The next steps for reproductive freedom
January 28, 2023
Early this morning, the Minnesota Senate passed the PRO Act, supporting and defending people’s right to make and act on the full spectrum of decisions available to them regarding their pregnancies and their reproductive health care without government interference.
This is an important first step to protect and expand reproductive freedom in Minnesota! We are so grateful for everyone who turned out yesterday for the Senate debate, wrote to legislators, and more.
Next up is the companion to the PRO Act, the Reproductive Freedom Codification Act HF91/SF70, which gets Minnesota’s harmful abortion restrictions off the books for good. If you have a moment this weekend, send a note to your legislators to keep this crucial legislation moving!
