Albuquerque, NM- Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life have compiled another video in their ongoing series to expose late term abortion in America. This latest undercover recording exposes how the late term abortion facility Southwestern Women’s Options arbitrarily differentiates between a baby and biohazard waste when discussing the disposal of the remains of the babies terminated at their facility.

New Mexico is the land of unrestricted abortion, there are no limitations on how late abortions can be performed. In addition, there is no fixed standard of determining which babies live or die, there are no abortion clinic safety standards and now Southwestern Women’s Options late term abortion facility has been found making a bizarre distinction between babies who are healthy and those with a fetal anomaly. This latest recording begs the question as to what the result of an abortion is, a dead baby or biohazard waste? …and who decides?

Southwestern Women’s Options tells a woman posing as 33 weeks pregnant, that they have a working relationship with Riverside Funeral Home, which will come to the abortion facility and collect the baby remains for cremation after the abortion. Staffers at both the funeral home and the abortion facility refer to the dead unborn children as “babies.”

However, the option to cremate the remains only applies to disabled babies. When another woman, 25 weeks pregnant, inquires about what happens to her healthy baby after her abortion, she is told that the remains are considered biohazard waste and that the whole baby is incinerated.

Cremation: the disposal of a dead person’s body by burning it to ashes.

Incineration: the destruction of something, especially waste material, by burning.

“To think that Southwestern Women’s Options is pitching cremation to women seeking late-term abortions in order to somehow buffer killing disabled babies while the other babies are incinerated as biohazard waste is schizophrenic,” said Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico. “Cremation, by definition, refers to what is done to a dead person’s body. It’s imperative that we, our leaders and every sane person speak out and act on behalf of these human babies who are being brutally killed each day in New Mexico.”

According to a quote attributed to Nazi propagandists during a regime that killed over 12 million people, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”

For more than 44 years in America, abortion profiteers and their supporters in politics and the media have insisted that abortion does not kill babies. This has resulted in over 60 million lives being terminated in American abortion businesses.

But as the abortionists themselves at Southwestern Women’s Options admit, they are killing babies even in the latest stages of pregnancy.

“Anyone with a conscience will be horrified by these recordings,” added Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. “They speak of fingerprints, toe-prints, baby clothes, photos, and funeral homes. These are things associated with human beings, and children who — once they’re born — we all agree should be protected. What is revealed here is an ongoing prejudice, discrimination, and oppression towards the children in the womb, and it must end.”

Albuquerque, NM- In part 4 of a 6 part series documenting the New Mexico Abortion Cartel, Abortion Free New Mexico (AFNM) takes a look at Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO), the nations largest late term abortion facility.

Southwestern Women’s Options advertises on it’s website, “Elective Abortions through 28 weeks… Later Abortion for Maternal and Fetal Indications.”

Previous reports by AFNM have revealed that SWO is drawing women from all across the world for barbaric full term abortions, thus making Albuquerque known nationally as the Late Term Abortion Capital.

This report pulls back the curtain on the abortion cartel in New Mexico that is self regulating with arbitrary standards because of the absence of any common sense legislation which would provide oversight and accountability that is so desperately needed.

The latest undercover recording released by Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life reveals just how arbitrary the standard is for determining which baby lives or dies at Southwestern Women’s Options.

Listen to the undercover recording here.

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director, Priests for Life issued the following statement,

“Once again, this undercover call reveals that abortions are taking place legally in our country even in the third trimester of pregnancy. We will continue to expose this evil in the weeks and months to come. We call on all Americans, including those who identify themselves as “prochoice,” to communicate to their legislators their opposition to these late term procedures, so that we can begin restoring protection to these children.”

In the first call to Southwestern, a caller posed as a woman who was pregnant with a baby who had been diagnosed with Down syndrome. Without hesitation she was given an abortion appointment, despite being 33 weeks pregnant.

In a second call, an undercover caller posed as a healthy woman pregnant with a 30-week healthy pre-born baby whom she has decided to abort because her husband lost his job.

The third calling, a minor posing as the victim of incest by an older family member is seeking a late-term abortion at 26 weeks of pregnancy. Instead of urging the sexual assault victim to contact the authorities – as required by law — the abortion clinic staff gives the young girl a phone number to the New Mexico Medicaid office so that she can obtain the $7,500 procedure for free.

The fourth call combines two earlier calls and adds new details, including that mothers so far advanced in their pregnancies should not be aborted in stand-alone clinics like Southwestern – although they are – and that the availability of third-trimester abortions depends on the “comfort” level of the abortionist.

“The bottom line is that SWO is willing to terminate a disabled child in spite of their own admission that late- term abortions shouldn’t be done in an outpatient clinic because they pose significant risks to mothers,” said Tara Shaver, spokeswoman for Abortion Free New Mexico.

“The ‘comfort’ zone of the abortionists at Southwestern Women’s Options, which appear to be based on an arbitrary eugenic standard, have ultimately led them to decide which babies should live or die. Barbaric late- term abortions are rejected by the majority of the American people because viable babies are being killed, and in our latest undercover recording, the abortion workers themselves admit that late-term abortions shouldn’t be performed because they are too dangerous for the women seeking them. New Mexico abortion facilities need oversight and accountability that comes from common-sense regulations,” Mrs. Shaver said.

Since 2010, Tara Shaver of AFNM with the help of Operation Rescue has documented at least 17 abortion related injuries inflicted upon women at Southwestern Women’s Options. At least one of these horrific injuries was the result of a late term abortion performed by abortionist Shelley Sella at 35 weeks of pregnancy. The pregnant woman from New York came to Albuquerque to have her baby killed because of a diagnosed fetal anomaly. Sella ignored the risks and committed four acts of gross negligence during the abortion that caused a ruptured uterus and required medical transport to a nearby hospital.

