Attorney General James Condemns Texas AG for Endangering Lives of Pregnant People

NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today issued the following statement in response to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s lawsuit against the Biden administration’s rule that abortions are required in medical emergencies in order to save the life of the pregnant person:

“If the Attorney General of Texas were actually ‘pro-life,’ he would do anything possible to save the life of a mother faced with a dire medical emergency. Instead, he is again taking dangerous, malicious, and inhumane action that would jeopardize the lives of so many. I am sickened by his disregard for the safety of Americans, but make no mistake: I will fight back and take action to protect access to this critical care.”
