Minn. House and Senate passed anti-abortion legislation

| No Comments

The Minn. House and Senate passed separate anti-abortion legislation on Wednesday, although Gov. Dayton will likely veto them, Fox 9 reported.

The House bill would require doctors to remain in the room with patients when the women took abortion drugs and require abortion clinics to pay a licensing fee, CBS Minnesota reported.

Proponents of the bill, including Rep. Joyce Peppin, argued that the abortion drugs are too dangerous for women to take without a doctor present.

Opponents of the bill sarcastically said that there are more dangerous drugs than abortion ones.

"There are fewer deaths from this drug than Viagra or even Tylenol. Certainly having a medical abortion is less dangerous than having a live birth," Rep. Tina Liebling said.
