Here is a link to a Scotusblog report on the Court’s decision in Cameron v. EMW Women’s Surgical Center, P.S.C. On March 3, 2022, the Court reversed a Sixth Circuit decision that had refused to allow Daniel Cameron, the Attorney General of Kentucky, to intervene in a suit involving the constitutionality of a Kentucky statute banning dismemberment abortions.
After the Sixth Circuit affirmed a lower court ruling finding the Kentucky statute unconstitutional, the Kentucky Governor decided not to pursue further efforts to defend the constitutionality of the statute. Cameron then sought to intervene but the Sixth Circuit refused to allow intervention. The Supreme Court ruled, by an 8-1 vote, that the Sixth Circuit’s ruling on intervention was in error. The Supreme Court’s decision will allow Cameron to pursue efforts to defend the constitutionality of the Kentucky statute.
The Court’s ruling will help to ensure that pro-life legislation is defended in court, even in situations when the state’s governor doesn’t support the law.
