This week, I am thrilled to announce a new initiative towards our goal of seeing life cherished in New Mexico. It is an initiative that brings to mind Ezekiel’s vision in the valley of dry bones. Ezekiel’s vision was a promise that God would restore his people. You see, we are dry; void of life because of sin. But God brings life in one powerful breath and brings dry bones to life! New Mexico is currently a pile of dry bones when it comes to our current legislation regarding life. We need a revival. We need dry bones to come alive and I believe God is preparing a way for that very revival. It is possible, but we need you!
As you know, Roe set the precedent for our country in its recognition of ‘abortion before viability’ as a constitutional right. Today, the Supreme Court will hear a case that could lead to the overturning of this precedent. If Roe is overturned, Roe’s viability standard no longer holds up. While this will be a great victory for our country in the stand for life, it unfortunately does not change anything for New Mexico.
In 2021, New Mexico repealed a pre-Roe trigger law that would have banned abortion in the state if Roe is overturned. This trigger law required that abortion could only take place if it was a justified medical termination and could only be performed by a licensed physician, using acceptable medical procedures in an accredited hospital. The repeal of this law stripped our state of all protections for the unborn. In fact, we have been called, by some, the late-term abortion capital of the nation. The 2021 repeal also stripped conscience protections from healthcare workers. We have no delay requirements, no parental consent for minors, no counseling requirements for a woman desiring abortion, and no standards of care. This means that we have a lot of work to do in order to gain ground in the fight for life.
- Work diligently in the coming 2022 election to see officials elected who will protect life
- Equip churches and church leaders with information about where our laws actually stand as a state
- Mobilize life-cherishing citizens to be an active voice for the unborn
- Be actively involved in promoting good policy that supports and values life
There is a long road ahead of us, but we are determined to stay the course. Now we have to fight like our lives depend on it because there is an unborn child’s life that does.
We need your help!
This organization is able to make a difference because of the generosity of people like you. We run solely on the donations of our ministry partners and this month I am asking for your help. We have set a goal of raising $25,000 to help our organization continue to be the active voice for the issues that matter most.
