Feb 11, 2021 | Press Releases

SANTA FE – Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Thursday issued the following statement upon the state Senate passage of Senate Bill 10, which will repeal a 1969 state statute criminalizing abortion:

“This is a simple bill. And it is powerful in its simplicity. It affirms a woman’s self-evident autonomy over her own body. And it ensures no health care provider in our state may be criminalized for providing health care. I thank and applaud the women senators who spoke in such personal terms in their supportive testimony today. This was a moment for common-sense leadership and I am grateful to the lawmakers and advocates who have met that moment.”


The Office of Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham is located on the fourth floor of the New Mexico State Capitol in Room 400.
