Abortion

The Supreme Court overturned Roe vs Wade and states are now able to regulate abortion. The ruling did not change anything in New Mexico, as abortions are legal at any time in the pregnancy under current state law. 

To change that law, the Democrat legislature would have to pass a bill that will then need to be signed by the governor. 

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has taken an extreme position that abortions should be legal up to the moment of birth. This has made New Mexico the late-term abortion capital of America. She opposes parental notification laws and believes minors should be able to undergo abortion procedures without parents even knowing about it. 

Mark is pro-life, but as governor he will seek a middle ground with our legislature that ends the practice of late-term abortion. Mark believes permitting abortion up to 15 weeks and in cases involving rape, incest, and when a mother’s life is at risk is a position that most in New Mexico will support regardless of party affiliation. This will end the barbaric practice of late-term abortions. Mark also strongly supports policies that provide support to expectant mothers and their unborn children. And he will always protect access to contraception and healthcare.
