NM taxpayers forked over staggering amount for abortions in 2020-2021

According to New Mexico Department of Health documents obtained by the pro-life group Abortion Free New Mexico, a shocking number of taxpayer-funded abortions happened right here in New Mexico through Medicaid.

The records obtained by the group indicate, “In 2020, New Mexico Medicaid funded 3,372 abortion procedures that resulted in expenditures to abortion providers totaling $386,096.06.”

“In 2021, the numbers rose as New Mexico Medicaid funded 3,955 abortion procedures that resulted in expenditures to abortion providers totaling $421,026.90.”

The group wrote in the press release that New Mexico’s Medicaid system expended “almost $1 million tax dollars funding 7,327 abortions over the course of two years alone.”

The news comes after Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham pledged to spend $10 million in 2023 on a new abortion mill in Las Cruces to service Texas women if she wins re-election. 

Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico wrote, “Nearly $1,000,000 of our tax dollars that are already being paid out by New Mexico Medicaid over the past two years alone for 7,327 abortions should alarm us all and motivate us to act!”

“While we can’t stop New Mexico Medicaid from funding abortions, we can work to prevent Michelle Lujan Grisham’s latest attempt to force us as New Mexican citizens to pay for an abortion center that will cater to out of state women seeking to kill their children by voting pro-life. It is vital that each New Mexican of conscience is mobilized to help get pro-life candidates elected in November. Early voting is right around the corner so time is of the essence to volunteer your time, talents and treasure to the candidate of your choice who will stand for life and make sure that Lujan Grisham’s nefarious plans don’t come to fruition.”

Lujan Grisham faces tough competition from GOP nominee Mark Ronchetti, who is polling within single digits of the embattled abortion up-to-birth governor who previously signed a bill in 2021 to legalize abortion up-to-birth in the state of New Mexico by stripping away all protections for mothers, babies, and doctors.

  1. I have little faith in the voters of NM. If they had ANY Critical Thinking skills Democrats would not have been running the state for over 50 years.

    1. With the Santa Fe Ring in control New Mexico could vote 1,000,000 to 1 against the dimmoKKKraps and they would still win. With early voting, mail in ballots, ballot harvesting, ranked choice, electronic machines “not connected” to the internet and the crooked dimmoKKKraps doing the counting we’re screwed.

    2. I wish I could disagree. Such a sad statement of fact about critical thinking. At 50th in education in the nation, I don’t think this is a skill that’s ever been promoted here. Nor is strategic thinking.

  2. I agree 100% with Angus! This is nothing but state sponsored murder of the unborn. What amazes me is that so many Democrats are Catholics, yet they continue to support candidates and office holders who support abortion. I just don’t believe you can be a Catholic and a Democrat!

  3. Ronchetti is pro abortion up to 15 weeks, which accounts for 94% of all abortions. Karen Bedonie is 100% pro-life! And her support is growing every day! She has a plan to make abortion extremely hard in NM no matter what the legislature does. All she needs is 15% of the Republican vote, 15% of the Democratic vote and another 5% of all others combined to win. Vote Karen Bedonie for governor if you want to see things changed in New Mexico! The other two are just politics as usual…..

  4. Thank you for the numbers. I am being told that if I vote for Karen Bedoni that it is a vote for Michelle Wuhan Gruesome. More info would be helpful. It is a shame that the amount of money you have depends on your campaign. I have always admired Ms. Bedonie and her views.

  5. Evidently the thousands of people’s lives MLG saved does not include those aborted or who lived on reservations.

  6. Bedonie is running as a libertarian. Read their platform: open borders (no restrictions on crossing borders), pro -abortion(right to control your body), etc. I’ve heard her speak and liked her but she won’t win. Vote Bedonie and curse us to 4 more years of MLG
