Texas Abortion Laws Drive Women to New Mexico Clinics

March 23, 2016

(Christian Science Monitor) – Fewer residents are getting abortions in New Mexico, yet the number of abortions in the state has increased in recent years. Driven by the restrictions placed on abortion clinics, Texas women are flocking to New Mexico to access the procedure, according to a state Department of Health data. Nearly 20 percent of the 4,500 abortions performed in New Mexico in 2014 involved women from out of state.
