New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has signed Senate Bill 10 into law, repealing a 1969 statue that criminalized abortion.
“A woman has the right to make decisions about her own body,” Gov. Lujan Grisham said. “Anyone who seeks to violate bodily integrity, or to criminalize womanhood, is in the business of dehumanization. New Mexico is not in that business – not any more. Our state statutes now reflect this inviolable recognition of humanity and dignity. I am incredibly grateful to the tireless advocates and legislators who fought through relentless misinformation and fear-mongering to make this day a reality. Equality for all, equal justice and equal treatment – that’s the standard. And I’m proud to lead a state that today moved one step closer to that standard.”
The House approved the abortion-rights bill on a 40-30 vote last week.
“The time has finally come to get this outdated abortion law off the books and ensure that we keep abortion accessible, safe and legal in New Mexico,” Sen. Linda Lopez, lead sponsor of SB 10, said. “Thank you to Governor Lujan Grisham for signing this legislation, thank you to every one of my fellow bill sponsors and community advocates, and thank you to all of the voters of New Mexico who made your voices heard in the last election. Abortion is a personal health care decision. We can hold our own moral values on abortion and still trust individuals to make their own reproductive health care decisions.”
The 1969 state law criminalizing abortion was not currently enforced because the U.S. Supreme Court passed Roe v. Wade in 1973, legalizing abortion nationwide.
It’s been ignored completely, so this means nothing. NM is probably the late term abortion capital of the USA.
About her own body? Yes. About the body of another? Well,what would Jesus say?
“Anyone who seeks to violate bodily integrity...is in the business of dehumanization.”
Anyone, Governor? Does that include the abortionist who violates the baby’s bodily integrity by tearing it apart limb from limb, or suctioning his/her brains out? Have you thought about what happens to a baby in an abortion, Governor? Have you? You should! You should sit down and think about that, for the good of your immortal soul.
Ah, there's that tired old lie repeated ad infinitum
Anyone with a wee bit of common sense knows that it has little to do with "her body" and everything to do with another human's body, young as it may be.
“The 1969 state law criminalizing abortion was not currently enforced because the U.S. Supreme Court passed Roe v. Wade in 1973, legalizing abortion nationwide.”
“A woman has the right to make decisions about her own body,”
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.”
So we women can quit wearing these effin' masks?
Gov. Lujan Grisham Signs Senate Bill 10, Repealing 1969 Child Genocide Ban...
Make America Great.
Spay or Neuter your Liberals.
Not ignored as much as unenforceable.
Amazingly warped thinking. Killing innocent children humanizes us. Tearing the body of another person apart isn't making decisions about their body...
SCOTUS issued an opinion. We should treat it as such. Just an opinion.
Unenforceable due to Roe v. Wade. They repealed the law to where abortion would remain legal if Roe v. Wade was overturned.
“Our state statutes now reflect this inviolable recognition of humanity and dignity”
You can’t get more lost than that.
Talk about moral relativism.
She makes me sick.
These Catholic politicians are really inspired by the gospel message of ‘ME, MYSELF, AND I.’
KEEP THEM DEAD BABIES COMING!!!!!!
The body inside her body is not her body.
