NM House Republican Committee Sends Letter To Parents

The New Mexico House Republican Committee has sent a letter to local parents, advising that new laws passed during the this legislative session could restrict both parental involvement regarding certain types of medical services and instructional materials provided to minors during the school day, regardless of age. Medical services include: “Gender affirming care,” psychiatric care, and abortion services. The committee says it believes that parents and guardians are responsible for making educational and health care choices for their children until they reach the age of maturity. The letter points parents to make a choice for which they will require notification before a child can participate in activities at school.
