Thursday’s deadline

There will never be a ban on abortion in Minnesota under Governor Walz’s watch, John. Pitch in by Thursday’s end-of-quarter deadline to keep Minnesota pro-choice! Without Roe v. Wade as a safeguard, Governor Walz and Lt. Governor Flanagan now are the last line of defense for abortion rights in Min…
