What happens now that Minnesota’s abortion restrictions have been blocked?

Minnesotans who make the decision to end a pregnancy will be able to get the health care they need without the government trying to sway their decision one way or another. This also means the cost of abortion could decrease, and more providers trained to provide abortion care can offer their services in their communities–expanding access to more Minnesotans.

Like all other forms of health care in Minnesota, abortion care and providers will continue to be regulated for safety, privacy, and medical standards. They just won’t be subjected to targeted regulations designed specifically to stigmatize abortion and push it out of reach.
