New Mexico Gov. Michelle Grisham marked the Advent of Christ’s birth Tuesday by celebrating her work to expand the killing of unborn babies in abortions in her state.
Life News reports:
Grisham, who professes to be Catholic, has been counting the 12 days leading up to Christmas with social media posts about her political achievements.
On Tuesday, the second day of her “12 Days of Delivering for New Mexicans” campaign, she celebrated how New Mexico repealed its 1969 abortion ban earlier this year. As a result, aborting unborn babies through all nine months of pregnancy will remain legal there even if Roe v. Wade is overturned.
“Standing up for women’s rights has never been more important. I am proud that under my leadership, New Mexico was one of the few states to advance access to reproductive health care and abortion in 2021,” the Democrat governor wrote.
Elisa Martinez, executive director of the New Mexico Alliance for Life, called out the governor’s hypocrisy for using the birth of a child to celebrate legalizing the killing of other unborn babies in abortions up to birth.
“It’s sad that Governor Grisham chose to conflate her abortion up-to-birth radicalism as ‘standing up for women,’ when she ignores women who are injured during unsafe and unregulated abortions in New Mexico,” Martinez said. “It’s especially sad she’s using the ’12 Days of Christmas,’ which commemorates the birth of Christ, to celebrate full-term abortions.”
