[UPDATE:] Bill to decriminalize abortion in New Mexico PASSES in the HOUSE
[UPDATE:]House Bill #473 that decriminalizes abortion PASSES in the House. The bill now moves on to the Judiciary Committee.
You’ve done it again! Thank you for turning out on a SUNDAY to show lawmakers you are invested in the health of New Mexico women! HB 220, the Late-term Abortion Ban was defeated, along with HB 221, the Forced Parental Notification Bill. These two Draconian bills have no place in a society that values the lives and healthcare of women – thank you for your support.
The 2017 New Mexico Legislative Session is not quite over yet, so we’re still here.
We’re calling on you, once more, to come to the Roundhouse to make visible your support for New Mexico women’s right to decide.
House Bill #473 that decriminalizes abortion PASSES in the House. The bill now moves on to the Judiciary Committee.
On THURSDAY, March 9, HB 473, the Decriminalize Abortion bill will be heard from 1:30pm – 4:30pm in the House Consumer & Public Affairs committee, room 309.
Without Roe v. Wade, a safe and legal abortion in New Mexico would be a criminal act. In these times of great uncertainty when it comes to abortion access, we need to make sure our laws protect New Mexico women. This bill does just that by guaranteeing a woman’s right to health care in New Mexico, no matter what.
Please join us at the Roundhouse on Thursday.
If you’re not able to join us on Thursday, there’s still something you can do. Send a thank you note to lawmakers, letting them know you appreciate their efforts to protect and expand the reproductive rights of New Mexico women.
