As the nation waits to see if the Supreme Court will indeed overturn Roe v. Wade in the impending Dobbs decision, it is important to recognize the incredible moment we are in.
The pro-life movement has been waiting nearly 50 years to see Roe overturned. Since Roe, over 62 million American lives have been lost to abortion, their mothers have been sold a bill of goods about abortion, and our Constitution has been mocked by claiming it houses a “right to abortion.”
The overturn of Roe and returning the issue of abortion regulation back to the people’s elected leaders at the state and federal level would be a critical step forward in forging a culture of life in America.
Tonight’s event is especially timely, since the Supreme Court’s next decision day is tomorrow, and all eyes will be on the Court to see whether they release the anticipated Dobbs decision.

Recently, the Albuquerque City Council voted on an amendment to the budget that allocates $250,000 to Planned Parenthood. The amendment was sponsored by Tammy Fiebelkorn, city councilor for District 7, who states, “I’m proud to have sponsored this amendment to provide vital support for Planned Parenthood.”
The amendment was passed in a 6-3 vote, with two conservative council members voting for the amendment rather than supporting the conservative values they claim to protect. If left to stand, this appropriation of funds will go into effect on July 1.
There’s still hope.
City Councilor Renee Grout is sponsoring a resolution to reappropriate the funds that are designated for Planned Parenthood. Grout, and other conservative council members, are working to reallocate the $250,000 to support pregnancy education and care projects in the city.
It is possible!
NM FAM is proud to be working with Councilor Grout to see this resolution come to fruition. If we hope to change the culture of our state to one that cherishes life and sees families thrive, we cannot have taxpayers’ dollars specifically earmarked to fund operations like Planned Parenthood.
Unfortunately, many women facing unplanned pregnancy feel that abortion is their only option. They need to know there are other, better, more life-affirming options available to them.
Help us support Councilor Grout and this resolution to STOP the funds to Planned Parenthood. Email the Albuquerque city councilors and tell them to support the reappropriation of funds from Planned Parenthood to pregnancy education and care projects.
Help us change the culture of New Mexico!
Last week, Governor Murphy relaunched his plan to enrich New Jersey’s Big Abortion industry. His renewed call to mandate insurance companies cover the entire abortion cost without any copayments, and to codify into state law that non-physicians can perform unsafe abortions on women, has rightly infuriated people across the state.
“Gov. Murphy’s radical proposal calls for free abortions with no limits right up to birth, and he wants struggling New Jersey families to pay for abortions for everyone through even higher taxes and health care premiums.”
– Senator Steve Oroho (R), Senate Minority Leader
“The Catholic Bishops of New Jersey join to express our disappointment and outrage over Governor Murphy’s announcement regarding proposed legislation to expand access to abortion in New Jersey, an act that by its very nature terminates human life. If enacted, this legislation would mandate health insurance coverage for abortions, codify regulations that allow non-physicians to perform abortions; and create a public fund that dedicates taxpayer money to pay for abortions.”
– Joint statement from the New Jersey Catholic bishops on Governor Murphy’s proposal that all health insurers in New Jersey provide coverage for abortion services
“Governor Murphy and the pro-abortion legislators want everyone onboard their sinking ship of free abortion on demand. But more and more people are seeing abortion for what it is: a grave injustice and assault on women and their babies in the womb. In my church, immigrants, African Americans, and people across generations are united for life.”
– Brennan Coughlin, Fellowship CrossPoint, Chesterfield
“This bill is demoralizing and tears at the very fabric of our morality. As legislation goes, so goes our society, and the governor is plunging us into an even deeper state of immorality with this bill. This bill is detestable and no one with a Biblical worldview should support anything that puts the life of any child at risk, whether in the womb or outside of the womb… it makes no difference.”
– Pastor Alex McCormick, Impact Church, Burlington, NJ
Friends, these little babies are precious. Planned Parenthood, NJ Family Planning League, New Jersey Abortion Access Fund, and many others might have no concern for the lives of the least of these, but we do!
The work of the pro-life movement in NJ will be hard and strenuous in the months and years ahead. I am encouraged by the numerous pro-life voices and organizations that are working together to save lives and to assist women to find the help they need. Be on the lookout for future emails telling you how to take action to stop this heinous injustice against these little ones.
Fighting for your families here in the Garden State!
Since the recent U.S. Supreme Court opinion leak indicated Roe v. Wade could be overturned, the left is desperately working to pass abortion-on-demand legislation before the Court rules.
TODAY, Chuck Schumer is bringing S. 4132, an abortion-on-demand bill, to a vote on the Senate floor. If passed S. 4132 would allow abortion-on-demand in every state- up until birth- and override state pro-life laws.
If enacted, S. 4132 would:
- Allow an abortion at any point in pregnancy—including late-term abortions.
- Override current life-saving state laws like heartbeat protections, dismemberment abortion bans, and sex-, race-, and disability-selective abortion bans.
