While the Rio Grande Foundation studiously avoids taking sides in the ongoing battle over abortion policy in New Mexico, it appears that in the wake of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade reversal New Mexico’s leftist politicians are going “all-in” on the issue by spending YOUR tax dollars in support of abortion.
We covered (and are considering action on) Albuquerque City Council’s $250,000 “donation” to Planned Parenthood earlier this year. Now, with a massive surplus available to her, Gov. Lujan Grisham has decided to allocate $10 million worth of capital outlay to build a state-run abortion clinic in Las Cruces. While full news stories are hard to come by at this point, numerous credible outlets have reported on it. Stay tuned for details on the latest abuse of your tax dollars….
.@GovMLG today signed an executive order that allocates $10 million to build a new clinic that would provide a "full spectrum" of reproductive health care, including #abortion, in Dona Ana County. "The work that we are doing saves women's lives," the governor said. #nmpol
