 Abortion patients leave poor reviews of late-term abortion facility in Dallas

Southwestern Women's Options late-term abortion facility Dallas.

There appears to be a bad run for late-term abortion facilities receiving poor reviews online from clients. Live Action News recently highlighted comments published against Warren Hern’s Colorado facility with alleged clients claiming the abortionist “speaks aggressively” and was “very condescending and suspicious”. Alleged patients who sought abortions at a late-term facility located in the nation’s capital, operated by abortionist Cesare Santangelo, called his Washington Surgi-Clinic the “Worst place ever” describing it as “a meat market”.

Now, reviews published about a later term abortion facility in Dallas, Texas is also receiving poor reviews from alleged clients. Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO) is one of a handful of abortion facilities in the nation which commits late-term abortions. It is owned and operated by Curtis Wayne Boyd, which has facilities in both Albuquerque, New Mexico where they commit abortions through 28 weeks of pregnancy as well as Dallas where they end the lives of preborn children up to 21 weeks.

Boyd employs a number of abortion doctors, some who were mentioned in reviews Live Action News uncovered.

Boyd’s Dallas facility received several critical Google reviews, with many comments alleging long wait times at SWO. But, some were complimentary, like this one which began, “I called planned parenthood first, the lady who answered was very short with me when I asked prices and said ‘thank you for calling’ and hung up right away.  When I called here, I spoke to Melinda and she was so nice to me and answered all my questions and more.”

Many published reviews of the Dallas abortion facility were very critical.

Two months ago, alleged SWO patient, Gabriel, wrote, “Do not recommend! Southwestern Women’s Surgery just care about money.”

Another woman wrote, “The staff was evil.”

Still, others called SWO’s staff, “rude and inconsiderate.”

Alleged patient Princess claimed the staff’s slowness was costing her extra money:

Although Boyd brags online that he is, “recognized for his expertise in pain management and minimizing surgery risk” and also claims that he helped establish “the National Abortion Federation (NAF) and is a founding member of the Federation’s Board of Directors” reviews left on Google indicate his facility’s ability to manage pain may not be as good as he claims.

One alleged patient complained that, “The part that i dont like is that I see,heard,and feel everything….i feel a lot a pain…”

In 2006, a patient at Boyd’s New Mexico facility filed a lawsuit against him after she suffered severe pain which “caused her to move about on the table, forcing the doctor to stop the procedure several times,” and because the clinic could not find an anesthesiologist they suggested the abortion patient go to a hospital to finish the procedure. According to the lawsuit, “Dr. [Thomas] Hall advised Plaintiff that one option was to find a doctor at a hospital who would perform the procedure.  Although no hospital in New Mexico takes patients directly for elective abortions, Dr. Hall informed Plaintiff that the University of New Mexico Hospital allows for exceptions, such as referral of patients with complications.” As a result, in an attempt to finish what SWO started, that physician, “unknowingly extracted Plaintiff’s right ureter, the tube connecting the kidney to the bladder.”

Pain during abortion is not uncommon and neither are complications.

In fact, nine months ago, another alleged patient at the Dallas SWO abortion facility, also accused the abortion facility of leaving her with an incomplete abortion, she wrote in part, “At southwestern, I felt it. It hurt. Briefly, it only lasted two minutes and they had me out the door. A few weeks later I go to the hospital for unrelated reasons and they tell me I’m pregnant. I said it was a mistake, I had a surgical abortion. They did a sonó and there is still tissue in me causing me to read as pregnant even though I’ve had my menstral. This is potentially life threatening and I will be contacting an attorney. Please make sure you get an experienced doctor. This could potentially leave me barren.”

Around that same timeframe, Lauren claims the staff tried to pressure her into an abortion. She gave this scathing review, “Disgusting place pushes abortion on anyone regardless of whether we think our pregnancy is a gift or not. This is a person. That is so sick that for basic screenings they would push a political viewpoint on me. I am glad I am having a baby and even if I did not want her I would give her to someone else.”

Alleged patient Anil warned, “Please avoid this clinic. Long wait and not at all helpful.”

