You may have thought Democrats were desperate to save abortion back when Brett Kavanaugh was in the hot seat, but his confirmation has really exposed this party’s death-laden ambitions. Only a couple of months after Kavanaugh took his place on the Supreme Court, we have seen two states propose extraordinarily extremist bills aimed at not only keeping abortion legal but expanding its legality to the third trimester (and beyond). First New York – which actually signed its bill into law – and then Virginia, this has been a month of bloodthirsty horror on the left side of the aisle. And now, apparently, New Mexico is ready to follow suit.
From Fox News:
Following the New York abortion law celebrated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Vermont is pushing a “right to abortion” bill that goes even further. But opponents of a new abortion bill in New Mexico say a proposal in that state would be the “most extreme bill in the nation” due to its far-reaching changes.
Advocates of the abortion bill that decriminalizes abortion in the state say it is needed in case Roe v. Wade is overturned, but pro-life supporters say it allows abortion-on-demand for any reason, taking away parental notification for minors and conscience protections from the state law.
“This bill is a Trojan horse backed by the national abortion lobby in order to establish abortion as a human right by removing so-called ‘religious refusals’ and turn every hospital, clinic and doctor’s office into an abortion clinic or referral center,” Elisa Martinez, executive director of New Mexico Alliance for Life, told Fox News.
Not only does the New Mexico bill make abortion legal no matter what the circumstance or how many weeks into the pregnancy the woman is, it would also force doctors to perform abortions even if they have a conscientious objection to the procedure.
Currently, New Mexico state law includes the following clause, which the new bill would remove:
“Criminal abortion consists of administering to any pregnant woman any medicine, drug or other substance, or using any method or means whereby an untimely termination of her pregnancy is produced or attempted to be produced, with the intent to destroy the fetus, and the termination is not a justified medical termination. Whoever commits criminal abortion is guilty of a fourth-degree felony. Whoever commits criminal abortion which results in the death of the woman is guilty of a second-degree felony.”
If the bill passes the New Mexico senate, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has already said she will sign it into law.
