Since the nineties, Minnesota has been one of the few states that provided Medicaid-funded abortions. Following the 1995 case Doe v. Gomez, Minnesota's supreme court ruled that if the state was to cover costs associated with pregnancy, it must also cover those associated with abortion, or it would place "undue financial constraints," on women seeking out terminations, essentially limiting the right to an abortion only to those with financial means.
The state's anti-choice politicians have taken aim at the ruling before, attempting legislation to end "taxpayer funding" of abortions in an attempt to challenge Doe, but even in the most recent attempt, when the state had the greatest number of anti-choice legislators in history, the legislation was vetoed by the governor. Now, Minnesota Family Council, one of the biggest opponents to Doe's decision, has found a new way to try and change the law. Start a new lawsuit.
