Minnesota Democrats pushed the most radical abortion bill in the nation in January and last night they expanded their radical agenda on abortion. The House passed HF366 sponsored by radical leftist Esther Agbaje (HD59B) and would force our state to disregard judgments in other states. The vote was 68-62, with rural Democrat Gene Pelowski (HD26A) as the only “Nay” vote from the DFL House.
The Democratic agenda has been fast-paced and morally bankrupt this legislative session. They do not care if what they are pushing is Constitutional, truthful, or good for the citizens of our state. The Democrats are simply focused on using their power to the fullest extent and destroying Minnesota. In many instances, woke Democrats used the term "pregnant people" instead of "pregnant women" showing off their insanity.
HF366 is a bill that violates Article IV, Section 1 of the US Constitution which is the “Full Faith and Credit Clause”. This section of the Constitution guarantees that states must respect the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other state. HF366 requires that our state provides legal protections to individuals who violated abortion laws in other states; This can be found in Section 6 and 7 of the bill. See below:
These provisions are clearly a violation of the Constitution as it seeks to make Minnesota a refuge and sanctuary state for individuals who got illegal abortions. It is not the duty of any state to upend the judicial system of another. This is beyond legal protections for individuals who got an abortion in Minnesota, this is a bill that affects the entire country!
Some Republican Legislators argued that this bill will cause a surge in trafficked children to get abortions in Minnesota. There was also concern that doctors and medical personnel with telehealth in Minnesota will not be penalized when they illegally push abortions, abortion treatments, and abortion guidance in states where abortion is illegal or laws are extremely different.
Democrats know this bill is illegal and will have to defend their unconstitutional ideas in court so they will be appropriating an undisclosed amount of money to Attorney General Antifa Keith Ellison’s massive budget. The fiscal note of the bill states that they anticipate legal challenges but they will not tell us how much of our overtaxed Surplus dollars will be spent on this. The assumption in the fiscal note also states that they are basing this off of the unconstitutional, anti-freedom lawsuits Ellison took up during the Covid lockdowns. See below:
Minnesota Democrats are unhinged and will stop at nothing until their socialist and amoral agenda is fully implemented. It is up to the Senate to stop this nonsense. Contact your Senator and demand that they oppose HF366! It is up to Patriots like you and I to save our state!
