Guttmacher Institute (PP's statistical arm) says 2012 is the second biggest year for passage of pro-life laws.
Time magazine says abortionists are losing the battle.
Assisted suicide looms as a tangible threat to Minnesotans. Even as our law that prohibits assisting suicide has led to convictions in two recent court cases, efforts are underway to overturn that law.
A bill to legalize assisted suicide was introduced in the 2015 legislative session. Author Sen. Chris Eaton plans to promote her bill with meetings across the state this summer.
MCCL has always opposed legalized assisted suicide. The threats of coercion and abuse, suicide contagion, misdiagnoses, carelessness and PTSD among survivors make the practice of assisted suicide too dangerous. Vulnerable people struggling with illness and disability need support and care, not help to kill themselves.
To further understand these dangers, see our assisted suicide web page, brochure and our contagion white paper.
Taxpayer funded abortions rose to their highest percentage ever in Minnesota in 2013, according to a report released Apr. 1 by the Minnesota Department of Human Services. Minnesotans have been required to fund elective abortions since the 1995 Minnesota Supreme Court’s Doe v. Gomez decision. Since then, taxpayers have reimbursed the abortion industry $21.5 million for more than 69,000 abortions—nearly all of which were elective. A bill has been introduced in the Legislature (S.F. 683, H.F. 607) to prohibit taxpayer funded abortions. The House bill has been approved by several committees and is now before the full House. The measure would end the forced funding by taxpayers of this mistreatment of poor women and the killing of unborn children. Urge your state lawmakers to vote for this bill and stop this exploitation. Read the news release, legislative agenda and more about Doe v. Gomez ...
