We’re almost done! The New Mexico State legislative session is almost over, and it’s been an eventful month in Santa Fe. Anti-reproductive health care legislators proposed legislation to restrict access to abortion care, including: forced parental notification for minors, abortion restrictions, and attempts to vilify providers and patients. At every step of the way, we stood strong and we fought back. Throughout all of these attempts to restrict access to necessary health care, we stood strong and won because of the support from our reproductive health care advocates.
We are supported by many champions in the New Mexico House of Representatives, including:
Representative Eliseo Alcon
Representative Debbie Armstrong
Representative Angelica Rubio
Representative Nathan Small
Representative Joanne Ferrary
These Planned Parenthood supporters stood on the floor of the House, in Committees, and in their communities to protect folks across New Mexico from political interference in their personal medical decisions. They uphold New Mexico values –– and they believe the decision to have an abortion should stay between a woman, her provider, and her family. Our supporters oppose the hate-filled agendas of the Trump-Pence Administration and Governor Martinez.
Our champions defend the rights of LGBTQ folks in New Mexico so everyone in New Mexico can flourish. These champions believe people deserve access to compassionate, safe, high-quality health care. We are proud to stand with them.
