By Bud Shaver,
Santa Fe, NM- PRAISE BE TO GOD: PRO-DEATH AGENDA HAS BEEN DEFEATED!
Thank you for your prayers, and action! Death has been defeated in this New Mexico legislative session!
Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico issued the following statement,
It is truly miraculous that HB51 did not pass the NM Senate floor vote today. All glory to the Lord and thanks to so many who took action this legislative session!
Did you know that New Mexico is positioned to be one of the most pro-life states in the nation when Roe v. Wade is overturned? HB51 would have removed our criminal abortion statute and brought us to square one with no laws restricting abortion. Please continue to pray and be engaged in this battle for the lives of precious pre-born babies targeted for death in the late term abortion capital of the nation.
Please like and share our ministry page on Facebook, Abortion Free New Mexico, and join us as we work to close down the last 5 abortion facilities in our state.
We would like to thank all of the the statewide organizations who mobilized their base to oppose HB 51, everyone who called/emailed their representatives and testified in Santa Fe, and those who financially supported our billboard and statewide postcard public awareness campaign.
Abortion Free New Mexico would especially like to thank the Bishops of New Mexico for their bold and very public opposition to HB 51. Thanks to their leadership 6 Catholic Democrats voted their faith and OPPOSED HB 51.
