St. Paul – Today, Ramsey County Judge Thomas Gilligan issued a district court ruling which struck down longstanding pro-life law in Minnesota. The court’s decision blocked state statutes requiring a 24-hour waiting period, two-parent notification for minors, and felony penalties for abortion providers that violate state regulations.
State Representative Tim Miller (R-Prinsburg) released the following statement regarding this case:
“Judge Gilligan’s decision is reckless, immoral, and destructive. This ruling is proof that the abortion industry is not about safe or fewer abortions; their goal is more abortions. They kill for profit and call it ‘healthcare.’
We need to ask ourselves, where was the consideration for the unborn child in this ruling? Furthermore, do we really want one person deciding abortion laws like this? I am going to speak for the children who have no voice. I am going to speak for the mothers who have been deceived by monsters.
Minnesota is moving on a fast track to be a national abortion hub. I will not allow that to happen. This should be a wakeup call for everyone that believes an unborn child is human and deserves to be treated as one. I hope you join me.”
Rep. Tim Miller represents District 17A in the Minnesota House of Representatives.
