A pro-life group in New Mexico has filed a formal complaint with the State’s Nursing Board accusing a nurse of performing abortions in violation of state law. Protest ABQ, say that they uncovered documentation showing that registered nurse Vivianne Clark (license number RN-71112) performed several abortions, some late term, in violation of state law which requires that only licensed physicians perform abortions. The pro-life group also claims that Clark is employed by Planned Parenthood of New Mexico.

Tara Shaver, spokesperson for ProtestABQ told Saynsumthn that New Mexico law states that only licensed physicians can perform abortions. Shaver said they discovered the alleged illegal abortions through an IPRA request for Medicaid data since New Mexico is one of 17 states that uses state money for abortions and report on the numbers annually. “You can see from the Medicaid data that she is doing 1st and 2nd trimester abortions up to 24 weeks,” Shaver said.

Shaver sent Saynsumthn a copy of the report. It was dated 2013 and entitled: New Mexico Pregnancy Terminations Paid in Calendar Year 2013, noting that some of the services were performed in 2012, but were paid through Medicaid Managed Care Organizations. An analysis of the report shows that Medicaid paid a total of $160,007.51 for 811 abortions. The report listed several abortion doctors including Curtis Boyd, a late term abortionist who operates in Albuquerque. In the report, Boyd was paid for several abortions he performed between 17 to 24 weeks.

Vivianne M. Clark is also listed as receiving payments for abortions. In 2013, Clark received a total of $10,396.12 for 81 abortions, a majority which were performed between 17 and 24 weeks.

    $6203.22 for 34 Induced Abortions – 17-24 Weeks
    $2470.03 for 12 Induced abortion – 17 to 24 weeks

    $1236.45 for 14 Mifepristone oral 200 mg abortions
    $122.13 for 20- Misoprostol oral 200 mcg abortions

According to ProtestABQ, the Medicaid data they obtained through a public records request indicates that New Mexico taxpayers have footed the bill for over 200 illegal abortions performed by Vivianne Clark. And, reports provided to ProtestABQ show that Vivianne Clark was paid for abortions as far back as 2012.

Although the location where the abortions were performed is not noted on the reports, Shaver said that Clark is a nurse who works at Planned Parenthood of New Mexico ( Operated by: Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, Inc.) pointing to this online business listing showing Clark as a Planned Parenthood nurse practitioner.

Listings at this website show 2 Planned Parenthood locations where Clark allegedly works. A search on the New Mexico Medical Board website which provides and maintains physician data as part of its official website, shows that there is no licensed physician by the name of Vivianne Clark:

“It just so happens that the only law in New Mexico apparently not being enforced says that only physicians can perform abortions. She is violating a criminal statute and the penalty is a 4th felony,” Shaver said.

The New Mexico Board of Nursing has confirmed receiving the complaint and say it has been referred it to the board’s investigators, according to the Albuquerque Journal.

A copy of the formal complaint filed with the New Mexico Board of Nursing reads in part:

    I have attached proof that Ms. Clark has been reimbursed by New Mexico Medicaid from 2013 to 2013 for abortions she performed in the first and second trimesters, up to 24 weeks of pregnancy.Ms. Clark's actions are in violation of the New Mexico Criminal Abortion Statute (§ 30-5-1, et seq.)

    I respectfully request that the Board of Nursing investigate this matter in the interest of public safety and that you take appropriate action against Ms. Clark, including revocation of her license if warranted, for her violation of New Mexico law.

Planned Parenthood has denied the charges.

“It is a disturbing fact that New Mexicans are funding an illegal abortionist through NM medicaid. The over 200 abortions that we have been able to document, based on the NM medicaid data, are only the tip of the iceberg as far as the total number of abortions Vivanne Clarke has performed over the years in clear violation of New Mexico law,” states Bud Shaver, executive director of Protest ABQ in a statement regarding their complaint.

“We are calling upon the New Mexico Nursing Board to do a thorough investigation to get to the bottom of this. Based on what we can already prove, Vivianne Clarke’s nursing license should be revoked immediately,” he added.

