Fr. Stephen Imbarrato Encourages the NM-Senate To Pass a Late-Term Abortion Bill with NO Exceptions for Rape, Incest, or Health

Fr. Stephen Imbarrato Encourages the NM-Senate To Pass a Late-Term Abortion Bill with NO Exceptions for Rape, Incest, or Health

By Bud Shaver, Executive Director of Protest ABQ

Fr. Stephen Imbarrato with Priests for Life and founder of several pro-life ministries in New Mexico including: Life Ministries NMProtest ABQ, and Project Defending Life  released the following statement:

“I am very excited about the plan laid out by the [Senate-NM] to get a late term abortion ban passed in New Mexico. It is my hope that it is a bill that has no exceptions. I made it clear last year and again this year to the sponsors of the bill that I cannot support a bill with exceptions. Rape, incest, and health of the mother exceptions are not tolerable in pro life legislation. It is important that our Catholic leadership insist that our Catholic legislators support a late term ban with no exceptions. I recently submitted a ban bill to appropriate parties without exceptions that is law in 20 states. Let us unite around a late term ban with no exceptions.”

Father Stephen is a priest with the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, ordained 10 years as a late life vocation. Fr Stephen has been given permission to do full-time national pro-life ministry and is currently a member of the Pastoral Staff of Priests for Life. Fr Stephen is the founder of several pro-life ministries including St Gerard’s CPC in Connecticut and Project Defending Life also Protest ABQ  in New Mexico.

Throwback Thursday: 2010…Boyd & Co. Turn Albuquerque Into The Late-Term Abortion Capital Of The World

Before Operation Rescue sent us as Pro-Life Missionaries to New Mexico back in 2010, Operation Rescue released a five part series: “Abortion Capital” which delves into the business of lucrative late-term abortions in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

In case you missed this 5 part series back in 2010, here is an in depth look into the late-term abortion business and the key players at Southwestern Women’s Options late term abortion facility in Albuquerque:

Abortion Capital, Pt. 1: The Wild, Wild West

Abortion Capital, Pt. 2: “Am I Killing? Yes, I am. I know that”

Abortion Capital, Pt. 3: “A baby came out and it was moving”

Abortion Capital, Pt. 4: The Dancing Dog

Abortion Capital, Pt. 5: “We think the process is safe. Nothing is perfect”

This quote by Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue is the final paragraph of “Abortion Capital” revealing Operation Rescues purpose in releasing this extensive 5 part series and goal in sending us to Albuquerque:

 “We plan to use every legal option available to us to make sure the killing stops, from First Amendment street activism, to political lobbying, to options that may be available through the legal system. But the first step is to raise public awareness and warn others of the dangers so they don’t fall victim to this predatory late-term abortion mill. We pray that this series of investigative reports will help do that.”

With God’s favor, Operation Rescue’s continued help and the resolved commitment of local Albuquerque Protest Priest Fr. Stephen Imbarrato…a unified collaborative effort has produced great fruit in raising national and local awareness about the New Mexico abortion cartel and has also laid a foundation for the great things that continue to bring us closer to seeing abortion end in the state.

Operation Rescue just released a report highlighting the six most dangerous abortion businesses in America since 1973…Southwestern Women’s Options has been exposed as one of the most dangerous facilities in the country!
