Abortion is legal in New Mexico.
In June 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court overruled Roe v. Wade in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, which returned the power to the states to restrict, or even prohibit, abortion. In 2021, New Mexico repealed an abortion ban that pre-dated Roe. Abortion is legal in New Mexico through all stages of pregnancy.
Note: State and federal laws change frequently, especially on such controversial topics as abortion. Please contact a lawyer or conduct your own legal research to verify these reproductive rights laws.
