A new KSTP poll found that 51% of Minnesotans oppose the Protect Reproductive Options Act, which was passed last session by the DFL trifecta.

The act allows abortion at any stage of pregnancy for any reason with no limitations.

The poll also found that 43%, a plurality, of Minnesotans support the idea of putting the “right to abortion” in the Minnesota Constitution.

The legislature is currently considering a bill, the Equal Rights Amendment, that would do just that. The constitutional amendment, which would be put before the voters in the 2026 election, would also prohibit discrimination “in intent or effect” on the basis of race, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, and more.

Over 60% of respondents in the poll said the abortion question should be “treated separately” from the Equal Rights Amendment.
