Washington, D.C.: Today the Eagle Forum Education & Legal Defense Fund filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court of the United States in support of Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron’s defense of Kentucky state law and the right to life.
“Daniel Cameron swore an oath to faithfully execute the duties of his office. The U.S. Supreme Court should let him to do his job,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles and Eagle Forum Education & Legal Defense Fund. “HB 454 was passed by the duly elected representatives of the people of Kentucky and signed into law by their duly elected governor in 2018. Attorney General Cameron, who also bears the stamp of electoral approval from Kentucky’s citizens, absolutely has the responsibility and the authority to defend the Commonwealth’s laws in court. The Supreme Court ought to find no other conclusion.”
Martin continued, “At the heart of this case on procedure is the left’s continued attempts to use ‘Lawfare’ against the will of We the People. We cannot allow a radical agenda to rule over the will of voting citizens and the authority of legislative bodies by taking their case to activist judges and courts. This abuse of the legal system as a way to make and change, rather than interpret, law must be stopped.”
