    NM Voters Reject Proposal to Ban Late-Term Abortions in Albuquerque

    (ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.) — The majority of residents in Albuquerque, N.M., are not for banning late-term abortions, election results show. Voters took to the polls for a municipal election on Tuesday, and by a vote of 55 percent to 45 percent, voted against a proposal that would not allow abortions after 20 weeks. The proposed ban was initiated by pro-life groups, which gathered thousands of signatures by petition to put the issue on the ballot.  If it had passed, Albuquerque would have become the first city in the U.S. to impose restrictions on the procedure.

Among those who lost their homes in the devastating tornado were coaches and players. Senior… Read more
