089 Elisa Martinez NM Alliance for Life

On this week’s interview Paul sits down with Elisa Martinez, Executive Director of the New Mexico Alliance for Life.    Her organization is a leading pro-life voice in the New Mexico Legislature and they worked to defeat legislation that would have allowed for assisted suicide and dramatically liberalized New Mexico’s abortion laws.    Unlike so many conservative causes in New Mexico, Elisa’s group won its major (defensive) battles. How did they win? What can other groups engaged in public policy throughout New Mexico learn from their success? What’s ahead for the 2020 Legislature and elections? Are there issues of concern that cross over from social conservatives to more libertarian/free market advocates?