In 2013, Live Action released undercover video from their, Inhuman investigative series which exposed abortion doctors at Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque revealing disturbing aspects of the facility’s protocol, including the practice of leaving women alone in hotel rooms to deliver their dead children.

An unnamed counselor at the facility advises Live Action’s 27-week-pregnant investigator:

If we can’t catch it [delivery of the dead baby – the final stage of the abortion procedure] early enough, which has happened … then you’ll want to unlock the door to the hotel room, get your cell phone, and just sit on the toilet.  You don’t have to look at anything … you can stay on the phone with us until the doctor and nurse get there[.]

SWO abortion doctor Carmen Landau echoed this advice, telling the Live Action investigator to “sit on the toilet” and “unlock the hotel room.”

“Just sit there,” Landau says, “and you would not move until we come and get you.”

Staff at the New Mexico facility have been recorded expressing a willingness to abort a child at 30 weeks because of the mother’s “stress,” and were recorded offering to abort a 37-week-old preborn baby for $17,000. In addition, the New Mexico facility was recently in the news after the death of one of their abortion patients was blamed on pregnancy complications.

Live Action News published a report detailing how Boyd and his late-term abortion facility have been mired in controversy on a national level since coming under fire by a congressional committee for his work with the University of New Mexico, where the abortionist serves as adjunct faculty. In 2016, Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives, issued a subpoena against SWO in NM, relating to charges that abortion and Planned Parenthood facilities are selling aborted baby body parts for research. Late last year, a patient of SWO filed a lawsuit against owner Curtis Boyd and abortionists Carmen Landau and Shelley Sella, for failing to detail the clinic’s collaboration with the University of New Mexico, the sole recipient of fetal parts where Boyd works.

Whether abortion facilities receive good or poor reviews, all abortions take the lives of innocent preborn children and sometimes their mothers as well. This is something Southwester’s founder Boyd is well aware of having admitted once that, “Yes, I am” killing.

Woman DEAD from Abortion at Late-Term Facility Currently Under Criminal Investigation

Posted in 911 calls, Abortion clinic, Abortion Clinic Inspections, Abortion death, Abortion Death List, Abortionist Investigated, Late term abortion with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 24, 2017 by saynsumthn

PRESS RELEASE
(By Cheryl Sullenger)

Albuquerque, NM – A woman has died as the result of a late-term abortion process initiated at Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO), in Albuquerque, New Mexico, which is the largest abortion facility in the U.S. that openly specializes in abortions throughout all nine months of pregnancy.

Abortion Free New Mexico obtained the autopsy report for Keisha Marie Atkins, 23, who died on February 4, 2017, after being transported from SWO to UNM Hospital. Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico has also been in communication with members of Atkins’ family.

Operation Rescue is assisting Abortion Free New Mexico with an investigation of this tragedy.

This abortion-related death is particularly troubling in light of a criminal investigation that is currently underway by the New Mexico Attorney General’s Office into Southwestern Women’s Options and UNM. UNM has aggressively worked to increase second and third trimester abortions at SWO, which, in turn, is UNM’s largest provider of aborted baby tissue and organs. A U.S. House investigation found this arrangement violates state and federal law, despite stonewalling and obfuscation on the part of UNM and SWO.

Atkins reported to SWO on January 31, 2017, for a four day late-term abortion procedure that was to be done by eighty-year old abortion facility owner Curtis Boyd. It is believed that Atkins was six months pregnant or more.

Four days later, on February 3, 2017, Atkins returned to SWO for the completion of the abortion where she displayed labored breathing and signs of sepsis, a systemic, life-threatening infection.

At 12:04 p.m. on February 3, an ambulance was called to transport Atkins to the hospital, but was later cancelled, raising questions of how and when Atkins actually received emergency medical help.

Once at the UNM Medical Center, Atkins’ condition deteriorated rapidly, prompting UNM staff to perform an emergency D&E abortion procedure to remove her baby through dismemberment.

During the procedure, Atkins suffered cardiac arrest. Efforts to revive her were unsuccessful, and she was pronounced dead at 12:10 a.m. on February 4, 2017.

