Michelle Fischbach on Abortion

 

 


Proudly pro-life and supports pro-life legislation

We must protect the unborn, who have the fundamental right to life, and defend the sanctity of innocent human life at all stages. I will stand up to efforts by the radical left to promote infanticide and taxpayer-funded abortions for illegal immigrants. I am proudly pro-life and will always support legislation that protects innocent human life and defends the sanctity of life at all stages.

Stricter licensure requirements for abortion facilities

Legislative Summary:˙SF1921 would:Veto letter excerpts:
  • [Regarding surgery rules]: Clinics are very different from surgical centers. For example, under surgery center rules, clinics would be prevented from offering other services such as primary and preventive care.
  • There are six abortion clinics in Minnesota which would be affected by the legislation. All are members of the National Abortion Federation which sets clinical policy standards and inspects every member.
  • There is sufficient oversight of clinics, and there is no evidence of poor quality or unsafe procedures being performed.Legislative Outcome:˙Passed House 80-47-6 on April 20; passed Senate 43-23-1 on April 18; State Sen. Michelle Fischbach voted YES; vetoed by Gov. Dayton on May 22.

    Strongly Anti-Planned Parenthood, according to AFA survey.

    The AFA inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments'? Self-description: (American Family Association helps produce iVoterGuides): "Grounded in God; rooted in research"; they "thoroughly investigate candidates"; when they cannot "evaluate with confidence, they receive an 'Insufficient' rating" (& we exclude)
