2014 Year In Review: Top 5 Highlights

2014 Year In Review: Top 5 Highlights

2014 Year In Review

It’s hard to believe that it’s that time of year again, a time to reflect and praise God for all that He has done. As pro-life missionaries we strive to heed God’s prompting and the Holy Spirit’s leading. This year has been chock full of EXPOSING and PROTESTING those who perpetuate abortion in New Mexico.

We continue to be amazed by how He refocuses our efforts and gives us the strength and endurance to continue moving forward to END the injustice of abortion.

Just this month as we arrived for family photos, we were surprised by who our photographer was. You may remember the story we shared back in 2010 about a 17 year old girl who was being pressured into an abortion by her family. Tara obtained the girl’s number and began texting her in the clinic, texting truth into her life along with pictures of what babies look like in the womb at 6weeks old.

This mom bravely walked out of Planned Parenthood and now her son is 3 years old with a one year old sister to boot! How awesome is our God that He works in the lives of the desperate and gives them a hope and a future. What a blessing for us to come face to face with living proof of the effectiveness of being faithful and obedient to God’s call.

Breaking Video! Ambulance Transports Woman from Late Term Abortion Facility

Breaking Video! Ambulance Transports Woman from Late Term Abortion Facility

By Tara Shaver

Albuquerque, NM- Protest ABQ just received footage from December 19, 2014 documenting an ambulance arriving at the controversial late term abortion clinic Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO), to transport a woman to the hospital during a botched abortion.

Abortionists Susan Robinson and Shelley Sella fly in alternate weeks from California to perform risky late term abortions which culminate in labor and delivery of a dead baby on Friday of each week.

Tara Shaver, of Protest ABQ confirmed that Shelley Sella was the abortionist on duty when this most recent call for paramedics occurred. This injury adds to Sella’s history of abortions that have gone seriously wrong, in fact on May 12, 2011 Sella sent a woman to the hospital from SWO during a 35 week abortion that ruptured the woman’s uterus. The New Mexico Medical Board failed to bring disciplinary action against Sella since there is no standard of care for abortion in New Mexico.

Abortion clinics in New Mexico fly under the radar of inspection and oversight since they are unregulated by the NM Department of Health.

This is the 17th known woman that has been transferred to the emergency room during a botched abortion from SWO since 2008. New Mexico has no minimum safety standards for abortion facilities.

“While abortion is never safe for mother or child, those who champion abortion in New Mexico cannot claim to care about women seeking abortions when these injuries continue to pile up without consequence,” stated Bud Shaver, Executive Director of Protest ABQ.

New Mexicans will have the opportunity to pass pro-life legislation in January 2015 after over 50 years of obstruction by radical pro-abortion politicians in the legislature. It is the hope of Protest ABQ that reasonable legislation will be introduced and sent to Governor Martinez’s desk to sign.

Video was taken by Abolitionist Society of Rio Rancho and produced by Protest ABQ.

Protest ABQ is a peaceful protest campaign launched to educate and stand against the injustice of abortion, through a strategic and sustained presence. We strive to reach deeper into our community and educate Albuquerque and New Mexico residents on what abortion really is. Protest ABQ is committed to end ‘Preborn’ Child Killing in ABQ and in NM. We protest most weekdays and every weekend!  For more information visit www.protestABQ.com

“We Are Committed to Ending Abortion In New Mexico”

“Everything we do and EVERY decision we make as Pro-Life Missionaries to New Mexico…It is with ONE goal in mind: ENDING abortion in New Mexico, and to GOD alone be the Glory!”

Dear Friends,

In the spirit of thanksgiving we want to reiterate to all of you how grateful we are for your continued support of our ministry here in New Mexico. It is our mission to expose the deeds of darkness in Albuquerque together with saving the lives of precious babies AND their moms, while proclaiming the name of Jesus Christ.

Even though beginning January 1, 2015 we will no longer be under Project Defending Life’s (PDL) banner, we will still be working alongside Fr. Imbarrato (Founder and former Director of PDL) maintaining his vision of Protest ABQ with the sole mission of ending abortion in New Mexico. Bud is still maintaining a presence at both the late term abortion clinic as well as UNM’s killing center AND organizing weekly high profile public awareness efforts to oppose and expose the radical abortion agenda entrenched in our city and state.

We will continue to pursue the “Abortion Free” strategy that Operation Rescue commissioned us here to implement. In fact, our efforts here in New Mexico are featured in their new book, Abortion Free: Your Manual for Building a Pro-Life America One Community at a Time.

Next year we ALSO plan to expand our outreach to the local school campuses, both high school and college, in an effort to reach the up and coming generation.

All that we do for the sake of saving lives from the atrocity of abortion, we do in the name of Jesus and to the glory of the Father. We are earnestly seeking to create a life affirming culture for OUR children. We will continue to run the race with confidence knowing that we did ALL that we could to righteously pursue justice in this state.

Thank you for standing with us in SO many different ways and we hope that you will CONTINUE to do so in the coming year. To Him who is able to do immeasurably more than we could ever ask or imagine, to Him…belongs ALL the glory!
