Dear Friends,

I’m writing to you this week with great excitement for the victory of our neighbors in Texas. Last week, the Texas Supreme Court shut down the final challenge to the Heartbeat Act – the law that prohibits abortions in Texas after the detection of the child’s heartbeat, which is currently 6 weeks gestation, although it can be detected as early as 5 weeks gestation.

The Texas Attorney General, Ken Paxton, wrote on Twitter, “This measure, which has saved thousands of unborn babies, remains fully in effect, and the pro-abortion plaintiffs’ lawsuit against the state is essentially finished. TEXAS IS PRO-LIFE!

This victory for life is catching, as many states around our country have begun to attempt the passing of similar legislation in hopes of following Texas’ lead. I am thrilled for our allies at Texas Values and their role and support in seeing the Heartbeat Act come to fruition. Their hard work, combined with the dedication of Texas AG Paxton, has paid off and set a new precedent for the protection of life.

This is why we, Family Policy Alliance of New Mexico, exist in the Land of Enchantment. Because our state needs frontline fighters for policy who will protect life. What is happening in Texas can happen here, but there are some very important ingredients needed, some of which we already have and some that we desperately need.

What we have…

What we need…

Our partnership creates a beautiful potential for the future of New Mexico. Together, we can elect conservative legislators, let go of liberal Supreme Court justices and spread the excitement for our movement in New Mexico.

It’s time for the family to take action.

Will you take action today by forwarding this email to 5 friends? Introduce them to our movement and share the vision of a better New Mexico and the reality of achieving it through our partnership.

Today we are a state that is profiting from the abortion industry – via “abortion tourism” and federal Medicaid payments. . Tomorrow, we have the potential of becoming a Pro-Life New Mexico. Let’s do this together, for our faith, our families, and our freedoms.

Taking Action,

Jodi Hendricks
Executive Director

 

As we head into the weekend, we wanted to share a quick update on what’s happening in “Woke D.C.” and beyond—because you and many other pro-family Americans continue to make your voices heard:

The Good News

The Bad News

  • The Biden Administration announced their plan to create a database of federal employees’ religious beliefs.
    • Senator Lankford (OK), Senator Scott (FL), and 40 Members of Congress are seeking answers.
  • The Department of Health and Human Services recently created the “Reproductive Healthcare Access Task Force.” This task force is charged with:
    • Promoting abortion access through the Department’s policies, research, and programs.
    • Countering the record-breaking number of pro-life laws in the states (While these ongoing efforts to counter pro-life laws is certainly alarming, it’s extremely good news that there are so many new life-affirming laws that have been passed in the states in the first place—laws that wouldn’t be possible without you.)
  • H.R. 4521 the America C.O.M.P.E.T.E.S Act, passed the House.
    • 221 Democrats and 1 Republican voted for the bill.
    • Instead helping the American economy compete with nations like China, this legislation is a Trojan horse containing elements of:
      • The so-called “Build Back Better Act”
      • Critical race theory
      • Climate change
      • Equality Act language to promote LGBT ideology
    • Stay tuned for more updates on this legislation.
  • H.R. 3485, The Global Respect Act, passed the House.
    • 221 Democrats and 6 Republicans voted for the bill.
    • This bill uses broad language that could allow the Biden Administration to revoke or deny entry to the U.S. for foreign individuals, like pastors, who do not agree with radical gender ideology.
    • The bill has been sent to the Senate, where it will likely be harder for the bill to pass.

While we are still seeing bad news coming from D.C., here’s the GREAT news: YOUR continued engagement is making a difference! With state legislatures in session and elections just around the corner, we’ll continue to help you make your voice heard to your elected officials at the right time. Stay tuned for more updates!
