Gov. Dayton denies pro-life efforts in veto

| May 12, 2017 | 2 Comments

Gov. Mark Dayton vetoed two pro-life bills May 10 after the House and Senate passed both in previous weeks.

One bill, H.F. 809, would have ended taxpayer funding of abortions, a measure which Dayton also vetoed in 2011. The other bill, H.F. 812, required licensing and inspections of any medical facility that performs 10 or more abortions monthly. The bill’s requirements of  inspections conformed to those of the abortion industry, according to Minnesota Citizens for Life.

Minnesotans have paid taxes for abortions since the 1995 Doe v. Gomez trial in the Minnesota Supreme Court. Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life reported that taxpayers have paid more than $23 million through 2015, marking the first 20 years since the decision.
