January 22, 2018: As we Mourn Roe, We Must Work Harder than Ever to Reverse this 45 year Curse

January 22, 2018: As we Mourn Roe, We Must Work Harder than Ever to Reverse this 45 year Curse

By Bud Shaver

Santa Fe, NM – The state of New Mexico is considered by some pro-abortion activists as, “No. 1 in the nation for providing equal access to sexual and reproductive health services”…[ABORTION!] in addition, we are known as the Late Term Abortion Capital of America.  

While pro-abortion extremists would champion the fact that New Mexico leads the nation for “Abortion On Demand, and Without Apology” and claim that unrestricted access to abortion services is wonderful for New Mexico…

  • Let’s take an honest look at how these regressive policies may be actually holding New Mexico back from fulfilling its greatest potential. Instead of being a wonderfully empowering place to live…

New Mexico is actually one of the worst places for children, families, and retirees to live:

This past week we joined our prayers with fellow pro-life Americans across the state of New Mexico and around our country to cry out to our Lord in repentance for 45 years of innocent bloodshed spilled all across our nation. On this 45th anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court Ruling (January 22, 1973) we must ask ourselves what more we can do to reverse this 45 year curse.

Wednesday, January 17, 2018: This past week we joined hundreds of fellow pro-life marchers for the Annual 2018 Sanctity of Life Awareness and Unity Day up in Santa, Fe to stand for life and send a strong message to the New Mexico legislature to enact laws to protect the most vulnerable community residing in New Mexico, those living in the sanctuary of their mother’s wombs.

In addition, we were not there simply to march, we were also there to work and help get Pro-Life candidate, Michelle Garcia Holmes​ on the republican ballot for lieutenant governor of New Mexico for the 2018 upcoming election!

Friday, January 19, 2018: Also this past week we joined local pro-life activists for the First Annual: Albuquerque March for Life

March for Life around The University of New Mexico – UNM, a major player in the abortion cartel in New Mexico.

“January is Sanctity of Life Month so let’s march for LIFE! Let’s let our community and our government know that we will not silently stand by and allow state and federally sanctioned homicide any longer—and do it with the peace and love of our Messiah in the public square.”

Saturday, January 20, 2018: Abortion Free New Mexico joined the Messianic pro-life community in Albuquerque, New Mexico for prayer and fellowship on Shabbat…

…and then we took our prayerful presence out to the streets to stand for life. Saturday, January 20, 2018.

Sunday, January 21, 2018: Abortion Free New Mexico is visiting a different local church each Sunday this Sanctity of Life month 2018.We were at a church in Albuquerque, New Mexico for Sanctity of Life Sunday 2018.

The 45th President of the United States addressed the 2018 March for Life, marking 45 years of legalized Abortion in America

Here is an excerpt of Donald J. Trump’s Historic speech:

“As you all know Roe versus Wade has resulted in some of the most permissive abortion laws anywhere in the world. For example, in the United States, it’s one of only seven countries to allow elective late-term abortions along with China North Korea and others. Right now, in a number of States, the laws allow a baby to be [aborted] from his or her mother’s womb in the ninth month. 

It is wrong. It has to change.

I strongly supported the House of Representatives’ pain-capable bill, which would end painful late-term abortions nationwide. And I call upon the Senate to pass this important law and send it to my desk for signing.” Donald J. Trump, President of the United States

President Trump’s full historic speech to March for Life

  • We stand with President Trump and join him in calling upon the Senate to pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and send it to his desk for signing, thereby putting an end to painful late term abortions nationwide.
  • To contact your senators about supporting the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, go to StopAbortionNow.org.

2017 Year In Review: Top 10 Highlights

2017 Year In Review: Top 10 Highlights

Dear Friends,

Albuquerque, NM- 2017 has come and gone so quickly. It has been a very busy year! We have so much to thank the Lord for, especially the reinforcements He has sent our way from Congressman Steve Pearce and President Trump’s administration. Our prayer for 2018 is that we will begin to see fruit after 7 years of ministry and that life will begin to spring forth from this desert land (Isa. 32:15). Here is a glimpse of all that happened in our ministry this past year. God’s blessings to you and your family in 2018.