Post cards expose who is responsible for UNM’s abortion business, says pro-life group

Posted in Protest ABQ with tags , , , , , , , on March 28, 2016 by saynsumthn

A New Mexico pro-life group has just released post cards (image below) to expose who they believe to be behind the abortion business going on at the University of New Mexico. The post card features Dr. Paul Roth and Dr. Eve Epsey.

Epsey was appointed chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB-GYN) at the University of New Mexico in 2014 is also the president of the Society for Family Planning.

Epsey has also been “honored” by the Physicians for Reproductive Health for which she is a former board member along with abortionist Curtis Boyd who ran a training program at the UNM. Epsey was also a 2014 recipient of Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award, named after was the advocate of eugenics who founded the abortion business.

Paul ROth EPsey POst Card
​This postcard will be delivered by mail to multiple Albuquerque neighborhoods this weekend. The University of New Mexico is a publicly funded institution and the community deserves to know who is responsible for UNM’s radical abortion agenda.

    Bud and Tara Shaver who founded Protest ABQ, said that in 2010 the University of New Mexico placed Dr. Paul Roth in charge of their governing board. Dr. Roth is listed as the chancellor of the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center and dean of the School of Medicine, on the school’s website.

    According to a report filed by Tara Shaver, in 2007, UNM launched its free-standing abortion clinic, the UNM Center for Reproductive Health (UNMCRH), which conducts abortions up to 22 weeks gestation, or over half way through pregnancy.

      In addition to this off-campus freestanding abortion clinic, there is also a clinic on campus performing abortions up to 11.5 weeks gestation. Known as the Family Practice Center, it offers specialized services in ObGyn through the Department of Family Practice at UNM.

      Essentially UNM is running two abortions clinics…

      UNM is currently one of 68 universities that participate in the Kenneth J. Ryan Residency Program in Abortion and Family Planning. The Ryan Program, founded in 1999, is a national initiative whose mission is to embed abortion training into residency programs throughout the United States and Canada.

    In 2014, members of Project Defending Life met with UNM Regents, including the Board of Regents President Jack Fortner, and the Health Sciences Center Dean, Paul Roth, to express concerns about the blatant disregard for human life at UNM. Unfortunately, those meetings were to no avail.

    Now, according to Shaver, “The University of New Mexico (UNM) Board of Regents is attempting to dissolve the Health Sciences Center (HSC) board and demote Dr. Paul Roth (godfather of abortion at UNM).

      Could it be that the UNM Regents realize that the Health Sciences Center (HSC) under Dr. Paul Roth’s control has taken the UNM Health system in the wrong direction with Roth’s radically pro-abortion agenda?

    According to the New Mexico Political Report:

      [UNM Regents Rob Doughty] Doughty and [Marron] Lee’s authored changes removed Roth’s full oversight authority over HSC property, finances, staff and legal matters and subjected them to approval of UNM President Frank.

      Shortly before the Regents made a vote, Roth told the public that UNM President Frank would immediately reinstate Roth’s role as CEO. After the vote, Roth said in a statement that he was “grateful” to Frank “for clarifying that I will continue as CEO of the UNM Health System, with all of the responsibilities and authorities commensurate with that.”

      Doughty also told reporters after the vote that Roth stays in charge of the “day-to-day operations” of HSC. Still, an HSC spokesman told NM Political Report last week that HSC press relations were in the process of learning “what that entails.”

    Protest ABQ has released a statement that although the move is in the right direction, having Roth who allowed these abortion facilities at the University to continues in any roll is just not acceptable and reads:

    Back of Postcard

    Back of Postcard

    Some have criticized the UNM regents for acting so quickly to re-adjust leadership at UNM (even GOP leadership) by giving the President of the University, Robert Frank, appropriate authority while bringing Paul Roth more under control. It has been said that for the past five years the University has had two heads, these changes have “removed Roth’s full oversight authority over HSC property, finances, staff and legal matters and subjected them to approval of UNM President Frank.”

