Establish safe abortion clinics

Access to a legal medical procedure - abortion - is significantly unavailable in New Mexico's rural areas. This is unconstitutional discrimination against women. It threatens their health and overall well-being, and limits their choice of career and life path.

Establish safe abortion clinics

I had an abortion before it was legal. It was not performed in a sterile environment and the abortionist had no medical training. There was no followup. I almost died. Many women did.

Do not judge me for what I did; you do not have that right. Nor do you have any right to dictate what I do with my own body - it is my sovereign territory.

I call upon the New Mexico State Legislature to right a great wrong being done to half of its citizens. Establish or modify existing, rural clinics that can perform safe abortions for women who have the constitutional right to choose them.