An autopsy was conducted at the UNM Health Sciences Center by the UNM Office of the Medical Investigator, which also serves as the Bernadillo County Coroner. The OMI determined that Atkins cause of death was “pulmonary thromboembolism due to pregnancy,” in other words, blood clots in the lungs.

However, a careful review of the autopsy findings indicates that this cause of death is a whitewash meant to blame Atkins’ pregnancy for her death instead of what appears to be a mismanaged late-term abortion procedure.

“UNM is a biased promoter of abortion that is attempting to shift blame onto Atkins’ pregnancy, instead of the abortion, where the blame rightfully belongs,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Keisha Atkins and her family deserve the truth, not a cover-up. But with UNM and SWO, covering up their misdeeds has become standard operating procedure.”

There is evidence that Atkins suffered from sepsis, a bacterial infection caused by the four-day abortion process, which brought about symptoms consistent with Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC). Atkins suffered hemorrhaging in her brain, a buildup of fluid around her lungs, and other symptoms of DIC that the autopsy ignored.

Pro-life leaders believe there is a way to keep other women from suffering Atkins’ fate.

“We call on the New Mexico Attorney General to step up their criminal investigation, and we call on the State Medical Board to take a hard, honest look at Keisha Atkins’ death,” Newman said. “Curtis Boyd should be stopped from practicing, and the dangerous Southwestern Women’s Options should be shut down for good.”

“Coverups are as heinous as the crimes, and the crimes of the abortion cartel in New Mexico have been covered up for too many years. It is time for Hector Balderas to do his job or resign. It is time for the UNM Regents to do their jobs or resign. It is time for the New Mexico Medical Board to fully investigate Keisha’s death without bias,” said Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, The Protest Priest.

“We join the family of Keisha Atkins as they grieve her death from serious complications during a late term abortion at Southwestern Women’s Options. She was a 23-year old vibrant woman with her whole life ahead of her that was tragically cut short,” stated Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico. “For years we have worked to expose the barbaric nature of late term abortion in New Mexico and sought to bring accountability to the unregulated and unaccountable Abortion Cartel. Now more than ever, we need leadership in our city and state to take a bold stand and the necessary steps to prevent the needless deaths of women and their children through late term abortion.”

New Mexico taxpayers pay hundreds of thousands of dollars annually for abortions

Posted in Late term abortion, Medicaid abortion, Tax Payer Funding of Abortion with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 25, 2017 by saynsumthn

 

Live Action has exposed the fact that taxpayers are, indeed, funding abortion, despite contrary claims from Planned Parenthood and its supporters. In recent articles, Live Action News demonstrated to readers how government dollars given to abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood can fund abortion-related services, facilities and staff. The process of fungibility was also explained in a Live Action video:

Previous Live Action News articles have shown how taxpayer dollars actually do fund abortions. According to the most recently available report from the state of California’s Medi-Cal program, public funds paid for more than 83,000 abortions in the state in 2014.

What about other states? In Minnesota, abortions have fallen to their lowest number in 35 years of reporting — but in 2015, taxpayer-funded abortions in the state increased almost 11 percent, with Planned Parenthood committing the largest portion of those procedures.

In Alaska, the Department of Health and Social Services Bureau of Vital Statistics shows that while abortions in that state declined 5.5 percent from 2015 to 2016, tax funded abortions rose over 34 percent from 32.8 percent to 44.1 percent.

And now, we have information about taxpayer-funded abortions in New Mexico.

If you want to know where to get a taxpayer-funded abortion, look no further than an abortion facility’s website. Abortion is a business, which is why facilities publish all possible ways they can be paid for the services they offer — so I did some research by checking out the website for Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO), one of the busiest abortion facilities in the state.

Southwestern Women’s Options is one of several centers that will kill a preborn baby through all nine months of pregnancy. As you see in the screen below, the facility website states: “New Mexico Medicaid covers medically necessary abortion procedures.”

So, what does “medically necessary” mean? As I described previously, to abortionists at an abortion business like Planned Parenthood, it means any and all abortions. Why should Southwestern Women’s Options, a notorious late-term abortion facility, think any differently?

