Attorney General Tim Griffin is leading a coalition of 17 states that is challenging the abortion mandate



Little Rock, Arkansas – Attorneys General Tim Griffin of Arkansas and Jonathan Skrmetti of Tennessee will contest a new rule demand from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

Arkansas, Tennessee, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, and West Virginia are the states that have joined the coalition, which is co-led by Griffin and Skrmetti, in an attempt to overturn the EEOC’s abortion accommodation mandate.

In 2022, the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA) was created to safeguard pregnant workers and their unborn children by offering accommodations. The state’s attempts to defend the life and rights of unborn children are in contradiction with the new addition, which offers treatment for abortions.

Many people who oppose abortion accommodation contend that it skews public perception of PWFA.

“This is yet another attempt by the Biden administration to force through administrative fiat which it cannot get passed through Congress,” says Griffin. “Under this radical interpretation of the PWFA, business owners will face federal lawsuits if they don’t accommodate employees’ abortions, even if those abortions are illegal under state law. The PWFA was meant to protect pregnancies, not end them.”
