We’ve dramatically expanded abortion access in Minnesota. Let’s keep going.
UnRestrict Minnesota works to protect, expand, and destigmatize access to abortion care–and all reproductive healthcare—in Minnesota through public education, advocacy, and the law.
Our vision is to achieve full reproductive justice, an organizing framework created by Black women where every person has the ability to decide if, when, and how to become a parent; raise healthy children in safe and thriving communities; and have gender freedom and bodily autonomy.
We are led by a multi-racial coalition of LGBTQ+ advocates, faith communities, clinicians, activists, doctors, abortion funds, lawyers, organizers, healthcare clinics, doulas, podcasts, and more. Learn more about our partners.
Reproductive Freedom Lobby Day 2024
After last year’s huge wins to ensure Minnesotans have the legal right to reproductive freedom, we must keep the momentum going to secure meaningful access to reproductive health, rights and justice in Minnesota.
Mark your calendars for Thursday, March 7! Reproductive Freedom Lobby Day activities will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with legislator meetings and workshops scheduled throughout the day.
The UnRestrict Minnesota Guide to Getting an Abortion
We all deserve the opportunity to live a safe, healthy, and fulfilling life—and sometimes that can include having an abortion.
With the UnRestrict Minnesota Guide to Getting an Abortion, we hope to make this process a little easier and to reduce the stress so that you can focus on you and your safety, care, and comfort.
The restrictions are gone —
but our work must go on.
It’s true. In a single, historic legislative session, we’ve dismantled five decades of anti-abortion restrictions. We’ve enshrined the right to abortion in Minnesota law. And we’ve made our state a safe haven for everyone who needs, provides, or helps someone get abortion care.
But significant barriers to abortion and reproductive health care access remain — and we need your help to clear them away.
READ OUR BEYOND ROE AGENDA — and get a preview of what’s coming next for UnRestrict Minnesota.
Join the millions of Minnesotans who agree everyone should have the power and ability to make healthy decisions about their own bodies, decide whether and when to become a parent, and raise healthy children in our communities if we decide to become parents.
