At Gender Justice, we know that gender equality cannot exist without meaningful access to comprehensive, quality health care, including abortion, in our own communities. We believe in a Minnesota where everyone is supported in their right to decide when or whether to parent.
Here’s the truth most Minnesotans don’t know: For decades, anti-abortion lawmakers in our state have been quietly passing laws that restrict abortion access, intimidate providers and patients, and increase costs.
This morning, Gender Justice, in partnership with the Lawyering Project, has filed a complaint in Minnesota's Second Judicial District on behalf of two healthcare providers and the First Unitarian Society. We are paving a new path forward for abortion access by demanding the removal of a series of retrograde laws enacted by politicians decades ago that undermine Minnesotans' right to decide for themselves whether to continue or end a pregnancy and to access to safe, legal care.
