Governor Lujan Grisham Sends a Message to Hollywood

May 16

Dear Friends:

In late-March, 80 actors and actresses sent a letter to Georgia Governor Brian Kemp threatening to boycott the State of Georgia if he signed the “Living Infants Fairness and Equality Act”—a bill which protects unborn babies from abortions once a heartbeat is detected.

Last week, Governor Kemp sent a clear message to those radical, pro-abortion Hollywood elites when he signed the bill and boldly stated: “We will not back down. We will always continue to fight for life.”

This week, our Governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, also had a message for the pro-abortion Hollywood crowd. Her message: “Bring your cameras” to New Mexico.

“The situation in Georgia is appalling to me and, I know, so many New Mexicans. I hope film companies make the ethical choice and invest in states that are clear about baseline human rights, not least a woman’s autonomy over her own body. To those production companies and filmmakers across the U.S. and elsewhere I would offer a simple reminder: New Mexico is wide open for business. Bring your cameras.” -Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham 

It is a sad day in New Mexico when our Governor attempts to leverage the lives of unborn children for movies—when she publicly affirms that appeasing Hollywood is more important than protecting innocent life—when she describes pro-life legislation as “appalling”—and when she portrays abortion as both “ethical” and a “baseline human right.”

Has this really become our state’s best selling point? That we can kill unborn children up to the moment of birth in New Mexico?

Growing up, I always believed that one of our state’s best characteristics was our commitment to family and life. Never did I imagine a day when we would be infamously known for our culture of death.

We need change. We need it now. And we can make it happen.

Through faithful prayer and persistent action, let’s be the agents of change needed to reverse the culture of death in our state. Let’s be the answer to our own prayers. Together, let’s foster a New Mexico where life is cherished.

Standing for Life,

Vince Torres
President and Executive Director
