Today, Planned Parenthood Votes New Mexico (PPVNM) announced early endorsements for the 2020 election. The individuals endorsed have consistently fought to keep abortion care between a patient and their health care provider, without meaningless political interference. They also voted in 2019 to remove a harmful, outdated abortion ban, which ultimately failed to pass in the Senate and which PPVNM will be seeking once again to remove in 2021.

“We’re thrilled to support this incredible list of champions. These individuals have proven to be true defenders of reproductive rights time and again, and we look forward to working with them to protect and expand access to reproductive health care for all New Mexicans and for our neighbors who look to us as a safe haven for care,” said Sarah Taylor-Nanista, executive director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains Action Fund.

New Polling From Planned Parenthood Shows Strong Support for Abortion Care Access in New Mexico
