Elisa Martinez is the founder and Executive Director of New Mexico Alliance for Life,
whose mission is to advocate for better and informed choices for women facing
unplanned or difficult pregnancies. She has been involved in all aspects of the pro-life
movement for over 15 years, serving as former director of the Gabriel Project, a
pregnancy resource center in Albuquerque, and as the co-founder of Sidewalk Advocates
for Life of Albuquerque.
Elisa currently serves as a pro-life advocate, policy analyst and spokesperson. She took
on New Mexico’s pro-abortion Governor and Democrat-controlled legislature by
spearheading a bipartisan statewide coalition that defeated abortion up-to-birth and
infanticide legislation in 2019.
Her organization worked closely with the U.S. Congressional Select Panel on Infant
Lives, in identifying violations of both federal and state laws in the harvesting of infant
body parts for experimentation, which resulted in two criminal referrals.
Elisa is a native New Mexican and she looks forward to the day when New Mexico
ceases to be the late-term abortion capital of the nation, and is instead a pro-life example