We were blessed to see two babies who were born because of God’s faithfulness and our outreach to abortion minded women over the years. The Lord knows how many more are alive today. Read more here: She Hitchhiked…👍


Two years after Tara filed a complaint with the New Mexico Attorney General, Congressman Steve Pearce confirmed that UNM and SWO are now under review by the FBI for their use of aborted baby remains. Read more here: FBI REVIEWS CRIMINAL REFERRALS


We worked with Operation Rescue to release documentation about the abortion related death of a 23 yr. old Albuquerque resident. A subsequent Medical Board complaint was also filed asking for an investigation into Curtis Boyd’s involvement in the woman’s death. Read more here: Official Complaint Filed Regarding Woman’s Death During Late Term Abortion


This project gave a rare look from inside the nation’s largest late term abortion facility, Southwestern Women’s Options. It exposed how far the abortion industry is willing to go. We also interviewed Felicia who shared what it was like going undercover at 37 weeks! Read more here: NEW VIDEO: UNDERCOVER AT 37 WEEKS- PRESSURE TO ABORT





We partnered with Priests for Life to expose Late Term Abortion Across America. Together we released 19 undercover calls, documenting abortion mills who readily perform abortions on healthy mothers carrying healthy babies after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Our goal is for a federal law to be passed to end late term abortion nationwide. The House has already done so, the Senate will be voting on it in January 2018. Visit Priests for Life for more information: Exposed: Late Term Abortion



We compiled a 6 part series documenting the Abortion Landscape shift in NM since 2010. This highlighted how the abortion cartel is in full retreat and that their plans of expansion throughout NM have been stifled. We have a watchful eye on the entire state’s abortion facilities and have plans to continue working to systematically see that these facilities close down. until NM is abortion free.


We fully supported Michelle Garcia Holmes as candidate for Albuquerque Mayor. While she did not win this election, she is now running for Lt. Governor of New Mexico. Solid Pro-life Christians in office are desperately needed here in New Mexico.


“Garcia Holmes has been particularly outspoken on abortion. She backed a ban on what are known as late-term abortions.”


The Abortion Free New Mexico team had a meeting with the new Archbishop of New Mexico. This meeting was to acquaint ourselves with each other and open the line of communication. The Archbishop expressed his desire to form a pro-life commission. Read more here: UPDATE on Our Long Awaited Meeting with New Mexico Archbishop Wester and more…


Abortion Free New Mexico launched to begin a systematic effort to close down New Mexico abortion facilities through investigative research and the accountability that comes from filing appropriate complaints. Read more about our official launch here: May Newsletter: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit…


Our call to leaders is, “Stand up for the babies and we will stand down.” Early in 2017 we felt that state leaders were starting to stand up… from the Archbishop to state legislators. So we wrapped up Protest ABQ and shifted to Abortion Free New Mexico (AFNM).

Read more about Protest ABQ

The abortion cartel in New Mexico has many weaknesses which we will hone in on in the New Year, 2018…

Some of what we will be doing includes:

Educational church outreach to inspire and equip the churches to stand for life.

Bringing accountability and exposure to key entities that are keeping abortion in New Mexico.

A public awareness campaign in eastern New Mexico to encourage Abortionist Franz Theard to close his abortion business. And more…

Please Pray With us For New Mexico in 2018

  • Strongholds to be broken that are keeping abortion in New Mexico.
  • Babies lives to be saved as abortion facilities close down in New Mexico.
  • Pro-Life leaders to be appointed throughout the state and that they make every effort to protect the babies.


We are a Christian missionary family serving in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Putting our faith into action, for the past 7 years we have exposed Albuquerque as the late term abortion capital of the nation and have worked to bring accountability to an unregulated abortion industry that is killing children in their mothers wombs up to the day of birth.

In order to be the most effective in our pro-life ministry, we do this important work full time while homeschooling our children and raising them to have a biblical worldview. We rely solely on the provision of the Lord and individuals like you to provide for our daily needs.

We would be blessed to have you partner with us in this ministry. Your prayers and support are invaluable.

