House Bill 206, introduced by Representative Brown, would make any woman seeking an abortion after an instance of rape or incest a third degree felon. Under the guise of the security for women, NM HB 206 could result in a prison sentence of up to three years and a $5,000 fine in addition to carrying the fetus to term after the incident.
Rep. Brown has the power to withdraw this outrageous and insulting bill against women. Please sign and share this petition so that she must.
