Last Chance to OPPOSE Assisted Suicide (HB 90) Before House Floor Vote

Last Chance to OPPOSE Assisted Suicide (HB 90) Before House Floor Vote

By Bud Shaver

Santa Fe, NM- This is your last chance to let your elected representatives know that you want them to OPPOSE the radical Pro-Death assisted suicide bill HB 90 ELIZABETH WHITEFIELD END OF LIFE OPTIONS ACTbefore the New Mexico House votes on it. 

Abortion Free New Mexico is committed to preserving life in New Mexico from conception to natural death. HB 90 is the most extreme suicide bill that doesn’t just give an individual the ability to kill themselves, it will also negatively impact those who cannot make these decisions for themselves. Those like Terry Schiavo, who are left at the mercy of their spouse or a child whose parents are mislead by their physician. The acceptance of assisted suicide in our state only expands the culture of death we are fighting so hard to eradicate.

“The last enemy to be destroyed is death.”  (1 Corinthians 15:26 )

According to the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition HB 90:

  1. Allows nurses and physician assistants to participate in assisted suicide by defining “health care provider” to include: a licensed physician, a licensed osteopathic physician, a licensed nurse, and a licensed physician assistant. 
  2. Does not require the person to “self administer.” The bill states “may self-administer” meaning that euthanasia is possible.
  3. Reduces waiting period to 48 hours to receive the lethal drugs.
  4. Allows people with mental health disorders to die by assisted suicide by enabling licensed psychiatrist, psychologist, master social worker, psychiatric nurse practitioner or professional clinical mental health counselor to approve assisted suicide for people with mental health disorders.
  5. Requires health care providers to falsify the death certificate.
  6. Removes conscience rights for health care providers who object to assisted suicide by requiring them to refer patients to a health care provider who is willing to prescribe assisted suicide.
  7. Basis decisions on a “good faith compliance.”  It is impossible to prove that someone who participated in the act did not do so in “good faith.”
  8. Replaces the undefined term: “foreseeable future.”  with the normal 6 month terminal diagnosis.

NM House Passes HB 51 with 6 Democrats Breaking Party Line and Voting for LIFE

NM House Passes HB 51 with 6 Democrats Breaking Party Line and Voting for LIFE

By Bud Shaver

Santa Fe, NM- HB 51 Passed House Floor Vote with 40 Democrats Supporting the bill and 23 Republicans opposing, 1 Republican (Paul Bandy District 3) was excused.

These 6 Democrats, who truly care about the safety of women and future of New Mexico, voted with us for LIFE. 

Representatives: 

Please contact them to thank them for standing with conviction and breaking from the party line.

  • You can click on their names for contact information to thank them. 
  • Rep. Cathryn Brown (R-55) stated during the debate that in her 8 years of serving in the legislature she has never heard such a public outcry from her constituents in opposition to a bill.
  • Rep. Gregg Schmedes (R-22) valiantly stood for LIFE and for the conscience protection of New Mexico pro-life physicians who are concerned that HB 51 will strip their right to conscientiously object from performing abortions.
  • Rep. Rod Montoya (R-1) was also a bold voice for LIFE! He got the sponsor of HB 51, Rep. Joanne Ferrary (D-37) on public record to confirm what we have been saying for years, that New Mexico law already allows late full-term abortions up to the day of birth for any reason on healthy moms and healthy babies! Click here (or above) to watch an excerpt of his testimony.

Towards the end of the debate, in an exchange with Rep. Javier Martinez (D-11), Rep. Ferrary insisted that if HB 51 passes, nothing changes in New Mexico. This is simply a lie but the pro-abortion community hides behind lies every single day as they perpetuate and promote death throughout New Mexico. 

Abortion Free New Mexico opposes HB 51 because it removes two enforceable provisions, that include the protection for a woman to consent to an abortion. This will leave the drug addicted, homeless and minors at risk of forced abortions. It will also open the door for non-physicians such as midwives and nurses to perform abortions further placing women’s lives at risk. 

HB 51 will now make its way through Senate committees first and then to the Senate floor before going to the Governors desk. Please continue to pray that the pro-death legislation doesn’t succeed and that democrats in the Senate will vote with us for life.

BREAKING: Two More Botched Abortions While NM Dems Are Set To STRIP LAST PROTECTIONS For Women

BREAKING: Two More Botched Abortions While NM Dems Are Set To STRIP LAST PROTECTIONS For Women

By Bud Shaver

Albuquerque, NM- Abortion Free New Mexico, with the help of local sidewalk counselors, documented two botched abortions in January of this year at Southwestern Women’s Options late term abortion facility that required medical transport to University of New Mexico Hospital. These emergencies occurred on January 10 and January 31.

(Ambulance outside of Southwestern Women’s Options late term facility on January 10, 2019)

In a public records request, Abortion Free New Mexico was informed that on January 10, 2019 no call to 911 was made by Southwestern Women’s Options. Instead of calling 911 Southwestern Women’s Options called, Albuquerque Ambulance, a private ambulance service directly to circumvent pro-lifers from obtaining the call and computer aided dispatch (CAD) record. This delay results in women having to wait to be transported to local emergency rooms, even though their injuries may be life threatening.

In total, over the years, Abortion Free New Mexico in conjunction with Operation Rescue have documented 17 abortion injuries at Southwestern Women’s Options, the nations largest late-term abortion killing center.

The last time that Abortion Free New Mexico documented a 911 call from Southwestern Women’s Options was the day a late term abortion went terribly wrong and Albuquerque resident Keisha Atkins died from her injuries. Abortion Free New Mexico’s Tara Shaver uncovered the tragic death of Keisha Atkins who died on February 4, 2017.

Since Keisha Atkins death, it appears that Southwestern Women’s Options has stopped calling 911 when a botched abortion occurs. Sidewalk counselors also informed us that when the two ambulances arrived last month that there were no lights or sirens. This is usually the abortion facilities attempt to not alarm the patients in their waiting rooms.

“New Mexico is already one of the least restrictive states when it comes to abortion. We are also home to the largest late term abortion facility outside of communist China. Due to New Mexico’s lack of common sense regulations women who come to New Mexico for late-term abortions from all across the world remain in constant danger. The abortion cartel in New Mexico is unregulated and out of control, and yet the Democratic party is seeking to make sure we have absolutely zero protections for women by stripping away the only common sense provisions in New Mexico’s criminal abortion statute. These minimal but necessary provisions include a woman’s right to consent to an abortion and the requirement that only licensed physicians may perform abortions. Can we really expect the numbers of abortion injuries to decrease in light of these proposed changes in the law?” stated Tara Shaver, spokeswoman for Abortion Free New Mexico.

TAKE ACTION

  • Southwestern Women’s Options own consent form clearly admits the dangers posed by late-term abortions:

“The risk of terminating a pregnancy gradually increases throughout the course of pregnancy. These comparative risks become approximately equal at 16-18 weeks of pregnancy and increase so that pregnancy termination at 18 weeks and above involves a greater risk than carring the pregnancy to term.”
