmitt says he is prepared to immediately issue the opinion that would protect the unborn in Missouri if the draft opinion is made official by the Court.
