The ban in Albequerque would effectively result in statewide ban since the only clinics that offer abortions after 20 weeks in New Mexico are in Albequerque, opponents of the measure told the Post.

The measure has the support of the majority of Albequerque voters. Fifty-four percent support the ballot initiative, according to a Albequerque Journal poll conducted in early September.

If the provision passes, it would be the first municipal level ban in the country.