“The ‘comfort’ zone of the abortionists at Southwestern Women’s Options, that appear to be based on an arbitrary eugenic standard, have ultimately led them to decide which babies should live or die. Barbaric late term abortions are rejected by the majority of the American people because viable babies are being killed, and in our latest undercover recording, the abortion workers themselves admit that late term abortions shouldn’t be performed because they are too dangerous for the women seeking them. New Mexico abortion facilities need oversight and accountability that comes from common sense regulations,” said Tara Shaver, spokeswoman for Abortion Free New Mexico.

Part 3- Santa Teresa, NM: No Parent, No Problem 15 y/o TX Minor Obtains Abortion

Abortion Free New Mexico introduces Part 3 of a 6 Part Series exposing the New Mexico Abortion Cartel

By Bud Shaver, Abortion Free New Mexico

Santa Teresa, NM- In an undercover call placed on May 17, 2017 to Hill Top Women’s Reproductive Clinic in El Paso, TX the caller posing as a 15 year old minor inquires about obtaining an abortion without her parents involvement.

Without hesitation the abortion facility worker refers the young girl to their “other clinic location in Santa Teresa.” Located according to Hill Top Women’s Reproductive Clinic’s website, “Only 11 minutes from Downtown El Paso.” It’s as if this is one of the main reasons the Santa Teresa abortion facility located a few miles across the border in New Mexico exists.

An abortion appointment is secured for the following Saturday and all the minor is required to bring is $430.00 and her identification card.

New Mexico has become the place where abortionist Franz Theard, who owns two abortion facilities, one in El Paso, TX and the other in Santa Teresa, NM is circumventing reasonable Texas laws that were enacted to protect minors from sexual abuse.

At Hill Top Women’s Reproductive Clinic in Santa Teresa abortions are performed up to 10 weeks of pregnancy by administering RU486 to starve pre-born babies of the essential nutrient progesterone. These procedures are performed weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays according to clinic staff.

“Hill Top Women’s Reproductive Clinic is yet another example of abortion providers in New Mexico who ignore the best interests of minors who seek out an abortion. Minors are vulnerable and often the victims of sexual abuse, Franz Theard is enabling sexual predators when he purposefully takes advantage of New Mexico’s lack of common sense laws and circumvents the reasonable limitations of Texas,” said Tara Shaver, spokeswoman for Abortion Free New Mexico.

History of Violations in New Mexico and Texas

On July, 11 2013, Julie Aragon, the New Mexico Health Facility Compliance Officer with the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) program emailed Hill Top Women’s Reproductive Clinic in Santa Teresa because she noticed that their website stated that they offered lab services but the required CLIA certificate was not on file.

This email was not answered by Theard or his staff. On September 10, 2014, Julie Aragon visited the Santa Teresa location unannounced to investigate unauthorized testing. The official CLIA report noted the following violations and discrepancies:

  • Urine pregnancy tests and RH blood tests were being performed without required CLIA certification.
  • An open urine pregnancy test cassette was on the break room counter next to a small refrigerator. Blood reagents were also found in the refrigerator.
  • Failure to follow manufacturer’s instructions when checking Rh blood status in patients.
  • Failure to perform quality control measures daily.
  • Failure to maintain a log of patients tested onsite.
  • Failure to maintain copies of training, highest level of education, or competency assessments for testing personnel.
  • Failure to monitor refrigerator temperature where testing agents were kept.
  • Failure to maintain documentation of the lot numbers and expiration dates of pregnancy tests and blood reagents.

The CLIA program only ensures and monitors laboratory testing and has no jurisdiction over the surgical portion of abortion facilities. However, when a laboratory isn’t being run properly it begs the question, what other discrepancies the facility may have?

Since this location was not properly CLIA certified, all testing was halted until the certification was obtained.

In a 2015 a CLIA survey of Hill Top Women’s Reproductive Clinic in El Paso, Texas, documentation on AbortionDocs.org showed multiple violations including, a violation of the judicial bypass requirement for minors having an abortion as well as violating the requirement to verbally explain sonogram images to minors before they have an abortion.

Other violations included disregarding the 2 hour waiting period, failure to provide patients with local hospital information and failure to ensure that their equipment was properly sterilized.

Taking Life or Giving Life?

Franz Theard does abortions on certain days of the week and then delivers babies at local Texas hospitals on other days. He seems to be caught in between two worlds, and tries to keep them separate. Abortion Free New Mexico found a website for Theard’s OB/GYN practice that does not mention abortion at all. There is also an unofficial Facebook page where women often check in for prenatal appointments and ultrasounds.

On the other hand Hilltop Women’s Reproductive Clinic’s website boasts abortion services with the ability to bypass the Texas 24 hour waiting period.

“This report by Abortion Free New Mexico is only a glimpse inside of Franz Theard’s shoddy abortion operation that has creeped into New Mexico. Abortionist Franz Theard has a sordid history of abortion violations and our latest undercover recording reveals that Theard’s El Paso clinic is instructing minors how to obtain abortions in New Mexico in violation of Texas law. Franz Theard is living a double life in his practice by working in Texas hospitals delivering babies while simultaneously killing babies in both Texas and New Mexico. Theard has betrayed true medicine and is currently capitalizing on New Mexico’s lack of the most basic laws regulating abortion,” stated Tara Shaver.