    For 5 years we have been exposing and applying pressure to those with the ability to end the abortion agenda at UNM. Whether the motivation for change at UNM was rooted in money, a new hospital or damage control due to Paul Roth’s leadership…It is hard for us to ignore the fact that UNM is currently under a congressional investigation regarding the use of fetal tissue and it’s abortion agenda has become widely known during Dr. Paul Roth’s tenure.

    It seems as though UNM leadership is moving in the right direction in order to make substantial change, however, Dr. Paul Roth is still the motivating force behind their radical abortion agenda. As Dean of the School of Medicine Roth was the highest authority in giving abortionist Eve Espey the promotion to Chair of the Obgyn department, even though her agenda is to promote abortion here and abroad. Espey also received the Margaret Sanger award in 2014.

    In order for UNM to completely abandon their pro-abortion agenda, a few things must be done. Roth and Espey must be terminated and now President Frank has the authority to bring the matter to the Regents for their approval. We are asking the public to contact President Frank and ask him to urge the regents to terminate the contracts of both Espey and Roth.

    Please join us in contacting UNM President Robert Frank

    *ACGME accreditation does not require that universities have their own free standing abortion facility

    “Not only does UNM embrace abortion and run a free standing abortion facility in Albuquerque performing abortions up to 22 weeks of pregnancy, they have also recently been caught red handed using aborted baby body parts in medical research. Are you comfortable with your tax dollars being used to kill and experiment on pre-born babies?”

    Please contact UNM President Robert Frank and ask him to urge the Board of Regents to terminate the contracts of Dr. Paul Roth and Dr. Eve Espey.

Panel issues subpoenas in aborted baby body parts investigation

Posted in Aborted Baby Body Parts, Center for Medical Progress, National Abortion Federation, stem Express with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 19, 2016 by saynsumthn

The chair of a U.S. House investigative panel has announced that they have issued subpoenas to obtain documents regarding the possible sale of aborted baby body parts. The investigation follows a 2015 University of New Mexico (UNM) research study obtained by New Mexico Alliance for Life (NMAFL) which detailed “how aborted baby liver and kidney tissue [was] harvested from ‘six fetuses,’ only 15 minutes after the abortion procedure.”

Fetal Body parts Curtis Boyd abortion

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN)who chairs the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives, said the panel plans to subpoena the University New Mexico (UNM) and the late term abortion facility South Western Options (SWO). The Panel, which consists of both Republican as well as Democrat members, falls under the jurisdiction of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce and has been tasked to gather information and get the facts about medical practices of abortion service providers and the business practices of the procurement organizations who sell baby body parts, according to their website.

Rep. Blackburn’s office told Live Action News that the Majority Staff of the Select Investigative Panel has sent more than 30 letters requesting documents. Those letters all asked for information to be provided voluntarily.

“By failing to fully cooperate with our investigation, these organizations have compelled our panel to subpoena these documents in order to acquire information that is vital to the completion of our work,” Chairman Blackburn stated.

“Without these subpoenas, the American people and the House itself would be left to speculate about what is going on in the fetal tissue industry. We cannot leave questions unanswered,
” she added.

As Live Action News has previously reported, SWO is located in Albuquerque and operated by abortionist Curtis Boyd, who served as a UNM “assistant professor” and has been working with UMN for ten years. UNM’s health science center (UNMHSC) which reportedly used the fetal tissue for their research recently halted a training program using abortionists from SWO.

According to a consent form obtained by local pro-lifer Tara Shaver, the remains of babies aborted at Southwestern Women’s Options, are automatically used in research. “Since the “consent” for research is buried in the same consent form for the abortion, it is doubtful many women even realize their babies are being turned into fodder for laboratory experimentation,” reports Operation Rescue which investigates abortion clinic nationwide.

In January, the New Mexico Alliance for Life obtained a letter which they say confirmed that abortionist Boyd “facilitates” the, “collection of aborted baby body parts such as hearts, lungs, heads, livers, aortas, brain tissue, etc. from his late-term abortion clinic to the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center.”

