Arkansas attorney general sends cease & desist letters to companies advertising delivery of abortion pills [View all]

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Arkansas Attorney General Tim Griffin is taking legal action against out-of-state companies he said are violating state law regarding abortion services, specifically abortion pills.

Griffin sent cease-and-desist letters on Tuesday to New York-based company, Women’s Health Medical Clinic and Aid Access out of the Netherlands.

He is pointing to two state laws as the legal grounds to take this action: the near-total abortion ban in Arkansas that went into effect in 2022, and the Deceptive Trade Practices Act.

DTPA allows Arkansas to sue vendors selling and shipping products banned in Arkansas to people living within state lines.
