Minnesota Republicans Risk Lives with Bill to Make Abortion Illegal, Unsafe

Planned Parenthood Action Fund Praises Governor Dayton for Protecting the Patient-Doctor Relationship

We commend Governor Dayton for vetoing SF 2849, which is completely unnecessary since women already have the option to view an ultrasound prior to an abortion. Governor Dayton showed once again that he believes patients deserve their physicians’ best medical judgment and counsel, not unnecessary mandates dictated by politicians.
