Protesters rallied at the Minnesota State Capitol on May 21 to call for a stop to the abortion restrictions being instituted in some states. On Wednesday a coalition of medical providers, reproductive health care advocates and a faith-based group filed a lawsuit aimed at overturning a slate of Minnesota laws they say restrict access to abortion in the state.

A coalition of medical providers, reproductive health care advocates and a faith-based group filed a lawsuit Wednesday aimed at overturning a slate of Minnesota laws they say restrict access to abortion, a case that could challenge state elected officials who support abortion rights.

The complaint, filed Wednesday in Ramsey County District Court, targets a number of existing statutes, including a 24-hour waiting period, two-parent notification requirements for patients under 18 and a provision mandating that fetal remains are buried or cremated. The groups behind the challenge argue such laws deny women access to constitutionally protected abortion services and "impose burdensome and unnecessary restrictions on healthcare providers."
