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.

  1. Outlaw Preacher

    He is just another wolf in sheep’s clothing. Abortion at 15 weeks is just as much murder as an abortion at 26 weeks. He is a middle of the road weakling. He would certainly be an upgrade over MLG but this whole lesser of two evils decision at the ballot box is getting old. I may not vote for him.

    1. I may not agree with everything Mark Ronchetti says, but will vote for him. If we don’t support him, we guarantee MLG a second term.

      1. I really believe Ronchetti was “selected” because he absolutely can’t beat MLG. It would be great if all conservatives supported Karen Bedonie. She is awesome!

        1. Yep. Really considering leaving the Republican party after reading this. Karen has had my vote since she started campaigning. Now I understand more so why she left the Republican party.

  2. Ronchettii is the boring vanilla flavor of the month. Can’t get too excited about this middle of the road RINO. He just doesn’t excite the base. Sad.

  3. What took Ronchetti so long to break his silence? Did his position have to be poll tested for safety first? Typical politician. Sad.

  4. You whiners need to get over it. New Mexico will never be a red state, conservative stronghold in our lifetimes.

    So, you are telling us that you would allow evil MLG to become re-elected because you disagree with a moderate alternative?

    Frankly, I do not want blood on my hands to help re-elect any politician such as MLG that supports murdering the unborn right up to birth.

  5. Do we even know if the primary was without issues. They used the Dominion machines. Otero County was strong-armed into a certification (reluctant). This really sucks.

  6. Free helicopter rides

    Torrance county commissioners literally said they were being forced to certify. It’s on video. We don’t know what the leverage was that was used against them, but leverage was absolutely used against them.

  7. Ronchetti said he was pro life all during the primaries but he’s not. He’s a Mitch McConnell Rhino. We have no choice if we want to get MLG out. So maybe he will look at the medical science that proves the humanity of the unborn and abortion is not acceptable in any situation. There is not such thing as “rare” abortions. He must be educated and convinced about the truth of the militant abortion cult who want to expand abortion and New Mexico is a target now more than ever. Let’s bombard him with calls, emails, texts, whatever to help him change his cowardly stance. A real pro lifer says that abortion should be totally outlawed and we should love life and build a culture of life. This is a war on humanity. God help us.
