UNM Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology sees patient increase after Texas abortion ban By Madeline Pukite @madelinepukite In light of the recent abortion ban in Texas, abortion providers in New Mexico have seen an influx of patients as many individuals travel across state lines to receive safe healthcare. The ban in Texas prohibits all abortions six weeks after the individual’s last menstrual cycle, which is before many people even know they are pregnant. The law also allows anyone in the state to enforce it; individuals can sue anyone aiding in the abortion process for up to $10,000. Eve Espey, chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynocolgy at the University of New Mexico, spoke to the Daily Lobo about what the neighboring state’s ban means for abortion providers in New Mexico.

“We have always seen a number of patients from Texas, but — in the brief period of time since the ban was passed — we have seen an increase, and we anticipate to continue to see an increase as long as this ban is in effect,” Espey said. Espey said the department is taking several steps to ensure they are prepared to handle anyone who comes in seeking care, including working on staffing plans and shifting some routine appointments to make sure there is availability for abortion services. The people who the ban affects the most include those from low-income and rural areas and people of color, according to Espey. For many of these individuals, finding the resources to travel into the state is the first economic barrier they face. Devki Joshi, a third-year resident in the obstetrics and gynecology clinic at UNM Hospital,

said the financial obstacles to getting care don’t end there. “Patients who are from Texas, they do not have health insurance coverage in New Mexico … So, there are some financial burdens people are navigating through,” Joshi said. “And we offer all the options to every patient, regardless of their payer status.” Espy said the ban has increased the fear of sharing personal information with providers among some out-of-state patients. “There's tremendous fear on the part of patients. It's hard to know what patients don't reveal,” Espy said. “But the atmosphere of confusion and chaos in patients’ minds about what they can and cannot do and what they can and cannot say, I think, is only increasing.” There are several advocacy groups in the state dedicated to helping individuals seeking an abortion, including Indigenous

Women Rising, Mariposa Fund, New Mexico Religious Collation for Reproductive Choice and Bold Futures. These groups help provide lodging, transportation and aid to different people who might need it while seeking an abortion. Espey said the clinic retains a positive relationship with these organizations. “We have a community that's been ongoing for some time,” Espy said. “That helps ensure access and mutual support for reproductive health access.” This is not the first time New Mexico has seen a major influx of patients from Texas. Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, there was an executive order in Texas that shut down nearly all access to abortion services in the state, and this previous experience has been a guiding resource with the current ban. “That was a time when we saw about a doubling of patients from Texas … We've done some

City council defers zero bus fare and speed camera decisions By Madeline Pukite

of the modelings about what we could expect to see (based off of that) in the setting of this law,” Espy said. For many physicians themselves, this has been an incredibly emotional experience. Joshi said the ban itself feels “disrespectful” to the work she strives to do as an OB-GYN in providing safe and important care to her patients. She is, however, very grateful to be able to provide for the patients who have faced numerous challenges to see her. “It's an absolute honor to care for patients, especially in these times where they're incredibly vulnerable, and to meet them in that moment is such a privilege,” Joshi said.

At the Albuquerque city council meeting on Sept. 8, councilors voted to defer two key issues that would have individually eliminated local bus fares and placed traffic cameras to fine speeders in the city. The deferral of the zero bus fares amendment is the second time this specific action has been deferred; the first deferment happened on Aug. 2. The amendment would be a year-long pilot program that the city has already budgeted for and funded, allowing everyone who wishes to ride a city bus to do so free for a year.

The deferral came after lots of debate in the meeting over the safety of the program and anti-homeless rhetoric. Councilor Brook Bassan said many councilors were worried about security issues with “certain ridership — of the unhoused — being on the buses and the transit system,” and proposed that the power to remove passengers from buses be given to the drivers if a nuisance does occur. Councilor Trudy Jones also spoke out against the current plan, as she did not think it did enough to benefit people using it as a means to get to work and is currently set up only to benefit the unhoused population.

