NM House Committee Advances 20-Week Ban
February 26, 2015
Even though Albuquerque voters turned out in record numbers in 2013 to defeat a 20-week ban, anti-choice members in the New Mexico House have passed a similar ban out of committee.
H.B. 390 is a politically-motivated piece of legislation that not only directly contradicts the mandate of voters in the state, but ignores the real circumstances and complications women can face during pregnancy.
We know that women need access to abortion later in pregnancy for a variety of reasons, and they should be trusted, with their doctors, to make medical decisions without interference from politicians.
