Minnesota House Passes Tax-Funded Abortion Bans

Last week, the Minnesota state House passed two pro-life bills — the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, S.F. 649 and H.F. 936 — which would ban taxpayer funding of abortions after the 20th week from fertilization because medical research has shown evidence that a preborn child can feel intense pain. The Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life, the state's largest pro-life organization, states, "These bills represent the will of a large majority of Minnesotans, who oppose the inflicting of suffering upon unborn children and the forced funding of elective abortions. These mainstream measures enjoy broad bi-partisan support in the Legislature and among the people of Minnesota." []
