Congressman Pearce Marches to Protect Life in New Mexico
Today in Santa Fe Congressman Steve Pearce (NM-02) marched with hundreds of New Mexicans during the Sanctity of Life Awareness and Unity Day:
“Today, we gather to fight for life and show support for America’s most innocent – the unborn. We march to reinforce the deep-seated belief that we all share: protecting the rights of the unborn is a noble pursuit. We can never speak too strongly for those that cannot speak for themselves. While fighting for the victims of abortion we must also help the women harmed by the abortion industry. Too long abortion providers like Planned Parenthood have exploited women, harming them physically and emotionally. This is why earlier this year, I voted to defund Planned Parenthood and invest resources into Community Health Clinics that can provide better, more comprehensive care for women. Being pro-life and being pro-woman go hand-in-hand,” said Congressman Pearce.
In the state of New Mexico alone, there are over 165 Community Health Centers compared to the mere six Planned Parenthood locations.
This is one of two pro-life events that Congressman Pearce will participate in this week. On Friday, Congressman Pearce will join thousands across the country in Washington, DC in the 2016 March For Life.
