By now, you may have heard the news that an out-of-state group is gathering signatures for an anti-abortion ballot measure in Albuquerque. If they succeed in gathering the required number of signatures, the question will appear on the ballot this fall and put women's health services at risk.
Stand with thousands of other New Mexicans to fight this attempt to interfere in a woman's private medical decisions.
Government and politicians should not intrude on difficult, personal decisions, such as abortion, or whether and when to have children. These decisions should be made between a woman, her family, and her doctor, not by government or politicians.
We've been tracking this effort to interfere in women's private medical decisions since before the news broke in the press. The ACLU of New Mexico, along with a diverse coalition of community groups and women's organizations, has a plan to fight this initiative at the ballot box and in the courts if necessary.
These Texas-style anti-abortion laws don't belong in New Mexico. Pledge to keep private medical decisions between a woman and her doctor.
