BREAKING: 34 Botched Abortions Now CONFIRMED At Southwestern Women’s Options Since 2008

BREAKING: 34 Botched Abortions Now CONFIRMED At Southwestern Women’s Options Since 2008

By Bud Shaver

Albuquerque, NM- Since 2008, members of Abortion Free New Mexico with the help of Operation Rescue and local pro-life street activists have documented 20 abortion related injuries at Southwestern Women’s Options which include at least one confirmed woman’s death

New Mexico Alliance for Life (NMAFL) recently released a log of 17 medical emergencies, that have been sustained by women during botched abortions at Southwestern Women’s Options, which have resulted in emergency transports by ambulance since 2014. 

This log includes confirmation of 3 abortion related injures that members of Abortion Free New Mexico previously reported on but were never able to obtain CAD reports or 911 calls for. These include:

The release of an additional 14 documented medical emergencies by NMAFL brings the staggering total of botched abortions at Southwestern Women’s Options ALONE since 2008 to 34!

Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico released the following statement,

“34 is a staggering number of women who have been injured at the largest late term abortion facility outside of Communist China. Abortion facilities in New Mexico are currently completely unregulated, they are never inspected by the Dept. of Health and according to a New Mexico Medical Board ruling from 2011, there is no standard of care applicable when performing invasive abortion procedures. The 1969 Criminal Abortion Law currently in the cross hairs of radical pro-abortion extremists is not antiquated, as they claim. These 34 botched abortions prove that the 1969 law requirement that dangerous abortions be performed in an accredited hospital, should not be stripped from New Mexico law, but should be strictly enforced. The notion that abortions are safe for women is simply not true. The fact is, that thestatus quo that the pro-abortion community insists on maintaining with the passage of HB 51 DECRIMINALIZE ABORTION will just ensure that the number of women injured and their dead babies will just continue to pile up at the hands of late term abortionists.”

Prayer Vigil

Monday night February 18, 2019, Archbishop Wester along with Bishop Wall of Gallup, NM will lead a prayer vigil at the steps of the Capital Building in Santa Fe, New Mexico as two of the nations most extreme pro-death legislation HB 51 DECRIMINALIZE ABORTION and HB 90 ELIZABETH WHITEFIELD END OF LIFE OPTIONS now head to the Senate. 

Take Action

There are enough Catholic Senators to defeat both pro-death bills if they boldly stand with the Catholic bishops and vote their faith!
We need 6 Catholic Democrats to OPPOSE HB 51
Read our report that reveals who the Catholic Senators are and PLEASE contact them.
