Inside New Mexico Reproductive Health abortion clinic

In an effort to give the citizens of New Mexico a real look into the state’s abortion industry a pro-life group has put together years of shocking research and presented it to state lawmakers. Life Ministries NM, founded by Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, compiled the information into a 45 minute video which debuted at the State Capital in Santa Fe to New Mexico legislators with the hope that principled politicians will sponsor and pass uncompromising pro-life legislation. New Mexico is one of a few places in the world which allows unrestricted abortions after 24 weeks.

According to Tara Shaver, Senior Policy Advisor for Life Ministries the group of approximately 100 pro-lifers filled the rotunda at the State Capitol January 26th just days after the anniversary of the infamous Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion on demand. Life Ministries NM said the video included footage from Live Action’s investigations as well as reports from Operation Rescue and undercover phone calls compiled by local activists.

Shaver said that she had previously attempted to show lawmakers footage of numerous emergency 911 calls to NM abortion facilities but her efforts were quickly shut down by the 2015 committee chairman. Pro-life State Senator Craig Brandt who’s bill requiring abortionists to have hospital admitting privileges was tabled that same year joined Shaver and Fr. Imbarrato in their presentation.

Life Ministries NM said that after inviting several lawmakers to view the full 45 minute footage many were seen at the video’s unveiling. The pro-life said they have plans to make the full investigative footage public. The first of the 3 part series, focuses on Albuquerque’s late term abortion facility, Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO). According to Life Ministries NM, SWO is called a “Reproductive Health Center” but they claim that the clinic doesn’t offer services other than abortions. “They don’t do well women exams, STD testing or even have the ability to detect a potentially life threatening ectopic pregnancy,” Shaver said.

“SWO is also caught showing how professional their health services are to women in footage obtained by Live Action when they send late term abortion patients to local hotels,” she added and then asked, “Does healthcare really consist of instructing women to unlock their hotel door until the abortionist arrives and in the meantime push your dead baby into the toilet?”

Watch part one below:

According to Life Ministries NM, “New Mexico is currently one of 17 states that has medicaid funded abortions using state tax dollars. Part 2 delves into tax funding of abortions in New Mexico and the shocking revelation of how much Late-Term abortions cost the taxpayers…$8,000-$16,000 the price for a baby’s life!”

New Mexico needs a Late-Term Abortion Bill with NO exceptions for rape, incest, or health.

Video: Why New Mexico Needs A Late-Term Abortion Bill With NO Exceptions

By Bud Shaver, Executive Director of Protest ABQ

Fr. Stephen Imbarrato explains why New Mexico needs a Late-Term Abortion Bill with NO exceptions for rape, incest, or health.

Fr. Stephen Imbarrato with Priests for Life and founder of several pro-life ministries in New Mexico including: Life Ministries NM, Protest ABQ, and Project Defending Life released the following statement:

“I am very excited about the plan laid out by the [Senate-NM] to get a late term abortion ban passed in New Mexico. It is my hope that it is a bill that has no exceptions. I made it clear last year and again this year to the sponsors of the bill that I cannot support a bill with exceptions. Rape, incest, and health of the mother exceptions are not tolerable in pro life legislation. It is important that our Catholic leadership insist that our Catholic legislators support a late term ban with no exceptions. I recently submitted a ban bill to appropriate parties without exceptions that is law in 20 states. Let us unite around a late term ban with no exceptions.”

Father Stephen is a priest with the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, ordained 10 years as a late life vocation. Fr Stephen has been given permission to do full-time national pro-life ministry and is currently a member of the Pastoral Staff of Priests for Life. Fr Stephen is the founder of several pro-life ministries including St Gerard’s CPC in Connecticut and Project Defending Life also Protest ABQ in New Mexico.

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

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.

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.”

“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.
