New Mexico lawmakers consider 2 anti-abortion bills


SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – The battle over abortion in New Mexico is being resurrected this session. There are two anti-abortion bills before lawmakers.

Another bill before lawmakers would require anyone 18-years or younger seeking an abortion to get parental approval.