New Mexico Southwestern Medicaid Abortion

Undercover calls made to SWO reveal that not only will the late term abortion facility bill abortions to the taxpayer, they will do it even if the person needing the procedure is a minor impregnated by an older relative. The caller in the video below tells a staff member at SWO that she is under 18 years old and later states that she is 16.

Asked how far along into the pregnancy she is, the caller states, “Um, I’m 26 weeks.”

The staff member finds out that the caller has no insurance — not even “New Mexico Medicaid,” according to the recording.

The caller is quoted a fee of $7,500 and is offered a 20 percent discount for assistance, leaving her with $6,000 to pay.

Caller: “If I had Medicaid, would that cover it?”

Abortion Clinic: “Yes.”

Caller: “Could I get Medicaid without my parents knowing?”

Clinic: “Um–there is uh–what’s called emergency pregnancy Medicaid… so you could try that…”

In yet another call, the investigator tells the facility that she is “about 26 weeks” and that there’s nothing medically wrong with “the pregnancy.”

She is then asked by the staff member if she has “insurance or Medicaid.”

Caller: “I do have the pregnancy Medicaid.”

Clinic:” So, if we would start this… next week… well actually Medicaid covers the abortion in the state of New Mexico…”

Caller: “How much is it? I’m just curious.”

Clinic: “Well, you are probably looking at a range from anywhere $8 to $9,000…”

According to the most recent published data from the New Mexico Department of Health for 2014, there were 3,347 abortions recorded by the state for that year, a slight increase of 2 percent from the 2013 numbers. By 2016, the Albuquerque Journal reported that New Mexico abortions had decreased 24 percent since 2010.

But those statistics may not paint the full picture.

According to the state, 2014 numbers only reflected abortions performed on New Mexico residents. Because of the state’s liberal laws regarding late-term abortions, women travel to New Mexico from other states to obtain abortions — and these statistics may not reflect the numbers of those women.

According to the Albuquerque Journal:

Abortions among New Mexico residents, especially women ages 19 and younger, are down dramatically since 2010, but the number of out-of-state women coming here for abortions has doubled in the past three years, according to newly compiled state data.

Nearly 20 percent of the roughly 4,500 abortions performed in New Mexico in 2014 involved women from out of state, according to state Department of Health data.

Tax dollars going directly into the pockets of abortion facilities is evidenced by another undercover call between a pro-life investigator and Southwestern Women’s Options, in which the caller tells the staff member she has New Mexico Medicaid and is approximately 30 weeks pregnant with a baby who has Down syndrome.

The SWO staffer, “Molly,” confirms that the facility would be able to do the three- to four-day procedure and bill the abortion to the taxpayer, via Medicaid.

The caller then asks “Molly” how much the procedure would cost as a self-pay, rather than Medicaid paid.

Clinic: “Out of pocket its anywhere from – it’s kind of – you’re looking at a range in between $10,000 and $16,000, somewhere around there…”

Caller: “But Medicaid does cover it 100 percent,right?”

Clinic: “Yes. Yes.”

A report published by Operation Rescue revealed that “in 2011, New Mexico taxpayers paid for 1,786 abortions, which amounted to $1,127,557.26.”

By 2012, data provided by the group Pro-life ABQ showed that the state had funded a total of 649 abortions (598 of which were late-term), costing taxpayers $177,361.32. (See a chart provided by Project Defending Life here.)

More recent data, provided by the pro-life group Pro-life ABQ to Operation Rescue, shows that by 2013, “811 abortions were billed to the state, costing taxpayers $160,007.51.”

Protest ABQ reported that by 2014, “$241,989.69 of tax dollars were used to pay for abortions in New Mexico.” The article does not estimate how many abortions that would have been.

OR’s article goes on to state that “[t]he largest portion of these abortions” was done at Southwestern Women’s Options:

SWO employs Susan Robinson and Shelley Sella, who reside in California; their net income in 2013 from New Mexico Medicaid was $74,770.78 for performing 335 abortions.

The University of New Mexico performed 126 Medicaid funded abortions in 2013, which cost taxpayers $24,729.65.

