New Mexico Senate Votes to Repeal Abortion Law

Senate Republicans Respond

SANTA FE – Following a lengthy debate in which Senate Democrats refused to answer questions from Republican members, the Senate today voted to repeal New Mexico’s abortion law. Senate Bill 10, sponsored by Democratic Senator Linda Lopez (District 11-Bernalillo), strikes an entire section of law that among other things protects medical professionals from being forced to participate in abortions and requires that abortions be performed by licensed physicians, using safe medical procedures. All fifteen Senate Republicans and two Democrats voted against the legislation.
