Dear Friends of Protect ABQ Women & Children,
My name is Yvette Herrell, and as a New Mexico State Representative, I applaud the work of the local, grassroots-led effort, Protect ABQ Women & Children, to ban late-term abortions in Albuquerque.
Sadly, New Mexico is one of the few states that allow for abortions for any reason until the day of birth because it is difficult to pass common-sense restrictions through state legislative committees. Year after year, measures to protect the health and safety of women and children fail because of a handful of legislators who block those measures from getting to a full vote in the House or Senate. It is for this reason that nail salons have more oversight than abortion facilities in New Mexico.
The abortion industry lobby has a stronghold in our state. Those that do not want this ban to pass, are not telling the truth about protecting women’s health — as it is much more dangerous for a mother to have a late-term abortion than to give birth. That’s why we must work even harder to reach every voter in Albuquerque and get them out to vote for the “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Ordinance.” This is a history-making vote that you can be an important part of.
I am asking on behalf of Protect ABQ Women & Children for any donations that you are able to make to help pass the 20-week abortion ban that will ban abortion halfway through pregnancy and beyond.
Early In-Person and Absentee voting
begins on October 21. That means we only have a few days to get the message out to ban this horrific and dangerous practice in Albuquerque.
Your contribution of $15, $35 or $50 can go a long way in helping to protect our women and children
— and put a stop to the thriving late-term abortion industry in Albuquerque — which is home to the largest late-term abortion facility in the country.
Thank you for your assistance, we look forward to a victory with your help.
Again we are asking for any amount that you can help with. Please donate here
Thank you for your generosity and support.
Representative Yvette Herrell
New Mexico House of Representatives
In July, members of Protect ABQ Women & Children, along with other groups, turned in nearly 27,000 signatures, more than double the necessary needed to put the “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Ordinance” measure on a city-wide ballot, in half the allotted time. Protect ABQ Women & Children is a local advocacy campaign that is working to raise awareness of the dangers of the late-term abortion industry in Albuquerque and to garner support for the “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Ordinance” which bans abortion after 20 weeks, or halfway through pregnancy.
