Friends, there is a morally outrageous bill that has now been signed into law by @GovTimWalz. This bill is the most radical abortion law in the country. We must continue to stand against this barbarism. Pray for the conversion of hearts and minds. pic.twitter.com/9A2CI3Xq5w

A new Minnesota abortion law strips away every single regulation on human abortion. The Protect Reproductive Options Act claims that every person has a fundamental right to make “autonomous decisions” regarding their own ‘reproductive healthcare,’ unless, of course, you’re still in the womb.
Minnesota Republican Minority Leader Mark Johnson calls the law the most extreme in the US:
“Today we are not just codifying Roe v Wade or Doe v Gomez [a Minnesota Supreme Court pro-abortion decision], as the author has indicated, we are enacting the most extreme bill in the country.”
Minnesota Republicans tried to limit 3rd trimester abortions and provide protections for babies who survive their abortions to no avail, losing the vote by a single vote, 34 to 33.
Robert Barron, Bishop of the Winona/Rochester Diocese, was even more forceful, characterizing the bill as “the worst type of barbarism.” You can hear his complete reaction in the Tweet above.
The Minnesota abortion law is the same type of law Planned Parenthood and their political allies want to enact in all 50 states, including Iowa, since Roe v Wade was overturned. In Iowa, Pulse Life Advocates and our allies in the Iowa Coalition of Pro Life Leaders stand in their way.
