Minnesota’s Abortion Laws Face Challenge

Abortion restrictions at the state level have steadily been eroding women’s constitutional rights for several years. One state where restrictions are being legally challenged is Minnesota where a group of organizations have joined a lawsuit whose first hearing takes place this week. In the lawsuit, Doe Vs. Minnesota, the plaintiffs are listed as “DR. JANE DOE; MARY MOE; and FIRST UNITARIAN SOCIETY OF MINNEAPOLIS.” The suit makes the case that a number of anti-abortion measures are in violation of the state Supreme Court’s own ruling decades ago that affirmed women’s reproductive rights.
