An initiative to ban late-term abortions is bringing Albuquerque, N.M., voters to the polls early.
More than 25,000 citizens have cast early ballots on a city-wide measure that would ban abortions after 20 weeks, and thousands more are expected to vote by the end of the week.
Political observers say the early turn-out is a positive sign for conservatives. But Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union are said to have pumped money into a campaign to defeat it.
Election Day is Tuesday. This vote is being called historic because it gives people a say on an abortion issue.
Elisa Martinez, of Protect Albuquerque Women and Children, talked more about the implication of Tuesday's vote on CBN News Today, Nov. 15.