UNM beats NMSU 34-23 in rivalry game By Spencer Butler

@SpencerButler48 The University of New Mexico football team beat their in-state rivals, the New Mexico State University Aggies, 34-23 in front of a strong crowd of 28,470 fans at University Stadium on Saturday. This is the first time UNM has won their first two games of a season since 2005. UNM got off to a quick start, opening the game with a 3-play, 64-yard touchdown drive that was capped by a 4-yard rush from running back Bobby Cole. The only score NMSU was able to manage as a response in the first quarter was a 43-yard field goal from kicker Ethan Albertson before the Lobos got another touchdown from Terry Wilson Jr.’s 15-yard pass to tight end Connor Witthoft; he carried this across for a touchdown, making the score 14-3. The Aggies kicked another field goal to open the second quarter, cutting the Lobos’ lead to 14-6. UNM struggled offensively in the second quarter, allowing NMSU multiple opportunities to score. The Aggies ate into the Lobos’ lead again with a lateral pass play from quarterback Dino Maldonaldo to wide receiver Isaiah Garcia-Castaneda, who then threw to tight end Thomaz Whitford for the touchdown. Another UNM drive stalled out and, after going for a fourth down, the Lobos turned the ball

over on downs with 4:11 left in the first half and gave NMSU a chance to take the lead. However, Lobos linebacker Cody Moon picked off Maldonaldo’s pass at the NMSU 48-yard line, giving UNM great field position to try to extend their lead. Shortly after, Wilson hit wide receiver Andrew Erickson for a 17-yard touchdown pass that made the score 21-13. NMSU quickly responded with a 75-yard touchdown; Maldonaldo completed a pass

to Garcia-Castaneda, making the score 21-20 with 1:57 left in the half. The score turned to 24-20 when the Lobos kicked a field goal to end the first half. UNM’s defense didn’t allow NMSU to score during the third quarter, but the Lobos’ offense remained cold, only getting another field goal from kicker Andrew Shelley to make the score 27-20 after three quarters. NMSU began the fourth quar-

ter with a 37-yard field goal that made the score 27-23 in favor of the Lobos but, with 12:32 left in the game, there was plenty of time for the Aggies to take the lead. But UNM didn’t allow that to happen; Willson hit wide receiver Mannie Logan-Greene for a 58yard pass that Logan-Green was able to run in for a touchdown, making the score 34-23 with 12:01 left in the game. The Aggies didn’t score for the rest of the game, and a late inter-

ception by Jerrick Reed II with 2:16 left sealed the Lobos’ victory in the Rio Grande Rivalry. Head coach Danny Gonzales gave credit to NMSU and their head coach Doug Martin for competing against UNM at a high level. He said while he was happy with the way the Lobos ran the ball in the second half and the job the offensive line did in the fourth, he still saw areas for improvement. “I thought we didn’t execute well enough,” Gonzales said. “We made way too many mistakes; in the first half I think we had seven penalties for 67 yards … but we were the better football team tonight.” Gonzales was also happy with the defensive pressure his team was able to apply the whole night. “Defensively, I thought we improved outside of three big plays,” Gonzales said. “Up front we improved dramatically; we got pressure on (Maldonaldo) all night long.” As a whole, Gonzales felt that the major improvements from UNM’s last game against Houston Baptist were the running game and the performance of Wilson. UNM will now travel to College Station, Texas to play against the fifth-ranked team in the country, Texas A&M University (2-0), on Saturday, Sept. 18.

