When many Americans think of Roswell, New Mexico, the first thing that comes to mind is their history as a hub for extraterrestrial conspiracy theories. That’s where the infamous Roswell spaceship crash occurred, which the government unrelentingly denies.
But the city has a new claim to fame. It’s unofficially a “fetal life sanctuary city” after the city council passed a resolution claiming “fetal life” should be protected. This news is fresh, so the city has not had to face questions about what that means or lawsuits form the ACLU at this time, but both will happen soon enough.

This is the type of limited-government federalism that should be happening all across the country. Most federalism-minded folks like to talk about states’ rights, but counties, cities, communities, and individuals have their own place in government, and this seems like a perfect example of federalism in action.
Kudos to Roswell. We are a crowdfunded pro-life site, so it’s wonderful to see a victory with so many defeats in recent years. New Mexico is notorious for being very loose with their abortion laws, so having a city fight back against the overreach of state and national laws is wonderful.
The fight to promote a pro-life society often gives too much emphasis to DC. States and even cities have battles we can win if we’re willing to fight with everything we have for preborn babies.
