We Did It!

On November 19, 2013 the Southwest Women’s Law Center and the rest of the New Mexico Coalition for Choice  Respect Albuquerque Women defeated the anti-choice  measure on the Albuquerque ballot. This win is a testimony to the strength of local organizations that have been building a strong movement for justice in New Mexico for many years.  We are proud that this campaign provided accurate information and acknowledged the complexity of decision-making around abortion.  We reminded voters that these decisions should be in the hands of women in consultation with their family, their doctor and their faith.
