UPDATE: Michelle Garcia Holmes who is running for Lieutenant Governor of New Mexico issued the following statement after learning that Fr. Stephen Imbarrato is currently in JAIL for his peaceful Red Rose Rescue efforts:

Prayers for Father Stephen Imbarrato, he stood strong for the unborn, as we all should. You might remember him from when he and several Priests endorsed my campaign for mayor last year. He must serve 7 days. Please pray for his safety and that his story and strength be a lesson to us all to stand up for life and the babies who will never get life. You are brave and courageous Father Imbarrato.

Michelle Garcia Holmes represents the leadership that New Mexico needs and that New Mexicans have the opportunity to elect this November 6th!

Washington D.C. – On Monday, June 25th¬†Red Rose RescuerūüĆĻFr. Stephen Imbarrato was sentenced to 7 days in jail for his efforts on December 4, 2017 to peacefully defend the lives of babies from imminent death at the hands of American abortionists. This ruling by Superior Court Chief Judge Robert Morin in Washington D.C. is in stark contrast to a previous rescue in which law enforcement officers opted not to bring charges against four others. Abortion Free New Mexico continues to stand with¬†Red Rose Rescuers who are living sacrificially for Christ and for the babies who face death on a daily basis. Please keep the¬†Red Rose Rescuers in your prayers and see below for an excerpt from LifeSiteNews on Fr. Stephen’s arrest and a call to action from Abortion Free New Mexico.¬†Fr. Stephen Imbarrato is scheduled to be released from jail on Sunday July 1, 2018.

According to a report from LifeSiteNews:

Father Stephen Imbarrato of Priests for Life had been participating in the Red Rose Rescue, a campaign to enter abortion facility waiting rooms and distribute red roses while offering women words of encouragement not to abort their babies. He was one of three pro-lifers to enter Steven Brigham‚Äôs Capital Women’s Services in Washington, D.C., where they were eventually arrested for trespassing on private property.

On Monday [June 25, 2018], DC Superior Court Chief Judge Robert Morin found Imbarrato guilty, along with pro-lifers Julia Haag and Joan McKee, according to a press release from Mercy Missions DC. The judge suggested that their punishment would consist of supervised probation and being barred from the abortion facility, conditions that Imbarrato declared he could not abide by.

The priest explained that while he respected authority, he rejected a ruling from a ‚Äúcorrupt and immoral government that sanctions, protects (through its courts), and funds the daily mass murder of thousands of innocent preborn babies.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúWhen do the babies get their day in court?‚ÄĚ Imbarrato asked. ‚ÄúToday they do! Judge, you will have to send me to jail!‚ÄĚ Morin sentenced him to seven days in prison.

‚ÄúFather is at peace and exactly where God wants him to be. It is an honor to be in chains for Christ,‚ÄĚ Mercy Missions DC founder Lauren Handy said. ‚ÄúVisiting those in jail is a Catholic corporal work of mercy and Father has been placed in an unique situation where he can live out his faith daily.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúMultiple lives were saved that day‚ÄĚ of the rescue,‚ÄĚ Handy added in a Facebook Live video from outside the prison. ‚ÄúMom‚Äôs chose life instead of abortion.‚ÄĚ

Tara Shaver, Spokeswoman for Abortion Free New Mexico, issued the following statement:

“Americans are not only being harassed and refused service because of their conservative beliefs, but now even a Catholic Priest in good standing has been sent to jail for boldly yet lovingly daring to live out his belief that all LIFE from conception to natural death is worthy of protecting. He has sacrificed his freedom to save the lives of our pre-born brothers and sisters in the womb who have NO protection under our current constitution.

