Albuquerque, NM- New Mexico law actually criminalizes the practice of late term abortions that are performed outside of accredited hospitals. However, this law is not being enforced, leaving women to suffer at the hands of unregulated abortionists.

  • The Criminal Abortion Statute [NMSA 1978 §30-5-3(C)] was passed in 1969 by the New Mexico legislature [pre ROE vs. WADE era] but was enjoined by a judge from being enforced.

This week KOB 4 reported:

“SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) – Democrats in the New Mexico Legislature are laying plans to end a decades-old ban on abortion that came before the landmark Supreme Court case.

State Rep. Joanne Ferrary of Las Cruces said last week that removes the state’s criminal ban on abortion in case the U.S. Supreme Court overturns a 1973 decision that made the procedure legal nationwide.

She says her cause has taken on new urgency with the addition of Republican-appointed justices under President Donald Trump.

A 1960s-era New Mexico’s law makes it a felony for an abortion provider to terminate a pregnancy, with exceptions for rape, birth defects and serious threats to a woman’s health.
The revived proposal has the public support of Democratic Gov.-elect Michelle Lujan Grisham.”

Members of Abortion Free New Mexico pursued enforcement of this law by meeting with various public officials over the past 8 years including in 2013 with then District Attorney Kari Brandenburg. The corruption and incompetence in New Mexico, however, knows no bounds.

What pro-abortion democrats are failing to mention is that the criminal abortion statute also prohibits non physicians from performing surgical abortions. Unfortunately, New Mexico officials have failed to enforce this provision. In 2016, Tara Shaver, of Abortion Free New Mexico, filed a complaintwith the New Mexico Board of Nursing against Planned Parenthood’s abortionist Vivianne Clark. Clark, a Registered Nurse, was reimbursed by New Mexico medicaid for performing abortions from 17-24 weeks of pregnancy. This violation is a fourth degree felony.

The New Mexico Board of Nursing dismissed the complaint this spring without any action.

So apparently the only portion of the criminal abortion statute that is being enforced,

“requires that an abortion be performed only with the woman’s consent.”

This provision would be removed if the criminal abortion statute is repealed leaving women vulnerable to abortions being performed without their consent.

“In their anticipation of the Supreme Court overturning Roe vs. Wade the radical leftist democrats in New Mexico are not wasting any time to push their extremist agenda that would remove common sense measures that were enacted to protect women’s bodily autonomy.  Ironically, if they accomplish their stated goal and repeal the criminal abortion statute before Roe vs. Wade is overturned non physicians will be able to perform invasive surgical procedures on women without their consent. Is governor elect Michelle Lujan Grisham really willing to put her signature on a bill that would leave women vulnerable to involuntary abortions being performed on them against their will?” stated Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico.

Take Action

Abortion Free New Mexico is encouraging New Mexicans to contact their legislator and respectfully ask them to oppose the repeal of the criminal abortion statute.

Albuquerque, NM- Alex Curtas who worked as “Communications Director” for the RADICAL LEFTIST group Progress Now New Mexico IS NOW THE “Communications Director” for the Office of the New Mexico Secretary of State and is giving statements about an ongoing investigation…

(Wait for it)


“New Mexico Secretary of State spokesman Alex Curtas said Friday the office is scheduled to certify results by Nov. 27 that will show, according to unofficial results, Torres Small defeating Republican Yvette Herrell.”

Oh yeah, New Mexicans should have real confidence that no shenanigans are going on…

It’s not the Russians that are influencing, giving public statements regarding an ongoing election fraud investigation and who’ve already been blocked by the New Mexico Supreme Court for attempting to rig our election. In New Mexico, apparently it is the RADICAL LEFTIST DEMOCRATS in the Office of the New Mexico Secretary of State. Every New Mexican voter, regardless of political ideology, should be concerned whenever an EXTREME political bias has been exposed as running rampant throughout the very office that is supposed to safeguard free and fair elections in New Mexico,” stated Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico.



