Did you know?

NM statute  30-18-15
 requires humane extermination of animals, and prohibits intra cardiac injection on a conscious animal–the same procedure is used to cruelly and inhumanely end the life of a human being during a late-term abortion.
  • Sending women to cheap hotels to deliver a dead or alive baby into a toilet is not healthcare – no matter what opponents of SB 183 say.
  • According to Planned Parenthood’s Guttmacher Institute, the  MAJORITY OF LATE-TERM abortions are elective, for reasons like relationship and financial problems or didn’t know they were pregnant.  There are better solutions for women.
  • Why is intra cardiac injection inhumane for animals but allowed for a viable, living, innocent human being in NM?  See protocol here.
  • The late-term abortion provider in NM is facing criminal charges for violating women’s rights and the law.  I do not want my taxpayer dollars funding this.
  • NM has the highest percentage of late-term abortions in the country- according to the CDC, 5 times the national average.
  • 42 states have protections in place limiting abortion after viability of the unborn baby.
  • 98% of governments across the word have banned the practice of abortion to the day of birth-except for countries like China and North Korea
  • 80% of Americans agree with limiting abortion after 3rd trimester and 69% after 2nd trimester.
  • Forced taxpayer funding of late term abortions must end. NM Taxpayers are charged $8,000 – $16,000 per late-term abortion, which is not health care.
  • Late-term abortions are used to terminate the lives of babies with down syndrome: 95% of downs babies are aborted after 20 weeks.
