NEW WAY To Support New Mexico Pro-Life Ministries

NEW WAY To Support New Mexico Pro-Life Ministries


Your Generous Support Can Now Be Tax Deductible

Fr. Stephen Imbarrato just launched Life Ministries U.S. an umbrella non-profit organization that includes our ministries in New Mexico: Pro-Life Witness Protest ABQ and also his national movement Protest Child Killing.


As a missionary family, we are very blessed and humbled to have been invited by Fr. Stephen Imbarrato to New Mexico to serve our Lord in Full-Time Pro-Life Ministry. This calling is nothing short of God’s providence in our lives since neither Bud nor myself ever anticipated being on the front lines fighting our nations most devastating injustice.

The truth is, that without faithful financial support each month, we never would have been able expose New Mexico as the Late-Term Abortion Capital of the Country, nor continue to hold New Mexico leaders and elected officials accountable or work Full-Time on many other projects day in and day out to bring the abortion cartel to it’s knees.

We are Proud to join Created Equal In This National Effort

Bud Shaver, Executive Director of Protest ABQ issued the following statement, “Now is the opportune time for all of the pro-life organizations across the country to be more strategic and unify our efforts in opposition to Planned Parenthood and the rest of the Abortion Cartel nationwide. Protest ABQ is proud to join Created Equal in exposing the abortion industry’s weak link…With every serial murderer, their biggest problem becomes, ‘What do I do with all of the dead bodies?'”

​Created Equal Announces- 

In December, videos of the 2013 National Abortion Federation conference were released by GotNews showing abortionist Renee Chelian saying, “We are all one incineration company away from being closed.”

Her admission shed light on the weak link of the abortion industry and specifically Planned Parenthood (i.e. medical waste companies). Abortionists depend on them to dispose of their victims’ bodies.

In undercover videos leaked by GotNews of a 2013 National Abortion Federation conference, Abortionist Renee Chelian discusses the problem of disposing of aborted babies. While proposing solutions she comments, “I had five months’ worth of fetal tissue in my freezers.”

The Ohio Attorney General reported in Planned Parenthood Investigation Summary Regarding Disposal of Aborted Fetuses that Stericycle disposes of fetal remains for Planned Parenthood facilities in Ohio.  Stericycle is Planned Parenthood’s main medical waste service provider in America.

Stericycle’s collaboration with Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry through its collection, transportation, and disposal of aborted children and the instruments used to kill them is well documented (see Evidence). Providing this service enables the killing of preborn children. Planned Parenthood depends upon medical waste companies to dispose of dead babies.

QuestionWhat if Stericycle were to stop doing the dirty work of Planned Parenthood?

AnswerPlanned Parenthood would be unable to dispose of the babies they kill, and the murder of millions of innocent children by Planned Parenthood would likely halt.

Take Action:

  1. Contact Stericycle CEO Charles Alutto at 847-607-2004 or (sample script for calls and emails: view) and respectfully request Stericycle discontinue providing Planned Parenthood their services to dispose of aborted children and the instruments used to kill them (see important note below).
  2. Sign the petition to stop Stericycle from collaborating in the deaths of millions of babies by abortion.
  3. Donate to Created Equal, PO Box 360502, Columbus, OH 43236 or click HERE to give electronically.  Your gifts are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

Last summer and fall, Created Equal helped lead 100,000 activists to protest at over 600 Planned Parenthood clinics in each of the fifty states.  This coalition is capable of mounting serious opposition to Stericycle (See

If we don’t act NOW to pressure these medical waste companies to sever agreements with Planned Parenthood, we will have missed a historic opportunity to stop the killing.

Important note:
Despite being caught red-handed by the Ohio Attorney General, Selin Hoboy, Vice-President of Legislative and Regulatory Affairs, has said that Stericycle “does not accept fetuses” in accordance to their Regulated Medical Waste Acceptance Policy. This is merely a semantic ploy.

