Columbia, SC (WOLO) — State Attorney General Alan Wilson is joining a lawsuit to stop the federal funding of abortion.

According to the Attorney General’s office, the lawsuit which was filed by Ohio’s Attorney General does not challenge the right to an abortion.

12 states are included in the lawsuit.
