THE NEW MEXICO COALITION FOR CHOICE
Invites You To Celebrate 44 Years of Safe and Legal Abortion
February 7, 2017
An Event to Honor Roe v. Wade
Where: The Rotunda at the Roundhouse (411 State Capitol, Santa Fe, NM 87501)
When: Tuesday, February 7, 2017
Time: 9:30 to 11:00 A.M.
44 years ago, abortion became legal in the United States. Since then, hundreds of restrictions on the safe procedure have been proposed and enacted across the country, making it impossible for women and families to access this constitutional right. Join us to keep this personal decision between a woman and her doctor, without government interference this legislative session.
Now more than ever we need to protect reproductive rights. In the face of the violent attacks and false allegations against Planned Parenthood and other clinics, we need to stand up against hateful rhetoric and extreme tactics that escalate violence against our clinics.
Please join us as we celebrate Roe v. Wade and continue to protect access to reproductive health services for women in New Mexico. You will:
Meet with community leaders
Hear a program of great speakers
Learn what you can do this legislative session and beyond
Celebrate Roe v. Wade. Keep abortion safe and legal in New Mexico.
