Protecting Reproductive Rights and Freedoms

New Mexico has long valued the principles of freedom and individual rights. As extreme politicians intensify their attacks on reproductive rights, safeguarding these fundamental freedoms is more important than ever. That’s why protecting the reproductive rights and freedoms of all New Mexicans is one of Martin’s top priorities. Martin is deeply committed to ensuring that everyone has access to the full spectrum of reproductive health care, including the right to access an abortion. By advocating for robust legal protections and opposing efforts to roll back these rights, Martin is dedicated to maintaining and expanding access to reproductive health services for all.


How Martin Has Delivered for New Mexicans:

  • Supported pro-choice candidates to overturn state abortion ban. Martin recruited and helped elect pro-choice Democrats to the New Mexico Legislature, helping to overturn the state law that made abortions a crime. 
  • Fought to protect freedoms and codify the right to an abortion nationwide. Martin has been a staunch supporter of legislative efforts to enshrine the right to an abortion into federal law, ensuring that this fundamental right is protected against Republican-led efforts to undermine it.
  • Supported efforts to protect the right to access in vitro fertilization (IVF). Understanding that reproductive rights extend beyond abortion, Martin has cosponsored legislation to safeguard access to in vitro fertilization (IVF). With national Republicans attacking this essential fertility treatment, Martin is committed to ensuring that families have the right to pursue IVF without interference.
  • Worked to protect the right to contraception. In response to increasing Republican threats to contraceptive access, including calls by Justice Thomas to reconsider existing protections, Martin has cosponsored legislation aimed at securing the right to contraception. By doing so, he is fighting to preserve critical aspects of reproductive health care that millions of Americans rely on.
