Weber responds to new state abortion legislation
Democrats in the Minnesota Senate early Saturday morning -- after a marathon 14-plus-hour debate -- passed a bill to put abortion rights into Minnesota law. It's expected Gov. Tim Walz will sign the legislation on Tuesday.
District 21 Sen. Bill Weber (R- Luverne) released the following statement in response:
“The extreme abortion bill goes too far and takes steps far beyond codifying current law, though Democrats have tried to lead us to believe otherwise. This legislation is the most severe, radical abortion bill in the nation and rivals just a handful of countries in the world. And I know that this is not what most Minnesotans want. I remain committed to standing up for the fundamental right to life and working toward policies that will defend mothers and babies.”
The bill passed on party lines, 34-33.
