Abortion-up-to-birth amendment fails at legislature: Contact Gov. Walz now

You probably already heard the news: The legislature failed to pass the extreme ERA proposal that would put abortion-up-to-birth in the Minnesota Constitution.

This is a massive victory for unborn babies and their moms! For the time being, at least, those babies won’t be permanently excluded from protection by our Constitution.

Thank you for all you have done to make this victory possible. Over the last few months, thousands of you contacted your legislators and urged them to vote against the ERA. You shared our TV, radio, newspaper, and social media ads with your family and friends. You told others about Minnesota’s extreme abortion policy and the deceptive bill to enshrine it in our Constitution. You came to the Capitol for hearings and rallies to speak up for the unborn. You supported MCCL’s work and attended our special gala with Jim Caviezel.

And all of this has turned the tide toward life. A new poll found that 64 percent of Minnesotans don’t want abortion added to the ERA. More and more Minnesotans have been learning the facts and making their voices heard, and pro-abortion lawmakers are feeling the pressure.

But the battle is far from over. Even now, advocates of the ERA are demanding that Gov. Walz call a special session (an additional meeting of the legislature) to ram it through. Please help make sure that doesn’t happen!

Call Gov. Walz’s office at 651-201-3400. You can also send a message through this online form. Tell him that you don’t want a special session for the extreme pro-abortion ERA.

As we move forward into the summer and the critical 2024 election campaign, MCCL will continue to ramp up our efforts to rebuild a pro-life culture and restore protection for innocent human life in Minnesota. We have a lot of work to do, but yesterday was a big win and—we think—a sign of good things to come if we keep working together for life.

With gratitude and resolve,
