NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today led a multistate coalition of 18 attorneys general in seeking to stop the State of Alabama from banning almost all abortions in the state, using the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-2019) public health crisis as an excuse. Continuing her leadership of the nation’s fight to protect women’s reproductive health, Attorney General James led the coalition in filing an amicus brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, supporting the plaintiffs in Robinson v. Marshall, as they fight to preserve access to reproductive health care for the women across Alabama.
