"I didn’t have any symptoms. I didn’t have any idea what was going on inside my body. But I am so glad I scheduled that appointment at Planned Parenthood. If I hadn’t made that appointment, my story could be very different. Planned Parenthood saved my life."
Supporters came together with thousands of Minnesotans to brave the cold and once again flood the streets during the Women’s March in Saint Paul. Looking out over a sea of pink, it was undeniable: We are powerful. We are resilient. We are unstoppable.
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.
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.
As we celebrate the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we continue to fight attacks on safe, legal abortion. It is more important than ever to protect access to the full range of reproductive health care—including safe, legal abortion. Now is the time to take the energy and victories from the 2018 midterm elections and turn them into real and tangible policy change in Minnesota.
On the heels of the historic 2018 midterm election, we're ready protect and expand access to reproductive health care in Minnesota.
With relentless attacks on health care from the Trump-Pence administration and harsh restrictions on reproductive rights being passed by state governments across the country, it is more critical than ever that we continue to fight to ensure Minnesota remains a stronghold for reproductive rights in the Midwest. Are you ready to get to work? Here’s how to make a difference in 2019.
Women of color, indigenous women, trans women, immigrant women, and disabled women are leading the movement. In 2018, women of all identities and backgrounds continued to make history and reach new heights in our society. From the ballot box to the music industry, women shaped history this year. Here’s how women rocked 2018.
In 2018 Planned Parenthood supporters resisted, persisted, and voted. Victories in Minnesota were powered by YOU—women, people of color, LGBTQ people, Planned Parenthood patients, and young people—who stepped up, took action, and made change. Because of you, we’re starting 2019 stronger than ever.
