We want to give special thanks to Protest ABQ, The Fathers' Rights Movement, Restoring Freedom 2016, FCLU-New Mexico and everyone who helped spread the word and attending our "Stop Child Abuse, Start Listening" event yesterday. We also want to thank KOAT for coming out and doing a story.
Here is KOAT's coverage:
The left and right CAN come together to protect children!
Governor Susana Martinez has come under fire from a progressive group, The Center For Civic Action which calls her out in a recent ad for not doing enough to address child abuse in the wake of the recent horrific death of Victoria Martens.
The controversial ad states, "Tragedies like Victoria's are preventable. Gov. Martinez, this is your legacy, you aren't doing enough to save our kids." The Center for Civic Action
Governor Martinez responded to the ad by saying, "The ad is disgusting, not because it is about me, but because it comes from a liberal organization..."
Watch the ad and Governor Martinez's full response: HERE
This isn't the first time Governor Martinez's administration lashed out at their critics for attempting to hold Governor Martinez accountable for not doing more to protect New Mexico's children. In fact this is how they responded to Protest ABQ's controversial efforts, "NM Gov. Susana Martinez's Campaign Strategist Calls Pro-Life Activists 'Pieces of S***'"
The liberals aren't the only ones who agree that the brutal, tragic preventable deaths of children under her watch is in fact Governor Martinez's legacy. Protest ABQ has dubbed Martinez, "Silent Susana" due to her lack of action on behalf of pre-born children during her tenure as Governor of New Mexico. Protest ABQ agrees that Governor Martinez is not doing enough to protect New Mexico's children, these tragedies are preventable and Governor Martinez this is your legacy, dead children inside and outside the womb.
