SANTA FE, New Mexico (LifeSiteNews) —Abortionists from New Mexico who travel to other states to kill babies illegally will be supported by the state, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham announced yesterday.

The pro-abortion governor signed an executive order barring state agencies from assisting in prosecution of abortionists in other states as long as the abortionist did not break any New Mexico laws.

The state will also not extradite abortionists for committing illegal abortions or any other crime that is not illegal in New Mexico. “Abortion is not restricted based on gestational age,” in New Mexico, according to the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute.

“The executive order enacted today protects health care providers from discipline due to an out-of-state resident receiving abortion services in New Mexico,” the governor’s office announced on Monday. It also “makes clear that the state will not cooperate with extradition attempts from other states where criminal charges are being pursued against an individual for receiving or performing reproductive services.”

The executive order “prohibits state agencies from cooperating in another state’s investigation into a person or other entity for receiving or delivering reproductive services.”

“Today we have once again declared that we will take every available action to protect the rights and access to health care of anyone in New Mexico,” the governor stated in a news release. “As long as I am governor, abortion will continue to be legal, safe, and accessible in New Mexico.”

The governor on Friday called the reversal of Roe v. Wade and the political movement that led to it “sinister.”

She stated:

This opinion is the culmination of decades of careful, sinister planning by hyper-partisan, archconservative Republican leaders in D.C. For years, they have pushed for cruel restrictions on women at every turn inhibiting access to contraceptives and forcing them to endure torture during the simple act of walking into an abortion clinic. Let’s be clear – this decision not only affects a woman’s right to choose, but also a woman’s right and ability to seek medically-necessary health care.

She also predicted the nation will suffer from the decision.

“The moment we have long dreaded has arrived, and our nation will be the worse for it,” she said. “With this ruling, the Supreme Court has unilaterally thrown out 50 years of judicial precedent and subverted the will of millions of Americans who believe in a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her body.”

The governor noted that New Mexico had repealed a law that would have banned abortion upon the reversal of Roe.
