Introduced by Rep. Abigail Whelan (R-Ramsey), HF 2792 would ban abortion at the point of fertilization, confer personhood status on a fertilized egg, and makes performing an abortion a felony crime.
Politicians have no business making health care decisions for Minnesota women.
This bill is a dangerous, unconstitutional and blatant attempt at turning back 45 years of reproductive rights in the United States.
This assault on women would strip away any ability to terminate a pregnancy – with no exception for rape or incest - and would effectively ban certain types of birth control.
This bill shows how extreme Minnesota politicians have become. In 2018, Republican Representatives are showing their cards: they prefer to spend their time trying to ban abortion and cut access to family planning services rather than ensuring that Minnesotans’ access to no-cost birth control is protected from further attacks by the Trump Administration. These extremist policies are the wrong direction for Minnesota.
