DR TONY LEVATINO FORMER LATE-TERM ABORTIONIST AND LOCAL OB-GYN ENDORSES HB 390, HB 391
The Late Term Abortion Ban Act, HB 390 sponsored by Rep. Yvette Herrell (R, Alamogordo) and the Parental Notification of Abortion Act HB 391 sponsored by Rep. Alonzo Baldonado (R, Los Lunas) include common sense protections for women, minors and unborn children. Both bills continue to gain bipartisan support and are written to withstand constitutional challenges. Find an accurate legal summary of HB 390 and its content here.
Dr. Tony Levatino, a former abortionist and practicing OB-GYN in Las Cruces supports HB 390 and HB 391. Dr. Levatino has performed 1,200 abortions before becoming pro-life and served as an expert witness before the U.S. Congress on the issue of late-term abortion. Dr. Levatino knows the barbarity of abortions preformed on unborn children after 5 months --and the danger for women.
Dr. Levatino, states that late-term abortion is "neither simple nor safe." Late-term abortion after 5 months is more dangerous than natural birth. " As a doctor, you know that these are children; you know that these are human beings with arms and legs and heads and they move around and they are very active." In fact , like countless others who left the abortion industry, Dr. Levatino also makes clear the reality of these procedures, "When the abortionist finishes a suction D & C he has to literally reassemble the child."
The New Mexico Conference of Catholic Bishops (includes all three New Mexico Bishops: the Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, Bishop of the Diocese of Las Cruces and the Bishop of the Diocese of Gallup) also strongly support both HB 390 and HB 391 as stated through spokesperson Allen Sánchez: "Both of these bills accomplish much good and will save many unborn children." -New Mexico Conference of Catholic Bishops
