Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost announced he has joined 23 other states in urging the United States Supreme Court to overturn Roe vs. Wade.
The brief was filed in a challenge to Mississippi law that bans most abortions after 15 weeks.
In a news release, Yost says the court is “unable to explain the constitutional source of a right to abortion, or even a consistent legal standard for determining when it is violated by a state law.”
"The jurisprudence of abortion has become like the 1960s fights over pornography--no one can say exactly what's allowed and what's not," Yost said. "It's like Justice Potter's definition of pornography: 'I know it when I see it.' It's time to end this failed experiment in judicial law-making and return the matter to the States."
Yost added the Constitution says nothing about abortion and it was generally regulated by state law until Roe v. Wade in 1973.
