GOP uses tax plan for a sneak attack on abortion

These past two weeks have been extremely good weeks for progressives in the Land of Enchantment. Last week progressives swept the Las Cruces City Council races, giving progressives a majority on the council. This week the Duke City also had landslide wins for progressives in the runoff elections for mayor and city council. Does this feel a little too good to be true? Not to worry – we’re here to burst that feel good bubble we’ve all been living in and bring us back to the abortion battle Republicans in Congress can’t seem to let go of.

Abortion and Respect

There are so many ways that we can talk about abortion – often times, speak about it in the context of protecting the decision making ability of women and the protection of the legality of it. As we approach the end of another week in which Republicans in Congress took another swing at Roe, we thought it would be a good time to remind everyone of what is at the root of what we all fight for – respect. This movement transcends genders, generations, and socioeconomic status, and tied by the notion that respect is a tangible value that everyone deserves. We believe that decisions about abortion and reproductive health are deeply personal and belong between a woman and her medical provider. Government interference in these private medical decisions is unacceptable.

Republicans attack abortion… again

As New Mexicans, we understand the value of respect – which is why we respect women to make their own decisions. Personal decisions about abortion need to remain with New Mexican women, their families, and their medical providers.