- Override current state laws that require in-person counseling to help prevent coerced abortions.
- Override current state laws that require abortionists to give women information about their babies and abortion complications.
- Override life-saving restrictions on abortion-inducing drugs.
- Deny the truth that mothers are women.
Tell your Senator to reject abortion-on-demand and to stand for our first American value—the right to life.
You may have heard about the D.C. Five, referring to the five babies whose bodies were discovered in Washington, D.C.—victims of abortion. Among them were infants who may have been born alive and one who may have been the victim of an illegal and brutal partial-birth abortion.
And yet, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has stayed silent.
Thankfully, pro-life lawmakers in Washington, D.C. are using their platform to help seek justice for these precious babies. Senator James Lankford (R-OK) and Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH), along with several of their colleagues, sent a letter to the D.C. Mayor and the D.C. police chief calling for a proper investigation into these babies’ deaths.
Senator Michael Lee (R-UT) and Representative Chris Smith (R-NJ) sent a letter to the Department of Justice (DOJ) demanding that the DOJ and FBI investigate whether any of the babies’ deaths were in violation of federal law, especially the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act.
Take action today by helping us flood Mayor Bowsers’ office with emails asking for a proper and thorough investigation into this travesty.
Send your letter to the Mayor’s office today with one click on our Action Center.
Afterward, please share this message on your social media using #JusticeForThe5—we need as many voices speaking up for these babies as possible in our nation’s capital!
Thank you for being their voice,
Senior VP, Strategy
Tomorrow, the Colorado legislature will hold its first hearing on a bill that could make Colorado the most pro-abortion state in the country. Your voice is needed – urge your state representative to oppose it!
HB22-1279 will strip away all restrictions or regulations on abortion in Colorado. And it would prohibit any local restrictions on abortion from being enacted at any time in the future!
Under this radical bill:
- Parental notification requirements would be outlawed
- Common-sense health regulations on abortion – such as clinical safety requirements – would be outlawed
- The state will outlaw any attempts to limit abortions, even those that target babies on the basis of their sex or disability
This bill will be heard by the House Health & Insurance Committee on Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. in the Old State Library (Room 271, State Capitol). You are encouraged to attend and are invited to give brief testimony.
But at the least, please do these three things:
- Pray that the legislators will defeat this bill.
- Speak up to your representative. It only takes a minute on our Action Center.
- Pass along this alert to others so they can take a stand as well!
Thank you for standing up for those who can’t protect themselves!
Vice President, State Alliances
Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer are desperate to protect and promote unlimited abortion across the country. They know the U.S. Supreme Court could soon overturn Roe v. Wade.
Their latest effort involves H.R. 3755, which has already passed the House. We expect the Senate will vote to advance it on MONDAY. This bill would allow abortion-on-demand in every state if enacted into law. This is the first time the Senate has ever voted on such an expansive abortion bill.
Tell your Senator to vote NO on H.R. 3755!
If enacted, H.R. 3755 would:
- Allow an abortion at any point an abortionist deems appropriate—including late-term abortions.
- Ban current life-saving state laws like the Heartbeat Act, dismemberment abortion bans, and sex-selection abortion bans.
- Deny parents the ability to know or be involved if their daughter has an abortion.
- Ban current state laws that require in-person counseling to help prevent coerced abortions.
- Ban current state laws that require abortionists to give women information about their babies and abortion complications.
- Redefine mothers as “people who are pregnant,” a term that denies the truth that mothers are women.
Tell your Senator to reject abortion-on-demand and to stand for our first American value—the right to life. Click here to send a message to your Senator to VOTE NO on H.R. 3755 through our Action Center—it takes less than 1 minute!
|“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” –Psalm 139:13-14|
Welcome to the conclusion of our four-part series highlighting our vision – a state where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive, and life is cherished.
At Family Policy Alliance of New Mexico, we believe that life is a precious gift from God and that it should be protected from fertilization to natural end of life. Unfortunately, New Mexico is failing every step of the way.
Regrettably, our history with abortion is disenchanting for a place we call the Land of Enchantment. Not only are we a state that boasts of having some of the least restrictions on abortion in the nation, but we have also become an infamous lure for those wishing to terminate pregnancies. In fact, the City of Albuquerque is often heralded as the “Late-Term Abortion Capital of the Country” for attracting women who cannot legally have late-term abortions in other states.
I’ll never forget the sickening feeling I experienced when the victory of the Texas Heartbeat Act stirred New Mexico leaders to welcome Texas women “with open arms, open hearts, and open health care centers,” boasting about abortion-ready health care and even raising funds to financially support Texas women desiring abortion.
New Mexico leaders celebrated the fact that we are one of only a few remaining states that allow abortion to be performed at any stage during the pregnancy. Yes, any stage, including up to the day of birth. Our current leaders would have you believe that the protection of life is archaic, and in so doing they have instituted a culture of death and applauded themselves for it.
