ALBUQUERQUE, NM –– Planned Parenthood Votes New Mexico (PPVNM) is proud to announce endorsements of gubernatorial candidate Representative Michelle Lujan Grisham and Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver for re-election in the 2018 Democratic primary. Representative Lujan Grisham and Secretary Toulouse Oliver are long-time champions of reproductive health care.

Marshall Martinez, Director of Public Affairs for PPVNM, says, “We know, and elections have proven, that people in New Mexico value access to reproductive health care, including abortion care. PPVNM is a trusted source of information for voters about these critical issues in this coming election. Protecting access to reproductive health care will be a top priority for Michelle Lujan Grisham and Maggie Toulouse Oliver.”

Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham currently serves in the U.S. House of Representatives for New Mexico’s 1st congressional district, where she has continuously supported reproductive health care access. Lujan Grisham received an “A+” on her Planned Parenthood Action Fund report card for her commitment to the Planned Parenthood mission. She has tirelessly challenged attempts to restrict abortion care access and to strip Medicaid from patients. She also advocated for legislation to expand health care programs like the Children’s Health Insurance Program and Medicaid to legal immigrants through bills such as the HEAL Act of 2017. She is outspoken in her support of reproductive health care access, including abortion care. As governor, she will best represent the interests and rights of people in New Mexico.

Current New Mexico Secretary of State, Maggie Toulouse Oliver, is running for re-election, and is committed to fighting for the voting and reproductive health care rights of all people. As County Clerk, Toulouse Oliver worked to protect everyone’s right to vote, and as Secretary of State since 2016, she has continued to expand voting access through the Native American Voting Task Force, which seeks to increase education and voting registration among New Mexico’s numerous and diverse Native American communities. Secretary Toulouse Oliver works hard to ensure that every eligible citizen has access to voting, which is essential to protecting reproductive health care rights and preserving the Planned Parenthood mission.


Planned Parenthood Votes New Mexico advocates for creating and protecting state policies that ensure reproductive health care access, secure effective sex education, and protect an individual’s right to determine when and whether they become pregnant. PPVNM challenges government interference in personal decisions that should be left to women and their families.
