PROTEST ABQ: Successful Launch and a HUGE Development!

PROTEST ABQ: Successful Launch and a HUGE Development!

(A Press Conference will be held Tuesday, March 18th at 4:00pm MT in front of the NEW location for the UNMCRH abortion clinic.)

Albuquerque, NM- On March 11th after several weeks of training local activists Protest ABQ had a very successful launch. Over 50 of you showed up to be a strong voice for the babies outside of the UNM Center for Reproductive Health abortion mill (UNMCRH). The Protest ABQ campaign has been working hard to wake up this city to the killing of babies that takes place daily and has been very effective so far.

About a year and a half ago we were told by a trusted source that the UNMCRH abortion mill was looking for a new location because Bud’s presence just one day a week was affecting their business. Their exact words to our source were, “We are moving our location because we are being protested.” Shortly thereafter, they declined to renew their lease and began going month to month. Since November 22, 2013, Bud has been faithfully present in front of this abortion mill 5 days a week and in December UNMCRH applied for a permit for their new location.

March 25th will be the last day that the UNMCRH abortion mill will be located at 1701 Moon St! This is a HUGE victory for this neighborhood. Due to Bud’s faithful public presence over the past 3 years, neighborhood residents often voiced their shock and dismay to Bud once they realized that an abortion clinic was killing children each day in their neighborhood. Their question to Bud was often, “How can we get this abortion clinic out of our neighborhood?” Well, PROTEST ABQ has proven to be the answer.

With the recent launch of PROTEST ABQ, our public pressure has proven to be effective and is needed more urgently than ever due to the fact that the UNM Center For Reproductive Health killing center will be fleeing its current location at 1701 Moon St. and will reopen April 1st at 2301 Yale Blvd. SE Building E.

Respectfully contact the UNM Medical Group and let them know that you oppose the UNM Center For Reproductive Health’s new abortion clinic location at 2301 Yale Blvd SE Building E.

Please respectfully contact Al Montano: 505-247-0444 and the UNM Medical Group BEFORE April 1st at this number: 505-272-3203

Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, founder of PROTEST ABQ released the following statement, “This baby killing mill is scheduled to open April 1st. We can keep this mill from opening! The only thing that will allow this mill to change locations and open here is…apathy from the people of ABQ. If the people rise up the way they did for the petition last summer and the referendum, this mill will not open! We need to Protest ABQ and we need to do it now. Join us at the press conference at the new location this Tuesday! All are welcome”

Project Defending Life Launches New Campaign, PROTEST ABQ

Project Defending Life Launches New Campaign, PROTEST ABQ

By Tara Shaver, Project Defending Life

(We will be hosting a press conference on Tuesday March, 11th at 4pm (MT) at the UNM abortion clinic.)

UPDATED: Group launches new anti-abortion campaign (KOB Eyewitness News 4 Coverage)

Albuquerque, NM- Project Defending Life is announcing a new public awareness campaign: PROTEST ABQ. This new campaign will utilize “abortion victim photography” and other public awareness efforts, in response to the failed ban on Late-Term Abortions on November 19th. Through strategic and sustained focuses PROTEST ABQ is going to reach deeper into our community to educate Albuquerque and New Mexico residents about the businesses and individuals that are keeping abortions in our community.

Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, founder of Project Defending Life issued the following statement,  “It is time to get serious about protesting the killing of our little brothers and sisters in the womb. These protests will be peaceful and constitutionally legal. We will not condone violence of any kind by anyone in this campaign. Indeed, we are protesting the use of violence…against babies in the womb. We will peacefully protest this violence.”

As part of this initiative (PROTEST ABQ) Project Defending Life is inviting all known and recognized pro-life leaders, groups, and ministries to New Mexico to help us. We will host and provide hospitality to any group or ministry including lodging and food for the duration of your stay here. We are welcoming National Pro-Life groups to come to Albuquerque, NM and do the work they do best. The National groups will work under their own ministry or group banner in cooperation with PROTEST ABQ and Project Defending Life.

In the state of New Mexico late term abortions are legal up to the ninth month of pregnancy. These abortions are, in fact, being performed in the city of Albuquerque each week on women who come from all across the nation to obtain them. Since Albuquerque is drawing women from all across the country, Project Defending Life is inviting pro-life groups from all across the nation to come to Albuquerque and join us as we PROTEST ABQ.

While our efforts on Nov. 19th fell short of ending Late-Term abortions in Albuquerque, by maintaining a public and prayerful presence at our local abortion clinics, we have been quite successful at ending abortion one woman, one child, one day at a time. The preliminary abortion numbers for 2012 are 3,134, which is a 627 decrease from 2011 (3761 total) and a 2,590 decrease in abortions in New Mexico since 2007 (5,724 total!)

“As we move forward in Albuquerque, we realize that abortion will end in our city and state, when hearts are touched and minds are changed concerning the killing of the most innocent and defenseless children in our state, those in the womb. PROTEST ABQ is a way to raise this public awareness. If we accomplish nothing else, we must succeed in protesting the evil of our generation…legalized child killing,” stated Bud Shaver spokesperson for PROTEST ABQ.
