A 20-week abortion ban (SF 1609) will be heard in the Minnesota Senate Health and Human Services Finance committee this Thursday, March 14th. NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota and Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota strongly oppose this legislation, which would criminalize doctors and harm patients. Join us at the hearing to stand in solidarity against this dangerous legislation. The hearing will take place at the Minnesota Senate Building in Room 1200. While the committee hearing begins at 3:00 PM, it is likely SF 1609 will not be heard until about 5:30 PM (after the committee recess).

If you would like to take the Green Line with NARAL staff to the Minnesota Senate Building, please meet us outside our office at 2300 Myrtle Avenue, Ste 120, St. Paul, MN 55114 by 5:00 PM on 3/14. We will depart from the office promptly at 5:00 PM. If you would like to meet us at the Minnesota Senate Building, plan to arrive no later than 5:30 PM.

Please note that attendees may NOT chant, cheer, or boo during the hearing or bring signs into the hearing room. We request your presence in a quiet, respectful demonstration of solidarity in opposition to SF 1609 and in support of the individuals testifying against this bill. Testifiers have been prearranged - we ask that attending supporters refrain from testifying against the bill.
