Since 1973, when Roe v. Wade was decided, there have been over 60 million abortions in America alone. Albuquerque is home to one of the few late-term abortion clinics in the country, performing abortions up to the date of delivery, causing multiple fatalities to women, most recently in August of this year.
Although the practice of aborting children up to the date of delivery is killing pregnant women in New Mexico, it is supported by every Democratic candidate running for the U.S. House, U.S. Senate, and Governor, not to mention many of the Democratic state House and Senate candidates running this cycle. In an extensive report from New Mexico Alliance for Life, the voting records and positions of the candidates are documented, showing their support for the extreme measure.
Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s recent appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court means there is a very good chance New Mexico’s abortion laws could go back to reasonable restrictions if Roe v. Wade is overturned, due to an existing 1969 law: N.M. Stat. Ann. §§ 30-5-1. Democrats in the legislature are already waiting to pounce on its reversal, and there is a good chance it could happen unless pro-life Steve Pearce is elected Governor to veto the measure, or Republican majorities are won in the state House and Senate to block it in committee.
With razor-thin pro-life majorities in Congress and large pro-abortion majorities in the state legislature, it is vital to consider the most vulnerable and vote for candidates who will fight for the lives of all children, born or still in the womb. It’s time to finally end abortion in New Mexico, starting by voting Republican tomorrow.