More shady politics in New Mexico.

The Dona Ana Republican Party issued the following statement regarding Yvette Herrell’s lawsuit alleging potential voter fraud in New Mexico,

“The Lawsuit has been filed and now is the time to contact our office with any irregularities you witnessed while voting or while trying to vote.

​We need to go through the procedure of recording more Voter Incident Reports. (575) 523-8683”

Albuquerque, NM- In New Mexico an unfortunate reality is that the majority of voters are registered democrats, and instead of looking at the candidates positions, most of these constituents voted their party line. Democrat candidates were also funded heavily by the New Mexico abortion cartel by local abortionists, University of New Mexico staff and Planned Parenthood political action committees in New Mexico and from out of state. This combination of circumstances in addition to the current republican governor’s lack of approval made it a difficult obstacle for Republicans to overcome throughout this 2018 midterm election cycle.

The chairman of the New Mexico republican party told the Albuquerque Journal,

“Our candidates, as well as an army of faithful volunteers throughout the state, fought hard to advance Republican principles and beat the odds.” 

However, as the saying goes, “money buys elections” and in New Mexico, it was the abortion industry that was doing the spending!

Planned Parenthood, alone, spent over $300,000 dollars to democrat candidates in the 2018 state election through their PAC Planned Parenthood Votes New Mexico/ Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

$105,735 of which was given exclusively to Michelle Lujan Grisham, the democrat candidate for Governor, for mailers, radio spots, and various other get out the vote efforts for her campaign. Altogether Planned Parenthood, including Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains CEO Vicki Cowart, Planned Parenthood lobbyist Julianna Koob and their political action funds located in Washington D.C. and New York contributed over $151,485 to buy New Mexico’s next governor Michelle Lujan Grisham.

In addition to Planned Parenthood…

  • UNM Health Sciences Chancellor Paul Roth, UNM abortionists Eve Espey, Tony Ogburn and Larry Leeman.
  • Late term abortionist Curtis Boyd and his wife Glenna Boyd as well as Southwestern Women’s Options other abortionists Shannon Carr and Carmen Landau.
  • Joan Lamunyon Sanford, the executive director of the New Mexico Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice.

ABORTION EXTREMISTS funded Michelle Lujan Grisham’s campaign:  

UNM abortionists/UNM Health Sciences Chancellor contributions to Michelle Lujan Grisham for governor totaled: $9,825

Southwestern Women’s Options Abortionists spent $5,925 for Michelle Lujan Grisham to become governor:

George Soros contributed $11,000 towards Michelle Lujan Grisham’s campaign:

All of these people and organizations have one thing in common, they are RADICAL ABORTION EXTREMISTS, and now they have not only gained control of both legislative chambers in New Mexico but also the governor’s office. The democrats in New Mexico have free reign to push whatever agenda they wish.

ALREADY we are seeing the FIRST CASUALTY of the democrat controlled majority in New Mexico: Yvette Herrell who ran for a U.S. House seat, in a conservative leaning county, is apparently having her election results STOLEN from her in congressional district 2.

According to the Gateway Pundit:

​”More shady politics in New Mexico.”

So much for free and fair elections in New Mexico…

“It is clear that New Mexico’s new governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, is bought and paid for by the New Mexico abortion cartel to ensure that their business of killing babies up to the day of birth continues unabated. While they have won this battle, we are determined to win the war. All the money in the world doesn’t buy the moral high ground and we still maintain that territory in New Mexico. While New Mexico democrats are willing to steal, kill, and destroy New Mexico’s future for their lust of power, we are fighting for the lives of pre-born children and a better future for all New Mexicans,” stated Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico.

While the New Mexico abortion cartel believes that their money and control can dominate New Mexico politically, the lives of pre-born children remain in jeopardy and it’s our mission to continue moving forward to ensure that every life in New Mexico is valued and protected.
