Governor Orders $10 Million New Abortion Clinic
Beyond this new abortion clinic, in Dona Ana County, the governor seeks to expand abortion statewide. Let’s pray.
From The Daily Wire. Democratic New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed an executive order Wednesday allocating $10 million in taxpayer dollars to fund an abortion clinic.
The governor’s capital outlay funds for the 2023 legislative session will go toward developing a clinic in Dona Ana County to provide abortions, prenatal care, labor and delivery, postpartum care and support, family planning and medical care for miscarriages, the executive order read. The order directs the state’s Department of Health to develop a plan expand abortion access across the state.
The order additionally directs the Human Services Department to impose policies to “improve that efficiency and sustainability” of abortion and other services.
“As more states move to restrict and prohibit access to reproductive care, New Mexico will continue to not only protect access to abortion, but to expand and strengthen reproductive health care throughout the state,” the governor said in a press release. …
The order said abortion is an “essential part of reproductive healthcare” and declared that it must be safe, legal and easy to access. It then said that more women are relying on New Mexico to undergo an abortion as its neighboring states have banned or restricted the procedure. …
The governor is seeking re-election in a November race against her Republican opponent, Mark Ronchetti, who has advocated for banning abortion after 15 weeks of gestation, according to Las Cruces Sun News. …
