Abortion restriction bills make progress: Sen. Hoffman's bill would outlaw abortions after 20 weeks
Minnesota women would not be able to receive state-funded abortions and could get no abortion 20 weeks after conception in bills that appear more likely than ever to pass the Legislature this year.
Two committees approved the bills Tuesday, April 12. Full House and Senate votes are unlikely before May, but with the GOP holding ma-jorities in both houses the measures have better chances to pass than in past years when Democrats controlled at least one house.
