By overturning Roe v. Wade, a law that stood for nearly 50 years, the Supreme Court took away our constitutional right to control our own bodies. While we in New Mexico are lucky to have a governor and legislature that respect the rights of women to make their own healthcare choices, we cannot take for granted that this will always be the case. Therefore, our highest priority today is to codify these rights, including the right to contraceptives.
What We Are Doing
This year, in partnership with many other groups and individuals, we are closely monitoring the availability of mifepristone and working to ensure access of this critically important medication to those living in states that limit reproductive rights.
