Harris Scheduled to Tour Minnesota Health Center Offering Abortion Services

Vice President Harris is scheduled to visit a health clinic in Minnesota that provides abortion services as she highlights the importance of protecting reproductive health during an election year. A White House official confirmed that Harris will tour the facility, engage with staff, and learn about how Minnesota has been impacted by abortion bans in other states, which have required women seeking abortions to travel elsewhere. The clinic in the Twin Cities offers abortion services, birth control, and preventative wellness services.

This visit will reportedly be the first time in history that a president or vice president has visited a clinic that provides abortion services. During her visit, Harris is expected to address the Biden administration’s efforts to safeguard access to reproductive healthcare following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in June 2022. This trip to Minnesota is part of Harris’ post-State of the Union travel, where she has been focusing on the fight for abortion rights and highlighting the White House’s legislative achievements.

The Minnesota state enacted a statute in 2022 to protect the right to reproductive freedom, which includes abortion, contraception, and fertility services, all of which are safeguarded under the state constitution. However, following the Supreme Court’s ruling, other states have imposed restrictions on abortion, and concerns about access to in vitro fertilization (IVF) were raised by an Alabama court’s ruling that classified frozen embryos as people.

The Biden campaign has connected the efforts of states to restrict abortion with former President Trump, who is the presumptive GOP nominee for November. Trump has claimed credit for ending Roe v. Wade due to his appointment of three conservative Supreme Court justices.
