We have some serious problems. The most liberal assisted suicide bill in the nation has been proposed here in NM and is moving through the NM Roundhouse. This bill would pretty much allow anyone help anyone else commit suicide for any reason and then cover up the fact that it was an assisted suicide. Catholic democrats are supporting this and even some republicans!

Here is a Patient’s Rights (pro-life) Analysis of this legislation http://www.patientsrightscouncil.org/…/new-mexico-end-of-l…/
I checked the NMCCB website as well as the Archdiocese of Santa Fe and Diocese of Gallup website and I found nothing about these bills.
However the Diocese of Las Cruces has this link which seems quite thorough… http://www.dioceseoflascruces.org/physician-assisted-suicide
Here is the link to contact legislators.
(Proud Catholic for Choice, Sen. Gerald Ortiz y Pino)
Of course Ortiz y Pino is a radical democrat Catholic pro-abort who is a proud member of ABQ Catholics for Choice! There is a bill in this years legislative session that few people have noticed and I know you will take action when you see it. It is SB282 sponsored by Senator Ortiz y Pino of Albuquerque. This bill forces ALL hospitals in New Mexico to perform abortions and has penalties for those who refuse.
