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.

Require exposure of abortion clinic employees for licensure

Legislative Summary: SF704 / HF812: Abortion facilities licensure requirement

Analysis by Planned Parenthood : This bill compromises patient and provider privacy, putting their safety at risk. This bill requires that abortion clinics report the names and license numbers of all "health care professionals" who work at the clinic in their applications for licensure. A politically motivated Commissioner of Health could use this legislation to target abortion providers for harassment.

Veto Message: House File 809 infringes upon women's basic right to health and safety--a right of every woman, regardless of the type of health insurance she has. This bill would interfere with critical medical decisions that should be made between a woman and her doctor.

  • 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.

    Fischbach supports the AFA survey question on Planned Parenthood

    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)
