ST. PAUL, Minn. (KEYC) - United States Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra is in Minnesota today, highlighting Minnesota’s access to abortion.
He begins his trip meeting with health care providers at a Planned Parenhood to discuss abortion alongside democratic Rep. Betty McCollum.
The two will speak with patients who have traveled across state lines from Wisconsin to receive an abortion.
Becerra will later meet with Gov. Tim Walz and Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan for a press conference as DFL legislators bring a bill forward in the state house to codify abortion rights in Minnesota’s constitution.
