New Mexico GOP Candidates Would Threaten Women’s Right To Choose

Once Again, the New Mexico GOP wants to turn New Mexico into Texas

Yesterday, September 1st, a new Texas law went into effect that bans abortions after six weeks —before most women even know that they’re pregnant. Many Texans will now be forced to travel to New Mexico and other neighboring states to access these critical health care services. But New Mexico will only remain a safe haven for reproductive health care access if we continue to elect legislators who protect reproductive rights.  Currently, all of the New Mexican GOP candidates for governor are anti-abortion extremists who are out of touch and would seek to strip this critical right away from many New Mexicans

The majority of New Mexicans agree that every woman has the right to make her own decision about her pregnancy and her reproductive health. In 2017, 74% of rural New Mexicans and 79% of Catholic New Mexicans said that they respect a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions. Across all demographics, New Mexicans believe that people have the right to make their own choices for themselves and their families. 

The extremist GOP candidates for governor want to push their own beliefs about abortion onto New Mexicans. If GOP candidates had their way, New Mexico would be in the same situation as Texas right now. They are dangerous for reproductive rights and abortion health care in New Mexico.
