Respect NM Women


strong_families.jpgRespect New Mexico Women
is a movement of women, families, faith leaders, medical providers, and community-based organizations united in support of New Mexico women and their reproductive health decisions.

We believe:

  • That decisions about abortion and reproductive health are deeply personal and belong between a woman and her doctor.
  • That government interference in these private medical decisions is unacceptable.
  • That a woman should feel supported in her decision to seek a safe and legal abortion.

We are here to:

  • Step up. It is our lives, our families, and our communities that are hurt by attempts to block access to safe and legal abortion in New Mexico. 
  • Speak out. We are a supportive community where people can talk about abortion without fear of shame or stigma.
  • Stand strong. We oppose any attempt to disrespect women by interfering in private decisions about abortion.
