Albuquerque, NM - Protest ABQ is an Albuquerque effort made up of local residents, including families, who are committed to protesting and exposing those who support, condone or profit from the New Mexico abortion cartel. To understand why Protest ABQ is currently focusing attention on self-professed pro-life Gov. Susana Martinez (R), one needs to understand two key points.

First, New Mexico is known as the Abortion Capital of the Southwest, acting as a magnet for abortionists who cannot or will not comply with the abortion laws of other states. Abortion facilities in New Mexico are totally unregulated and never inspected or held to any kind of medical standard.

Albuquerque, in particular, is considered the Late-term Abortion Capital of the entire country, with unrestricted abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy. At Southwestern Women's Options, babies are aborted that are in some cases just days away from birth.

Secondly, Susana Martinez was elected as governor in part due to her stated pro-life position. She is currently running for re-election. It is no secret that she is using her status as governor and her conservative, pro-life credentials to attain national political aspirations and has been frequently mentioned as a possible Vice-Presidential candidate on the Republican Party ticket in 2016.
