ABORTION IS STILL LEGAL IN MINNESOTA
On June 24th, 2022 the U.S. Supreme Court released their decision overturning Roe v. Wade. We are saddened and angry that a federally protected right for almost 50 years has been taken away. Individuals today will have less rights related to abortion than their parents and grandparents had. This decision is wrong and will harm millions of people. Abortion is a private decision between an individual and their healthcare provider. The government should not regulate healthcare decisions. Abortion is a human right.
According to the Pew Research Center, 61% of U.S. adults say that abortion should be legal all or most of the time. We are the pro-choice, pro-abortion majority.
This decision will fall hardest on people who already face discriminatory obstacles to health particularly Black, Indigenous, and other people of color, people with disabilities, people in rural areas, young people, undocumented people, those having difficulty making ends meet, and those who will need to travel to different states to access abortion care.
Abortion is still legal in Minnesota. WE Health Clinic is open and is committed to providing abortion care. If you have an appointment with us for an abortion or need to make one, know that we are still providing this essential service now and into the future.

Together for health and choice
At WE Health Clinic, we believe everyone should be in control of their own sexual and reproductive health. Our mission is to provide, advance, and advocate for evidence-based reproductive and sexual health care for all. WE Health Clinic strives to help our patients make informed and confident health decisions.
We are the only abortion provider in Northern Minnesota, Northern Wisconsin, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Since 1981 we have been providing sexual, reproductive, and abortion services as Women’s Health Center, and starting in 2019, as WE Health Clinic.
In 2018/2019 we expanded our services to include gender-affirming hormone care and PrEP therapy to better serve our community. We also changed our name to WE Health Clinic in order to better represent our patients and the services we provide.
WE Health Clinic is accredited by the National Abortion Federation (NAF), the agency that sets standards for abortion clinics in the United States, Mexico, and Canada. WE Health Clinic is also a member of the Abortion Care Network (ACN), a network of independent abortion providers in the United States
