Act Now: Stop The Abortion Bill

Act Now: Stop The Abortion Bill

By Bud Shaver

Santa Fe, New Mexico- On Saturday, February 8, 2020, Abortion Free New Mexico attended the “We The People Unity Rally,” where New Mexicans from all across the state gathered to stand together and send a unified message to legislators to stand up for conservative values this session. In particular, a troubling red flag gun bill has been introduced and was passed on the senate floor last week.

At the rally, Steve Pearce, Chairman of the Republican Party of New Mexico announced that Governor Lujan Grisham (D) has put the notorious abortion bill (formerly HB51) on the call. Abortion Free New Mexico had previously reported that the abortion bill, which sought to remove New Mexico’s criminal abortion statute, would not be introduced due to lack of votes. Last session, the Archbishop of Santa Fe was a strong voice in opposition to this radical legislation, which garnered bipartisan opposition and ultimately died on the senate floor.

So far, no legislation has been filed but we are asking that the pro-life community reach out to thank the courageous democrats, most of whom are Catholic, that voted against this pro-death legislation last session. Without their votes our legislature would have voted to decriminalize abortion. In a state that allows abortions up to the day of birth because we have no laws on the book to limit them, this would certainly be a step in the wrong direction. Learn more about what will actually happen if this bill passes.

In addition, Abortion Free New Mexico is thankful for Archbishop John C. Wester’s bold voice for life last session and asking him to publicly oppose New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s Call for Abortion legislation this session.

  • Please contact Archbishop John C. Wester to thank him for being a voice for life last session.

Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, Director of Life Ministries U.S. issued the following statement of encouragement,

“I encourage the bishops of New Mexico, in this 25th anniversary year of Evangelium Vita, to reiterate to Governor Grisham their position that the Catholic Church stands against legalized abortion as it is intrinsically evil and that no Catholic can support it.”
