NOW Celebrates Albuquerque Voters for Defending a Woman’s Right to Choose

New Mexico voters reject municipal 20-week abortion ban

WASHINGTON, D.C.—(ENEWSPF)—November 20, 2013. The National Organization for Women (NOW) celebrates the voters of Albuquerque for rejecting a ban on abortions past 20 weeks. The proposed ban would have been unprecedented, but voters kept Albuquerque from being the first municipality to explicitly limit women’s access to abortion care in this way.

We congratulate the numerous NOW leaders and activists who, together with their coalition allies in Respect ABQ Women, knocked on doors, made phone calls and helped voters get to the polls yesterday. Voters rejected this radical ballot measure because they know abortion clinics are a lifeline for thousands of women.

NOW will continue to fight to keep clinics open in communities and states around the country.
