Democrat Rep. Melanie Stansbury thinks ‘LGBTQ men’ can get abortions

On Saturday, Democrat U.S. Rep. Melanie Stansbury of New Mexico’s First Congressional District shared photos on social media of a protest she attended at Tiguex Park in Albuquerque. The protest was against the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the archaic 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion on demand in the United States. The Court ruled that it was up to individual states to determine their abortion laws.

Stansbury shared photos of her speaking on a stage where a banner reading “Stand With Black Women” is displayed, along with other pro-abortion sentiments.

In the post, she wrote, “Our bodies. Our choice. Thank you to everyone who showed up to fight for reproductive rights! It’s time to get loud. Get organized. And get out the vote!”

One person responded to her tweet, “LGBTQ Men Get Abortion [Too].”

The far-left congresswoman responded with a “100%” emoji, showing agreement with the sentiment that “men” can have abortions despite many of the groups in the “LGBTQ” acronym not biologically being able to bear children, much less abort them.

One person responded to Stansbury with, “Gay men? Nope. Lesbians? Nope. Bi’s? 50% less. Trans? I guess. Q? Whatever the hell that is.”

Another responded with “Party of science” and two laughing emojis. 

It appears Stansbury, who campaigned on supporting science, is joining other conspiracy theorists in their claims that defy science.

In 1973 when Roe v. Wade was decided, ultrasounds were not widely used until after the landmark Supreme Court opinion, while modern technology has only further affirmed the humanity of the baby in the womb. 

Therefore, Stansbury’s fervent support for Roe and the pro-abortion propaganda claiming non-biological women can have abortions further adds to her non-science views. 

Angry pro-aborts protest Dobbs opinion despite NM having unlimited abortion

On Friday night, abortion supporters gathered in Albuquerque at Tiguex Park to protest the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned both the pro-abortion Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey decisions from 1973 and 1992, respectively. 

Joining in the protest included scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, far-left U.S. Rep. Melanie Stansbury, Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver, and other pro-abortion state lawmakers — all Democrats.

Lujan Grisham promised the crowd of pro-aborts, “we’re going to do more in the 60-day session. We’re going to continue to expand and protect access.” That is if the Governor is reelected and Democrats keep control of the New Mexico House of Representatives, both being up for grabs in the November General Election.

According to one person who was “incognito” attending the pro-abortion protest, signs, and statements from the crowd included many vulgar, misandristic sentiments.

“Regulate your d**k” said one attendee. Another father of three had a t-shirt reading, “Satanic Motherf**ker.

Far-left state Sen. Antoinette Sedillo-Lopez (D-Bernalillo) claimed while speaking, “Trump was selected by the electoral college,” spreading election conspiracy theories.

Another speaker yelled, “F**k the United States government,” according to one attendee.

On the front page of the Albuquerque Journal’s website with the paper’s article about the event features attendees holding uncensored “F**k Thomas” signs, referring to the pro-life Supreme Court Justice, Clarence Thomas. 

The radical pro-abortion protest was co-hosted by the Democrat Party of New Mexico, the Party for Socialism and Liberation, the ACLU, and Planned Parenthood, among others.

In 2021, pro-abortion Democrats rammed through S.B. 10, which legalized abortion up to birth in New Mexico by stripping all protections for women, babies, and medical professionals, making the state the most hostile to the unborn and to pro-life medical professionals.

Unless New Mexicans elect pro-life leaders to the Roundhouse and the Governor’s Mansion in November, more pro-abortion extremism can be expected.

Socialists, pro-abortion groups protesting in ABQ against Roe reversal

On Friday evening, abortion supporters are planning to gather at 6:00 p.m. at Tiguex Park in Albuquerque to protest the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned the 1973 pro-abortion Roe v. Wade decision.

It will involve radical groups including Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), ProgressNow New Mexico, the Democrat Party of New Mexico, the Party for Socialism and Liberation, among others.

Democrat Albuquerque City Councilor Tammy Fiebelkorn shared Planned Parenthood’s post about the protest, writing, “Please join me tonight at Tiguex.”

​​

ProgressNow New Mexico shared a vulgar threat of potential violence to obtain abortions from a radical pro-abortion group “Indigenous Women Rising,” which read, “WE WILL NOT F***IN STOP.” 

The Democrat Party of New Mexico also shared the protest information. If the protest gets violent, the consequences will directly be a result of the involvement of the Democrat Party.

It is also being promoted by the Party for Socialism and Liberation:

Ronchetti breaks his silence on U.S. Supreme Court abortion decision

On Friday, the Republican nominee for governor Mark Ronchetti broke his silence on the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization ruling, which overturned the pro-abortion Roe v. Wade.

