Anti-abortion and pro-choice demonstrators argue in front of the Supreme Court during the March for Life January 24, 2011 in Washington, DC. The annual march marks the anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision by the court that made abortion legal in the United States.

In just over a month, voters in Albuquerque will decide whether to ban late-term abortions. It promises to be a contentious fight. Yesterday, the state's attorney general said the proposed ordinance would be unconstitutional and unenforceable.

From the Fronteras Desk, Carrie Jung explores how the campaign in this moderate state with liberal abortion laws is playing out.
