New Mexico Receives The Most Federal Tax Funds, Uses It to Fund Abortions

New Mexico Receives The Most Federal Tax Funds, Uses It to Fund Abortions

By Bud Shaver

​Albuquerque, New Mexico–  Did you know that New Mexico is ranked #1 as the country’s MOST dependent state on federal funding? What does New Mexico use a majority of this federal funding for?

  • New Mexico Medicaid!

According to a report from Yahoo Finance,

“Because the federal income tax is progressive,” Veuger said, “I think you can also generally say that poor states receive more federal funding through Medicaid, which is a huge part of states’ budgets.”

New Mexico is Ranked as One of the Poorest States in the Nation. It Ranked #2 in 2020!

New Mexico is one of 16 states that FULLY funds abortions through Medicaid! So wrap your mind around this, the Hyde Amendment prevents FEDERAL TAX FUNDS from paying for abortions. However, New Mexico, as one of the country’s poorest states, qualifies as the MOST dependent state in the nation for Federal funds, and what does New Mexico use that tax money for? They use New Mexico (state) Medicaid to FULLY fund ABORTIONS! 

Since it is now New Mexico “state” money, it is no longer considered Federal TAX dollars funding abortions, it’s New Mexico Medicaid funding abortions!

Here are 4 reports about Tax Funded abortions through New Mexico Medicaid by Tara Shaver:

  1. New Mexico Forces Tax Payers to Fund 1,786 Abortions in 2011 
  2. New Albuquerque Investigation Reveals Tax-Funded Medicaid Pays for Hundreds of Late-term Abortions
  3. Tax Funded Abortions on the Rise in New Mexico While Overall Abortions on the Decline
  4. Hispanics Targeted for Death by Abortion According to 2013 New Mexico Vital Statistics

So what can you do about your tax dollars fully funding abortions in New Mexico? 

Well, you can join us in protest this Friday (and every Friday) at The University of New Mexico’s free standing abortion facility! In addition to New Mexico Medicaid funding abortions, New Mexico’s public University and Hospital is performing abortions up to 24 weeks gestation (and beyond at the hospital), as well as actively training up the next generation of abortionists!

Join us and Michelle Garcia Holmes, who is running for United States Congress (CD1) for prayer and protest this Friday, May 15th from 10-11AM.

Michelle Garcia Holmes issued the following statement,

“Join Faith to Action Friday at 2301 Yale SE, Gibson & Yale, prayers outside the UNM abortion clinic, they are terminating babies up to 24 weeks. Let’s stop this egregious act in New Mexico and let’s start standing up for women and babies today!”

“It’s important for us to remember that even in the midst of a crisis we must maintain our unalienable rights as American citizens. We forfeit these rights if we don’t use them. It only takes an hour to make a lasting difference and have an impact for LIFE. Now more than ever, we need to pray collectively, publicly, and strategically. Our presence has the ability to reform The University of New Mexico – UNM so that they get out of the abortion business!” Bud Shaver, Abortion Free New Mexico

Abortion is their dirty little secret that must be exposed.

(Michelle Garcia Holmes and Tara Shaver at the Republican Pre-Primary Convention)

Tara Shaver recently joined a Facebook live interview with Michelle Garcia Holmes who we fully support and who was recently endorsed by New Mexico’s leading newspaper, Albuquerque Journal.

The Albuquerque Journal, definitely got this endorsement right!

The Albuquerque Journal has been fair and balanced in reporting on our work over the years. Here are some of their reports that covered our efforts:

Bud​ and Tara Shaver have redefined the American Mission Field as full-time pro life missionaries to New Mexico since 2010 and are considered by the radical left as, “some of the country’s most strident activists opposed to abortion!”

With the help of Operation Rescue​ and Fr. Stephen Imbarrato we exposed New Mexico to the world as the “Late-Term Abortion Capital” a designation we coined based on our ground breaking research.
