New Mexico Residents to Vote on “Pain Capable Unborn Child” Ordinance on Nov. 19 | (Nov. 8): “Every innocent life deserves to be protected,” said Senior Counsel Michael J. Norton. “This ordinance will protect children in the womb who experience horrific pain during a late-term abortion. It also protects mothers from the increased risk of physical harm and potentially devastating psychological consequences that come with late-term abortions.” . . . The Alliance Defending Freedom letter explains, “Whether one views an unborn child as a ‘life or potential life…,’ allowing abortions to unnecessarily impose substantial pain on an unborn child ‘is incompatible with the concept of human dignity and has no place in civilized society.’” . . . “Numerous states have decided to limit non-emergency abortions beyond 20 weeks to protect the health of mothers and ensure that their babies are free from excruciating pain,” added Senior Counsel Steven H. Aden. “Albuquerque voters can be confident that this proposed ordinance is both medically and legally sound.”
