Minnesota

Minnesota’s governance is split between pro-choice and anti-choice leadership. The state has imposed a constitutional limit on later abortions, permitting procedures only in cases where the life or health (physical or mental) of the woman is endangered. In these cases, a second physician is required to be in attendance. Minnesota also allows certain individuals or entities to refuse to provide women abortions. Furthermore, Minnesota also subjects abortion providers to burdensome restrictions not applied to other medical professionals via Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers (TRAP) laws.

Restrictions: 
Constitutionally limits abortion by gestational age after viability
Prohibits later abortion except to preserve a woman's life or health (physical or mental)
Requires second physician in attendance to treat a fetus if it is born alive
