Thursday: Three Major Pro-Life Bills to Be Heard Before House Consumer and Public Affairs Committee 1:30 PM Room 309, NM Capitol
Major pro-life bills to be heard Thursday, March 2, 2017,1:30 PM at NM Capitol. Plan on attending the public hearings for these bills this Thursday and contacting the committee members below to support these common sense, humane measures. HB 37, Infant Born Alive Protection Act: Currently, infants who survive late-term abortions at 24 weeks and beyond in New Mexico are left to die or without basic care like a warm blanket. HB 37 would require infants who survive abortions are given palliative (comfort) care or medical care, if necessary. According to the CDC, there are over 500 cases of infants surviving abortions across the country. The UNM chief abortionist, Dr. Eve Espey admits "OB-GYNs do not ressussitate neonates" showing signs of life after late-term abortions at UNM Hospital.
HB 221 Parental Notification of Abortion: New Mexico parents have no rights when it comes to minors obtaining abortions. There are no parental consent or notification laws on abortion, however a minor must obtain parental consent to take an aspirin in school. HB 221 would require a minors parent or guardian to be notified 48 hours before their daughter obtains an abortion. 37 states require parental involvement in a minor’s abortion.
HB 220, Late Term Abortion Ban (House version): Abortion is legal up to the day of birth in NM - for ANY reason. New Mexico has the highest rate of late-term abortions in the nation. Late- term abortion is dangerous for women, inhumane and involves excruciating pain for infants. After 24 weeks, an infant in utero is given an intra cardiac injection-- a process deemed inhumane and cruel for exterminating animals by NM statute.
