The big New Mexico connection to the landmark Dobbs Supreme Court case

Last Friday, pro-lifers rejoiced as the archaic 49-year-old Roe v. Wade decision was tossed in the trash heap of history. Roe legalized abortion on demand in America. The Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case that toppled it now allows the abortion issue to go back to each individual state. 

But one of the key players in the Dobbs case is a big fish in the legal field, Erin Morrow Hawley, the wife of U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO). 

According to Axios, “As senior counsel to the appellate team at Christian legal advocacy group Alliance Defending Freedom, Erin Morrow Hawley helped the state of Mississippi draft merits and reply briefs for Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.”

Erin Hawley has deep roots in New Mexico. According to The Washington Post, “Erin Hawley, the daughter of fifth-generation New Mexico ranchers, also is comfortable speaking beneath slate-gray-seeping Midwestern skies, in front of enormous bins of rice, to a small but grateful gathering of farmers.”

Erin Hawley grew up near the small village of Des Moines in Union County. The northeast New Mexico county touches both Oklahoma and Texas to its east. Hawley is the eldest and has two sisters named Maggie and Rori.

Both Hawleys clerked for U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Roberts and both attended Yale Law School. Formerly, Erin Hawley received her bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from Texas A&M University.

After the landmark Dobbs decision, which Erin Hawley was integral in getting across the finish line, she wrote, “I’m so pleased it’s a 6-3 decision.” She added, “The Supreme Court has taken the shackles of Roe off of states.”

Now that Dobbs has sent the abortion question back to the states, New Mexico’s laws remain unchanged. In 2021, New Mexico Democrats and one ex-Republican, state Rep. Phelps Anderson (I-Roswell), rammed through an abortion up-to-birth bill that flatly stripped all protections for babies, mothers, and medical professionals. Abortionists in New Mexico are now looking to capitalize on Roe’s reversal by taking in women from neighboring states to kill their babies through abortions in New Mexico.

In November, pro-life Republicans have a shot at taking back the Governor’s Mansion and the state House of Representatives to stop the pro-abortion agenda of the Democrat Party. If they succeed, it could be possible to pass a limit on abortions in the state.

  1. While people are getting giddy about the overturning of roe vs Wade , the Supreme Court did nothing unusual. Constitutionally the federal government should have never enacted it in the first place. The constitution states that the federal government has ONLY the power conferred upon it by the states. Therefore ie Texas law is different than NM law on abortion. Sadly because of the low character of our so called representatives, NM is getting known as a bastion of liberal marxism and our “last in everything good “ reputation will continue unless we monitor elections and get better people in office that care about the public not the “party “ ( the communist party).

  2. If we do not get a new Governor I am moving to a state that does not Murder babies. Thank God the justices love the constitution.
