Defeat of Albuquerque’s 20-Week Abortion Ban

Results from Tuesday’s vote on Albuquerque’s “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Ordinance” indicate that the measure failed to pass. Many pro-life advocates worked around the clock for the past weeks and months promoting the ordinance, and while they express disappointment, they also express that they are not discouraged, nor should they be.

According to LLDF’s President Dana Cody, “The efforts in Albuquerque have educated a city, a state, and a nation on the horrors of late-term abortion. While outspent by a significant ratio, pro-life advocates got their message across. LLDF commends the efforts that were made to protect the unborn in Albuquerque.”
