Minnesota Senate passes transgender protections, abortion ‘refuge’ bills

 | 
04/21/2023

The Minnesota Senate Friday passed a trio of proposals aimed at legally safeguarding people who come to Minnesota for abortion and gender-affirming care and outlawing what’s called conversion therapy for minors. The moves come as states around the country have banned or seriously limited access to abortion in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling overturning Roe v. Wade and after 12 states – including Minnesota’s neighbors Iowa, North Dakota and South Dakota – have banned gender-affirming care for minors. Passage of the bills in the Senate sends each proposal to Gov. Tim Walz’s desk, and he has said he will sign them.
