Democrats will stop at nothing until every woman is within driving distance of an abortion clinic.
It doesn’t matter that the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade or that half of the women in America are pro-life, Democrats will move hell & earth until an abortion clinic is on every street corner.
Democratic New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed an executive order allocating $10 million in taxpayer dollars to fund an abortion clinic a few miles from the Mexico border.
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 to 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 restrict & prohibit access to reproductive care, New Mexico will continue to not only protect access to abortion, but expand & strengthen reproductive health care statewide.
We will ensure that women & families in NM & beyond are supported every step of the way.

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.
Dona Ana County is located at the very southern point of the state where it borders Mexico. The county is in the center of the state where it does not border its neighboring states, Texas and Arizona. Arizona will either ban abortion after 15 weeks of gestation or enforce an 1800’s law that bans all abortions with very few exceptions. Texas’s trigger law has recently taken effect which outlaws all abortions except in cases threatening the mother’s life.
Following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in June, Grisham signed an executive order that same month to prevent state agencies and employees from engaging in criminal investigations by other states in connection to a woman who received an abortion in New Mexico.
Meanwhile, Grisham hasn’t authorized any taxpayer money to fund pregnancy centers in New Mexico, which proves the so-called “pro-choice” movement actually has nothing to do with the right to choose.
It’s about killing unborn babies.
