SCOTUS repeal of Roe V Wade = NM reproductive health orgs and State legislators respond

June 25, 2022

After the June 24, 2022 U.S. Supreme Court decision (reversing Roe v Wade), removed the constitutional protections of reproductive rights, leaving laws on such rights to each state, New Mexico Reproductive Health and Justice Organizations and Legislators responded to the SCOTUS decision.

A coalition of New Mexico reproductive health and justice organizations that advocated for passage of the Respect New Mexico Women and Families Act (also known as SB10, the abortion ban repeal) hosted a press conference regarding the SCOTUS decision on Dobbs v. Jackson, and gave context to how this ruling will affect the New Mexico landscape. They were joined by reproductive healthcare champions in the New Mexico House and Senate.

Participating organizations included:

ACLU New Mexico
Bold Futures
Indigenous Life Ways (Executive Director Krystal Curley, Diné)
Forward Together
Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains
ProgressNow New Mexico
Tewa Women United
Reproductive health champions in the NM House and Senate
