Top 10 Highlights of 10 Years of Ministry in New Mexico

Top 10 Highlights of 10 Years of Ministry in New Mexico

By Bud Shaver

Albuquerque, New Mexico- It has been a privilege and a blessing to serve New Mexico as its only full time pro-life missionary family since 2010. It’s actually hard to believe that this July marks a decade of our life saving, culture changing, transformational ministry because the time has simply flown by.

10 Years of Ministry: Top 10 Highlights

#10 Nation’s Most Strident Activists

Awarded Operation Rescue’s Pro-Life Person’s of the Year in 2013 

Due to our high profile efforts, we are considered by the radical left as, “some of the country’s most strident activists opposed to abortion!” 

We have redefined the American mission field and our efforts have been featured in virtually every major news source in the country! 

#9 Our Greatest Reward

We have been given four beautiful blessings (Tirzah 10, Eden 7, Moriah 5 and Azariah 1). Raising them to love the Lord is the most important and rewarding job that we have been entrusted with.

Commissioned by Operation Rescue to Albuquerque in 2010, we are implementing several proven strategies, in an effort to make New Mexico, “Abortion Free.”

#8 Lives Saved and Death Exposed

We exposed the death of Keisha Atkins at Southwestern Women’s Options after receiving an anonymous tip. It was the late term abortion method that made her septic and killed her. 

While one death is tragic, countless babies lives have been saved due to our faithful advocacy on the sidewalk and investigative research. 

Here are some testimonies from our sidewalk counseling ministry over the past 10 years:

#7 Undercover Investigations

Over the past 10 years we have conducted over 50 undercover investigations and have exposed late term abortion across America. 

New Mexico is the nation’s Late Term Abortion Capital but with the help of Priests for Life, we revealed that abortions after 20 weeks do occur all across the country.

Our investigations have been utilized to effect public policy reform efforts both locally and nationally!

  • Nearly all of our undercover investigations can be watched at Abortion Free New Mexico’s video archive here.

#6 Documented Abortion Injuries

With the help of Operation Rescue, local sidewalk counselors and local pro-life groups, we have confirmed, a staggering, 41 abortion related injuries at 4 New Mexico abortion clinics. 

Documenting these abortion injuries helps us educate the public and file subsequent complaints.

As pro-life missionaries to New Mexico since 2010, our goal is to close down the state’s last five abortion facilities through investigative research, public exposure, and proper oversight and accountability. 

#5 Filed Formal Complaints 

Due to our comprehensive research and undercover investigations, we’ve filed formal complaints against every abortion center and abortionist in the state! 

Accountability matters!

Our goal is to close down the state’s last five abortion facilities through investigative research, public exposure, and proper oversight and accountability. 

#4 Successful Public Awareness

Our high profile efforts with Protest ABQ and Abortion Free New Mexico, with the help of several national groups, has solidified Albuquerque’s reputation as ground zero in the national abortion debate.

We have redefined the American mission field and our efforts have been featured in virtually every major news source in the country.

#3 Dramatic Public Policy Shift 

In 2010, openly pro-life politicians were no where to be found. In 2020, EVERY Republican candidate running for office is publicly Pro-Life! Many of them are our friends!

As Pro-Life Missionaries to New Mexico since 2010, we are working towards an Abortion Free New Mexico where every pre-born child is valued and protected.

#2 Abortion Expansion Thwarted

In 2010, New Mexico was ground zero for the radical left. Due to our public pressure, three abortion centers have closed and abortion expansion has been thwarted.

No new abortion centers!

Read our 6 Part Series exposing the New Mexico Abortion Cartel and highlighting how their plans of expansion throughout New Mexico have been stifled here: 

#1 Late Term Abortion Capital

With the help of Operation Rescue and Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, director of  Life Ministries U.S. we exposed New Mexico to the world as the Late Term Abortion Capital. A designation we coined based on our groundbreaking research.

A reputation we are working tirelessly to reverse!

Thank you for believing in us and supporting our mission!

Your partnership with us has been invaluable and together we have truly made an impact in the late term abortion capital of the nation. Each new day provides new hope that New Mexico will value life, especially those nestled within their mothers wombs. Thank you for believing in us, our mission to make New Mexico Abortion Free and for blessing us with your time, talents and your treasure.

May we all continue to sow into a culture of life in 2020 as we anticipate a pivotal moment in our country. May God bless you, keep you and may His face shine upon you and give you peace!

Celebrating 10 years of what the Lord has done!
A gift for you!

