Ultrasound Bill (HF 1108 / SF 1168)

HF 1108 / SF 1168 would require providers to offer patients the option of viewing an ultrasound prior to an abortion. Patients already have the right to view their ultrasound. That’s not what this bill is about. This bill is about legislating the conversation that takes place between a doctor and a patient–which sets a dangerous precedent. Doctors, not politicians, should determine the health care needs of patients.

20 Week Ban (HF 1312 / SF 1609)

Introduced by Rep. Peggy Scott (R-Andover) and Sen. Benson (R-Ham Lake) HF 1312 / SF 1609, the “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” bans abortion after 20 weeks. This is unconstitutional legislation that threatens the health of patients and criminalizes doctors. This is just another attempt to restrict access to safe, legal abortion by challenging longstanding, United States Supreme Court and Minnesota Supreme Court precedence.

Heartbeat Bill (HF 271 / SF 869)

HF 271 / SF 869 would outlaw abortion from the moment a fetal heartbeat is detected through abdominal ultrasound—as early as six weeks, before most women even know they are pregnant. If enacted, it would effectively ban nearly all abortion in Minnesota, with rare exception. Every person should have the right to make personal, private health care decisions without political interference.

Proposed Abortion Ban Puts Minnesota Women’s Lives at Risk

HF 271 is a serious attack on Minnesotans' health and safety.  It bans abortion before most women even know they are pregnant and is fundamentally out of touch with the people of our state. This is an extreme move that jeopardizes Minnesotans' health, defying constitutional rights and all medical standards for reproductive health care.
