Default City clerk verifies petition to put abortion ban on Albuquerque ballot

Quote:
The Albuquerque City Clerk's Office has verified enough petition signatures to put a late-term abortion ban up for a vote in the city.

The clerk's office confirmed to KOB Eyewitness News 4 that the city accepted the 12,261st signature on Tuesday, which is the exact number needed to take the issue to the voters.

The ban won't be seen in the city's general election in October, however. Last week, the clerk missed the deadline to get the issue to the city council, who has to approve a resolution in order to get the question on the ballot. The clerk's office had only verified 9,000 signatures at that time.

You know, I don't know what to think about the ban. It seems to be kinda bleh...

BUT what I did find interesting was the protests during the drive to get signatures.

The protest in front of the HOLOCAUST museum?!

I get so sick of this topic sometimes, both side are ether all or nothing. There is room for middle ground here, but nether will give. I say a plague on both your houses.

Personally, I don't like abortion.
However, I realize that others feel differently. LTA's I think most can agree are usually unnecessary. I too wish folks would quit with the all or nothing approach.

If a clerk and decide gay marriage is suddenly allowed in a state all on their own I guess they should allow this too.

New Mexico is quickly becoming the dumbest outta the 57.

If you could honestly characterize it, maybe your argument would gain traction.
