On Abortion: Minnesota will protect reproductive freedom including IVF

When Roe v. Wade was overturned in 2022, the door was wide open for this kind of attack on families. Here in Minnesota, we took action after Roe v. Wade fell, writing protections for reproductive freedom into our state laws, and making sure that people-- not politicians--can make their own reproductive choices. And that includes IVF. So let me make this clear: As long as I'm Governor, IVF will continue to offer a lifeline of hope for Minnesota families.

On Gun Control: Students should worry about pop quizzes not mass shootings

High school students should be worried about pop quizzes and prom dates--not mass shootings. And that's why, as Governor, I've made it a point to take on the NRA. Last year, we implemented red flag laws and strengthened background checks. Tonight, I'm urging the legislature to join me in making our schools and our communities a little bit safer still by strengthening requirements for safe storage of firearms, reporting lost and stolen guns, and increasing criminal penalties for straw purchasers.
