Time magazine: Abortion activists losing the battle
Abortion numbers have dropped in eight of the last nine years in Minnesota to their lowest level since 1974, confirming the success of life-affirming laws including Woman’s Right to Know and Positive Alternatives, which provide women with abortion information and alternatives and empower them to choose life for their unborn children—and themselves.
Women are turning away from abortion and embracing life in greater numbers, according to the state’s 2015 Abortion Report. The Minnesota Department of Health report shows that 99% of abortions are done at five abortion facilities.
The 2015 total of 9,861 represented a decrease of 2.6 percent and the lowest annual number since 1974.
Planned Parenthood proved again to be Minnesota’s largest abortionist, increasing its abortions by 28.5 percent from 2011 to 2015. State abortion totals declined 11 percent over the same four-year period. Planned Parenthood’s 2015 total of 5,048 abortions was its highest number ever, and a record market share of 51.2 percent of all abortions performed in Minnesota.

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 $22.5 million to abortion centers for those abortions. Nearly all of these abortions have been elective.
Taxpayer funded abortions have become a larger percentage of all Minnesota's abortions year after year. That percentage rose to 39% in 2014, due to a 16% increase in publicly funded abortions over the previous year.
Minnesota is one of only a handful of states forcing 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.
After 20 years it is time to re-examine and reverse this unjust decision. Read more ...
