These are the Corporations Funding Anti-Abortion Conservatives in Minnesota.

Minnesota conservatives have a long track record of working to upend abortion rights and restrict access to reproductive health care by any means possible. 

The most recent tactic: Minnesota’s conservative congressional delegation – Representatives Brad Finstad, Michelle Fischbach, and Pete Stauber – joined an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to ban the use of a life-saving abortion medication.

As we speak, the United States Supreme Court is considering a case that would restrict access to the abortion drug mifepristone. Mifepristone is safe and effective and has been used by more than five million people in the United States for abortion and miscarriage care since the FDA approved it more than 20 years ago. 

In 2023, sixty-one percent of abortions performed in Minnesota were administered through medication. So even though Minnesota has legal protections for abortion care, the case could still have devastating effects by banning the medication used for the procedure.

The ruling could also prohibit shipments of other medical supplies used in clinics, effectively suppressing abortion procedures in all 50 states. 

Which corporations donated to the Minnesota conservatives that want to ban abortion?

While pushing for extreme anti-choice legislation, Brad Finstad, Michelle Fischbach, and Pete Stauber are simultaneously raking in donations from some of America’s giant mega-corporations.

Among the donors are the mega-corporations Koch Industries, Amazon, and Chevron, who are known for their exploitative labor practices, price-gouging during the pandemic, devastating climate destruction, and massive CEO paychecks. 

In 2023, Amazon’s profits nearly tripled, bringing in 143 billion dollars in revenue while raising prices on goods and services that affected over 200 million Americans. 

Koch Industries has not only donated billions of dollars to anti-worker conservative causes in Congress but has been a leader in suppressing efforts to regulate Big Tech companies, has pushed to gut environmental regulations for corporations, and advocated for tax cuts that put corporate interests over the needs of working families. 

A woman’s doctor’s office is no place for corporate interest. And a ban on abortion medication would be devastating to Minnesotans who deserve the right to control our own bodies and lives. 

That’s why we’re furious that some of America’s largest corporations have made campaign contributions to the three Minnesota conservatives pushing to ban medication abortion. 

Clearly, these corporations have many political interests, and none are looking out for Minnesotans’ needs and wants. 

We need to hold conservatives accountable

Sixty percent of Minnesota voters say abortion should be legal in all or most cases, and sixty-five percent would oppose new severe restrictions on abortion. 

But Brad Finstad, Michelle Fischbach, and Pete Stauber don’t seem to care about the needs and wants of their constituents, and their corporate donors certainly don’t have Minnesotans at heart.
