I oppose HB 7, the abortion up to birth bill because:
1)The majority of Americans 70 % and the majority of New Mexicans support a limit on abortion after the first trimester (3 months)- NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll.
2) Codify abortion up-to-birth in state law.
3) Remove the state’s only conscience protection, forcing medical professionals to perform/assist in abortions since there are no other explicit state or federal conscience protections preventing this.
4) Does not add any protections for women, but further empowers abortion businesses with less accountability.
5) Removes any parental involvement protecting minors from being taken for an abortion by an adult male.
6) Forces NM taxpayers to continue to fund healthy moms to abort a healthy baby up to 9 months of pregnancy through state Medicaid.

Senator David Gallegos (R, SD-41) repeatedly asked the “expert witness” for SB 10, Ellie Rushforth of the ACLU New Mexico, a group that has openly called for the removal of conscience protections, whether or not the bill would allow a healthy mom to abort a healthy baby up to 9 months. Despite being an expert witness, Rushforth was unwilling to answer the question, “these are complex medical decisions,” and flatly stated she “can’t answer that.”
“SB 10 strips the state’s only explicit conscience protection preventing medical professionals from being forced to perform abortions, it strips any parental involvement requirements for underage girls seeking abortions, and it puts no protections in place limiting abortions up-to-birth,” said Elisa Martinez, New Mexico Alliance for Life Executive Director.
OB-GYN Dr. William Moore of Clovis, NM was among a number of medical professionals who testified against SB 10. Dr. Moore pled with senators that SB 10 would “greatly harm New Mexico’s medical professional community and severely exacerbate the already severe shortage of physicans and other medical professionals in New Mexico.”
Senator Dr. Gregg Schmedes, (R,SD 19) the only practicing medical professional in the New Mexico Legislature expressed concern about removing the state’s only conscience protection,”We heard loud and clear from healthcare professionals throughout the state than an assault on their conscience protections is an assault on the practice of healthcare itself. Abortion ends human life and nobody should be forced to participate in ending a human life.”

From Dr. Jim Denison: I have been responding this week to the Biden administration’s plans to advance abortion in our country. As I write today, I am aware that some reading this article have had an abortion in the past; I do not want to cause greater pain than they have already experienced. I also know that some abortions are unavoidable when the life of the mother is at risk and acknowledge that abortion in cases of rape and incest is a hotly contested issue. However, these circumstances together comprise only 7 percent of abortions in America.

The 93 percent which are elective are the focus of a massive conflict in our culture, one that I believe has exacerbated the depth of our present divisions. Is there a way forward?

Twenty-three pairs of chromosomes 

In my view, grounded both in Scripture and in science, life begins at conception. This means that a fetus in its mother’s womb is as much a human being as a baby after it is born. To end that life for the reasons that prompt elective abortions today is morally abhorrent and should be illegal.

When a baby is born and thus protected by our laws, it has merely moved location from inside the womb to outside the womb. Nothing else has changed about its biological status. The embryo is completely distinguishable from all other living organisms. It possesses all twenty-three pairs of human chromosomes and is able to develop only into a human being. Nothing new will be added except the growth and development of what it already is.

In short, it is just as human prior to birth as after birth. To claim otherwise is simply wrong on biological and scientific grounds.

In the view of many pro-choice advocates, however, my position constitutes a “war on women.” They believe (counter to science) that we cannot know when life begins, or they claim that the mother should be able to decide what to do with her own body. They see my position as an intrusive injustice against her personal right to privacy. Even if they are personally opposed to abortion, they are convinced that such a personal issue should be decided by the mother, not the government. (The fact that many call her the “mother” points to the fact that the fetus is in fact a child.)

A zero-sum equation 

This rift constitutes a cultural divide unlike any we have seen since the Civil War. This is not like debating the size of a stimulus package during a pandemic or whether a private citizen who was once president of the United States can still be impeached. This debate goes to the sacredness of life itself, whether focused on the preborn baby or the mother.

If a political leader or party supported the mother’s right to kill her newborn infant, we would all be outraged. Pro-life supporters believe that the right to kill a preborn baby is just as wrong.

We therefore believe that it is immoral for our tax dollars to be used to support a procedure we find so abhorrent. We support the Mexico City policy prohibiting the investment of US funds in overseas organizations to promote abortion. And we support the Hyde Amendment that prohibits the use of taxpayer funds to fund most abortions.

The Biden administration, however, has already signaled that it intends to reverse the Mexico City policy. During the presidential campaign, Mr. Biden reversed his position on the Hyde Amendment as well. If he acts on this commitment, my tax dollars will be used to fund abortions both in the US and overseas.

This is a zero-sum equation. Either tax funds from pro-life supporters will support abortion, violating our deepest convictions, or they will not.

It is difficult to imagine a more fundamental issue in American society. This debate transcends electoral politics and is dividing Americans from Americans on a dangerous level.

“Human life is never a burden” 

How should pro-life Christians discuss this issue in ways that will not deepen our cultural fissures?

Recent research shows that political and cultural conflicts are made worse by three behaviors: “othering” (labeling the other side as almost incomprehensibly different from us), “aversion” (they’re not just different but dislikable), and “moralization” (they’re morally bankrupt).

By contrast, the conviction that life is sacred from conception is a spiritual truth grounded on biblical fact. However, “the natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Corinthians 2:14). This is a spiritual battle (2 Corinthians 4:4) that must be fought with spiritual weapons (Ephesians 6:10–18).

To that end, here’s my proposal: When you see people acting against the sanctity of the preborn, pray for them.

  • Pray for the Spirit to open their eyes to biblical truth.
  • Pray for words that will draw them closer to the One who has loved them from the moment of their conception (Matthew 10:20).
  • Pray for God to show you how you can help those facing unexpected pregnancies.
  • Pray for those who offer such ministry and pray about ways you can support them.

Once you have prayed, act on what God reveals to you, serving as his hands and feet to both the preborn and their parents.

Pope Francis was right: “Human life is never a burden. It demands we make space for it, not cast it off.”

Will you pray about ways you can make space for life in your life and our culture today?

NOTE: In my new book, To Follow in His Footsteps: A Daily Walk with Jesus through the Holy Land, you will experience Jesus at dozens of sites where he made his indelible and eternal mark on the world. And you’ll be immersed in Israel through present-day, full-color photos of each site.

Culminating with retracing Jesus’ journey to the cross, you will follow him through his last days on earth before the glory that was Easter morning. You will feel his sorrow, experience his pain, and know his immense love for you. And you will come away with a new appreciation for all God has done and continues to do in our world. Please request your copy of our new Easter devotional today.
