The town of Prinsburg, pop. 515, is being thrust into the larger, national debate over abortion as it considers an ordinance that would allow residents to file civil lawsuits against abortion providers.

“I’ve been forthcoming since day one of this race: I’ve vowed to listen to, and represent, every voter in Southern Minnesota. Part of running to represent the people of this district means showing up when I say I’ll show up to make sure every voter gets the chance to hear from me," Ettinger said. "I’m not scared to tell the voters of the district where I stand on the issues. Brad Finstad has shown today that he clearly can’t say the same.”

Ettinger has agreed to participate in eight public forums around the district. Of those, Finstad has agreed to three, including this evening’s event in Worthington, which he won’t be attending.
