Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D) signed a bill on Tuesday enshrining the right to an abortion up until the point of birth, after the state Senate voted 34-33 in favor of the bill on Saturday following 14 hours of heated debate.
“Today we are not just codifying Roe v. Wade or Doe v. Gomez as the author has indicated,” Senate Minority Leader Mark Johnson (R-East Grand Forks) lamented after the bill passed the state senate on Monday. “We are enacting the most extreme bill in the country regarding youth sterilization, late-term abortions and public viability for a vast array of new reproductive rights.”
The legislation, known as H.F. 1 or the Protect Reproductive Options (PRO) Act, was written to “cement in state law the right to access reproductive health care options including abortion, birth control, family planning help, and sterilization.”
The bill’s author, Sen. Jennifer McEwen (D) claimed the bill enshrines permanent abortion access across the state, no matter what state or federal courts may decide.
“The decisions of our courts, the upholding of our fundamental human rights, are only as strong as the judges that uphold them,” McEwen said. “We have a duty to answer the call of Minnesotans to truly protect those reproductive freedoms, to enshrine them not simply in case law, but in our statutory law. These are our values, this is the practice in Minnesota. This is what we believe.”
Meanwhile, Minnesota Concerned Citizens for Life co-executive director Cathy Blaeser compared the legislation to communist states such as China and North Korea, where abortion has long been used as a method of birth control.
“The PRO Act means a right to abort any baby for any reason at any time up to birth. It means that the elective killing of a human being in utero is perfectly legal even in the third trimester of pregnancy, when the child can feel excruciating pain and could live outside the womb. It means that parents have no right to know when their teenage daughter has been taken to undergo an abortion,” Blaeser said in a statement.
“Gov. Walz’s absolutist abortion policy puts Minnesota in the company of just a small handful of countries around the world, including North Korea and China,” she continued. “It is extreme, inhumane, and harmful to women and children who deserve so much better.”

How is this not murder? It’s really this simple; how disgusting.
John 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
One must decide if they are going to Love, trust and have faith in Jesus Christ, Son of God and obey the Word of God.
Or are going to follow and be disciples of Satan. One’s fate is entirely up to themselves.
Matthew 7:15-20 “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
Times like this, i;d love time travel to be real, so i could tell his parent(s), ABORT THIS WASTE of oxygen, before it becomes THIS!
Well, the Supreme Court said abortion was up to each state. This state wants to take full advantage of that and murder as many babies as possible. Will make a great addition to the California madness
since “late term abortions” are okay with him, it’s late in his term so can we abort him?
As McGiver would say, “Works for me.”
Abortion Up to the date of elections.,,after, that kill all their ideas and promoted programs in the cradle.
Remember, that the dead ALWAYS vote democrat, even if they were life long republicans!
How about we change the name of the death penalty to late term abortion? Democrats should then be all in favor of capital punishment
Killing the GUILTY is wrong in their eyes, but murdering the innocent is GOOD.. totally utterly backwards.
Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
That covers the abortionists and most politicians.
I certainly don’t feel calm or collected after reading this article. To say it is infuriating is an understatement. He will face the Lord Jesus Christ one day and will give account. He won’t have a choice and as a result, he will eternally rue the day he ever signed this bill. It would have been better for him to have a millstone wrapped around his neck and thrown into the sea than experience the consequences of what he’s just signed.
Hope the few that have survived and those few more that survive in the future enact a law to abort all 34 pro-abortionist. Pay back.
