Gov. statement on Hobbs City Commission vote

Nov 7, 2022 | Press Releases

SANTA FE – Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Monday issued a statement following the Hobbs City Commission vote to approve a resolution that seeks to criminalize aspects of providing essential reproductive health care, including medication abortion pills:

“This resolution, authored by out-of-state extremists working to further their special interest agenda, is a clear affront to the rights and personal autonomy of every woman in Hobbs and southeastern New Mexico, and we will not stand for it. Reproductive health care is legal and protected in every corner of our state. Providers delivering health care have every right to establish a practice, and all women have the right to access medication abortion services, no matter where in New Mexico they call home.”
