Active State Supreme Court

State of New Mexico v. Board of County Commissioners for Lea County

A pair of recently proposed state abortion laws are not 'pro-choice'; they’re anti-life.


The New Mexico attorney general bypassed ordinary litigation procedures and deployed an exceptional measure, an emergency petition, when he asked the state’s high court to find a new constitutional right to abortion without the benefit of any court’s prior review or full briefing.