Our states current mentality echoes that of abortionist Curtis Boyd. As the leader of the nation’s largest abortion facility conducting elective abortions through the third trimester, Boyd openly admitted, “Am I killing? Yes, I am. I know that.”
While the admission is shocking, the reality that abortion kills is not a surprise. Boyd simply shed light on what we already know to be true in light of Scripture and science. Even liberal comedian Bill Maher would agree. In Maher’s words, “You don’t have to be religious to be against abortion. I mean, you see the little picture of the kid in there. At some point…it is kind of wrong to kill it.”
It’s agreed, abortion kills. And sadly, New Mexico approves.
Friends, this culture of death does not only pertain to our pre-born but also to those with life-threatening disabilities. It is time to restore a culture of life in our state! Every person has been created in the image of God as a unique and priceless being with inherent dignity and rights – chief among them, the right to live! This includes those with terminal diagnoses and those with disabilities; the preborn and those facing the end of life – and those at every age, status or capability in between.
Our vision is a New Mexico where life is cherished, and we want you to join us in this effort! Daniel 11:32 says, “…the people who know their God shall stand firm and take action.” Simply put, it’s not enough to stand for what we believe – we must also act. At Family Policy Alliance of New Mexico, we call this “unleashing citizenship” and we are counting on your help to unleash a culture of life across our state. I know we can count on your prayers. Can we count on your support as well?
Together, let’s turn New Mexico around for the glory of our God!
It’s December 22. With Christmas just days away, we’re setting aside time to gather with family, rest, and reflect on the mystery of the incarnation, and we hope you can, too.
Twenty days ago, we launched our campaign to prepare for a world After Roe. It’s a world where babies are saved, and we’re celebrating that it could soon be reality.
As I considered this, something struck me: it is so special that this month, as we celebrate the baby who came to save us, Christians around the country have rallied to save babies.
Christ came down not as an adult or even a young child. He came as a baby. Weak, vulnerable, in need of constant care.
He came to be fully human, with all that means. All the baby teeth and growing pains, scrapes and sniffles – and yes, living even as a baby in the womb.
Of course, Christmas is about so much more than Christ coming as a baby. It is about the eternal God, the One worthy of all praise and honor, humbling Himself for our sake. Christmas is about Christ’s obedience to the Father and His love for us, as He took on flesh and dwelt among us, even becoming “sin on our behalf,” that through Him we might be saved.
But all of that began with Christ as an infant – so Christmas certainly is about nothing less than Christ coming as a baby.
And to me, that is an encouragement.
It’s because of Him that we can appreciate the value of the life He’s given us. In fact, it’s in Him that we live and move and have our being. And at Family Policy Alliance, it’s because of Him that we are called to do the work we do every day.
So this month, as we celebrate the birth of the baby who came to save us, we’re standing together to save babies. What work could be more fitting?
From all of us at Family Policy Alliance, Merry Christmas. May these coming days be filled with joy, peace, and renewal, as we celebrate the birth of our King.

This morning, House Democrats passed H.R. 5376, the so-called “Build Back Better Act.” It’s better known as the “Tear Down, not Build Back Act,” or the “Socialist Tax and Spending Spree.” The 2,466-page bill contains Equality Act language, pushes the Left’s radical agenda in public schools, and could force you to pay for abortion. Read our press release statement here.
GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy fought against the bill for over 8 hours last night in a record-breaking floor speech- causing the vote on the legislation to be delayed. Unfortunately, only one Democrat listened to reason and the bill passed this morning 220-213.
Here are some of the worst anti-family provisions to the bill:
Equality Act Agenda
- Promotes Equality Act language, attempting to force the widely rejected top priority of the LGBT agenda into yet another bill
- Demeans mothers by calling them “pregnant, lactating, or postpartum individuals.”
- Creates a grant program of “$15,000,000 specifically for individuals based on their “sexual orientation or gender identity.”
Radical Left Policies in Public Schools
- Promotes so-called “equity” throughout the legislation.
- Uses $1,270,000,000 of taxpayer dollars for public schools to create a “master plan to address…education equity.” The grant will likely be used to promote critical race theory and a radical liberal agenda in public schools.
Taxpayer Funded Abortions
- Mandates abortion coverage in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for low-income families.
- Allows taxpayer dollars to fund elective abortion and subsidize plans that cover election abortion.
- Creates funding streams that could be used for abortion facilities or abortion training.
The “Tear Down, not Build Back Act” is now headed to the Senate. We will keep you updated on how you can tell your Senator to STOP this dangerous legislation!
In the meantime, the Senate started debating the National Defense Authorization Act. The legislation still contains Equality Act language and would force women to register for the draft. Tell your Senator to tell them to STOP the left’s radical gender agenda and DON’T draft our daughters here.
While news like this can be discouraging, know that our team at Family Policy Alliance is committed to standing against these radical, anti-family agendas. We just recently saw how the tide is turning on these issues in Virginia, and in other elections across the nation. We can’t stop fighting now- will you join us?
For faith, family, and freedom,