“If we want to be a vibrant growing city and a true city we need to have a public transit system that serves everyone, and I’m hearing here we only want to serve homeless people?” Jones said. Councilor Lan Sena instead advocated for social workers to be put on

buses as a means to deal with any issues and also cited a similar zero-fare program in Kansas City, Missouri, which made all city busses free for everyone to use. Sena said that Kansas City’s program did not have the effect many councilors are afraid of. “I know based off of other pi-

lot programs which we have evaluated, such as Kansas City, oftentimes what we see is increased ridership,” Sena said. “So more people on buses also mitigates security concerns.” Christopher Ramirez, a transportation advocate with Together for Brothers, a transit equity advocacy group, spoke to the Daily Lobo about the city council’s efforts for free transit. Ramirez said the city council has been working on it for years and have yet to put it into action. “Free fares are about more than buses and transportation. They are about health equity and outcomes,” Ramirez said. “For communities who are transit-dependent, it’s about access to education, employment and recreation as well as promoting healthy habits like eating local and organic food and exercise.”

The deferral of the automated speed cameras ordinance (which would amend the existing transit system ordinance) also caused heavy debate. The proposed cameras would be placed around the city and send $100 tickets via mail to anyone caught driving over the posted speed limit. This ordinance also comes after red-light cameras were removed from Albuquerque in 2011, after the city voted against it and the city council sided with them. While the automated speed cameras would not be used to catch individuals who run traffic lights, they are another form of automated traffic surveillance, which Councilor Pat Davis and Jones were very against. “It will only work for people who want to obey the law,” Jones said, criticizing the bill. Jones said there is no way to enforce individuals to pay the fine giv-

en to them without having officers show up at people’s doors. Bassan, one of the sponsors on the bill, recognized the issues with the bill and said officers would not be sent out, as it would not be a criminal offense. But Bassan said the issue of reckless driving is currently too great to try nothing. “This is a deterrent in my opinion … We have to do something.” Bassan said. “And, it might not work; it probably won’t work for most people, but (it’s) something.” The city council will hear the amendment for zero bus fares again at their next meeting on Sept. 30. Currently, a specific date has not yet been selected for the next hearing of the speed cameras ordinance. Madeline Pukite is a beat reporter at the Daily Lobo.

Injured turtle at Duck Pond dies after animal bite Questions arise about care of wildlife on campus

By Shelby Kleinhans @BirdsNotReal99 Freshman ReElle Snyder came across an injured turtle at the University of New Mexico Duck Pond on Aug. 27 who had a mangled hind leg that was actively bleeding. This wound, which was caused by an animal bite, eventually led to his death, and sparked questions about how the wildlife on campus is being taken care of. When Snyder found the turtle during a class scavenger hunt, the red-eared slider affectionately

named ‘Ed’ continued suffering while she struggled to quickly find someone on campus who could provide care. Two hours after calling Bernalillo County Animal Services, an animal control officer arrived and carried Ed away in his makeshift home, a cardboard box. UNM’s Animal Resource Facility was ready to respond to the call for help as well, but animal control happened to get there first. Animal Resource Facility director Tara Ooms said that, as a veterinarian, she’s licensed to work on all animals but doesn’t typically work with wildlife. “In general, we try to respond

to any animal concern on any campus for the University of New Mexico,” Ooms said. Despite everyone’s best efforts, the injuries that Ed sustained were too severe for him to survive. After animal control dropped him off at the Eastside Animal Shelter, he underwent surgery to amputate his hind leg but died the next day in the kennel, according to East Side Animal Shelter vet assistant Felicia Hol. At the Duck Pond, Snyder said she saw numerous instances of offleash dogs running into the water,

lunging at the ducks and generally disturbing the wildlife, all while their owners looked on with indifference. Snyder surmised that a dog had bit the turtle’s leg, and Hol confirmed that the bite was from an animal. "We have wildlife on campus and we don't know how to take care of them, like how the veterinarian on call (at UNM’s Animal

