Take Action Now: Tell Senators to Vote No on the Radical Abortion Bill!
The abortion activists are at it again at the Roundhouse! But together, we’ve defeated them before – and your help is needed again!
Here’s what they’re up to this time. Their new abortion-up-to-birth bill (SB 10) would remove state conscience protections for doctors and health care providers. That means a doctor or medical institution would not be protected under state law if they respectfully decline to perform abortions. Doctors could be fired and hospitals closed for following their conscience.
SB 10 would also remove protections for women. Currently, New Mexico law requires that an abortion is only performed upon a consenting woman. If New Mexico abortion law is repealed, women would no longer be legally protected, and abortionists wouldn’t have to ensure a patient was receiving a voluntary procedure. If New Mexico lawmakers really cared about women’s health, they would ensure women receiving abortions were entitled to the same standards of care as any other health procedure. Consent is non-negotiable.
SB 10 would also further endanger women by removing all legal definitions and boundaries as to what constitutes an “illegal abortion.” If New Mexico abortion statutes are repealed, it would no longer be clear whether an individual performing an abortion without a license is a criminal act.
Lawmakers must first pass laws protecting women and doctors before repealing an entire section of the code. Women and doctors deserve better!
Here’s what you can do: Send a message to your state senator. It’s simple and quick, and our Action Center will find your state senator based on your address.
And, of course, please pray, as the abortion activists are aggressively pushing this bill. Pro-life senators are specifically asking for 15 minutes of prayer starting 2 p.m. on Monday.
Thank you for taking action and spreading the word!
