Guttmacher Institute (PP's statistical arm) says 2012 is the second biggest year for passage of pro-life laws.
Time magazine says abortionists are losing the battle.
Precinct caucuses will be held across Minnesota on Tuesday, March 1. Pro-life citizens are urged to attend their caucus. Pro-life laws will not be enacted unless pro-lifers are active in grassroots politics.
Precinct caucuses are the birthplace of each election. Since so few people attend their caucus, you can have a tremendous influence on the election by your presence.
Electing pro-life delegates and alternatives is the first priority of pro-lifers. In addition, resolutions passed at the precinct level can become part of your party's state platform. Sample pro-life resolutions are available on the MCCL website. Any caucus attendee may propose a resolution.
Find your precinct caucus location here. All caucuses begin at 7 p.m. Please dedicate an hour or two of your time to uphold the right to life by attending your caucus on March 1. And bring your pro-life neighbors with you!
Assisted suicide looms as a tangible threat to Minnesotans. Our law that prohibits assisting suicide has been upheld in two recent court cases, but even so, efforts are underway to overturn that law.
A bill to legalize assisted suicide was introduced in the 2015 legislative session. Author Sen. Chris Eaton is promoting her bill in meetings across the state.
MCCL has always opposed legalized assisted suicide. The threats of coercion and abuse, suicide contagion, misdiagnoses, carelessness and trauma among survivors make the practice of assisted suicide too dangerous. People struggling with illness and disability need support and care, not help to kill themselves.
To further understand these dangers, see our assisted suicide web page, brochure and our contagion white paper.

Did you know that your taxes pay for abortions? The Minnesota Supreme Court imposed taxpayer funded abortions for low-income women in its 1995 Doe v. Gomez ruling.
It has been 20 years and more than 73,000 tax-funded abortions since the decision. Taxpayers have been forced to pay $21.5 million to abortion centers for those abortions. Nearly all of these abortions have been elective.
The ruling also "found" a "right" to abortion in the 150-year-old Minnesota Constitution—just as the U.S. Supreme Court did in its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. If Roe, which overturned every protective state law and legalized abortion on demand nationwide, is ever overturned, Minnesota will still have abortion on demand.
Minnesota is one of only a handful of states requiring taxpayers to pay for elective abortions, something not required by the U.S. Supreme Court. The Court ruling also permits dismemberment abortions—and requires taxpayers to pay for them.
On this 20th anniversary of the ruling, it is time to re-examine and reverse this unjust decision. Read more ...
