As the country holds its breath for the final decision regarding Roe v. Wade, progressive plans are stirring that will paint New Mexico as a haven for those who wish to take the life of their unborn child. With heartbreaking candor, Shannon Brewer, the director of Jackson Women’s Health Organization, announced that the Mississippi clinic has plans to open a clinic in New Mexico if Roe is overturned.
Brewer told the Washington Post, “We have been strategizing on several things since the Supreme Court hearing last year, and we decided to look at places where abortion is protected. New Mexico is where we decided to open a new facility.” Their plans are to have the New Mexico clinic open before the final ruling comes down from SCOTUS.
The historical case of Roe v. Wade, which recognized abortion after viability as a constitutional right, looks as though it is nearing an end as current justices recognize and agree that the 1973 Supreme Court decision was egregiously wrong to begin with. If SCOTUS truly does overturn Roe, life has a chance to win, state by state.
But, as I’ve shared before, the New Mexico battle for life will be in the hands of progressive, pro-choice legislators and leaders – those who boldly call the loss of abortion rights “forced pregnancy” and equate those pregnancies to war crimes. These are the leaders running our state. These are the leaders that overwhelm the legislature and have repealed all pro-life protections we’ve fought for over the years.
Something has to change.
New Mexico’s culture must be transformed to one that cherishes life, and we have an opportunity to begin that change in November. First, you must know who your current legislators are, and then you must know how they have voted to protect life. We have many currently elected legislators that are great allies for life, and we need to support them and keep them in office while replacing their anti-life counterparts with those who will fight for a life-cherishing culture in New Mexico.
Knowing who your legislators are is key to creating a legislature in New Mexico that will cherish life. The best way to know if your legislator cherishes life is to see for yourself how they voted on SB10 (Senate Bill 10). Seeing how your legislators voted on SB10, which repealed New Mexico’s minimal efforts at protecting life, stripping us of all protections for the unborn, will show you exactly how they feel about protecting life. If they voted “yes,” they DO NOT cherish life. If they voted “yes,” they are responsible for the continued cycle of death in the Land of Enchantment.

Current State Senator David Gallegos, a champion for life, encourages voters to vote for life:
“This news about the Mississippi Abortion Clinic that is planning to come to New Mexico should outrage voters. Please hold your Governor and legislators accountable! New Mexico should not be the murder capital of the world. Vote for life and change our state so we can protect our unborn.”
Will you help us hold New Mexico government accountable?
