I Vote Pro-Life (woman holding sign)One pro-lifer does not believe the voters in her state approve of their tax dollars funding abortions -- especially considering the staggering rate that it's occurring.

Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico tells OneNewsNow The Land of Enchantment is among the 16 states that are allowed to use state taxpayer dollars to fully fund abortion.

"Our Supreme Court ruled back in 1999 that essentially women have equal rights as men, and therefore the state should pay for their abortions," Shaver explains. "But we do believe that the taxpayers of New Mexico deserve to know just how much of their hard-earned tax dollars are being used to fund abortions."

So with a public records request, Abortion Free New Mexico has obtained the data from 2017-2019, discovering some alarming information.

"Over the three-year period, almost 6,000 abortions were paid for by taxpayers, and it cost the taxpayers almost $800,000," the pro-lifer relays.

New Mexico is a poor state that ranks number one in child poverty, which means it is a welfare state where many people rely on the government. Shaver submits that the problem that needs to be challenged is child poverty – an issue that killing preborn children does not resolve.

While New Mexico is a left-leaning state, Shaver says the voters tend to be conservative on a lot of issues, and one of them is tax money funding abortions. The current system could only begin to change if those conservative voters show up at the polls in November.
