Josh Shapiro Among Attorneys General Joining Justice Department's Lawsuit Against Texas Abortion Law

By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- Two dozen Democratic attorneys general, including Josh Shapiro, are joining the U.S. Department of Justice's fight against Texas' newly-passed abortion law.

Shapiro is among 23 leaders filing an amicus brief.

The group argues the law violates Roe V. Wade, which rules abortions are legal before a pregnancy is viable.

Last week, the Department of Justice announced it is suing Texas over the law, which bans abortions after six weeks of pregnancy.
