Albuquerque, New Mexico- Abortion Free New Mexico would like to congratulate newly elected Albuquerque City Councilor Dan Lewis (District 5). Lewis signed our pro-life pledge and won in his district race obtaining 52% of the votes! Renee Grout (District 9) who also signed our pro-life pledge received the most votes in her district but because she didn’t receive over 51% of the votes, she will have a run off election on December 7th.
“Albuquerque is the late term abortion capital of the nation and we are pleased to see that candidates who are taking a bold stand for life are winning their races. There will be so much more that we can do at the city level with a conservative majority on the city council,” stated Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico
Abortion Free New Mexico’s Pro-Life Pledge states:
“I pledge to defend life from conception to natural death. In making and keeping this pledge, I am committed to ending all abortion and all assisted suicide in the state of New Mexico.”
With the election of City Councilor Dan Lewis and a win in Renee Grout’s run off election, there is the potential for a major power shift leaning towards a pro-life majority on the Albuquerque city council!
Renee Grout, issued the following statement,
“I’m so grateful to my family, our volunteers and all the voters who supported me. We still have a lot of work to do,” said Grout. “We will continue to campaign hard, and I look forward to serving our great city.”
