Update: More Candidates Sign Abortion Free New Mexico’s Pro-Life Pledge

      

By Bud Shaver,

Albuquerque, New Mexico- This years National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children, held at the only location in New Mexico where aborted babies are buried featured excellent speakers, was well attended by over 50 people and concluded with the announcement of several local Albuquerque candidates (featured below) who signed Abortion Free New Mexico’s Pro-Life Pledge. Abortion Free New Mexico has worked with Fr. Stephen Imbarrato of Life Ministries U.S., to make this site a place of healing for post abortive women and those who have suffered miscarriages. Several memorial headstones have been placed in honor of these babies at the Sandia Memory Gardens. Contact Abortion Free New Mexico if you or someone you know would like to have their babies name placed on a memorial headstone.

Photos (below) from the event were featured in a front page, Sunday edition, article by the Santa Fe New Mexican, who had previously interviewed Tara about the recent Texas abortion ban and its impact on New Mexico.

Excerpt from the article,

New Mexico does not have some of the abortion restrictions — such as mandated parental approval for minors or a waiting period — that many other states have.

Tara Shaver, spokeswoman for the anti-abortion organization Abortion Free New Mexico, said she thinks less stringent laws help make New Mexico “the Wild West when it comes to abortion.”

The lack of restrictions “lends our state to being the ‘go to’ place for abortion, especially for women in the surrounding states who are beyond the stage where they can get the procedure in their home state,” she said.

Laws protect people, Shaver said.

“Even if we don’t agree with them, they do serve a purpose,” she said. “It’s not in a woman’s best interest to be encouraged to circumvent her own state’s law to go elsewhere to get a procedure done, to kill a child.”

She said her organization does not judge women who choose to have an abortion but works to provide them with support and resources to get them to reconsider that decision.

“It is encouraging to have so many committed pro-life candidates running for office in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County, which is where we have the highest concentration of abortions in the state. Albuquerque, New Mexico is unfortunately known as the late-term abortion capital of the nation and Abortion Free New Mexico is working to change this horrific reputation by encouraging candidates to stand for life. We must all work to build a culture of life where women, our senior citizens and the medically vulnerable are given life affirming healthcare options.”
