Woman's Right to Know Act

Woman's Right to Know Act

During the 2003 legislative session, the Minnesota Legislature passed the Woman's Right to Know Act. This legislation requires physicians to provide women with certain information at least 24 hours prior to an abortion and to collect and report to the Minnesota Department of Health the number of women who were provided this information. The legislation also directs MDH to develop and make available certain materials, to collect information from physicians and to issue an annual report.
