Incoming MN Senate leader supports putting abortion-rights guarantees in state law

Incoming state Senate Majority Leader Kari Dziedzic is among top Democrats talking about putting abortion-rights guarantees into state law, when Democrats control both chambers of the Minnesota Legislature in January.  Dziedzic says:

“I know a lot of my members did have those conversations on the door, and I have an interest in codifying Roe, so that will be one of the things that we have discussion on.  I think there is some support in our caucus for that, if not broad support.”

But Democrats will have only a one-vote majority in the Minnesota Senate — and some analysts question whether every rural D-F-Ler would support abortion rights legislation.  It would likely face strong opposition from Republicans in both the Senate and the House.
