Pro-life groups converge on State Capitol as controversial abortion bill moves forward
Hundreds of pro-life Minnesotans rallied in the State Capitol Rotunda and then fanned out to lobby their lawmakers — on the same day a controversial abortion bill moved closer to a vote in the Minnesota House. Moses Bratrudwith the Minnesota Family Council says they’re not giving up on stopping it:
“I heard very clearly from Democratic representatives… that there are members of the D-F-L Caucus who are very hesitant about that bill. So we are working the phones, we’re working with legislative meetings. This day (Tues) of course is a big part of that.”
The bill would repeal a number of anti-abortion laws that courts have struck down, but which remain on the books in Minnesota. Among them: parental notification when a minor seeks an abortion, and a law requiring medical care be given to a fetus born alive due to an unsuccessful abortion.
