Dear Friends and Partners for LIFE!

On this day as we consider all that God has accomplished on our behalf through his son Jesus, we are overwhelmed with gratitude for all of you.

Today we give thanks for your sacrifice and investment into the work God has commissioned us for here in New Mexico. Thank you for partnering with us as we pursue making New Mexico abortion free.

Lives have been saved, minds have been changed and those who are keeping abortion in this state have been and continue to be exposed.

Our journey over the past 4 years has produced much fruit and you have made that possible through your prayers, support and encouragement.

May you enjoy this day with family and friends as much as we will with ours. God’s best to each of you. Happy Thanksgiving!

Because of Christ we stand,

Everything We Do For Life Should Be In Protest Of Pre-Born Child Killing

Everything We Do For Life Should Be In Protest Of Pre-Born Child Killing

By Tara Shaver

Albuquerque, NM- New Mexico is the late term abortion capital of America and is drawing women from all 50 states and beyond for abortions through all nine months of pregnancy. Due to this fact Albuquerque is also the protest capital of America because of the sustained efforts of Protest ABQ.

On November 18, 2014 Protest ABQ, along with other major pro-life groups, announced it’s national call to action consisting of two days of protest and the first ever national strike throughout the pro-life community. Protest ABQ has been protesting and exposing those in New Mexico who support, condone and profit from the abortion industry. These protests will continue and culminate to the national protest and strike on January 22-23, 2015.

The term “protest” sometimes bears negative connotations, but as can be seen from the simple dictionary definition, “protest” serves a noble purpose: “to declare by speaking out with words or action, expressing earnestly our disapproval.”

Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, Founder of Protest ABQ is encouraging all like-minded people of conscience to begin their protests now and issued the following statement, “There is no reason why every community across this nation does not begin protesting those who support, condone and profit from the abortion industry today and everyday.  In fact, everything I do in my pro-life ministry, I do in protest of pre-born child killing.”These protests should be peaceful and prayerful and ultimately culminate in the national protests and a strike on January 22-23, 2015.

Protest ABQ is reaching out to pro-life groups and realizes that together, we must endeavor to promote national protests and a national strike in order for this to send the strongest message possible to our leaders. When “We the People” say that enough is enough and stand up in peaceful resistance to the ongoing slaughter of innocent children, then we will see action and the end of pre-born child killing in this nation.While the national pro-life movement is diverse and we may have different styles and methods of outreach, it’s vital that we stand together in solidarity.  “ALL pro-life efforts locally and nationally must culminate with a unified voice and public effort to END our generations greatest injustice…legalized child killing,” stated Bud Shaver, Executive Director of Protest ABQ.

Major Pro-Life Groups Call for a National Strike and Protests to End Abortion

Major Pro-Life Groups Call for a National Strike and Protests to End Abortion

By Tara Shaver

Albuquerque, NM- Protest ABQ is joined by national Pro-Life organizations, including Operation Rescue, Created Equal, and Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust in declaring a national call to action: a National Strike and Protests on January 22-23, 2015.

America has endured 41 years of legalized abortion, now is the time to stand together in solidarity as a people of conscience to end the killing of children in the womb, says Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, founder of Protest ABQ in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The use of strikes in various venues have been and continue to be effective in producing change. This one-of-a-kind call for two days of national strike and protests has the potential of sending a resounding message to the leaders of this nation that the American people want abortion to end.

The yearly anniversary of Roe vs. Wade continues to be a day of mourning across the pro-life community. Each year thousands gather in Washington D.C. to protest against this evil.

However, to step up our call to end abortion, we are encouraging all like-minded people throughout the country not to go to work or school nor spend money on Thursday, January 22nd and Friday, January 23rd, 2015, but instead to join together for prayer, fasting and PROTEST in their localities.

All participants must commit to following the model of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in their protests.”Even if we were to be beaten, screamed at, or abused, we will not respond in kind,” stated Fr. Imbarrato.

Protests will be held in front of state capitol buildings, busy intersections, and abortion facilities. No place is off limits and no one who profits from, supports, or condones pre-born child killing is immune from these protests.

Together, we are calling on national religious and pro-life leaders to join us and encourage all like-minded people to participate in a national strike.

Fr. Imbarato stated, “Let January 22, 2015, be the start of the national strike, which shuts this country down so that our government and the American people understand the urgency of ending legalized pre-born child-killing. It is time that the successful strategies of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Polish Solidarity Movement led by Lech Walesa and Fr.Jerzy Popieluszko be implemented in the United States to end this injustice!”

We will not condone violence of any kind by anyone in this National Strike. Indeed, we are protesting the use of violence — against children in the womb. We will peacefully and prayerfully protest this violence.

In the coming weeks and months leading up to January 22-23, 2015 Protest ABQ will be calling on all Pro-Life groups to commit to joining this historic effort.
