HF 2998 / SF 2644 would require that district and charter schools develop and implement a consent program for grades 8-12 to prevent and reduce incidences of sexual assault.

The Minnesota House of Representatives’ Health and Human Services Reform Committee advanced HF 3194, which requires health care providers to offer patients the option of viewing an ultrasound prior to an abortion.
HF 2998 / SF 2644 would require the Minnesota Department of Public Safety to create “Choose Life” license plates, with proceeds going to Positive Alternative to Abortion grantees (i.e. crisis pregnancy centers).
