DFL Party Statement on Anti-Choice Extremist Tad Jude’s Run for Attorney General


DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement in response to Tad Jude’s announced run for Attorney General: 

“Tad Jude is a far-right extremist who wants to ban and criminalize virtually all abortion, even in cases of sexual assault. Jude also wants to force police officers to investigate women who make the difficult and personal medical decision to have an abortion. Pulling police off the street and using them to investigate women’s private medical decisions is cruel, barbaric, and would make our communities less safe.

“With the U.S. Supreme Court poised to eliminate protections for reproductive health care, Tad Jude’s election as Attorney General would be a threat to women across Minnesota and risk sending our state back to the dark ages.”
