Dayton on Woman's Right to Know

"I am appalled that Minnesota's 24-hour waiting period law [Woman's Right to Know] uses extremely biased language against a woman's making her own decisions about her own body [i.e., abortion]. I will oppose further attempts to interfere with a woman's Constitutionally guaranteed right make those decisions."

-- Mark Dayton

(Woman's Right to Know was passed in 2003 to ensure that women considering abortion receive basic factual information -- from the Minnesota Department of Health -- about the risks and alternatives. More than 10,000 women who have received this vital information have chosen life for their unborn children.)
