Legislation was introduced on Monday to adopt a Texas-style abortion ban in Minnesota. In response, Senator Erin Murphy (DFL-St. Paul) issued the following statement:
“Across the country, we are seeing mounting attacks on legal abortion. That effort showed up today in Minnesota. On the first day of session, threats to our reproductive freedom, to the full range of health care, and to our autonomy as people are being advanced in the Minnesota legislature in the form of a Texas-style abortion ban. It is proof of the extremism demonstrated by Republican lawmakers in Minnesota. It is proof of what they want to impose on us if given the power.
“We will not allow it.”
