Group heads to Minnesota State Capitol to protest abortion bans

Activists gathered at the Minnesota Capitol Tuesday to speak out against the recent abortion bans sought in states like Alabama and Georgia.

An energetic group of mostly women descended on the steps of the Capitol, fighting against an abortion ban in this state - or any state.

“We are standing here in solidarity with the people who are affected by the abortion bans happening in other states.  But, we also stand here for these people because abortion bans have been introduced here in the state of Minnesota,” said former Minnesota representative Erin Maye Quade.

As they held up posters and flags, activists chanted “Our bodies. Our choice.”
