Minnesota Abortion Law Post-Dobbs

In Doe v. Gomez, 542 N.W.2d 17, 27 (1995), the Minnesota Supreme Court “conclude[d] that the right of privacy under the Minnesota Constitution encompasses a woman’s right to decide to terminate her pregnancy.”  Applying this framework, Gomez held that Minnesota’s medical assistance and general assistance statutes could not deny funding for “therapeutic abortions” while providing public funds for childbirth-related medical services.
