Albuquerque, New Mexico- Did you know that New Mexico is ranked #1 as the country's MOST dependent state on federal funding? What does New Mexico use a majority of this federal funding for?
According to a report from Yahoo Finance,
“Because the federal income tax is progressive,” Veuger said, “I think you can also generally say that poor states receive more federal funding through Medicaid, which is a huge part of states’ budgets.”
New Mexico is ranked as one of the poorest states in the nation. It ranked #2 in 2020!
New Mexico is one of 16 states that FULLY funds abortions through Medicaid! So wrap your mind around this, the Hyde Amendment prevents FEDERAL TAX FUNDS from paying for abortions. However, New Mexico, as one of the country's poorest states, qualifies as the MOST dependent state in the nation for Federal funds, and what does New Mexico use that tax money for? They use New Mexico (state) Medicaid to FULLY fund ABORTIONS!
Since it is now New Mexico "state" money, it is no longer considered Federal TAX dollars funding abortions, it's New Mexico Medicaid funding abortions!
Here are 4 reports about Tax Funded abortions through New Mexico Medicaid by Tara Shaver:
So what can you do about your tax dollars fully funding abortions in New Mexico?
Well, you can join us in protest this Friday (and every Friday) at The University of New Mexico's free standing abortion facility! In addition to New Mexico Medicaid funding abortions, New Mexico's public University and Hospital is performing abortions up to 24 weeks gestation (and beyond at the hospital), as well as actively training up the next generation of abortionists!
Join us and Michelle Garcia Holmes, who is running for United States Congress (CD1) for prayer and protest this Friday, May 15th from 10-11AM.
Michelle Garcia Holmes issued the following statement,
"Join Faith to Action Friday at 2301 Yale SE, Gibson & Yale, prayers outside the UNM abortion clinic, they are terminating babies up to 24 weeks. Let's stop this egregious act in New Mexico and let's start standing up for women and babies today!"
JOIN US AND PUT YOUR FAITH INTO ACTION
