Recent news from China tells of the awful conditions faced by the Uighurs, including forced abortions. Think of that: a government with the power to force a woman to have an abortion. But how different is that from a government that has the power to prohibit a woman from getting an abortion. I don’t think any government should have that power. So-called pro-life folks should think about that: a government that can prohibit abortions could someday require them. I hope New Mexico will end the law prohibiting abortions.
