Washington, D.C. – Today SBA Pro-Life America’s Candidate Fund announced its endorsement of Liz Murrill (R) for attorney general of Louisiana.
“Liz Murrill is a courageous advocate for women and children of all ages and we are proud to endorse her for attorney general of Louisiana,” said Marilyn Musgrave, SBA Pro-Life America’s vice president of government affairs. “Liz has spent her career in public service fighting to safeguard the lives of unborn children, support women and families in need, and keep dangerous criminals including rapists and child predators behind bars. Louisiana is a deeply pro-life state, and in this new Dobbs era, strong attorney generals are critical to the fight for the people’s right to have their values reflected in the law. We stand behind Liz with confidence that she will protect moms and babies in Louisiana from the violence of abortion, and we encourage pro-life voters across Louisiana to do the same this election.”
Murrill was appointed the first solicitor general for Louisiana in 2016. She previously served as the Louisiana Department of Justice’s director of administration and, before that, director of the Civil Division. She has served as counsel to numerous offices in the state, including the governor’s office. For several years she volunteered at a domestic abuse shelter for women in Baton Rouge, working with children and on the crisis line.
Her efforts defending Louisiana’s pro-life laws, including at the U.S. Supreme Court, have earned her the 2022 Leadership for Life Award from Louisiana Right to Life and recognition from Louisiana Family Forum.
An eighth-generation Louisianan and longtime resident, she attended Louisiana State University for both her undergraduate and law degrees before obtaining a Master of Laws from Pepperdine University. She and her husband are the proud parents of four boys.
