Tim Pawlenty left Minnesota with a legacy of extreme laws that limit access to abortion in our state.

A Pawlenty-Fischbach administration would turn the clock back decades on women’s health and severely limit women’s access to cancer screenings and contraception. This ticket would impede the progress we’ve made on lowering rates of unintended pregnancy, teen pregnancy and abortion.