According to a statement given by Abortion Free New Mexico, in 2015, New Mexico taxpayers spent $210,628.08 on abortions. (Tara Shaver, the group’s spokesperson, provided Live Action News with the 2015 taxpayer-funded abortion data obtained from the New Mexico State Human Services Department through an Inspection of Public Records Act request in March 2017.)

 

While the federal Hyde Amendment puts limits on taxpayer-funded abortions for only very specific reasons, states can use Medicaid dollars to pay for abortions however they choose.

The U.S. Senate is nearing its debate on defunding Planned Parenthood, the largest chain of abortion facilities in the country, which receives over $554 million state and federal tax dollars annually. Lawmakers should protect taxpayers from becoming complicit in over 320,000 abortions each year — by voting to defund Planned Parenthood permanently.

Contact your U.S. and state lawmakers to encourage them to reroute funding from Planned Parenthood to community health centers, and to urge them to stop funding abortions with taxpayer dollars.

Planned Parenthood NOT only abortion clinic using ghoulish baby body parts operation say pro-lifers

Posted in Aborted Baby Body Parts, Abortion clinic, Abortionist, Curtis Boyd with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 19, 2015 by saynsumthn

Pro-lifers in New Mexico claim Planned Parenthood is not the only abortion clinic participating in the ghoulish trade of aborted baby body parts of babies, they say they have proof.

The pro-life group made the claim at a press conference outside an Albuquerque Planned Parenthood.

Protest ABQ Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood is not the only provider of abortions that’s willfully breaking a law to benefit their bottom line,” Tara Shaver, spokesperson for Protest ABQ stated.

“Since New Mexico again is the late term abortion capitol of the nation and Albuquerque is home to the largest later term abortion facility in the nation, we have grave reason for concern, “ she said.

Southwestern Womens fetal tissue aborted baby body parts abortion

Shaver brought to the press conference a consent form from Southwestern Women’s Options which may be the smoking gun proving that the grisly operation of using aborted children’s organs and tissue is systemic to the industry as a while.

SouthWestern Womens abortion

Whether it is the first, second, or third trimester, the Southwestern abortion chain advertises to women that they can end her pregnancy.

Southwestern Women’s has a location in Dallas and one in Albuquerque. The clinic is run by an abortionist who once acknowledged that “I am killing.”

curtisboyd

His name is Dr. Curtis Boyd, and he has been at the center of controversy for his statements and his late term abortions for a while.

A detailed report published by Operation Rescue mentions Boyd:

    Boyd decided to fill in the void left by the closure of Tiller‘s Wichita late-term abortion clinic last year, he set up shop in New Mexico, where there are no legal gestational age limits on abortions. The liberal make-up of the state government would make the passage of restrictive laws difficult. Boyd and his wife, Glenna, contribute heavily to pro-abortion candidates to insure that their business is protected from pro-life legislation. Boyd‘s late-term abortion clinic, Southwestern Women‘s Options, located near downtown Albuquerque, follows the same plan pioneered and perfected by Tiller. He even hired two of Tiller‘s former abortionists, Shelley Sella and Susan Robinson. Late-term abortions are long sometimes complex procedures, but the financial pay-off is great. Fees for post viability abortions can range from $5,000-$20,000, depending on the gestational age of the baby.

Live Action Carmen Landau abortion

An undercover sting conducted by Live Action quotes an unnamed counselor at the facility advising women to deliver their aborted babies in the toilet:

Abortion toilet Live Action

    “If we can’t catch it [delivery of the dead baby – the final stage of the abortion procedure] early enough, which has happened … then you’ll want to unlock the door to the hotel room, get your cell phone, and just sit on the toilet. You don’t have to look at anything … you can stay on the phone with us until the doctor and nurse get there”[.]

The video also shows an abortion counselor describing how she will inject the the 27-week preborn child claiming the child won’t will feel the lethal abortion injection. “[If the baby]’s bottom-down, it’ll insert through the baby’s bottom, [and] if it’s head-down, it’ll be inserted through the cranium.”

I don’t know if it’s developed enough to feel that,” she says. “It might be.”

Which brings me back to Shaver.