Current technology has progressed so far that it is now an undisputed scientific fact that life begins at conception and there is abundant case law in America affirming this. Fr. Stephen Imbarrato has lead the charge in calling upon President Donald J. Trump to issue a Personhood Proclamation affirming the value of ALL human life from the moment of fertilization and to direct all of federal agencies including the Department of Justice and all federal law enforcement to act accordingly. In addition, Abortion Free New Mexico is asking President Donald J. Trump to issue a Pro-Life pardon to the three current Red Rose Rescue Prisoners of Conscience: Dr. Monica Miller, Will Goodman and Fr. Stephen Imbarrato who are ALL currently in jail for the radical belief that ALL life is worthy of protection including babies in the womb currently sentenced to an unjust death in America’s abortion killing centers.”

New Mexico Political Showdown Brewing in the Wild, Wild West!

New Mexico Political Showdown Brewing in the Wild, Wild West!

By Bud Shaver

Albuquerque, NM- A political showdown is brewing in New Mexico between anti-Trump, anti-America, anti-family, anti-life candidates known as “Progressive” ¬†New Mexico Democrats vs. Pro-Trump, Pro-America, Pro-Family, Pro-Life candidates that are being labeled “Hard Right” New Mexico Republicans. The line that has been drawn in the sand as the dust clears after the New Mexico primary election could not be more clear and the URGENCY more stark! The battle between good and evil, right and wrong or the good guys vs. the bad guys is coming to the political big screen in living color here in New Mexico and will be raging until the November 6th general election.

Even the Associated Press is seeing the showdown that is brewing:

Her [Lujan Grisham] victory against two primary opponents set up a showdown between an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump on immigration issues and [Steve Pearce] a member of the hard-right Freedom Caucus in Congress who campaigned for Trump in 2016.

The great news is that the political climate has experienced such a monumental shift since we came to New Mexico in 2010 as Pro-Life Missionaries.
From day one when we arrived to the wild New Mexico west back in 2010 we have worked to expose and end late term abortion, called out abortion collaborators and have held elected officials and leaders accountable to protect the most fundamental right, LIFE. New Mexicans will now have the chance to elect leaders who will truly work to promote a culture of life that so many Americans have fought so hard and sacrificed so much, since the founding of this great country, to preserve and build upon.

Here are the results from the New Mexico Primary:

Governor: Pro-Life/ Pro-Trump (R) Steve Pearce vs. Pro-Abortion/ Anti-Trump (D) Michelle Lujan Grisham

Lt. Governor: Pro-Life/ Pro-Trump (R) Michelle Garcia Holmes vs. Pro-Abortion/ Anti-Trump Howie Morales

Attorney General: Pro-Life (R) Michael Hendricks vs. Pro-Abortion (D) Hector Balderas

Senate: Pro-Life (R) Mick Rich vs. Pro-Abortion (D) Martin Heinrich

Congressional District 1: Pro-Life/ Pro-Trump (R) Janice Arnold-Jones vs. Pro-Abortion/ Anti-Trump (D) Deb Haaland

Congressional District 2: Pro-Life (R) Yvette Herrell vs. Pro-Abortion (D) Xochitl Torres Small

Congressional District 3: Pro-Life Jerald McFall (R) vs. Pro Abortion (D) Ben Ray Lujan

Tara Shaver spokeswoman for Abortion Free New Mexico issued the following statement:

“A line in the sand has been drawn here in New Mexico between candidates that will protect babies lives and defend our conservative values. Between now and the New Mexico general election on November 6th pro-life conservatives must actively support and promote the candidates that will uphold the values that we hold so dear. This showdown will determine which way our state goes, to affirm life and protect the most vulnerable among us or take us down a path that will solidify New Mexico’s reputation as the Late Term Abortion Capital. Now is our chance to come together and work to elect the leaders that New Mexico desperately needs. Please keep this election and it’s candidates in your prayers and consider how you can be involved.”

This election season is just getting started and there are key positions that pro-life candidates MUST fill to secure a future for the babies in New Mexico, especially at the highest level: Governor and Lt. Governor seats.

We are working to help Michelle Garcia Holmes in her campaign for Lt. Governor and also Congressman Steve Pearce’s campaign for Governor, but we need your help. Please give your best gift today to help us elect pro-life leaders in the late term abortion capital of the nation.
