Many Albuquerque Catholics got a letter from Santa Fe Archdiocese Archbishop Michael Sheehan Sunday morning, encouraging them to vote for Albuquerque’s proposed abortion ban.
In the letter, the archbishop asked that they education friends about the ban.
The proposal would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy in Albuquerque.
The archbishop’s letter says the ban will not only protect children, but will also raise awareness that late-term abortions are happening in New Mexico.
At 5pm Sunday, the archbishop will hold a special Mass and day of prayer here at the Shrine of Bernadette.
He will encourage Catholics to do everything they can to get the ban to pass.
All are welcome at the mass.
KOB Eyewitness News 4 will be inside to see what the archbishop has to say.
Not all Catholics support the ban.
KOB Eyewitness News 4 is talking with some of them to find out why, and will have that story on KOB Eyewitness News 4 at 10.
