As one of New Mexico’s neighboring states, Oklahoma, passed a bill this week to ban abortions of babies after 15 weeks gestation, scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham took to social media to celebrate New Mexico’s abortion up-to-birth and infanticide law that allows the killing of full-term babies without exceptions.
The embattled governor wrote, “As states around New Mexico continue their assault on reproductive health care, the action we’ve taken to protect and expand abortion access is more important than ever.”
Lujan Grisham’s definition of “reproductive health care” is the opposite of abortion because killing a baby is the antithesis of health care. The American Heritage® Medical Dictionary lists “health care” as “The prevention, treatment, and management of illness and the preservation of mental and physical well-being through the services offered by the medical and allied health professions.” Killing is not in the scope of what is considered health care.
Furthermore, “reproduction” is defined as the “production of offspring by a sexual or asexual process.” Killing a child created through this reproductive process is exactly the opposite. Therefore, the term “reproductive health care” to refer to abortion is an oxymoron.
“Access to abortion is access to health care, and that won’t change here in New Mexico,” added Lujan Grisham.
But the governor, who signed an abortion up-to-birth and infanticide bill into law last year, faces tough reelection, with many Republican contenders vowing to protect the right to life in the state of New Mexico. She cannot promise that access to killing children through abortions “won’t change here in New Mexico.” It very well could change next election, especially if New Mexicans elect a pro-life majority to the state House of Representatives.
Elisa Martinez, Republican candidate for New Mexico House District 27 wrote on Twitter, in response to Lujan Grisham, “.@GovMLG: stop celebrating unsafe & unregulated abortions up to birth. One NM clinic alone has sent over 50 women to the ER including one death!
This is NOT healthcare.”
She shared a graphic with a screenshot of Albuquerque’s Southwestern Women’s Options abortion mill, which proudly advertises abortions up to and after 32 weeks.
Republican House District 51 candidate and Piñon Post® chief John Block, said in regard to the Governor’s social media post, “MLG is a shameless baby murderer. If elected to the legislature, I will fight day and night to save babies’ lives through life-affirming legislation!”
