ST. PAUL, M.N. (KELO) — Minnesota is moving to strengthen its status as a refuge for patients from restrictive states who travel to the state to seek abortions.

The state House voted 68-62 to prohibit enforcement in Minnesota of laws, subpoenas, judgments or extradition requests from other states against people who get, perform or assist with abortions in Minnesota.

This is potentially related to a Texas law that deputizes individuals to enforce their state’s restrictions by allowing them to sue anyone who helps a patient obtain an abortion elsewhere.
