Mark explains how these enforceable ordinances at the local level interface with state and federal law in both abortion-restricted and abortion-unrestricted states, and how local communities can be successfully mobilized to get these enforceable ordinances passed to protect both preborn children and their mothers and families from the evil of abortion. Mark was recently the only non-government actor named as a defendant in the federal lawsuit regarding the Texas Heartbeat Act which recently went before the Supreme Court of the United States.

This settlement marks history as the first abortion malpractice settlement in New Mexico and the first settlement of a University in an abortion-related case.