Resource Facility) had no clue how to deal with a turtle even though we brought the turtles into this manmade pond,” Snyder said. Another issue that Snyder noticed while waiting with Ed was the amount of people littering around the pond. With regard to the trash that settles in the water itself, the pond is ideally cleaned every two years by the Physical Plant De-

partment at UNM, according to UNM Newsroom. Steve Howe, the public information representative for Facilities Management at UNM, said there were two cleanings that took place in 2020: a primary cleaning over spring break and a supplementary cleaning later in the year. The second cleaning also confirmed that, besides turtles and ducks, the pond

continues to support bass, koi, carp and even a catfish. Snyder believes that keeping the rest of the wildlife safe and healthy is the responsibility of everyone who visits the Duck Pond so that other animals don’t face the same fate as Ed. “Ed never would have been injured in that capacity had a bicyclist, someone walking or even a

dog had been better watched and more careful,” Snyder said in an email to her professor. Shelby Kleinhans is the multimedia editor at the Daily Lobo. She can be contacted at or on Twitter @BirdsNotReal99


“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” is more than just another Marvel success By John Scott @JScott050901 This review contains spoilers.

Each time I find myself in a theater gearing up for Marvel’s newest offering, I can’t help but prepare for the worst. As the lights dim and that iconic Marvel opening plays, I shield my eyes from the screen, prepping myself for the impossible: a disappointing Marvel movie. But just from the first few minutes of “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,'' I quickly realized that Marvel has another hit on their hands. What I didn’t realize until the credits started rolling, though, was to what scale this film might have an impact on Asian representation in film. The film centers on a brilliantly cast Simu Liu as Xu Shang-Chi on a journey to protect his mother’s

homeland from his villainous, misguided father Xu Wenwu, who is excellently portrayed by the legendary Tony Leung Chiu-wai. Of course, the audience's first introduction to Liu’s character is not the superpowered Shang-Chi, but rather, the startlingly average valet driver Shaun and his witty bestfriend Katy Chen, hilariously played by the wonderful Awkwafina. This all changes, of course, when Shaun, aka Shang-Chi, receives a mysterious postcard in the mail from Macau. The movie’s plot structure isn’t anything we haven’t seen before; Shang-Chi is set up to be a failure and his character journey will consist of him realizing he’s capable of so much more. Luckily, the film adds in some family dynamics and a dedication to the film's side characters’ evolutions, like Katy, which help to make the plot feel just unique enough to pass. And, much to the credit of cowriter and director Destin Daniel

Cretton, these small embellishments provide big returns as the film is a rather interesting family drama as much as it is a superhero origin story. This doesn’t come as a large surprise given Cretton’s deft handling of complex plots and family dynamics in his previous films, namely “Short Term 12.” With the postcard in hand, Shang-Chi and Katy (because how could you leave Awkwafina behind?) head to Macau with plans to warn Shaun’s sister Xu Xialing, played by Meng’er Zhang, from what he believes to be a plot orchestrated by his estranged father. In between all of this are some of the most visually appealing and well-choreographed fight scenes in the Marvel cinematic universe. In fact, I’d go as far as to say “ShangChi” contains the best fight sequences in any MCU film to date. “Shang-Chi” draws very heavily from classic martial-arts films to imbue its fighting with a certain level of precision and excitement

not found in any other Marvel film. The flashback scenes between Leung’s Wenwu and Fala Chen’s Jiang Li are particular highlights, playing out more like dances rather than combat sequences. Once in Macau we find out that Shang-Chi’s father was, unsurprisingly, pulling the strings on everything up to this point in an attempt to reunite their family following the death of Shang-Chi’s and Xialing’s mother, Jiang Li, years prior. The film goes back and forth between past and present at many points, frequently revisiting different events with new context. The context usually depends on which parent, Wenwu or Jiang Li, we are learning about with the Jiang Li-focused flashbacks portraying more heart and Wenwu’s flashbacks portraying more harshness. It’s this push and pull between Shang-Chi’s mother and father that is the driving force for who his character will become. He must ac-

cept that he is a combination of his mother and father, not just one or the other. The most important aspect of this film, though, is its casting and representation. Shang-Chi is the first Asian superhero to get their own solo film in the MCU. The film also features a largely Asian cast and an Asian American director. And, judging by the film’s record-breaking box office numbers, it’s clear that people want to see more films like it. Overall, “Shang-Chi” feels like a welcome change of pace from the typical MCU fare, with outstanding fight sequences and brilliant casting and acting. It’s a thoughtful and intriguing take on a character who will hopefully come to shape the future of the MCU, and maybe all superhero films.

