MCCL statement on Ellison decision not to appeal abortion ruling


MINNEAPOLIS — MCCL Executive Director Scott Fischbach issued the following statement in response to Attorney General Ellison's decision not to appeal the ruling in Doe v. Minnesota striking down pro-life laws in Minnesota:

"Doe v. Minnesota is an extreme and mistaken ruling that eliminated commonsense abortion policies in Minnesota. We are deeply disappointed that the attorney general has decided not to appeal it. No longer does Minnesota require parental notification prior to abortions performed on minors. No longer does Minnesota ensure that women receive informed consent information before they undergo the procedure. No longer do those performing surgical abortions have to be physicians. These longstanding and woman-empowering laws have been struck down, and the attorney general has decided to stop defending them. Too many of our leaders, including Gov. Walz, favor this no-limits approach to abortion rather than supporting reasonable laws that most Minnesotans can agree with."

Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life is Minnesota's oldest and largest pro-life organization. Founded in 1968, MCCL works through education, legislation, and political action to secure protection for innocent human life from conception until natural death. Learn more at
