There’s no timeline for a $10 million reproductive health center of the future in Las Cruces, NM, but advocates head out to the capital to lay out a vision beyond abortion care.

About two dozen supporters of the health center — including advocacy nonprofits like Forward Together, Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains and Bold Futures NM — met Friday in a room on the third floor of the roundhouse.

Adrian Barboa, Bernalillo County commissioner and policy director at Forward Together, said the center would not be limited to abortions, and could be expanded to include a birthing center.

“We deserve the full spectrum of reproductive health care, basic essential needs, abortion care, gender-affirming care — we want it all,” Barboa said.