The abortion clinic consent form obtained by Shaver reveals that abortionist Boyd is collecting aborted baby body parts in the same way that Planned Parenthood has been caught doing.

Curtis Boyd abortion consent

The consent form from the second and third trimester abortion doctor tells women:

    “I understand that tissue and parts will be removed during the procedure, and I consent to their examination and their use in medical research and their disposal by the clinic and/or physician in the manner they deem appropriate.”

Curtis Boyd aborted baby body parts

This form gives us clear indication Southwestern Women’s Options could be harvesting and selling baby body parts in New Mexico. Of great concern as well is the fact that these baby body parts, in order to be harvested, must be free of digoxin.”

Southwestern Womens fetal tissue aborted baby body parts abortion

“Digoxin is actually the drug that is used to cause a fetal heart attack in the second and third trimester abortion procedures that are performed every single week in Albuquerque.

“This means that babies in the latest stages of pregnancy, are likely to be partially birthed and then killed in the womb or…being born alive,” Shaver states.

Shaver points out that the University of New Mexico also does abortions and is a research university.

Shaver obtained the consent form from SWO where the abortion business admits that abortions after 18 weeks are more dangerous than live birth, which contradicts regular pro-abortion talking points.

The undercover video exposing Planned Parenthood and produced by the Center for Medical Progress, has now gone viral, with several lawmakers calling for an investigation.

The shocking video shows top Planned Parenthood abortionist Deborah Nucatola explaining how she manipulates abortion procedures to ensure that specific heart, lungs, and other organs will be protected during the abortion procedure so they can be used for research.

Protest ABQ Planned Parenthood 2

In their press conference, Fr. Stephen Imbarrato of Priests for Life, Tara Shaver, Spokesperson for Protest ABQ, Pastor and Apostle Manny Lardizabal of New Mexico Heartland Apostolic Prayer Network, and Pastor Eric Lamb, Associate Pastor at Calvary Chapel of Albuquerque called for their state to not only investigate Planned Parenthood but Southwestern as well.

Recently, Eric Ferrero, vice president of communications for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, admitted that several Planned Parenthood abortion clinic’s participate in the trafficking of human baby body parts. In a response to the undercover video, Ferrero tried to make it look like a nice thing to do when he wrote :

Ericferrero0720_120px

    At several of our health centers, we help patients who want to donate tissue for scientific research, and we do this just like every other high-quality health care provider does — with full, appropriate consent from patients and under the highest ethical and legal standards. There is no financial benefit for tissue donation for either the patient or for Planned Parenthood. In some instances, actual costs, such as the cost to transport tissue to leading research centers, are reimbursed, which is standard across the medical field.”

Years ago, the New York Times looked into the marketing of aborted baby parts and discovered researchers often turned to abortion clinics for their “specimens.” read about that here.

Ambulance summoned to abortion clinic again – circuit abortionist Curtis Boyd travels between New Mexico and Texas

Posted in 911 calls, Abortion, abortion clinic safety, Abortion Clinic Worders, Abortion complication, Abortion death, Abortion injury, Abortion Regulation, Abortionist, Curtis Boyd with tags , , , , , , , , on October 5, 2011 by saynsumthn

Dr. Curtis Boyd is no stranger to controversy. In 1973, Boyd opened the Fairmount Center, which was the first abortion clinic in Texas. Boyd is the only doctor in North Texas who will perform late-term abortions to women up to six months pregnant.

In an interview with the Dallas WFAA station, the abortionist made a jarring admission. Am I killing?” Boyd said. “<em>Yes, I am. I know that.“

Here

In Dallas, Boyd opened the Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center on Greenville Avenue. Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center was founded by Boyd in 1973 as the Fairmount Center abortion clinic. Under this new licensure Boyd can now provide abortion services through 24 weeks of pregnancy.

Boyd also operates an abortion clinic in Albuquerque, New Mexico, under the same name: Southwestern Women’s Options.

According to Operation Rescue: Another woman has suffered complications from a botched abortion at Southwestern Women’s Options, a late-term abortion mill in Albuquerque, New Mexico, owned and operated by Curtis Boyd.