UNM Land Acknowledgement statement Founded in 1889, the University of New Mexico sits on the traditional homelands of the Pueblo of Sandia. The original peoples of New Mexico – Pueblo, Navajo, and Apache – since time immemorial, have deep connections to the land and have made significant contributions to the broader community statewide. We honor the land itself and those who remain stewards of this land throughout the generations and also acknowledge our committed relationship to Indigenous peoples. We gratefully recognize our history.

‘One for 5’ beer created to support local food pantry By Rebecca Hobart @DailyLobo Three local breweries — Steel Bender Brewyard, Sierra Blanca Brewing Company and Second Street Brewery — teamed up for Hunger Action Month this September to create the third annual “One for 5” collaborative stout in support of Storehouse New Mexico, the largest food pantry in the state. A dollar from every pint sold in a taproom and 100% of package sales go to the local storehouse, where $1 will provide five meals for anyone in New Mexico who needs them, according to Shelby Chant, co-owner and marketing director of Steel Bender Brewyard. The participating breweries have draft and package sales of this year’s “One for 5” hazy pale ale available throughout September at any of the three breweries or at 25 different local Albertsons. “There’s a very direct equation of how much impact you have by just buying a single beer,” Randy Ziegler, development manager of Sierra Blanca, said. Marketing manager of Storehouse New Mexico Jill Beets said hunger in the state is an ongoing issue and this project brings awareness to its severity.

“New Mexico is of the worst in hunger, both for children and adults,” Beets said. “Nearly 20% of the population is wondering where their next meal might come from ... and during the pandemic, those numbers have worsened and one in three children are going hungry.” Storehouse New Mexico has been around for over 40 years and supports about 45,000 people annually, 10,000 of which are children, according to Beets. Albertsons Market was brought

on as the grocery partner because they’ve long supported initiatives of Storehouse, according to Chant. She said having a packaged charity beer in so many Albertsons locations throughout the state has tremendous potential to help the food pantry. “We’re constantly looking for ways to raise money to feed people because (hunger) is an ongoing need here,” Beets said. Beets said Storehouse New Mexico relies on fundraising and independent donations to keep

their doors open. “There’s been a trend not just here in New Mexico but across the microbrew industry of multiple breweries coming together to collaborate ... for unique releases, but in particular for charity,” Ziegler said. “It’s become pretty much an industry standard that breweries can work collectively for a greater cause.” Beets said buying food items in a wholesale fashion is what keeps the cost down and allows Storehouse New Mexico to stretch a dollar to cover five meals. “This year we were able to do something a little more uniquely local than we have in years past,” Chant said. It was important to the brewers this year to have a New Mexicocentric product, Beets said. The two types of hops used this year were sabro and zappa, whose lineage comes from New Mexican wild hops. In addition, the pilsner malt comes from New Mexico Malting, who sells the local barley used in the stout. “What is so great about breweries being involved in the community in this way is the nature of a brewery, of a taproom, of a public house is that it also draws the interest of people who are very communityminded,” Chant said. “You’re able

to come into these spaces and be a part of something that’s more than just sitting down and having a beer.” In 2020, the “One for 5” initiative was cut significantly as breweries across the state were struggling to keep their doors open after the COVID-19 pandemic forced restrictions on indoor taprooms and limited draft sales, Chant said. “People were going and buying a lot of packaged beer during the pandemic,” Chant said. “We knew we could supply Albertsons with a lot of beer and shift more of the focus over to packaged beer instead of from draft in our taprooms. We just didn’t know, week to week, if we get shut down and have draft sitting there in kegs — that’s a problem.” The ongoing support from Steel Bender Brewyard, Second Street Brewery and Sierra Blanca Brewing Company has been a blessing for Storehouse, according to Beets. “Community comes down to whether or not we’re taking care of each other, and families gathered around tables and having enough to eat is how we stay connected as people,” Beets said.

