Edgewood to vote on pro-life sanctuary ordinance Tuesday

The Town of Edgewood is considering passing an ordinance making the municipality a sanctuary for the unborn. 

The Town Commission already held one preliminary meeting on April 4, 2023, to talk about it. According to reports from that meeting, “While the workshop was scheduled to begin at 6:30 PM, several trolls chose to interrupt the Zoom call – echoing racial slurs, broadcasting porn, and showing male genitalia. These interferences caused the meeting to start over an hour late.”

A planning meeting is scheduled for Sunday night ahead of the vote scheduled for Tuesday.

Mark Lee Dickson, the founder of Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn, will be in attendance at the Sunday planning meeting held by organizers at 6:00 p.m. 

The group of pro-lifers will meet at Legacy Church’s East Mountain campus located at 379 NM-344 in Edgewood.

The official commission meeting to vote on the ordinance will be held on Tuesday, April 25, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. and be streamed via the Town’s Facebook page found here. The address for the Townhall of Edgewood Commission Chambers is 171A, State Rd. 344.

According to the agenda posted on the Town of Edgewood’s website for the Tuesday meeting, the proposed Ordinance 2023-002 would entail “Requiring Abortion Providers in the Town of Edgewood, New Mexico to Comply with Federal Law,” brought forward by Commissioner Sterling Donner of the Fifth District.

Edgewood’s potential move toward sanctuary status comes amid news of the City of Eunice filing a lawsuit against Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and state Attorney General Raúl Torrez to uphold its similar ordinance that mandates the state follow the federal Comstock Act, which prohibits the transfer of obscene materials between state lines, effectively outlawing abortion pills.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday ruled that a lower court must rule on an abortion pill case before the Court would prohibit the sale of the product nationwide. The case is set to be heard in early May. 

To learn more about the Tuesday meeting, the Town of Edgewood’s agenda is posted here on its official website.

    Blessings upon you Edgewood; know that many of us here in NM are praying for your safety, wisdom in this endeavor & most of all the success in this ordinance. I’m so proud of the community for having the backbone to stand for what’s right in the sight of decent Americans & God’s love for what’s right.

  2. Good luck folks of Edgewood. I do not understand adults what would block a meeting with crude comments and pics. I guess when you do not have a valid point to kill babies that is all you have left. Your families should be proud that you have no scruples or intelligence. I am sure God has a special place in hell for you. (am am not a christian and do believe what ever your version of god is, when I state God.
