If Abortions Are Deemed “Essential Services” Our Prayers Are Equally Essential 

By Bud Shaver

​Albuquerque, New Mexico- There are currently 13 states (Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia) that are abortion free in our nation, in these combined states countless babies lives are being saved. I guess you could say that this is a silver lining of the current situation our nation now faces. However, New Mexico is missing the opportunity to truly protect all lives by allowing abortion businesses to continue operating as usual. 

While Churches, non-essential businesses, and elective surgeries have been halted in the state, late term abortions continue to bring women here to New Mexico from all across the nation, who by the way, are not quarantining for 14 days after their arrival as New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan has mandated by executive order. Instead they leave within 4-5 days to return home with empty wombs.

In southern New Mexico, Franz Theard is busy moving his grisly abortion machine across state lines to defy the state of Texas’ orders to stop the killing of unborn children, and at least one woman has been injured on the New Mexico side.

Of course, the UNM Center For Reproductive Health is still performing late term abortions up to 24 weeks and EVERY Friday while we are out praying, UNM’s free standing abortion clinic parking lot is PACKED! 

On March 25, a spokesperson from New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s office issued the following statement by phone to Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico,

“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.”

Abortions are absolutely elective and non essential and have no place in a civilized society. The fact that it is tolerated is a shame to our state and our nation. May we resolve to stand in the gap for the babies scheduled to die and continue to be a voice for them.

Please continue to contact Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham and ask her to close down New Mexico’s abortion facilities.

​If abortions are deemed “essential services” during the CV-19 pandemic, then our prayers and protest presence are EQUALLY essential!

  • Abortion Free New Mexico conducts a weekly prayer and protest campaign, Faith To Action Friday at the University of New Mexico’s free-standing abortion killing center. (DETAILS BELOW)

While New Mexico Governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham claims to be taking extreme measures to “save lives” during this pandemic, Fr. Stephen Imbarrato sums it up best…

“Over 125,000 abortions are occurring DAILY all across the world. The governments of the world don’t care about people dying. They kill the unborn, they kill the elderly, the disabled, and the medically vulnerable all the time. They are involved in all types of immoral experimentation all the time. They don’t care about people apart from political power. How is this not obvious to anyone paying attention? And of course these immoral governments know they need to neutralize the Church to succeed in their immoral endeavors.” Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, director of LifeMinistriesUS.org

“It only takes an hour to make a lasting difference and have an impact for LIFE. Now more than ever, we need to pray collectively, publicly, and strategically. Our presence has the ability to reform The University of New Mexico – UNM so that they get out of the abortion business!” Bud Shaver, Abortion Free New Mexico

Abortion is their dirty little secret that must be exposed.

UNM is at the heart of the abortion cartel in New Mexico, as a publicly funded institution UNM consistently promotes a culture of death and is actively training the next generation of abortionists…

If you can’t join us, please keep our efforts in your prayers that hearts will be touched and eyes will be open to the truth about abortion in New Mexico.

P.S. Pray for America and President Donald Trump! 

The overreaching response to this pandemic is unprecedented! Never in America’s 243 year history has our country, our constitutional freedoms, nor our Churches been shut down! This is just a desperate power grab by failed globalist operatives and is yet another attempt to undermine President Donald Trump and destroy the economy in the run up to the vital 2020 election!
