New Mexico

Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers (TRAP)

Restrictions on Who May Provide Abortion Services

New Mexico prohibits certain qualified health-care professionals from providing abortion services.

Only a physician licensed by the state using acceptable medical procedures may provide abortion care. N.M. Stat. Ann. § 30-5-1(C) (Enacted 1969).

The New Mexico attorney general issued an opinion stating that this physician-only requirement is enforceable. N.M. Op. Att'y Gen. No. 90-19 (Oct. 3, 1990).
