(LifeNews) The New Mexico Senate rejected a radical pro-abortion bill Thursday that would have kept abortions legal for any reason up to birth in the state.

The vote was 18-24. It was a tough fight for pro-life advocates after the bill passed the House in February and Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, who claims to be Catholic, said she would support it.

Pro-life advocates celebrated the victory and praised the Republican and Democratic lawmakers who helped to defeat the bill.