He released the following statement:

Today’s Court ruling paves the way for a measured dialogue on the issue of abortion that will save lives and should result in policies that are more mainstream and reflect our shared values.

The Governor has taken an extreme position on abortion, out of step with most New Mexicans, in believing that abortion should be unrestricted – all the way up to the moment a child is born. This has made New Mexico the late-term abortion capital of North America and does not reflect our values.

While I am pro-life, governors cannot act alone and any changes to our laws will require collaboration and agreement with the legislature. As Governor, I would seek a middle ground with our legislature that ends the practice of late-term and partial-birth abortion that the current Governor supports. I believe permitting abortion up to 15 weeks and in cases involving rape, incest, and when a mother’s life is at risk is a very reasonable position that most in New Mexico will support regardless of party affiliation. This will end the barbaric practice of late-term abortions. I will also strongly support policies that provide support to expectant mothers and their unborn children.

He added:

I am pro-life and believe abortion should be rare. Governor Lujan-Grisham supports abortion up to the very moment a child is born. Her position is extreme and does not reflect our values. It’s time to end the barbaric practice of late-term abortion in New Mexico.

Pro-abortion Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham wrote following the statement, “Today, a new generation of women will be forced to face a future where they cannot seek safe, legal abortions. We have long feared this moment and I’m going to continue to fight like hell to ensure every New Mexico woman has access to reproductive health care.” 

The governor added in another statement from her official gubernatorial account that she thinks women will now be “second-class citizens” because they don’t have the right to kill their babies protected on a national level.

As pro-lifers rejoice Roe’s fall, MLG promises to ‘fight like hell’ for abortions

On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the 1973 decision Roe v. Wade and the 1992 decision Planned Parenthood v. Casey were overturned in a shocking 5-4 decision.

Following the game-changing ruling, New Mexicans responded to the news.

Piñon Post editor and GOP nominee for House District 51, John Block, wrote:

As a pro-lifer and as a human of morals, seeing the deadly Roe v. Wade decision overturned marks one of the most important moments in our nation’s history. From helping women find life-affirming options on the sidewalk outside of Planned Parenthood abortion centers to fighting hard to stop pro-abortion bills in our Legislature, all of our hard work has finally paid off in a tangible way.

But the fight in New Mexico has only just begun. Radical Democrats are hell-bent on killing as many precious unborn babies in our state as possible, which is why we must fight hard against their agenda of death. As the next representative for New Mexico’s House District 51, I will sponsor bills to protect life from conception to natural death, and I will continue to work tirelessly to stop anti-life bills. 

What an amazing day for the right to life in our Country, and may God continue to give us strength as we work to restore a culture of life in New Mexico.

Pro-abortion Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham wrote, “Today, a new generation of women will be forced to face a future where they cannot seek safe, legal abortions. We have long feared this moment and I’m going to continue to fight like hell to ensure every New Mexico woman has access to reproductive health care.” 

The governor added in another statement from her official gubernatorial account that she thinks women will now be “second-class citizens” because they don’t have the right to kill their babies protected on a national level.

Far-left U.S. Rep. Melanie Stansbury of New Mexico’s First  Congressional District wrote, “The extreme and dangerous decision by SCOTUS this morning sets the clock back on human rights and gender equality by decades.”

She added, “While abortion remains safe and legal in New Mexico—this decision will block people across the country from receiving care. The time for the Senate to act is now! The time to organize is now!”

Fellow far-left U.S. Rep. Teresa Leger Fernandez of New Mexico’s Third Congressional District wrote, “Abortion is SAFE AND LEGAL in New Mexico. The Supreme Court just voted to take away women’s autonomy and end Roe v. Wade. This is an unprecedented unraveling of the right to bodily privacy and choice”

She continued, “New Mexico codified abortion access in 2021 when @GovMLG signed SB-10 and removed a 1969 law that criminalized abortion. 26 states may quickly ban abortion, and 13 will implement trigger bans. New Mexico expects an influx of patients who will need this lifesaving care. We must do everything to ensure they get the care they need. Congress must codify the right to choose under law.”

Pro-life advocate Elisa Martinez wrote, “Today, a new generation of women will have the right to be born.”

“RPNM applauds this momentous ruling and the Court’s realization that we must protect the sanctity of life,” said Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Steve Pearce following the opinion. “The decision is in the best interest of America, and the high court’s Justices have fulfilled their duty to protect the lives of the unborn and to abolish the horrors of abortion. Abortion is wrong on moral grounds, and I and everyone who stand for life am pleased at the outcome in this important ruling.”

