Press Conference Thursday, November 29th at 10:00am at the New Mexico Medical Society

November 29th,

Albuquerque, NM- The New Mexico Medical Board is acting on complaints filed by Tara Shaver of  Project Defending Life and Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue by holding a hearing for late term abortionist Shelley Sella on Thursday, November 29th. Medical Board documents state that Sella violated the standard of care by conducting the dangerous 35-week abortion in a clinic setting instead of a hospital and gross negligence by disregarding the patient’s history of a previous Caesarean Section delivery. A Caesarean Section weakens the uterus, increasing the risks of rupture during subsequent labors. Sella is also accused of over-using uterine stimulants, which contributed to the life-threatening rupture. The hearing will determine what, if any, disciplinary action the Board will take, which could include suspension or revocation of Sella’s New Mexico medical license.

“Women come to Albuquerque from all over the US seeking late-term abortions that are illegal elsewhere only to be placed in grave danger by the negligent incompetence of Shelley Sella. Full term abortions are barbaric and dangerous acts that have no place in a civilized society. When you add in an abortionist that carelessly ignores serious health risk factors, you have a public health disaster. The New Mexico Medical Board is correct to institute disciplinary proceedings against Sella and we call on the Board to revoke Sella’s medical license in the interest of public safety.” Cheryl Sullenger, Operation Rescue

Even though the hearing is closed to the public Tara Shaver and Cheryl Sullenger will be holding a press conference Thursday November 29th at 10:00am at the New Mexico Medical Society located at 316 Osuna Rd NE in Albuquerque.

We are thankful for…

Answered prayer. As you probably know by now one of our main prayers has been for more workers for this ripe harvest. The harvest of saving moms and babies from the horror of abortion. God has provided more workers from New Mexico’s largest church, Calvary Chapel ABQ. Pastor Eric Lamb recently launched the Pro-Life Movement 9 Months at Calvary ABQ.  This movement is bigger than just a Calvary movement and we look forward to more Christians and Churches stepping up and following Calvary ABQ’s example of faithfulness in the coming year! Here is the latest video done by a dear friend of ours that highlights the broadcast of Calvary’s own radio station’s coverage of the latest 40 Days for Life campaign. This broadcast is a great example of how to get the word out and shine light into this dark world.

We are thankful for…

Both Project Defending Life and Operation Rescue who have blessed us in so many ways. Project Defending Life has been a tremendously blessing to us throughout the 2 years we have been serving here, it means so much to always have them as a partner in the effort to help moms keep their babies. We have learned so much from those at Operation Rescue and it has been a blessing to have them come along side us in our ministry here in New Mexico. Both organizations have been an invaluable resource to our ministry!

May God Bless all of you in your efforts to serve Christ in your communities!

PRESS RELEASE: New Mexico Abortionist Faces Discipline for Botched 35 Week Abortion

By, Operation Rescue 

November 12, 2012

Albuquerque, NM – Acting on complaints filed by Operation Rescue and Project Defending Life, the New Mexico Medical Board (NMMB) has filed a Notice of Contemplated Action alleging gross negligence against late-term abortionist Shelley Sella during a 35-week abortion that landed the woman in the hospital with a ruptured uterus.

“Shelley Sella has a long and sordid history. We have been looking forward to the day when she would be held accountable for her abortion abuses. That day has finally arrived,” said Cheryl Sullenger, Senior Policy Advisor for Operation Rescue.

The abortion took place on May 12, 2011. Tara Shaver of Project Defending Life obtained a copy of the 911 call placed that day, which revealed incriminating details of the medical emergency. Mrs. Shaver worked with Operation Rescue to file a series of complaints that resulted in the Board’s action.

A hearing will be held on November 29-30 to determine what, if any, disciplinary action the Board will take, which could include suspension or revocation of Sella’s New Mexico medical license.

NMMB documents state that Sella wrongly conducted the dangerous 35-week abortion in a clinic setting instead of a hospital and disregarded the patient’s history of a previous Caesarean Section delivery. A Caesarean Section weakens the uterus, increasing the risks of rupture during subsequent labors. Sella is also accused of over-using uterine stimulants, which contributed to the life-threatening rupture.

Sella is a former associate of the late George Tiller, having worked for him at his infamous late-term abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas. After that clinic closed in 2009, Sella went to work for Curtis Boyd at Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque, New Mexico, an affiliate of the troubled National Abortion Federation, conducting the same grisly late-term abortion procedure she learned in Wichita.

Sella cancelled her Kansas medical license the same week the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts notified Operation Rescue that a disciplinary petition had been filed against one of Sella’s Kansas co-workers, Ann Kristin Neuhaus, who had provided improper late-term abortion referrals to Tiller’s abortion clinic.

Testimony taken during Neuhaus’ disciplinary hearings indicated that late-term abortions done in Kansas by Sella were in fact illegal. The KSBHA revoked Neuhaus’ medical license, but because Sella had previously surrendered her license, she was outside their jurisdiction and avoided accountability for her actions.

Sella also works as an abortionist for Planned Parenthood in California.
