April Newsletter: PEACEFUL PROTEST Moves UNMCRH Abortion Clinic

April Newsletter: PEACEFUL PROTEST Moves UNMCRH Abortion Clinic

This month was the month of PROTEST as we officially launched PROTEST ABQ. Peaceful and lawful PROTEST has its place in the pro-life movement and this month confirmed that fact in a big way! In fact, our consistent and strategic PROTEST literally moved the UNM abortion clinic UNM Center For Reproductive Health! We are hoping that with enough public exposure of UNM’s pro-abortion agenda and accountability demanded of all of the individuals who are perpetuating this agenda at UNM, we can STOP THE KILLING!

16th Botched Abortion at Late Term Abortion Clinic In ABQ!

16th Botched Abortion at Late Term Abortion Clinic In ABQ!

Albuquerque, NM- At 10:15 a.m. on Thursday, March 27th an ambulance arrived at late term abortion mill Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO) and spent 20 minutes inside the clinic before bringing a woman out on a gurney completely covered by a sheet. The woman was rushed to the hospital and her condition is unknown.

On February 13, 2014 another woman was rushed to the hospital from SWO. This is the 16th botched abortion that we’ve documented since 2008 at SWO and the 2nd in two months. Women will continue to be injured at this clinic until it is closed in the interest of the public safety.

“We are also very concerned about any possibility that these injuries may be related to the Ryan Residency Training Program at the University of New Mexico that allows medical students to perform abortions in a clinical setting, which all 3 Albuquerque abortion clinics are participating in,” stated Fr. Imbarrato, Founder of Project Defending Life and Protest ABQ.

New Mexico abortion clinics are completely unregulated and lack any oversight from state and local authorities which continues to put women’s lives at risk.Since the New Mexico Department of Health and the New Mexico Medical Board refuse to protect unsuspecting women seeking abortions we rely solely upon those who volunteer their time at local abortion clinics to document these injuries. It is long overdue that local and state authorities acknowledge and act on this serious crisis.

“Our prayers are with this woman and those like her who will continue to be injured at Southwestern Women’s Options. Those in authority in New Mexico who continue to turn a blind eye to the abortion crisis here in Albuquerque bear direct responsibility due to their inaction,” said Tara Shaver of Project Defending Life.

Local News Channel KOB- 4 Coverage of PROTEST ABQ Launch

News Coverage by KOB 4:

“The group that launched a campaign to ban late term abortions in Albuquerque says they are here to stay.

In fact, they are inviting national pro-life groups to come work with them too, and they hope Albuquerque will be a catalyst for the rest of the nation.

“Protest ABQ” will be a public awareness campaign. Organizers plan to publicize what they call “abortion victim photography,” and will protest Monday through Friday in front of a UNM clinic that provides abortions. They say they will do it until the clinic closes.

“We gave the city a chance to stand for life, to protect these babies, but the city failed and so now we’re realizing we need to reach back into the city with education and just a measure of exposing who it is that’s helping to keep abortions in our community,” Tara Shaver said.

Shaver says part of that “education” will mean showing people images of allegedly aborted fetuses.

“The killing of babies in the womb is offensive. We should be offended that it’s happening. Instead of being upset about showing the images, we should be upset about what the images depict. The images are truthful, they’re real and this is the very evil that we’re fighting against,” Shaver said.”
