RELEASE: Statement from Leader Daudt on lawsuit attacking Minnesota's pro-life laws

Wednesday, May 29, 2019

ST. PAUL, MN—House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, issued the following statement regarding a lawsuit filed Wednesday seeking to overturn Minnesota's pro-life laws, many of which were passed with bipartisan support and have been on the books for years.

"This lawsuit targets bipartisan, common-sense, pro-life laws that have been on the books in Minnesota for years, and is being brought forward by extreme groups that support the horrific practice of late-term abortion," Daudt said. "Attorney General Ellison must put his personal ideology aside and defend the laws of our state—we will be watching closely to make sure his office mounts a credible defense against this outrageous attack on Minnesota's pro-life laws."

The lawsuit targets Minnesota laws requiring a 24-hour waiting period, notification requirements for minors seeking an abortion, and a requirement that fetal remains be buried or cremated.
