December Newsletter 2016: New Focus For 2017

December Newsletter 2016: New Focus For 2017

Dear Pro-Life Friend,

Greetings! November was an amazing month on many fronts. Locally we announced our new focus for the coming year: Catholic Democrat New Mexico Attorney General (AG), Hector Balderas.

We have teamed up with national organizations  Operation Rescue and Priests for Life to call on our Attorney General to investigate and prosecute the University of New Mexico and Southwestern Women’s Options for their involvement in the use of aborted baby remains, and more.

Even though a criminal referral has been handed down to AG Balderas from Congress, he has failed to act swiftly and pursue justice for the babies who are a mere commodity to the New Mexico abortion cartel.

The reality remains that New Mexico continues to be in the spotlight due to our non-existent laws on abortion, our leaders who support and condone abortion and the University of New Mexico’s entrenched abortion agenda.

Our message is clear, “Stand Up For The Babies and We Will Stand Down.” We want nothing more than for our leaders to do what is right, on their own, but the corruption runs deep…

In the coming months we will be prayerfully and peacefully exposing AG Balderas and holding him accountable for his poor leadership and for ignoring the plight of the pre-born children who die daily in his state.

Please join us in prayer that just as God moved the heart of Pharaoh to let his people go, that he would also move New Mexico Attorney General, Hector Balderas to place as a top priority protection for ALL children in New Mexico… including those who are, absolutely, the most vulnerable-those living in their mother’s wombs.

Hopeful Victory For Pre-Born Children In Our Country and New Mexico

We applaud Donald Trump for stepping into the arena and taking on the evil and corruption that has dominated American politics for some time now. Moving forward we must come together as a unified voice in our cities across this nation to make sure that Trump follows through with his campaign promises. We must not allow him to be like so many other leaders who say one thing to get elected and then fail to act to save the lives of pre-born children. We must all work harder to do what we can to stop the killing today by how we live our lives and obey God’s call to be salt and light in this world.

Victory in Valencia County: Sen. Michael Sanchez Has Fallen

We are proud to congratulate those in New Mexico Senate District 29 who successfully opposed pro-abortion Catholic Senator (D) Michael Sanchez who has dominated the NM senate and continuously ensured that pro-life bills never see the light of day. Protest ABQ set the stage for this monumental defeat this summer as we sent postcards to his constituents letting them know that he is putting politics before his faith. We also co-lead two key protests in this district leading up to election day. It is very encouraging to see others take our lead and be successful in protesting evil and corruption that has such a strangle hold in New Mexico.

This victory is a testimony to the power we as citizens have when we unify and expose evil outside of the four walls of our churches.

ABQ RAW Interview

A local videographer from ABQ RAW contacted us this month asking for us to do a video to educate the public about the ins and outs of Roe v. Wade and abortion in New Mexico.

He was surprised that the Christians he knew were clueless about the laws of our country regarding abortion and that many of them had no idea how abortion devastates entire families.

Tara met up with him where we keep the truth truck and had a great time talking with him and making an informative video.

Testimony From a Faithful Donor and Colaborer…

The definition of a champion is a person who fights or argues for a cause or stands up on behalf of someone else.   

I am writing you making an appeal on behalf of two champions that many of us have had the privilege of meeting and getting to know through the prolife community. Bud and Tara Shaver relocated to New Mexico to pursue the cause of ending abortion and protecting pre-born children from ending up as an abortion statistic in a state that allows the killing of children in the womb through all nine months of pregnancy.  How we came to this is another matter. But, God only knows how much we need champions like Bud and Tara. I don’t know of any other married couple who have devoted their lives in pursuit of something so difficult and yet so noble, right and good. And, they do this while raising a family of three children for which I don’t know how they manage.

What I do know is that they have advanced the cause of human life tremendously here in New Mexico and we should not take this for granted. Alongside, Father Stephen Imbarrato they have raised awareness of late term abortion and named who makes up the abortion cartel here in New Mexico. They have led countless protests, filed formal complaints with the New Mexico Medical Board and the Nursing Board, held numerous interviews with the press and their dedication to this cause has been written in many magazines and other publications.

They have sponsored pro-life legislation at the New Mexico state legislature and have even served as expert witnesses for pro-life bills. This in spite of the fact that our difficult political environment continues to support the abortion agenda.  They have met with Governor Susana Martinez and her staff numerous times to inform and urge her to lead the state in a positive direction. Because of her lack of leadership in ending abortion they have also worked to hold her accountable.  

Bud has shown up countless times, alone, standing on bridges over the freeway with signs strung along the bridge during the rain, wind and cold only to be harassed by people and the Department of Transportation. Bud has been physically attacked and has courageously stood up to outright evil in the eyes, words and actions of those who hate what he stands for and they hate him for having the determination and fortitude to remind them that children in the womb are deserving of life; after all, we were all living in the wombs of our mothers before we were born.

Their selfless giving is a standard that we should all try to measure up to and one way we can do that is to support their efforts through charitable giving so that they can continue to do this important work and we all know that it is difficult work. It is at times thankless, tiring, dangerous and not rewarding because of the many defeats through the culture of death that pervades our society and because of the women who still choose to kill their unborn babies. But, it is noble work that must go on.  

Many of us hold full time jobs that would make it impossible to do the incredible amount of pro-life work that they do every day.  But, I know that we all can give. We may not be able to give what we would like to every month.  But, I know that everyone who supports what Bud and Tara are doing can give monetarily each and every month. I suggest a gift of $25 that can be deducted from your checking account automatically so that you don’t have do anything to send it their way and likely will not miss it.

If you don’t believe that you can afford that then what can you give up so that you can afford it? Is it coffee at Starbucks, lunch with friends, getting rid of cable TV? You will have to make that decision but, I know if you are passionate about ending abortion in New Mexico that you will find a way to bless this couple with your charitable giving and pray that their efforts to end abortion will have the effect that we all want because they are doing what we cannot do. They depend on your generosity so let’s show them that we can be generous and that we truly appreciate all that they are doing.

God bless Bud and Tara Shaver and their three children and God bless each of you for your prayerful and generous monthly donation to them for all that they do.

-Janet
