Minnesota Abortion-Fetal Pain Law

Minnesota is the second state in America to have the Unborn Child Pain Prevention Act, second to Arkansas. This bill also appears to have greatly helped cut down on abortions:

"The Minnesota Department of Health says there were 13,788 abortions reported in 2004, compared to 14,174 in 2003 -- a decrease of nearly three percent.

The abortion report covers 2004, the first full year the Woman's Right to Know law was in place. The law requires abortion centers to inform women of abortion risks, complications and alternatives. It also provides women with facts on fetal development throughout gestation, the facts of fetal pain and other vital information.
In 2004, a total of 15,859 pregnant women sought out information about abortion services, but more than 2,100 decided against having an abortion." (Bold emphasis mine)

Precisely why those who scream teh loudest that they are pro-choice argue most vehemently against that choice being an informed one.