The Pack lights up Johnson Field for Red Rally By John Scott @JScott050901 A distinct orange glow lit up the night sky on Sept. 9 as hundreds of students flocked to Johnson Field for Red Rally. This annual event featured the burning of a 25-foottall Aggie effigy ahead of the University of New Mexico’s rivalry football match against New Mexico State University, which happened on Saturday, Sept. 11. This year was the first time Red Rally has taken place since 2019, following the COVID-19 shutdown that began in March 2020.

The rally began with a few short words from Lobo Spirit Executive Director Joshua LaFayette, ASUNM President Greg Romero, UNM President Garnett Stokes and members of the UNM football team, all hyping up the student body for a rivalry game win. Romero spoke to the Daily Lobo about the importance of bringing students back on campus for spirit events such as Red Rally. “Students are going to be back on our campus experiencing what it truly means to be a Lobo,” Romero said. “These are the things that make UNM great. I could not be more excited.”

Romero went on to elaborate on the importance of maintaining tradition after something as largescale as the COVID-19 shutdown. “Especially with the pandemic and being off for a year and a half, it’s very easy to lose tradition and lose that school spirit,” Romero said. “We’re a little bit surprised with how quick it has come back. Students are ready to go. Students are just excited as they were before, maybe even more.” John Scott is the photo editor at the Daily Lobo. He can be contacted at or on Twitter @JScott050901

UNM volleyball goes 2-1 at first home tournament By Annya Loya @annyaloya

The University of New Mexico volleyball team played their first home tournament on Sept. 10 and 11, beating Southeastern Louisiana University and Seattle University before suffering their first loss of the season at the hands of the University of California San Diego. The UNM Tournament began with a match against Southeastern Louisiana, which the Lobos secured with a score of 3-0. The Lions had lost all four of their matches this season (excluding exhibition games) before their match

with UNM. The Lobos dominated Southeastern Louisiana with their height, and UNM was able to win with ease. This lopsided win was also an opportunity for UNM to show off their freshman middle blocker, Elizabeth Woods. Woods finished the match tied with star outside hitter Kaitlynn Biassou in total kills (9) and with setter Melissa Walden in hitting percentage (0.5). For context, Woods’ previous high in total kills was 5. UNM head coach Jon Newman-Gonchar made clear after the match that Woods keeps getting better day by day. “We’re just thrilled she’s having the impact that she’s having,” Newman-Gonchar said. “No one is surprised by it. It’s kind of the ex-

pectation we had of her.” The afternoon of Sept. 10 became a nail-biter as UNM faced the Seattle University Redhawks, where the Lobos lost their first set of the season. SU had played a total of eight matches and had only won two going into the match. The Redhawks still proceeded to be a challenge for the Lobos as they shared the height and attack skills of UNM; the last three sets of the match ended within four points and SU managed to win the third. Biassou had three new season highs against Seattle in kills (17),

points (21) and total blocks (4), propelling the Lobos to a 3-1 win. UC San Diego came into their match against the Lobos 1-7, but they held the size advantage and incredible attacking power. UNM libero Alena Moldan gave the Lobos their best defense with 22 digs, and Walden got the thirdmost assists of her season (33). All three sets were incredibly close, and middle blocker Avital Jaloba and Biassou were each able to contribute 11 kills, but it wasn’t enough to prevent a 0-3 loss. UNM seemed to let themselves

go with 20 attack errors throughout the match. UNM will have two chances to rebound from their first loss of the season before conference play, both against Northern Arizona University who is currently 1-6. UNM will face NAU in Flagstaff on Sept. 16 before playing them again in Albuquerque on Sept. 18. Annya Loya is a freelance reporter at the Daily Lobo.
