In the wake of the Dobbs v. Jackson Supreme Court decision, many states have taken steps to limit and ban the practice of abortion. In fact, all four of Minnesota's neighbors have strong protections for the lives of the unborn. Unfortunately, Minnesota went in the opposite direction and liberalized its abortion laws. According to many abortion clinics in the state, demand has gone up drastically.
The murder of the unborn in Minnesota reached new heights when the far-left legislature passed the abortion sanctuary bill, officially allowing anyone to come to Minnesota for an abortion at any point in their pregnancy. By ignoring court orders and warrants, many brought up concerns that this would allow child traffickers to seek refuge in Minnesota. Nevertheless, the heartless far-left persisted.
Dr. Sarah Traxler, chief medical director for Planned Parenthood North Central States, told MPR News that people from both South Dakota and North Dakota are moving to Minnesota. Supposedly, for easy access to murder their unborn children.
In fact, Traxler and other abortion doctors are lamenting that the high demand for abortion is overwhelming their facilities.
It is sad that the left celebrates the slaughter of innocent lives within the borders of our state. However, not all hope is lost.
Florida was classified as a swing state for decades, voting for Barack Obama on a presidential level in both 2008 and 2012. In April of this year, they passed their heartbeat bill into law -- protecting the life of the unborn the moment a heartbeat can be detected.
If Florida can protect the unborn, so can Minnesota. All it takes are persistent activists and dedicated voters.
