Carla Nelson Doesn't Share Our Values
As a Senator, Carla Nelson failed to protect access to affordable birth control in Minnesota, instead allowing employers to deny birth control coverage on religious grounds. 1
She opposes safe, legal abortion. She received a 100% voting score from groups who oppose abortion, even in cases of rape or incest. 2
Carla Nelson also voted to keep harmful conversion therapy in Minnesota. Conversion therapy is a discredited and dangerous practice that harms LGBTQ+ youth by using shame and intimidation tactics to pressure young people to change who they are. 3
Minnesotans care about our neighbors. We fight for health, equity, and safety. We deserve better than Carla Nelson.
