In the midst of these challenging times, I am proud to bring you some good news in the form of another pro-life victory in our state.
Recently, the Cimarron Village Council passed a pro-life resolution affirming the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death. The resolution was introduced by Council Member Matthew Gonzales and it was unanimously passed by the four Democrats and lone Republican on the Council.
The Council resolution states in part:
“[W]e, the members of the Cimarron Village Council, declare that innocent human life, including fetal life, must always be protected and that Society must protect those who cannot protect themselves.”
The Village of Cimarron now joins at least five other New Mexico local governments that have passed pro-life resolutions around the state. This list includes the Lea County Commission, the Eddy County Commission, the Hidalgo County Commission, the Roswell City Council, and the Kirtland Town Council.
While New Mexico is infamously regarded as the “late-term abortion capital of the country,” these local governments are trying to reverse the culture of death in our state by promoting a culture of life. We applaud them, and we ask the question:
Which local government will be next?
As previously reported, County Commissioner James Martinez has proposed a pro-life resolution in Rio Arriba County, but it has not yet been voted on. If your county, city, town, or village is not on this list, please consider contacting your local County Commissioner or Council Member this week and ask them to introduce a similar resolution.
Together, let’s send a message to the abortion industry—that New Mexico is a pro-life state!
Standing with you for life,
President & Executive Director
