Alabama Attorney General (AG) Steve Marshall received an endorsement from Alabama Citizens for Life (ACL). Marshall is running for reelection to his position as the AG in the upcoming primary on May 24. 

With Marshall maintaining a pro-life position during his tenure as AG, the endorsement comes as no surprise. 

ACL is the state arm of the National Right to Life, a national pro-life organization that has long advocated for pro-life policies across the U.S.

The ACL released a statement praising Marshall for his commitment to pro-life causes and thanking him for his work in advancing that conviction. 

"Your advocacy for Alabama's 48-hour waiting period law, defending the constitutionality of Alabama's law banning dismemberment abortions, working to uphold our State's law prohibiting abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, protecting churches from being forced to pay for abortions, and leading a coalition of Attorneys General asking Congress to restore the Hyde Amendment to prohibit taxpayer funding of abortion, as well as defending many other respect-life laws have been a blessing for all in Alabama," ACL President Dan Gardner said. "You have worked diligently to protect women and preborn babies and have our respect and appreciation as a defender for life.  We sincerely appreciate your consistent life ethic as demonstrated by your championing Alabama Pro-Life legislation all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court."

Since The United States Supreme Court seems poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, the AG will play a pivotal role in what comes afterward. 

Should the SCOTUS opinion move forward as drafted in the unprecedented leak that was released on Monday, the AG will be in charge of appealing injunctions put on previous Alabama laws restricting abortions. 

"I am honored to be recognized by Alabama Citizens for Life as a Pro-Life Leader,” Marshall said. “Protecting the unborn is one of my most significant roles as Alabama's Attorney General. I thank Alabama Citizens For Life and President Dan Gardner for their recognition of our work while serving as Attorney General.  Alabama Citizens for Life is on the front lines of the fight to protect women and preborn babies, and I thank them for their work."
