New Mexico’s Tax Funded Abortion Clinics Are Targeting Minors

New Mexico’s Tax Funded Abortion Clinics Are Targeting Minors

By Bud Shaver

​Albuquerque, New Mexico– In a recent report, Abortion Free New Mexico exposed how federal tax dollars are funding late-term abortions in New Mexico, in violation of the Hyde Amendment, through the state’s Medicaid program. This struck a nerve, went viral, and even drew a response from US Congressional candidate Michelle Garcia Holmes (R) who stated,

“This will stop when I’m in congress!” 

What is even more shocking is that due to the absence of ANY common sense abortion restrictions (like parental notification laws) the New Mexico abortion cartel is able to TARGET minors for abortions, and our tax dollars fully fund this too! In fact, undercover reports conducted by members Abortion Free New Mexico reveal that abortion clinics workers are coaching minors (as young as 14) on how to get New Mexico Medicaid to pay for their abortions- even when their pregnancies are the result of sexual abuse.

In fact, the University of New Mexico is so brazen in their exploitation of minors (or “young women” as they call them), that they run a “Young Women’s Clinic” at the same location as their abortion clinic! 

Check out their sign which reads, “UNM Center For Reproductive Health [and] UNM Young Women’s Clinic”

In addition, to the University of New Mexico targeting minors at the “Young Women’s Clinic,” Abortion Free New Mexico has exposed in other undercover investigations that all of the abortion facilities in New Mexico are targeting and exploiting minors for financial gain.

FLASHBACK: Tara Shaver, spokeswoman for Abortion Free New Mexico said it best in one of the reports covered by LifeNews back in 2017,

“Instead of urging the minor to contact the authorities, 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 reality is that the New Mexico abortion cartel is more concerned about how much money they can make off of selling an abortion, especially lucrative late term abortions, instead of adhering to the laws (mandatory reporting of suspected child abuse) that were passed to protect minors from sexual abuse. We need enforcement of these laws in New Mexico and for our leaders to make sure that this illegal activity is fully investigated.”

Here are excerpts from previous undercover investigations exposing how the lack of common sense legislation in New Mexico is allowing the New Mexico Abortion Cartel to TARGET minors for tax funded abortions:

Planned Parenthood: Albuquerque, New Mexico

“In a recently obtained undercover phone call to Planned Parenthood of New Mexico, a 14 year old minor makes an abortion appointment. Not only is the client hiding the abortion from her parents, she is also making sure she can hide the fact that the boyfriend who got her pregnant is a 21 year old man. 

This constitutes statutory rape and should be reported to authorities, however, the Planned Parenthood employee assures the minor that the Doctor, Shauna Jamison, won’t report it and that this type of thing happens, and is covered up by Planned Parenthood all the time!

It’s no surprise that Planned Parenthood continues to cover up for rapists since they profit from these lucrative abortions, but in New Mexico where abortion has no restrictions whatsoever, the point needs to be made that young girls are being sexually exploited and abortion doctors in this state are complicit!”

Southwestern Women’s Options: Albuquerque, New Mexico

“In a new undercover video by Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life, the caller posing as a minor and victim of incest by an older family member is seeking a late-term abortion at 26 weeks of pregnancy. Instead of urging the minor to contact the authorities, 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. 

Angelo Artuso, senior legal counsel for Abortion Free New Mexico, said medical professionals are mandatory reporters under New Mexico law.

‘Under the mandatory reporting law (Section 32A-4-3A), physicians and nurses have a duty to report suspected child abuse. The law (Section 32A-4-2 I) provides that child abuse includes criminal sexual penetration, incest, OR criminal sexual contact,’ Artuso explained.”

Hill Top Women’s Reproductive Clinic: Santa Teresa, New Mexico

“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.”

​Albuquerque, New Mexico– Our report from last week, New Mexico Receives The Most Federal Tax Funds, Uses It to Fund Abortions received a huge response on social media with over 6,000 views. But the best response came from US Congressional (CD1) candidate Michelle Garcia Holmes (R) who shared the report on Facebook with the following statement,

“This will stop when I’m in congress!” 

