NM Legislative Update on Sanctity of Life Issues

Here we go, Friends….please read through the information I just received from Dauneen Dulce.  Let’s get ready to fight for LIFE!
   “Yesterday marked 44 years since the Roe v. Wade ruling.  Millions of babies had their lives sacrificed because of that ruling.  Even though the numbers are going down each year, abortion is still an atrocity, has moved into infanticide with doctors killing live babies after they are born. Yet there is great hope for abortion to be eliminated legally in the years to come.  Today, President Donald Trump made an executive order to defund Planned Parenthood.  This is a beginning of the actions that will take place to ultimately rid our nation of court sanctioned abortion. We must stop infanticide too.
   HB37- The Born Alive Protection Act has been assigned to 2 committees: Consumer and Public Affairs and the Judiciary Committee.  This bill will make it illegal to ignore or to kill a new baby that has been delivered from its mother.  This is being done across the nation and even at the University of New Mexico.  RTLCNM SUPPORTS HB 37 SPONSORED BY REP. ROD MONTOYA. Unfortunately the culture of death that deals with the end of our life is supported by many, even those who oppose abortion. They don’t see that having such a bill become legal will encourage those who are vulnerable to depression, fear, and concern of autonomy and expenses.  People who are old, chronically ill, disabled will be pressured to “die with dignity.”  This is not love, compassion or caring.  It is destructive!
   HB 171 CALLED END OF LIFE OPTIONS AND SPONSORED BY SEN. BILL MCCAMLEY AND REP. DEBORAH ARMSTRONG HAS BEEN INTRODUCED INTO THE HOUSE AND ASSIGNED TO HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES AND THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE.  RTLCNM OPPOSES THIS LEGISLATION. I am asking each and every one of you reading this email to write, call or e-mail your legislator immediately and ask them SUPPORT HB 37 and to OPPOSE HB 171.  For talking points look at the attached flyers.  We have also attached the information on the legislators.  To write them: Send it to the New Mexico State Legislature, 490 Old Santa Fe Trail, Santa Fe, NM 87501.  Their e-mail is at the bottom of their name on the sheet.  To call: Call 505-986-4300 and ask for the room of your legislator and give the secretary the information and ask for a response.
   The Bill even allows a nurse practitioner and others to give a prescription to a person for the purpose of killing themselves.  They are not in the position to diagnose or to be able to tell someone they are terminally ill. The language is terrible and written in a manner that much interpretation can be made by those who would be in position to help kill someone. So while the national news is very good, we in New Mexico must do our part to stop those who want to use death as a solution to those “unwanted” by some in our society. In gratefulness for our lives, please do your part now – this is a team effort, this is being pro-life.”
Thank you, Dauneen and Thank You, my Friends for working together with us!