We ordered pens to help in our efforts to get out the pro-life vote right before the country shut down. Needless to say, we have not been able to pass them out at any events. We don’t want them to go to waste so we’d like to gift you some pens to use at your church, events or just simply to give to like minded friends as a reminder to get out and vote on November 3rd. 

With any online donation this month we’ll send you some, just tell us how many you’d like in the notes section online. (Max 25 per donation)

We are so grateful to those of you who through faithful prayer and support have made 10 blessed years of ministry possible for our family.

  • Please consider setting up a secure tax deductible monthly donation online here.

A monthly gift of $20.20 would be such a blessing to us and the babies we are working to save in New Mexico!

UNM TAKE DOWN THAT BANNER!

“I’m calling for The University of New Mexico – UNM president to ask the UNM abortion clinic to take down that banner! I don’t believe those are heroes.

Heroes don’t work at abortion clinics.

The UNM Center for Reproductive Health performs late term abortions through 6 months gestation!

We Finally Agree With Progress Now New Mexico on Something!

We Finally Agree With Progress Now New Mexico on Something!

By Tara Shaver

BREAKING: Abortion Free New Mexico Joins ProgressNow New Mexico Calling for ABQ City Council President Pat Davis to Resign

Albuquerque, New Mexico- In a comprehensive post and statement made by Progress Now New Mexico on June 25, 2020, ProgressNow New Mexico disavowed their former Executive Director Pat Davis and threw him under the #CancelCulture bus. 

ProgressNow New Mexico issued the following statement,

“This week, new details have surfaced regarding former ProgressNow New Mexico Executive Director and Albuquerque City Councilor Pat Davis’ shooting of a Black man while working as a cop in Washington D.C. Davis originally founded ProgressNow New Mexico but left the organization in 2017 and while his name is attached to the organization and its beginnings, we want to state clearly that his past and present actions are not reflective of ProgressNow New Mexico values.”

Pat Davis made national news and was featured on Tucker Carlson’s show when he ran for U.S. Congress (CD1) in 2018 for his “F— The NRA” campaign. At that time Pat Davis stated,

“[Pro-gun] policies resulted in dead children, dead mothers and dead fathers. Being polite hasn’t made our schools any safer or protected officers like I used to be.”

Tucker Carlson fired back,

“How many NRA members have committed mass shootings?”

While Pat Davis could not name any questionable NRA member shootings at the time, ironically now City Councilor Pat Davis is under fire politically for his own questionable shooting of a black man!

Bud Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico issued the following statement,

“Pat Davis and his egregious actions is the TRUE face of the radical left and what they do when given a position of power. We’ve been exposing and opposing Pat Davis for years! Well ProgressNow New Mexico we finally agree on something, Yes! City Councilor Pat Davis needs to resign.”

Abortion Free New Mexico has been at the forefront over the years, of exposing Pat Davis’ radical pro-abortion agenda. Click the link below for a comprehensive recap of our efforts exposing, opposing and our previous calls for the resignation of City Councilor Pat Davis over the years.

BECAUSE PRO-LIFE IS AN ACTION, NOT A TITLE

BECAUSE PRO-LIFE IS AN ACTION, NOT A TITLE

By Bud Shaver

Thirteen years ago, in 2007, our lives were forever changed! Tara and I were working in an evangelistic apartment ministry in Flagstaff, Arizona. That summer we went to Spirit West Coast in southern California with a group of college students, and after watching our favorite Christian bands…  

Tara visited a pro-life booth, took some information, and the rest is history! 

Driving back to Flagstaff, AZ our hearts were awakened to the reality of the Abortion Holocaust that has killed 1/3rd of our generation! 

We prayed a simple prayer, 

“Lord we commit our lives to your service to work to end this grave injustice until you call us home with you, or until abortion is ended in America. Use us as you see fit we humbly pray.”

The pro-life organization, Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, hosted a booth that summer where Tara received eye opening information and an invitation to their annual pro-life training camp. We attended their camp later that summer and our lives have never been the same. We never looked back and have been fulfilling our commitment to God, pursuing an end to abortion, ever since! 

After attending their pro-life training camp we moved to Riverside, California in 2008 to work with Survivors as assistant Directors of the Campus Life Tour where we toured the country visiting over 180 college campuses and high schools from 2008-2009. 

Then we moved to Wichita, Kansas to work as interns with Operation Rescue from 2009-2010 and have been full-time pro-life missionaries working in Albuquerque, New Mexico from 2010 until the present.
