Mayor of Minneapolis Declares March 10th ‘Abortion Provider Appreciation Day’

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey (D-Minn.) made a declaration that March 10th will be celebrated in the city as “Abortion Provider Appreciation Day,” according to The Hill.

In his statement, Frey said that “abortion providers like Whole Women’s Health deliver high quality care in the face of harassment and threats to abortion access at the federal and local levels.” He further added that he was “proud to recognize today as Abortion Provider Appreciation Day to celebrate Whole Women’s Health as an essential part of our community.”

This is not the first occurrence of such an “appreciation day,” as Planned Parenthood previously celebrated a similar day in 1996. Whole Women’s Health, the abortion provider acknowledged by Frey, is one of five abortion providers in the city of Minneapolis.
