Arkansas Attorney General tells pro-abortion groups to cease and desist after blatantly violating this law

The radical pro-abortion lobby will do anything to keep the blood money flowing in.

And they don’t care if they break the law to do so.

That’s why the Arkansas Attorney General told these radical pro-abortion groups to cease and desist after they blatantly violated this law.

Arkansas Attorney General Tim Griffin recently sent cease and desist letters to two companies that he says are providing chemical abortion pills through the mail. 

Violating state law to promote abortion

Griffin accused both the pro-abortion companies Aid Access and Choices Women’s Medical Center of violating the Arkansas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.

“Abortions are prohibited in Arkansas… consequently abortion pills may not legally be shipped to Arkansas,” Griffin’s letters to the two companies stated.

He said both groups’ business practices are “false, deceptive and unconscionable.” 

Griffin then threatened both companies with a $10,000 civil penalty for each individual violation and said he would take further action if they did not cease and desist selling the chemical abortion drug in Arkansas in 14 days. 

Griffin said he took the action because both the companies are advertising the chemical abortion drug for sale by mail in Arkansas. 

Jeff LeMaster, a spokesman for the Attorney General said: “language on both of the companies’ websites” is what concerns the Attorney General. 

LeMaster also said Griffin wants both companies to answer the concerns in writing.

In 2023, Joe Biden’s Department of Justice issued an opinion on the deadly chemical abortion drugs at the urging of Attorney General Merrick Garland. 

A truly bizarre ruling by the Biden administration

The DOJ ruled the U.S. Postal Service can legally send abortion pills by mail, making the bizarre claim that the person sending the chemical abortion pills through the mail cannot know how the pills will be used.

That’s like saying it should be legal to sell fentanyl through the mail because after all the sender doesn’t know what people will use it for. 

And Griffin correctly points out the DOJ memo “badly misinterprets federal law and has no bearing on my enforcement of the Arkansas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.”

In 2019, Arkansas’ pro-life trigger law went into effect when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade

The law outlawed all abortions except to save the life of the mother.

In response to Griffin’s letter, Aid Access said they are registered in Austria, so they are not beholden to the Arkansas Attorney General. 

While the company claims they do not advertise in the United States, they did admit they do ship abortion pills like mifepristone in three to five days, with services available in all 50 states. 

They disagree that it violates any American laws. 

Dr. Rebecca Gomperts, the group’s director said in a statement:

“It is very important that women living in Arkansas who obtain the abortion pills and use it to end their pregnancies know that they are allowed to do that and are not breaking the law.”

And in a statement to Little Rock Public Radio, Merle Hoffman, founder of the New York-based Choices Women’s Medical Center, said she’s adamant the letter does not apply to her company.

“Choices is not shipping abortion pills anywhere,” she said. “Nothing is going in the mail from Choices.”

Griffin is standing strong and continues to threaten fines if the two companies do not respond and stop selling the deadly drugs in the Natural State.
