On Tuesday, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham sent out a message to her campaign email list touting her signing of the extreme abortion up-to-birth and infanticide S.B. 10. She said she was “honored” to affix her name to the new law.
She claimed it was an “important piece of legislation” and that its passage meant “everyone in New Mexico, no matter their gender, has the right to autonomy over their own body,” implying that men also can give birth?
She also thanked all the pro-abortion groups that spread extreme propaganda ultimately leading to the bill’s passage. She wrote, “I’m so grateful to all the community advocates, leaders and organizations from across New Mexico who have tirelessly worked to get this done.”

Friend, I wanted to share an update on an important piece of legislation that I just signed into law: Senate Bill 10.
SB10 repeals decades-old, unenforceable laws that criminalized doctors for providing abortion care in New Mexico. It’s a simple bill – getting outdated laws off the books – but it’s the message this sends that’s really profound.
By passing this bill, the legislature affirmed loud and clear that everyone in New Mexico, no matter their gender, has the right to autonomy over their own body. And it tells health care providers that they’ll never be punished for doing what’s right for their patients.
I’m so grateful to all the community advocates, leaders and organizations from across New Mexico who have tirelessly worked to get this done. Every New Mexican should be able to exercise their full reproductive rights: This bill’s passage underscores that powerful truth, and I was truly honored to have signed it into law.
This legislation is just one piece of our fight to build a brighter future for New Mexico. Thank you for looking toward that brighter future alongside me. There’s so much we can achieve together.
Michelle Lujan Grisham