The latest 911 call obtained by Tara Shaver of Project Defending Life and released to Operation Rescue shows a 31-year old woman who is suffering uncontrolled bleeding after an abortion. The abortion clinic worker who placed the call requested that the patient be transport to the hospital.
This is the eleventh such abortion-related medical emergency at Southwestern Women’s Options in less than two years, and the fourteenth reported abortion emergency overall in Albuquerque in that same time frame.

Both Project Defending Life and Operation Rescue filed complaints about the recent flood of botched abortions with the New Mexico Medical Board (NMMB), but received mixed signals about whether an investigation would be conducted.

Since then, the Attorney General’s office has contacted NMMB’s Executive Director Lynn Hart, regarding the incidents, requesting her “assistance in handling this matter”.
In addition, members of Project Defending Life met with Gov. Susana Martinez to discuss the dangerous conditions that have spawned so many life-threatening abortion complications.
“Our concern is for the safety of women in New Mexico. We were encouraged to hear that Governor Martinez shares these same concerns. In fact, we were thoroughly impressed that the Governor’s office not only knew about the 911 calls, but had already contacted the Executive Director of the Medical Board to insure the investigation was progressing. We now have confidence that the New Mexico Medical Board is conducting a proper investigation,” said Fr. Stephen Imbarrato of Project Defending Life after the meeting.

“This latest abortion emergency further instills a new sense of urgency to the Medical Board’s ongoing investigation,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “It is obvious that Albuquerque abortion clinics are ill-equipped to handle complications that occur on a regular basis and are using paramedics as a back-up plan for when things go terribly wrong. This presents an unacceptable risk to public health. If Boyd and other abortionists insist on running unsafe abortion mills with high complication rates and a dangerous lack of access to emergency resources, then they should not be allowed to operate at all.”

Listen to 911 ambulance calls made from late term abortion clinic. Legal? maybe – Safe? no!

Posted in 911 calls, Abortion, Abortion Clinic Inspections, abortion clinic safety, Abortion Clinic Worders, Abortion complication, Abortion injury, Abortion Regulation, Ambulances, Curtis Boyd with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 8, 2011 by saynsumthn

7-8-2011
Albuquerque, NM – Operation Rescue has obtained a series of 911 calls placed from Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO) over a recent 15-month time span, which reveal a disturbing pattern of life-threatening abortion complications that routinely endanger the lives and health of women.

The first released 911 recording was placed on February 10, 2010. It indicates that SWO had just completed a second-trimester abortion on a 17-year old girl who suffered from a fever, a possible sign of infection, a rapid pulse, and uncontrolled bleeding.

“She just had the second tri procedure and she has a fever that’s spiking right now and then her pulse is up to 172 with some bleeding that they can’t get under control,” a SWO employee told the 911 dispatcher.

The call originated at 11:04 PM. The SWO employee told the dispatcher, “It looks like we’re closed, but we are in the office.”

“Secrecy is the order of the day at abortion clinics like this across the country. We seek to expose the truth about what goes on behind closed doors, under cover of darkness at these abortion mills so that women will be warned and the public will see that it is time for the grisly practice of abortion to end,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Recordings like this help us see the reality behind the abortionist’s empty rhetoric.”

Complications mentioned on other 911 recordings included uncontrolled uterine bleeding, an incident of “heavy hemorrhaging”, and a uterine rupture. All patients required emergency transport to local hospitals.

Former Kansas late-term abortionists Shelley Sella and Susan Robinson are employees of SWO, which is owned by Texas abortionist Curtis Boyd. It is believed that either Sella or Robinson was involved in the botched abortions on women ranging in age from 17 to 30.

“When Sella and Robinson worked at a now-closed late-term abortion mill in Wichita, we documented numerous botched abortions that landed women in the hospital. We predicted when they relocated to New Mexico, where there are few, if any safety rules, more women would suffer tragedy. That prediction has now come true,” said Newman.

“We have filed complaints against the abortionists at this clinic, Curtis Boyd, Susan Robinson and Shelley Sella, and have turned over the emergency transcripts for them to investigate. These abortionists present an obvious danger to the public and need to be held accountable for the injuries they are inflicting on unsuspecting women.”