The letter read in part:

    “I have reviewed and been kept up to date on your research and feel that the use of fetal tissue continues to be appropriate for your studies. Therefore I will continue to facilitate your collection of samples from my clinic. following the usual inspection of the tissue…”

Boyd, who once admitted that he is “killing” states on his website, that he was involved in establishing the National Abortion Federation (NAF) and is a founding member of the Federation’s Board of Directors.

CMP Planned Parenthood Stem Express NAF

NAF is seeking a permanent gag order against the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) whose undercover investigation exposed how the abortion industry haggles over the prices of the babies they abort. The abortion provider organization is seeking to prevent the release of footage from their annual conferences in 2014 and 2015, claiming fraud. A recently released tape, by CMP appears to show an alliances between the National Abortion Federation, Planned Parenthood, and abortion providers in regards to fetal tissue procurement.

Cassy Fiano, of Live Action News reviewed the tape and reported that in the video, NAF’s training and education coordinator, Sandy Fulkerson, floats the idea of a “group purchasing program” offered through NAF membership, where participating abortion facilities would supply aborted fetal tissue to buyers, and then split the profits. Fulkerson admits the abortion group “knows somewhere” where large quantities of fetal tissue are “available.” Another NAF supporter then chimes in that the financial rewards are a “win-win” for both parties, Fiano writes.

In addition to SWO and UNM, the panel has also issued a subpoena to obtain documents from StemExpress, (the infamous fetal parts procurement company exposed in CMP’s videos), for failing to dully cooperate with document requests. CMP videos show the biotech company’s CEO, Cate Dyer, boasting, “I have a picture from Hillary” Clinton on her desk. In another video, she jokes about shipping the fully intact bodies of aborted babies to unsuspecting lab technicians.

Last year, House Energy and Commerce Committee leaders sent a letter to StemExpress requesting briefings and information regarding their practices relating to human fetal tissue collection, sale, and/or donation. When asked why the Select Investigative Panel issued the subpoena against Stem Express, Chairman Blackburn told Live Action News:

    StemExpress brought the subpoena upon themselves by redacting critical information.

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.

Life Ministries MN state house abortion 2

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 MN state house abortion

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?”

According to Life Ministries NM, “New Mexico is currently one of 17 states that has medicaid funded abortions using state tax dollars.

Hospital halts training program with late term abortion clinic which provides “fetal tissue”

Univ NM

A New Mexico University has halted a training program using doctors from a late term abortion clinic which provides the University with fetal tissue for research. The Albuquerque Journal newspaper has reported that the University of New Mexico (UNM), which is a publicly-funded institution, has cut ties with Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO), a late-term abortion facility owned by Texas abortionist Curtis Boyd and has been the subject if a previous undercover sting conducted by Live Action. The abortionist is one of a handful of doctors in the country that performs abortions in the third trimester. He claims to be a former Baptist minister and admits that he knows he “is killing.” Southwestern Women’s has a location in Dallas and one in Albuquerque.

curtisboyd

Pro-lifers Tara and Bud Shaver who founded the pro-life group, ProtestABQ, have diligently exposed the late term clinic for years. In July, Tara Shaver filed a formal criminal complaint with the Attorney General of New Mexico asking for a complete and thorough investigation of Boyd’s clinic following revelations that Planned Parenthood was taking part in a gruesome baby parts operation. Shaver indicated Boyd was also using the body parts of babies he aborted for research. She based her allegations on documents obtained by prolifewitness.org indicating SWO staff members are, “ in fact, harvesting baby body parts for use in medical research.”

The documents included copies Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO) informed consent paperwork which every abortion patient must sign indicating that Boyd and (SWO) may be using aborted babies in medical research.

2015-abortion-consent-Fetal-SWO-Curtis-Boyd

The 2015 consent form (image above) states:

    “I understand that the pregnancy tissue will be removed from my body during this procedure. The pregnancy tissue may be examined here at the Clinic and the Clinic doctors may dispose of the tissue according to the law. The pregnancy tissue may be used for medical research.”

This consent form from 2012 (image below) says, “tissue and parts will be removed during the procedure.”

2012-Abortion-Consent-Southwestern-abortion-Boys-fetal-harvest

The form goes on to state, “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.”

