Thursday: Votes on Abortion; Last Chance to Speak Up to Your Legislators!
The 2021 New Mexico legislative session may be virtual, but the threat to unborn babies in our state is very real! Our allies at the Roundhouse are now telling us that votes on the radical abortion bills are likely to happen in the full House and Senate on Thursday.
Your voice is needed now more than ever! We have updated our Action Center message to legislators with fresh wording, so even if you have contacted them before, please take 30 seconds to send a new message to your legislators.
After you’ve sent the message, watch for a confirmation that includes the name and phone number of your senator and your representative. Please take a few moments to call and leave a message for them. Let them know you are a voter in their district, and politely ask them to oppose the radical abortion bill.
As we’ve been sharing in updates throughout this process, House Bill 7 and Senate Bill 10 are identical bills that wipe away critical protections. Doctors could lose their right of conscience to decline to do abortions; abortions could be committed without the woman’s consent; and any semblance of limitations on abortion – up to birth and including infanticide – would be wiped from our state’s law books.
Finally, please pray for our legislators on Thursday. And please share this email or the Action Center link with other New Mexicans who care about life.
Thank you for defending the least of these.
