Governor Says Criminal Abortion Law Must Go!
Permanently Protect Abortion in New Mexico!
Barriers to reproductive health care only benefit a political agenda that does not reflect the values of New Mexico. As New Mexicans, we understand that a woman and her family need access to a full range of health care, including safe and legal abortion.
With the future of the U.S. Supreme Court (and its ruling in Roe vs Wade) at risk, we must repeal out-of-date anti-abortion language in the criminal code of New Mexico, as it only threaten to criminalize women and health care providers. Especially in a rural state, we must permanently protect access to reproductive health care, including abortion, no matter what happens in Washington D.C.
Add your name NOW to stand in support of New Mexico families' right to make personal medical decisions, including abortion, without government interference!

Nationwide Injunction halts harmful Trump birth control rule
This week, federal judges in California and Pennsylvania issued injunctions halting implementation of the Trump administration’s attacks on birth control coverage under the ACA. Under the Trump rules first proposed in October 2017, employers would be able to deny their employees birth control coverage because of the employer’s religious or moral objections.
While the injunction in California affects only the 13 states and DC that are parties to that case, the injunction in Pennsylvania blocks the Trump rules nationwide on the same day that they were set to take effect. Like Hobby Lobby and Zubik, the two previous court battles to determine whether religiously-affiliated employers must provide coverage, the current fight is likely to end up at the Supreme Court sometime next year.
