Abortion Free New Mexico Requests UNM to Release Aborted Babies Remains For Burial

Abortion Free New Mexico Requests UNM to Release Aborted Babies Remains For Burial

By Bud Shaver

Albuquerque, NM- Abortion Free New Mexico has made a request to Paul Roth, Chancellor of Health Sciences, at the University of New Mexico (UNM) for the 72 aborted baby remains that are mentioned in the Albuquerque Journal’s article last week announcing that UNM has halted their fetal tissue research program. According to a memo from Roth, these baby remains are in storage and he has not yet decided whether or not he will destroy them. Abortion Free New Mexico believes that these human remains are worthy of a proper burial.

The aborted baby remains are from the notorious late term abortion facility, Southwestern Women’s Options, which has been the sole provider of fetal tissue used by the University of New Mexico for experimental research. The ending of UNM’s fetal tissue research program is a first step in bringing UNM to a place where all lives are valued and protected. Abortion Free New Mexico urges UNM officials to make the right decision in putting these babies to rest.

“Abortion Free New Mexico has made arrangements with a local mortuary to receive these babies from UNM so that they may be buried with dignity and respect. It is our hope that we be allowed to honor these babies and finally put them to rest with a memorial service and burial. It is time that New Mexico start taking even the smallest actions that demonstrate the value of every human being,” stated Tara Shaver.

“On September 8th people of faith will come together in Albuquerque and all across the nation to participate in the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children. This is a solemn time to remember the innocent victims of abortion and to stand in solidarity with them. Albuquerque is the burial place for two aborted children, babies Ryan and Eve, and it is our hope that these 72 aborted baby remains can be laid to rest alongside them. Please pray that UNM officials make the right decision regarding these babies and join us for the service already scheduled to be held in Albuquerque,” stated Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, Priests for Life.

Take Action

Join Abortion Free New Mexico, Operation Rescue and those who believe that these babies deserve a proper burial, in respectfully contacting Paul Roth asking him to allow these babies to be transferred to a local cemetery that Abortion Free New Mexico has arranged.

UNM Abandons Experimental Research BUT Radical Abortion Agenda Unabated

UNM Abandons Experimental Research BUT Radical Abortion Agenda Unabated

By Bud Shaver

Albuquerque, NM- For years, members of Abortion Free New Mexico have worked with Operation Rescue to expose that the University of New Mexico (UNM) is at the heart of the New Mexico abortion cartel. Through investigative research Abortion Free New Mexico has exposed that UNM is actively training up the next generation of abortionists and running their own free standing abortion facility. After a formal complaint filed by Tara Shaver, in 2015, with the New Mexico Attorney General’s office based on consent forms (1),(2) she obtained from Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO), in addition to pressure and awareness from Abortion Free New Mexico, other local pro-life groups, and a U.S. Congressional inquiry, the nefarious nature of the collaboration between UNM and SWO has finally come to light.


According to an Albuquerque Journal article published this week, Dr. Robin Ohls, a neonatologist at University of New Mexico Hospital, who specializes in caring for ill newborns, has been conducting experimental research using aborted babies for years.

“[Ohls] said her UNM lab has used fetal tissue to explore various ‘developmental questions,’ evaluating issues that affect premature infants, such as heart and eye disease and brain growth.”

Due to the public scrutiny generated by these shocking revelations and two internal investigations by the University of New Mexico, this week, the Albuquerque Journal announced:

“an indefinite end to any such research at the state’s largest university.”

The abortion industry has attempted to justify the use of aborted babies in medical research as some kind of “greater good” that can come from their barbaric practices, but instead Americans have been horrified and appalled by these shocking realities.

Tara Shaver issued the following statement,

“While it is good that the University of New Mexico is abandoning their experimental research using aborted babies, they now need to close their free standing late term abortion facility, the UNM Center for Reproductive Health (UNMCRH). This would be a good next step toward ending their radical abortion agenda that is killing babies up to 24 weeks of pregnancy. In addition to the babies being killed at UNMCRH, Abortion Free New Mexico has also documented that women have been injured obtaining abortions at this facility. Nothing good can come from abortion, and the facts remain that UNM is still in the business of killing babies, maiming women and in the process they are only destroying their own reputation.”

Albuquerque, NM- We are proud to announce the launch of Abortion Free New Mexico’s official website:

As pro-life missionaries we are working toward the goal of an Abortion Free New Mexico where every pre-born child is valued and protected. To achieve this goal we are focusing on three primary initiatives:

  1. Late Term Abortion Death– Our investigative work over the past 8 years has culminated with a New Mexico Medical Board investigation into the abortion related death of a local woman who died during a late term abortion performed by Curtis Boyd at Southwestern Women’s Options. Our prayer is that Curtis Boyd will be stripped of his New Mexico medical license thereby shuttering Southwestern Women’s Options permanently and ending Late Term Abortion in New Mexico!
  2. New Mexico Politics– The political climate has experienced such a monumental shift since we came to New Mexico in 2010 as Pro-Life Missionaries. ​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. It’s ALL HANDS ON DECK FROM NOW UNTIL ELECTION DAY NOVEMBER 6, 2018
  3. Church Initiative– Abortion Free New Mexico utilizes an innovative model for equipping Churches, Home/Bible study groups or Organizations in developing their own unique role in making New Mexico Abortion Free. ​The body of Christ’s involvement is a vital component in making New Mexico Abortion Free. We want to empower your church with the tools it needs to be an integral part of building a culture of life in New Mexico. features 4 main pages:
