Minnesota Reproductive Health Advocates Denounce Attacks on Safe, Legal Abortion; Praise Efforts to Protect Birth Control Coverage
Minnesota Legislators and supporters gathered in the Minnesota State Office Building to denounce efforts by Senate Republicans to ban abortion later in pregnancy and to applaud the Minnesota House leadership for standing up for affordable, accessible birth control for Minnesotans.
The Minnesota House of Representatives debated HF 1414, a bill that requires Minnesota schools to teach medically-accurate, age-appropriate, comprehensive sex education. Currently, Minnesota has no statewide standard for sex education in schools.
Introduced by Rep. Todd Lippert (DFL-Northfield) and Sen. Susan Kent (DFL-Woodbury), HF 1414 / SF 2065 would require Minnesota schools to teach medically-accurate, age-appropriate, comprehensive sex education. Comprehensive sex education will strengthen our communities. Now is the time for our leaders to stand up for healthy relationships and healthy futures for young people in Minnesota by supporting this important legislation.
