Albuquerque, New Mexico- Did you know that New Mexico is one of 16 states that fully funds abortions, even late-term abortions? You may be surprised that state tax dollars are used to kill New Mexico's children since the Hyde Amendment prevents federal dollars from directly funding the deadly procedures. However, New Mexico's abortion facilities are taking full advantage of this state funding loophole. But why should the state force us to pay for other peoples abortions when we have religious and moral objections to it?
Until we have the right leadership to make New Mexico Abortion Free, we must rise up to let our voices be heard and protest the use of our tax dollars that are funding this modern holocaust. In doing so, babies lives will be saved and the hearts of those in our community will be changed after seeing the truth.
Sadly, the abortion industry and their supporters, which include the majority of state legislators and pro-abortion members of clergy in New Mexico, are very proud that New Mexico is drawing women from all across the world to Albuquerque for abortions. It's unfortunately a booming business that is embraced with pride.
According to an article published by the Santa Fe New Mexican,
One-third of the 1,193 state abortion restrictions passed since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Roe v. Wade in 1973 were enacted between 2011 and 2017, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive rights research and policy group.
The Current Crisis
While Churches are currently closed, abortion clinics in New Mexico are open and have been deemed essential businesses. In fact, a spokesperson from New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham's office issued the following statement by phone to Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico when pressed about closing New Mexico abortion clinics to help stop the spread of Covid-19,
"We have discussed this matter and the clinics are not going to close. Some people are claiming that abortions are elective surgeries and we are not considering them as elective surgeries."
While New Mexico takes great pride in its religious traditions, New Mexico also seemingly takes pride in being the late term abortion capital of the WORLD!
In Jesus' parable of the prodigal son, it took a nationwide famine to finally bring the wayward son to his senses.
Join us for prayer and protest this week
(Current banner hanging at the UNM Center for Reproductive Health (UNMCRH),
which performs abortions up to 25 weeks.)
This Friday is a great opportunity to come together for prayer on behalf of the babies scheduled to die, our state and its leadership. The University of New Mexico (UNM) is producing our state's doctors, nurses, lawyers, and politicians. Our prayers are essential as we anticipate the changes our state faces post Covid-19. With our tax dollars, UNM also runs a free-standing abortion clinic, UNM Center for Reproductive Health (UNMCRH), which performs abortions up to 25 weeks.
Tara Shaver, spokeswoman for Abortion Free New Mexico, issued the following statement to local media,
“If Governor Lujan Grisham is going to insist that abortion services are essential in New Mexico, our prayer and protest presence outside of these facilities is equally essential. Every life has value, and if she refuses to protect the lives of the smallest New Mexicans, those in their mothers’ wombs, then we have an obligation and the right afforded by the U.S. Constitution to do so. Our right to the freedom of speech and to peaceably assemble shall not be infringed upon.”
