A petition to place a measure on the ballot in Albuquerque, New Mexico would ban late-term abortions in this large city that pro-life advocates are calling the late-term abortion capital of the nation.
A unique attempt at banning late-term abortions through the petition process at the city level has surpassed its goal of 12,000 signatures. The effort, spearheaded by Bud and Tara Shaver of Project Defending Life, had until July 25 to place the initiative on the ballot in October.