Dems holding drag queen fundraiser for far-left candidates

On Thursday, the Democrat Party of New Mexico is holding a fundraiser for at least three far-left candidates, including U.S. Rep. Melanie Stansbury of the First District and legislative candidates Augustine Montoya (D-HD-22) and Danny Bernal, Jr. (D-HD-7).

Stansbury is running for reelection while Montoya is challenging Republican state Rep. Stefani Lord and Bernal is running for an open seat being vacated by Republican state Rep. Kelly Fajardo. 

According to the invite for the event, which was updated to reflect a significant decrease in ticket prices from $50 to $25, the Democrats are hosting a “drag show” with Bunnie Benton Cruse, a former prostitute and failed candidate for state House District 28 vacated by Stansbury when she ran for Congress. The seat was ultimately filled by far-left ballot harvester Pamelya Herndon, a Democrat Party activist.

According to a 2021 report from the New Mexico Political Report, Cruse “has a conviction for sex work, which she is open about. She said that when she was young, another trans person told her there were three paths available to her in life: bartending, hair dressing or sex work.” 

The Piñon Post previously reported:

Cruse made headlines in 2019 when a public, taxpayer-funded library hosted a “Drag Queen Story Time” event where he and another drag queen read to young children. 

According to Cruse’s Facebook page at the time, he worked as a “Jello Shot Girl” at the gay bar Effex Albuquerque, and as the “Head Stripper” at “Shake N Bake.”

Montoya and Bernal are both far-left extremists, with support for radical “environmental” policies, unlimited abortions, and socialized school programs. The event with the far-left congresswoman and the former sex worker reaffirms their radical stances on issues across the board.

NM governor’s race changes from ‘Leans Democrat’ to ‘Toss Up’

On Wednesday, it was revealed that New Mexico’s gubernatorial race has been shifted from a “Lean Democrat” to a “Toss Up,” according to those following the race.

This is a big deal for New Mexico, as Republicans have a good shot of reclaiming the governor’s mansion in November amid dissatisfaction with Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, who has been involved in a myriad of scandals throughout her short but destructive tenure. 

Republicans have nominated former television weatherman Mark Ronchetti, while Libertarians have nominated businesswoman Karen Bedonie to challenge Lujan Grisham.

According to the most recent poll commissioned by the leftist New Mexico Political Report, Ronchetti only trails Lujan Grisham by three points, while Bedonie holds 9% of the vote share. 

An internal poll from the Ronchetti campaign shows the Republican beating Lujan Grisham by one point, making the race for the governorship a competitive one.

A Republican-affiliated group began running a television advertisement Wednesday highlighting the Governor’s misuse of taxpayer funds to buy $200/lb Wagyu beef steaks, booze, and other personal items. 

The Governor also previously settled with a former staffer for $150,000 after the man accused her of pouring water over his crotch and then grabbing his genitals. 

The best Democrats have against Ronchetti is that he is a “weatherman,” claiming he has “no experience.” 

Republicans are largely ignoring Democrats’ attacks, as they likely see a conservative being far better than a scandal-ridden political insider. 

Soros-backed candidates Toulouse Oliver, Torrez team up to fundraise

George Soros-funded Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver, who is running for reelection, and Bernalillo County-area District Attorney Raúl Torrez, who is running for attorney general, are teaming up to fundraise off of claims that Republicans are “attacking” so-called “democracy” by asking questions about election fraud. 

In an email, Torrez, on behalf of the Toulouse Oliver campaign, attacked the Otero County Commission, which was dragged through court by the Secretary of State after it voted to not certify the results of the 2022 Primary Election. The lawsuit was immediately acted upon by the state Supreme Court, which ordered that the Commission must certify the results. The County reluctantly did on Friday.

Torrez claimed, “I applaud Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver’s quick action to bring this issue before the NM Supreme Court, who immediately ordered the commission to comply with their duty to certify these results. And this last Saturday, I traveled to the Otero County Administration Building myself to meet with voters, hear their concerns, and reiterate our shared commitment to upholding the rule of law in order to protect our voters and defend our democracy.” Note: The United States is a constitutional republic — not a “democracy”

Torrez did, indeed visit Alamogordo, where he is pictured talking with Democrats, including Otero County Democrat Party chair Jeff Swanson, who has branded Republicans as “seditious confederates.”

Swanson can be seen on the right taking a photograph.

