ST. PAUL — State Rep. Tina Liebling does not share with most Minnesotans their desire to protect innocent unborn human life, according to Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life (MCCL), the state’s oldest and largest pro-life organization. The pro-abortion lawmaker from Rochester announced her candidacy for governor over the weekend.

“Rep. Liebling has been a legislative stalwart for NARAL and other organizations seeking to expand abortion,” said MCCL Executive Director Scott Fischbach. “She can always be relied upon to strongly oppose even moderate measures to protect unborn children and their mothers.”

Rep. Liebling is a staunch advocate of abortion on demand. In just the last six years she has voted repeatedly to oppose the protection of unborn babies who are capable of feeling pain, a ban on taxpayer funded abortion, a ban on dangerous telemedicine abortions, and the reporting of telemedicine abortions.

She has also voted 14 times against the licensing and inspection of abortion facilities in Minnesota, which remain unlicensed by the state.

Liebling has voted in favor of abortion coverage in the state’s MNsure medical insurance program.

“Rep. Liebling has fought pro-life legislation at every opportunity,” Fischbach said. “Minnesotans want a governor who will respect and protect our most vulnerable citizens—unborn babies.”
