ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The impact of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade has New Mexico and every other state figuring out if or how it will address abortion in the near future. While abortion remains legal in New Mexico, there is a good chance the state could end up in further legal battles down the road, based on differences in the laws of neighboring states.

Where might those legal challenges arise? Could New Mexico’s government, doctors or residents face lawsuits? Could the state face repercussions for how it acknowledges or treats enforcement of other state’s abortion laws? KRQE News 13’s Gabrielle Burkhart and Chris McKee are taking a closer look at those questions on this week’s episode of the New Mexico News Podcast.

An Albuquerque attorney specializing in employment and labor law, Deena Buchanan joins the conversation this week. Buchanan offers some perspective on what court room battle lines she thinks New Mexico may face in the years to come, based on emerging abortion laws and practices.