He continued, “We absolutely must put a stop to these dangerous antics and brinkmanship that threaten and undermine our democratic process, and we must be willing to hold individuals accountable and send a clear message — we will not permit anyone, particularly elected officials who abuse their power, to threaten our election process.”

He then asked for a joint contribution to him and Toulouse Oliver, claiming the funds would help continue “protecting our democracy” by electing the far-left Democrats.

A new poll by Fox News shows that despite all the talk by Democrats of “protecting democracy,” Republicans actually lead in that category by one percentage point.
Toulouse Oliver faces off against Republican Audrey Trujillo, while Torrez will go up against Republican Jeremy Gay in the November 8 election. Currently, Trujillo and Gay only trail the two democrats by seven percent, respectively, in the latest New Mexico Political Report poll.

Poll shows GOP trailing Dems by single digits in AG, SOS races

On Tuesday, a leftist poll commissioned by the leftist New Mexico Political Report (NMPR), which is affiliated with the George Soros-funded ProgressNow New Mexico, revealed Republicans are in striking distance of clinching the attorney general and the secretary of state positions in November.

The poll, which is expected to have oversampled Libertarians, showed Democrat Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver was leading Republican challenger Audrey Trujillo by only seven points. Toulouse Oliver had 41% to Trujillo’s 34%, while nine percent were voting for Libertarian Mayna Myers, and 16% were undecided.

NMPR reported:

Toulouse Oliver has a large lead among women, 46 percent to 28 percent over Trujillo and 8 percent for Myers. Trujillo, meanwhile, slightly leads among men, 39 percent to 36 percent with 10 percent backing Myers.

Toulouse Oliver also leads among Hispanic or Latino voters, 60 percent of whom said they support the Democrat compared to 20 percent for Trujillo and 7 percent for Myers. Among white voters, 45 percent back Trujillo, 31 percent Toulouse Oliver and 9 percent Myers. Among other ethnicities, 27 percent back Toulouse Oliver, 21 percent back Myers and 20 percent back Trujillo.

In the attorney general’s race, Democrat Raúl Torrez leads Republican Jeremy Gay by seven points as well. Torrez got 44% while Gay got 37%. 

According to NMPR:

Similarly, the Democrat Torrez leads in the Attorney General’s race among women 53 percent to Gay’s 28 percent, while Gay leads among men, 46 percent to 35 percent.

Torrez has a large lead among Hispanic or Latino voters, with 65 percent saying they would vote for him, compared to 22 percent for Gay. Among white voters, 48 percent support Gay and 32 percent support Torrez. When it comes to other ethnicities, 37 percent back Torrez and 28 percent support Gay.

642 New Mexicans were polled between June 13 and 14. The poll, conducted by Public Policy Polling (an A- rating on FiveThirtyEight that skews 0.9% toward Democrats) had a margin of error of 3.9 percent.

Leftist poll shows MLG is in big trouble as conservatives pick apart her record

According to a poll commissioned by the leftist New Mexico Political Report (NMPR), which is affiliated with the George Soros-funded ProgressNow New Mexico, Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham is in serious trouble.

The poll shows Lujan Grisham barely leading with 45%. Republican gubernatorial nominee Mark Ronchetti trails with 42%, while 9% said they are voting for Libertarian Karen Bedonie. Bedonie was formerly running for governor as a Republican but switched her party affiliation. She won the Libertarian primary against write-in candidate Ginger Grider. 

According to NMPR, the poll is within the margin of error for Lujan Grisham — showing dangerous territory for the vulnerable Democrat. It was done by Public Policy Polling, which is rated an A- on FiveThirtyEight and skews Democrat by 0.9 percentage points.

“Lujan Grisham holds a large lead among those who voted for Biden in 2020, 86 percent to 6 percent, with 4 percent saying they would vote for Bedonie. Ronchetti, meanwhile, leads among Trump voters 88 percent to 8 percent for Bedonie and 1 percent for Lujan Grisham,” wrote NMPR.

A recent internal poll from the Ronchetti campaign showed that Lujan Grisham is trailing him by one point, but it did not specify if respondents voting for Bedonie were factored in.

The seat is one that is in the pick-up column for Republicans. The Republican Governors Association (RGA)-affiliated “Get Families Back to Work” group has already booked hundreds of thousands in television airtime targeting Lujan Grisham on multiple scandals, including the misuse of her discretionary fund to buy luxury $200/lb Wagyu beef steaks, alcohol (which is prohibited), and other unscrupulous goods, such as dry cleaning and products for her pet.

The Albuquerque Journal reported that the RGA was spending around $179,000 so far this cycle in New Mexico.