Protest ABQ pointed out that New Mexico has a law prohibiting the selling of body parts. But despite the law, UNMH officials admitted to the Journal that they have been accepting fetal tissue from Boyd’s clinic for a decade claiming the abortionist is not paid for the baby body parts. In addition, Dr. Richard Larson, executive vice chancellor and vice chancellor for research at the UNMHSC, the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, told the Journal that Boyd’s clinic is the school’s only supplier of fetal tissue.

To justify the use of dead children in the late gestational age, Larson told the Journal that the “fetal tissue” they collect from Boyd will, “reduce the mortality of premature babies, especially these extremely premature babies.” Officials also claim that their grisly research will reduce the likelihood of blindness, cognitive defects and other anomalies found in newborns between 24 and 30 weeks, the same age as the babies Boyd kills. In a May 2015 letter to UNMH, the Journal reports that Boyd specified that in abortions of less than 20 weeks, his doctors use “aspiration, dilation and evacuation.” Abortions after 20 weeks involve “feticide” by injecting the fetus with the drug Digoxin, Boyd’s letter states.

Images: Albuquerque Journal

University officials still find the use of “fetal tissue” acceptable. What they are now publicly distancing themselves from is their training program with Boyd’s clinic and fellow abortionists staff who were described as “faculty” under the training agreements with UNM. The decision by UNMHSC officials to no longer send medical fellows or residents to Boyd’s clinic, follows a letter from New Mexico state Rep. Rod Montoya and other legislators who questioned top Health Sciences Center officials last July about the relationship with Boyd’s clinic and the use of “body parts” from women who have abortions there, the paper states. Montoya told the Journal that the argument could be made that the residents and fellows were helping the clinic augment its staffing for abortions.

“Initially, it had the appearance of being a transaction of sorts,” Montoya said, according to the Journal. “Of staffing in return for the body parts. That’s the appearance, and I informed them, ‘that’s how it appears to me,’ ” adding that he is concerned that there is no oversight of abortion clinics in the state.

“We know that the vast majority of New Mexicans believe we should not have a free-for-all when it comes to abortion
,” the Representative said.

In addition to the using fetal tissue for research in New Mexico a former employee of Boyd’s testified that he also had an agreement with the Director of Fetal Research at the University of Texas Health Science Center to use “large babies” for fetal research there. The former staffer, Nita Whitten, made this statement at a “Meet the Abortion Providers” workshop sponsored by the Pro-life Action League of Chicago, directed by Joe Scheidler:

“One thing that happened at the clinic that I worked at that was incredibly devastating, right before I left. Dr. Boyd had made an agreement with a doctor, and I cannot name this doctor because I just don’t think it would be wise to name him today, but he was the Director of Fetal Research at the University of Texas Health Science Center at that time. He had made an agreement with this doctor to give him our large babies for him to do fetal research on. They did this, and I believe at the time, it was against the law. I don’t know if it is now, and I’m not familiar with the legal terms because I’m not a lawyer, but I remember we were told not to tell anyone, and they only came in secret to get the babies…He had them come in and they dissected a baby for us in our lab room so we could see what they were doing with the body parts. They did that right there and everybody filed in and looked. I looked at it. I pretended like I was being brave and walked out. It made me sick.”

Bud Shaver described the University’s “fetal tissue research” program as unethical and immoral and said that he is now calling for them to cut all ties with the late term abortion doctor, “The University of New Mexico (UNM) has been caught red handed trafficking and using baby body parts for their medical research,” he told Saynsumthn.

“This is unethical and immoral which is why Protest ABQ is calling for UNM to cut all ties with Curtis Boyd at Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO) which is their sole provider of baby remains. The fact that the residency training rotation has been stopped at SWO is merely a bandaid on the bigger problem which is UNM’s overall radical abortion agenda which is what Protest ABQ is demanding UNM to halt,” he added.

