Is it true that doctors can provide abortion up until the moment of birth in Minnesota?

No. Absolutely not. No one is performing abortions up until the moment of birth. There is no such medical procedure, and any suggestion otherwise is bad-faith propaganda aimed at hijacking and toxifying the public discussion. In reality, more than 90% of abortions in Minnesota occur within the first trimester. Abortions later in pregnancy happen for differing, private reasons, and sometimes in instances when a pregnant person risks severe injury or death if they continue with their pregnancy.

The decisions people must make for their health or their families are difficult enough without the cruelty, shame, stigma, and dangerous interference of politicians who have no knowledge of a person’s medical history or life. There is no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to pregnancy and maternal health.