December Newsletter 2017: Finishing Strong 💪

December Newsletter 2017: Finishing Strong 💪

Dear Friends,

This month has been very eventful and productive. We have been working very hard on several projects including a collaboration with Priests for Life to expose late term abortion across the nation. We are finishing 2017 strong!

This month we released Part 5 of a 6 Part Series exposing the New Mexico Abortion Cartel…  (NEW VIDEO) COHORTS OF DEATH: UNDERCOVER AT 37 WEEKS EXPOSES UNM LATE TERM ABORTION COLLUSION


This was the latest installment documenting the abortion landscape in New Mexico and a continuation of Abortion Free New Mexico’s exposure of the radical abortion agenda at The University of New Mexico – UNM. Our latest undercover project has taken viewers inside the notorious Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO) late term abortion facility, the investigation has also uncovered that the University of New Mexico (UNM), a publicly funded institution, is willing to collude with late term abortionists to deliver dead babies at UNM Hospital once a deadly injection is administered by abortionists at SWO. In an undercover phone call placed to the Women’s and Children’s Health Care Clinic at UNM Hospital, Tara confirmed the fact that, Lily Bayat a UNM Fellow at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center would deliver the dead baby at UNM Hospital after Southwestern Women’s Options administered the lethal injection…

“Abortion Free New Mexico continues to expose just how deep the collusion is between the University of New Mexico and Southwestern Women’s Options to ensure that late term abortions continue up to the day of birth,” stated Tara Shaver

ACTION ITEM: Abortion Free New Mexico is asking that you contact the University of New Mexico Regents and respectfully ask them to STOP ALLOWING ABORTIONISTS AT UNM HOSPITAL TO PROMOTE AND PERFORM LATE TERM ABORTIONS AT THE EXPENSE OF NEW MEXICO TAX DOLLARS.

In addition, respectfully ask them to PERMANENTLY cut all ties with Planned Parenthood of New Mexico and Southwestern Women’s Options.

PLEASE Contact the UNM Board of Regents: 


  • In addition, this month we continued to work with Priests for Life, the largest Catholic Pro-Life organization on the globe…

Abortion Clinic Schedules Appointment for Healthy Mother to Abort Healthy Baby at 32 weeks

Priests for Life undercover calls continue to reveal what most Americans reject…


Excerpt from Priest for Life’s report,

The undercover call was carried out with the assistance of Abortion Free New Mexico. Tara Shaver, who represents that organization, stated, “This undercover investigation reveals that Abortionist Warren Hern in Boulder, Colorado is willing to perform an abortion at 32 weeks of pregnancy for $25,000 with virtually no questions asked. Late term abortions have no place in a civilized society, yet in America they are performed on healthy women carrying healthy babies all across this nation. This should be a wake up call for Americans who refuse to believe that this is happening.”

The call was the eighth in a series of calls that Priests for Life will continue to commission across the nation. The previous calls so far were made to the Southwestern Women’s Options clinic in Albuquerque, NM, where our callers successfully made abortion appointments at 25, 30, and even 33 weeks.

(Left, Mother and Son saved from abortion as Bud ministered outside local abortion center. Right, baby girl born in August of this year after we assisted her mother who was homeless.)

Pro-Life ministry is about saving babies lives by revealing the light and love of Christ to their mothers in their darkest hour, when it seems to them that an abortion is their only option.

There are many ways to save the lives of pre-born children, and for four years of our ministry here in Albuquerque we ministered to women seeking abortions at local abortion centers.

This month we were reminded of what our ministry is all about when God brought two mothers, that we have helped over the years, back into our lives.

Only the Lord knows just how many lives are saved when Christians are faithfully present at these places of death but there is nothing more beautiful than to see the fruit of your labor when visited by the moms who chose life because of your presence.  We continue to be blessed by still receiving phone calls and emails from mothers in need and also encouraging thank you’s from moms that we have had the privilege of ministering to over the past 7 years.

Tara had the privilege of presenting awards to two high school students that participated in the 27th Annual Christian Heritage Speech Competition. We assigned the 11th grade topic which was “How to make your community Abortion Free?” These students did an amazing job at honing in on some really important things we can do to make our communities abortion free.
