Subject BREAKING: New Mexico lawmakers advance bill to end abortion restrictions and conscience protections
Poster Handle Jalayaja
Post Content
"On January 26, Senate Bill 10 passed the Senate Health and Public Affairs Committee in a 5-3 vote along party lines. It will now move to the Senate Judiciary Committee. The bill aims to repeal a 1969 statute that prohibits abortion except in the cases of rape, incest, or risk to the mother’s life. When Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in 1973, the statute became meaningless. If the statute is repealed, abortion would remain legal up until birth for any reason, even in the event that Roe v. Wade is overturned.

Senate Bill 10 would also end conscience protections for medical professionals, which currently prevent them from being forced to commit or participate in abortions against their will, and would allow non-doctors to commit abortions."