Pro-life group to Mayor: Work on removing late term abortion reputation instead of silencing pro-life people

Posted in Protest ABQ with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 29, 2015 by saynsumthn

The Mayor of a New Mexico city has called out a pro-life group for showing the truth of abortion and they replied by accusing the mayor of doing nothing to end late term abortions in their city.

ProtestABQ recently drove their pro-life “truth truck” into the Albuquerque neighborhood of Democratic City Council Candidate Pat Davis to expose how he supports killing children in the womb and what that looks like.

Truth Tructh Protest ABQ

Mayor Richard Berry, who calls himself pro-life, is getting heat from residents who say they do not want the images in their neighborhood.

So, instead of calling out the pro-abortion politician, the mayor posted a YouTube video to call for ProtestABQ to stop driving their truth trucks into Davis’ neighborhood.

Mayor Richard Berry

    “What I’m doing today is asking them to stop that activity,” he said.

    “There’s nothing we can find that would legally stop them from doing this,” Berry said. “But I’m standing up as a mayor and asking them to advocate for a position, but in a way that’s respectful for our kids in our community, Mayor Berry told KRQE.

Tara Shaver, spokesperson for ProtestABQ responded to the Mayor’s video:

    “The reason why Protest ABQ has resorted to what some people consider extreme tactics is a direct result of Mayor Berry’s lack of action regarding the out of control abortion industry and his very own city. Mayor Berry as well as our self proclamined pro-life Governor Susana Martinez have not lifted one finger to save even one preborn child’s life but instead allow children to be subjected to the brutal action the images we use capture. Instead of trying to silence and trample on our First Amendment constitutional rights, Mayor Berry should work on removing Albuquerque’s shameful reputation of being the late term abortion capital of the nation. Instead of siding with pro-choice interests he should work to fulfill the responsibilities that his constituents elected him to fulfill.”

Shaver is referring to the late term abortion facility operated by abortionist Curtis Boyd. Protest ABQ recently accused Boyd’s Southwestern Women’s Options of possibly being involved in gruesome baby parts harvesting operations.

sws-options1-497x280-1-320x198

While the media has been all over this story they refuse to show the public the truth of what abortion looks like. And now, thanks to this Mayor they are focusing more on the images than on the kids that are being slaughtered by abortion.

Meanwhile, the pro-abortion council hopeful called the tactic intimidation adding, “I don’t believe for a minute that city hall has any business getting between a woman and her doctor on medical issues, so we’ll just have to agree to disagree.”

Davis complained about the protest on his Facebook page, writing:

    For the second day in a row, my neighbors (and their kids) have endured these protests because I don’t believe city council has any business getting between a woman and her doctor.

    “Everyone has a right to participate in the political process, but this is unnecessary. Help me send a message by voting early (open now!) and volunteering to turn out our neighbors to vote.”

While a few people liked the post and approved of Davis’ pro-abortion position, one reasonable resident asked him a pointed question, writing,”Reality is gruesome to look at sometimes. Why are the images of what is going on more offensive than the actual activities?”

The trucks are not the only way ProtestABQ is getting out the message that Pat Davis is pro-abortion.

Earlier this month, they sent Albuquerque residents graphic mailers also exposing Davis’ abortion positions.

The message read:

    Pat Davis: Too extreme for City Council District 6, and you can expect more of this if he’s elected.
    Davis champions this…

Pat Davis ABQ abortion mailer

According to Bud Shaver, the mailer was meant to be graphic because, as the mailer states:

    While Davis claims to be “progressive” he really champions archaic practices such a late-term abortion. Davis will not bring progress to ABQ but instead, he will ensure that barbaric late-term abortions will continue in our city.

    A vote for Pat Davis is a vote against the women and children of Albuquerque.

The residents of Albuquerque deserve to know where aspiring politicians stand on pre-born child killing,” Shaver added.

The election will be held October 6th.

Protest ABQ has worked tirelessly in New Mexico to close the infamous Southwestern Women’s Options late term abortion facility operated by abortionist Curtis Boyd. They have also worked to pass strict abortion laws educating the public with truth trucks that show what abortion does to unborn babies.

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.

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

    “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.

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.”

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.

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 :

    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.
