Since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the nearly 50-year-old ruling that forced abortion on America, restrictions on the practice have been falling into place. More than 40 clinics have closed so far, but some are looking to reopen in New Mexico, which has been called the late-term abortion capital of the country.
"Reproductive Services in San Antonio is moving to Albuquerque, New Mexico," reports Mark Lee Dickson, founder of Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn. "Whole Woman's Health, they are actually moving to Southeast New Mexico, possibly Hobbs, New Mexico."
Las Cruces, which is near the Texas border, is also gaining an abortion clinic. So for community leaders' consideration, Dickson's attorneys are drafting ordinances that ban abortion clinics.
"We know that [for] the abortion industry, it's not about the largest cities around," the pro-lifer notes. "They will prey on the small and vulnerable cities in our states as well."
Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn is willing to work with cities throughout the country to help them develop ordinances that ban abortions. Otero County, New Mexico has already passed such a resolution, and though it does not have the force of law, Dickson says it does signal that abortion will not be appreciated there.
