Sen. Brown: Will you vote to save healthy babies from abortion?

Sen. Brown: Will you vote to save healthy babies from abortion?

  • Report by Priests for Life, the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia.

In another undercover call released today, Priests for Life and Abortion Free New Mexico underscore that Ohio is yet another state that will abort babies at 21 weeks and six days even if both baby and mother are perfectly healthy.

In a joint statement, Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, and Tara Shaver, the pro-life activist making the calls, said:

“In Ohio, late-term abortions are legal and are being performed on healthy mothers carrying healthy babies up to 21 weeks and 6 days of pregnancy. The state of Ohio has recently made a great stride to protect babies with Down syndrome from abortion but there is still work to be done to protect healthy babies after 20 weeks of pregnancy who are routinely being aborted.

“We urge Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown to support the federal Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to ensure that babies who feel pain receive protection from barbaric and unnecessary late term abortions.”

The federal bill is expected to come up for a vote in mid-January and would ban abortion after 20 weeks.

Father Pavone noted that Sen. Brown, who is up for re-election in 2018, has a 100 percent rating from Planned Parenthood, voted against a partial-birth abortion ban in 2000 and more recently, voted against even considering the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act in 2015.

Today’s call is part of an ongoing series that Priests for Life and Abortion Free New Mexico are working on to demonstrate to Americans that late-term abortion is legal and does not require dire circumstances for the baby or the mother. As the calls reveal, healthy babies are aborted at least up until 32 weeks.

2017 Year In Review: Top 10 Highlights

2017 Year In Review: Top 10 Highlights

Dear Friends,

Albuquerque, NM- 2017 has come and gone so quickly. It has been a very busy year! We have so much to thank the Lord for, especially the reinforcements He has sent our way from Congressman Steve Pearce and President Trump’s administration. Our prayer for 2018 is that we will begin to see fruit after 7 years of ministry and that life will begin to spring forth from this desert land (Isa. 32:15). Here is a glimpse of all that happened in our ministry this past year. God’s blessings to you and your family in 2018.

#1- BABIES BORN

We were blessed to see two babies who were born because of God’s faithfulness and our outreach to abortion minded women over the years. The Lord knows how many more are alive today. Read more here: She Hitchhiked…👍

#2- FBI REVIEW

Two years after Tara filed a complaint with the New Mexico Attorney General, Congressman Steve Pearce confirmed that UNM and SWO are now under review by the FBI for their use of aborted baby remains. Read more here: FBI REVIEWS CRIMINAL REFERRALS

#3- DEATH EXPOSED

We worked with Operation Rescue to release documentation about the abortion related death of a 23 yr. old Albuquerque resident. A subsequent Medical Board complaint was also filed asking for an investigation into Curtis Boyd’s involvement in the woman’s death. Read more here: Official Complaint Filed Regarding Woman’s Death During Late Term Abortion

#4- UNDERCOVER AT 37 WEEKS

This project gave a rare look from inside the nation’s largest late term abortion facility, Southwestern Women’s Options. It exposed how far the abortion industry is willing to go. We also interviewed Felicia who shared what it was like going undercover at 37 weeks! Read more here: NEW VIDEO: UNDERCOVER AT 37 WEEKS- PRESSURE TO ABORT

#5- COLLABORATION

We partnered with Priests for Life to expose Late Term Abortion Across America. Together we released 19 undercover calls, documenting abortion mills who readily perform abortions on healthy mothers carrying healthy babies after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Our goal is for a federal law to be passed to end late term abortion nationwide. The House has already done so, the Senate will be voting on it in January 2018. Visit Priests for Life for more information: Exposed: Late Term Abortion

FULL LIST OF UNDERCOVER RECORDINGS! MORE TO COME…

#6- 6 PART SERIES

We compiled a 6 part series documenting the Abortion Landscape shift in NM since 2010. This highlighted how the abortion cartel is in full retreat and that their plans of expansion throughout NM have been stifled. We have a watchful eye on the entire state’s abortion facilities and have plans to continue working to systematically see that these facilities close down. until NM is abortion free.

#7- PRO-LIFE CANDIDATE

We fully supported Michelle Garcia Holmes as candidate for Albuquerque Mayor. While she did not win this election, she is now running for Lt. Governor of New Mexico. Solid Pro-life Christians in office are desperately needed here in New Mexico.

FROM THE SANTE FE NEW MEXICAN REPORT:

“Garcia Holmes has been particularly outspoken on abortion. She backed a ban on what are known as late-term abortions.”

