Legislative Update from Rep. Mary Franson

Monday, July 11, 2022

Dear Friends,

Today a Minnesota district court struck down several longstanding and bipartisan pro-life laws in our state. This action shows the extreme lengths far left activists will go to make sure Minnesota does not value and protect life. Removing our bipartisan pro-life laws that protect women, such as requiring abortions to be performed by physicians, is a threat to the health and safety of mothers. 

Other provisions that were ruled unconstitutional include:

  • A law requiring abortions to be performed by physicians.
  • A law requiring second and third-term abortion to be performed in hospital settings.
  • A law imposing felonies for performing abortions outside of rules established by the Department of Health. 
  • A law requiring parental notification for minors obtaining an abortion

You can read the full decision here. I will keep working to defend our pro-life laws and I will fight to make sure this decision is overturned.
