Governor Tim Walz and Lt. Governor Peggy Flanagan Will Protect Our Rights
Our rights to control our own bodies and lives are on the ballot this November. Governor Walz and Lieutenant Governor Flanagan will protect safe, legal abortion in Minnesota. They have made an important promise to Minnesotans: "There will NEVER be an abortion ban on our watch."1
They understand that personal health care decisions, including abortion, should be between and patient and their doctor. The administration will fight to ensure every Minnesota can get the reproductive health care they need free from political interference.
The Walz-Flanagan administration has a record for fiercely pushing progress in Minnesota. During his tenure, Tim Walz:
- proposed increased funding to the Family Planning Special Project grant that increases access to vital sexual and reproductive health care,2
- joined 16 governors in calling for the United States Senate to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act on May 3, 2022,3
- and signed an Executive Order banning conversion therapy in Minnesota.4
