PRO-LIFE HYDE AMENDMENT PROTECTIONS
Last week, we reported the Biden Administration seeks to remove bi-partisan Hyde Amendment protections that have prohibited your tax dollars from federal abortion funding since 1976 – and saved millions of lives.
Thankfully, New Mexico’s only pro-life congresswoman, Yvette Herrell has a history of defending life as a state representative in the New Mexico legislature– in fact, she was a bill sponsor of NMAFL draft legislation, “The Late-Term Abortion Ban Act” during her tenure.
Congresswoman Herrell shared some good news with New Mexico Alliance for Life:
“Americans overwhelmingly oppose taxpayer funding of abortion, and the Biden Administration’s effort to dismantle the Hyde Amendment is unconscionable. I am a proud co-sponsor of H.R. 18, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. It’s simple – taxpayer money should never fund abortions.
H.R. 18 will make the Hyde Amendment taxpayer protections permanent and government-wide. As a member of the national pro-life coalition to keep the Hyde Amendment, New Mexico Alliance for Life will be making a big announcement soon about what you can do to help save the Hyde Amendment!

RADICAL ANTI-LIFE BILLS TAKE EFFECT
Last Friday marked a tragic day in New Mexico’s history, as two anti-life measures become law: assisted suicide and abortion up to birth–without conscience protections. Radical anti-life Democrat legislators championed by Governor Grisham, along with a few Republicans rammed both bills through the legislature despite major opposition. Sadly, many unprecedented and unfair changes to the committee hearing process stifled public comment, participation, and transparency.
New Mexico Alliance for Life helped spearhead the effort to defeat these radical bills by providing expert witness testimony, policy analysis, messaging, an online petition and mobilizing the public. With your support will continue to fight back and expose the radical abortion lobby!
