Reproductive and Gender-Affirming Health Care Freedom Act heads to governor’s desk
SANTA FE, N.M. — The Reproductive and Gender-Affirming Health Care Freedom Act has received concurrence from the House on a 39-29 vote.
The legislation was approved by the Senate on a 23-15 vote earlier this week. It was sent back to the House to approve amendments made by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
House Bill 7 will now head to the governor’s desk for her signature.
The bill indirectly protects access to abortion, hormone treatments, and gender-affirming surgeries by preventing local governments from enacting restrictions.
Track HB 7 during the legislative session.