Over the past ten years, we have done so many countless reports, undercover investigations, and filed complaints with the New Mexico Medical Board, New Mexico Nursing Board, New Mexico Attorney General, FDA, US Department of Health and Human Services, submitted our findings to the United States Congress House Select Panel on Infant Lives and even met several times with a former New Mexico Governor with one ultimate goal in mind, that just one of these people in a position of authority would take action based on our findings.

Well, now we finally have someone willing step up and take action!

Is Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham waging war on the Catholic Church for political retribution?

Is Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham waging war on the Catholic Church for political retribution?

 Piñon Post Reader Op-Ed: By Bud Shaver 

(This originally appeared online at the Piñon Post)​

On Wednesday, May 13, 2020, New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham began lifting her rigid restrictions on small businesses, allowing them to re-open at 25% capacity. However, she arbitrarily continues to punish the Catholic Churches of New Mexico by only allowing Churches to re-open at 10% capacity.

This attack against religious freedom in New Mexico is uniquely impacting the Catholic community because Catholic services are uniquely dependent upon the physical presence of their Priests and their parishioners due to their Eucharistic Masses. Evangelical Churches throughout New Mexico, on the other hand, have been able to continue virtually unimpeded due to services that can be streamed online.

Could it be that Lujan Grisham is using her executive power during this COVID-19 crisis to wage war on the Catholic Church of New Mexico, due to the Catholic Bishops’ bold stance in opposition to 2019’s House Bill 51, the – Decriminalize Abortion Ban during the 2019 legislative session? 

According to Breitbart News,

“[Pro-life] advocates are especially grateful for the efforts of the Catholic bishops of New Mexico who worked in defense of life. In addition to several official statements from the bishops, Abortion Free New Mexico noted the prayer vigil organized by the Archdiocese of Santa Fe in the rotunda of the capitol building. Archbishop John Wester welcomed people of all faiths to join in prayer to ‘move the hearts of the Democrat legislators to oppose pro-death legislation,’ the pro-life group said.”

In fact, it was Catholic Democrats in New Mexico who were pivotal in the defeat of this radical pro-death agenda spearheaded by New Mexico Governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham.

During the 2019 Legislative Session, Lujan Grisham welcomed radical pro-abortion extremists in Santa Fe and vowed to sign their extreme legislation if passed by the New Mexico legislators.

A Facebook post dated March 2, 2019 stated,

“More than 100 advocates and health care providers a-delivered over 10,000 signatures in support of House Bill 51, removing ourtdated and unenforceable language criminalizing New Mexico health care providers. Reproductive health care is not a crime, and I am proud to stand with women across New Mexico in support of HB 51.”

After the devastating defeat at the New Mexico legislature, Gov. Lujan Grisham wasn’t going to let this current crisis go to waste.

During the current COVID-19 crisis in New Mexico, the governor has deemed abortion facilities “essential” and allowed them to remain open, but has deemed Churches “non-essential” and forced them to close.

Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico received the following statement from the governors office:

“We have discussed this matter and the clinics are not going to close. Some people are claiming that abortions are elective surgeries and we are not considering them as elective surgeries.”

Meanwhile, The Archdiocese of Santa Fe has been especially hard hit due to the current shut-down imposed by Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham. 

According to one report,

“The Archdiocese says it’s struggling to make payroll since parishes haven’t been able to gather collections since the state public health orders prohibit in-person services.”

In addition, for Catholics, the ability to meet and receive communion is a cornerstone of their faith. The Church’s purpose is to bring souls to salvation and minister to the poor and needy, but Christians can’t fulfill these purposes when the governor deems fellowship, community and service to others as non-essential activities.  

This absurd inconsistency coming from New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham reeks of political retribution.

Bud and Tara Shaver lead the pro-life ministry Abortion Free New Mexico, using a systematic approach to closing abortion facilities through investigative research, public exposure, and proper oversight and accountability.
