Governor Mark Dayton vetoes another piece of anti-choice legislation, while the sponsor of a bill to ban RU-486 calls Viagra a “drug for life.”
Governor Mark Dayton vetoed the bill saying it unfairly targeted abortion clincis.
The Republican controlled legislature wants to make it a felony if a doctor is not in the room when RU-486 is dispensed, and create new licensing requirements for clinics that provide abortions.
I suggest that that these doctors’ statements point to a paradox of the abortion conflict in the United States; whether abortion provider or supporter, engagement with this issue introduces these clinicians to a diverse group of allies, with a shared sense of mission, that is rare elsewhere in medicine.
What exactly is so embarrassing about birth control?
As Republicans shut down the vote on the proposal, Franson explained that she was “embarrassed” that contraception was even being talked about by the House.
The Republican dominated House and Senate appear likely to vote through new abortion restrictions.