#8- ARCHBISHOP MEETING

The Abortion Free New Mexico team had a meeting with the new Archbishop of New Mexico. This meeting was to acquaint ourselves with each other and open the line of communication. The Archbishop expressed his desire to form a pro-life commission. Read more here: UPDATE on Our Long Awaited Meeting with New Mexico Archbishop Wester and more…

#9- LAUNCHED ABORTION FREE NEW MEXICO (AFNM)

Abortion Free New Mexico launched to begin a systematic effort to close down New Mexico abortion facilities through investigative research and the accountability that comes from filing appropriate complaints. Read more about our official launch here: May Newsletter: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit…

#10- CAMPAIGN ENDS

Our call to leaders is, “Stand up for the babies and we will stand down.” Early in 2017 we felt that state leaders were starting to stand up… from the Archbishop to state legislators. So we wrapped up Protest ABQ and shifted to Abortion Free New Mexico (AFNM).

Read more about Protest ABQ

The abortion cartel in New Mexico has many weaknesses which we will hone in on in the New Year, 2018…

Some of what we will be doing includes:

Educational church outreach to inspire and equip the churches to stand for life.

Bringing accountability and exposure to key entities that are keeping abortion in New Mexico.

A public awareness campaign in eastern New Mexico to encourage Abortionist Franz Theard to close his abortion business. And more…

Please Pray With us For New Mexico in 2018

  • Strongholds to be broken that are keeping abortion in New Mexico.
  • Babies lives to be saved as abortion facilities close down in New Mexico.
  • Pro-Life leaders to be appointed throughout the state and that they make every effort to protect the babies.

THANK YOU FOR FOR STANDING WITH US FOR LIFE!

Part 6: An Abortion Free New Mexico is the Goal

Part 6: An Abortion Free New Mexico is the Goal

Abortion Free New Mexico concludes our 6 Part Series exposing the New Mexico Abortion Cartel

By Bud Shaver

Albuquerque, NM- In 2017 Abortion Free New Mexico has documented the Abortion Landscape Shift in New Mexico since 2010, in parts 1-5 of this series. These reports have highlighted how the abortion cartel is in full retreat and that their plans of expansion throughout New Mexico have been stifled. Abortion Free New Mexico has a watchful eye on the entire state’s abortion facilities and has plans to continue working to systematically see that these facilities close down until New Mexico is an abortion free state.

There are five abortion facilities in New Mexico. Only three of these abortion facilities perform surgical abortions in the state and all three are located in Albuquerque. Each of the Albuquerque abortion facilities are currently under investigation because of the research and formal complaints filed by Abortion Free New Mexico:

  1. Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO)– Southwestern Women’s Options is the nations most notorious late term abortion facility and is owned by Curtis Boyd. Curtis Boyd admits to being an illegal abortionist prior to Roe v. Wade. SWO is currently under investigation by New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas after a formal complaint was filed by Tara Shaver in July 2015. Thanks to Congressman Steve Pearce, the Department of Justice recently confirmed that SWO is now under review by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Abortion Free New Mexico also filed an additional formal complaint, this month, with the New Mexico Medical Board regarding the abortion related death of an Albuquerque resident during her 24 week abortion procedure performed by Curtis Boyd. Read the full report on SWO here: Part 4: Late Term Abortionists Arbitrarily Choose Who Lives and Dies in New Mexico
  2. University of New Mexico (UNM)– The University of New Mexico has an entrenched radical pro-abortion agenda that Abortion Free New Mexico has been exposing for years. They have now found themselves under review by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for their collaboration with Southwestern Women’s Options and the use of aborted baby remains. Earlier this year Abortion Free New Mexico documented UNM’s willingness to perform late term abortions in their state funded hospital in continued collaboration with SWO. They still operate a free standing abortion facility and train student residents to perform abortions through the Ryan Residency Training program.

  3. Planned Parenthood of New Mexico– In April 2016, a New Mexico Nursing Board complaint was filed by Tara Shaver against Planned Parenthood abortionist, Vivianne Clark. Tara discovered that Clark, a nurse practitioner, was performing illegal abortions up to 24 weeks of pregnancy in Albuquerque. New Mexico law requires that only licensed physicians can perform surgical abortions. The outcome of the Nursing Board’s investigation should come in the Spring of 2018. Clark also performs medical abortions in Santa Fe, NM. Planned Parenthood of New Mexico is currently struggling to keep an abortionist on staff, in Albuquerque, that is willing to kill babies beyond 10 weeks of pregnancy.

In addition, Abortion Free New Mexico exposed Hill Top Women’s Reproductive Clinic, the fifth abortion facility in the state which is located in eastern New Mexico near the Texas border. Hill Top has a second abortion facility in El Paso, TX. In a recorded undercover phone call to Hill Top, Abortion Free New Mexico was able to demonstrate how its Texas location is using New Mexico’s lack of abortion laws to evade Texas abortion limitations. Minors are regularly referred to Hill Top’s facility in New Mexico to obtain their abortions without parental consent. Hill Top also boasts that there is no 24 hour waiting period in New Mexico to draw Texas patients across the border for same day abortions.

Abortion Free New Mexico will be launching a public awareness campaign to further expose Abortionist Franz Theard in 2018…

  • The abortion cartel in New Mexico has many weaknesses which Abortion Free New Mexico will hone in on in the new year, 2018.