According to the policy, Stericycle will not accept “complete human remains,” which includes fetuses. However, babies are not “complete” after being dismembered, decapitated, and disemboweled in standard abortion methods. Their broken parts and torn tissue are categorized by Stericycle as “pathological waste”—defined as “human or animal parts, organs, tissues, and surgical specimens”—which they do accept. So while they may not be picking up intact fetuses, they do accept aborted babies’ fragmented body parts. Stericycle uses this technical exemption to justify their continued collaboration in child-killing.

Don’t allow Stericycle to get away with the lie that they don’t dispose of aborted babies for Planned Parenthood or other abortion providers.

EXCLUSIVE UPDATE: UNM Publicly Silent, Privately Scrambling in response to U.S. House Panel Investigation

EXCLUSIVE UPDATE: UNM Publicly Silent, Privately Scrambling in response to U.S. House Panel Investigation

By Tara Shaver

Albuquerque, NM- On the verge of subpoena’s for records related to fetal tissue research, Southwestern Women’s Options and UNM scramble to comply with U.S. Panel inquiry.

The New Mexico Political Report obtained a statement, shortly after our initial report, from an attorney representing Southwestern Women’s Options stating that, “We have formally responded this afternoon to its [the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives] information request, as we previously arranged.” “We will continue to be responsive to the panel’s inquiries and will do so in a manner that protects individuals’ safety and privacy.”

The University of New Mexico, however, has not issued a public statement but behind the scenes emailed it’s employees today. This email was leaked by an internal source to Fr. Stephen Imbarrato of Priests for Life and Director of Life Ministries US this evening.

In the email it is clear that the UNM Health Sciences Center is doing damage control in light of the ABQ Journal article released yesterday.

The email reads, “This is the Health Sciences Center’s Response: The University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center is, has been and will continue to cooperate voluntarily with the United States House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives.  We received a letter signed by Committee Chairwoman Representative Marsha Blackburn on January 6, 2016.  Today we will be releasing our correspondence with the Panel staff to set the record straight, verifying our cooperation. This initial letter included 19 individual areas, each encompassing a wide range of issues and documents related to our life-saving research.  This critical research has already resulted in dramatic improvements in the health of extremely premature babies, including reducing brain damage and blindness.  Research using fetal tissue has allowed for discoveries that have led to extremely premature babies now having a greater chance of survival and an improved quality of life at younger and younger ages.  This is an historic accomplishment. We submitted an initial response on January 29, 2016, as per our agreement with Panel staff. We were granted an extension to respond with further documents by February 15, 2016 by Special Counsel to the Committee, Frank Scaturro.  Our staff has been diligently working to gather responsive documents and we intend to honor our agreement.

We are disappointed that the majority would issue a precipitous press release prior to the February 15 deadline stating that we are not cooperating and are unwilling to submit the documents requested.  In light of the documents we are releasing today, this statement is not supported by the actual interactions and agreements with the Panel staff.

The University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center respects both the Committee and the United States House of Representatives. We remain committed to our mission to save lives, reduce suffering and to provide the best quality of care for our patients.

It seems strange though that if UNM has indeed been voluntarily cooperating that Rep. Blackburn would feel the need to issue a subpoena next week.

UNM Leadership 

For a little background to who is calling the shots at UNM Health Sciences Center, for years Protest ABQ has been bringing awareness to the fact that UNM is the heart of the abortion industry in New Mexico and Dr. Paul Roth, Chancellor for Health Sciences, CEO UNM Health System and Dean of UNM School of Medicine is the driving force behind the scenes.


Dr. Paul Roth

Protest ABQ has been so vocal about this reality that Dr. Roth wrote a letter almost 18 months ago to Archbishop Michael Sheehan complaining about Fr Stephen Imbarrato. The letter was full of false accusations and untruths. The fact that Dr. Roth wrote the letter validates UNM’s concerns about the exposure that Protest ABQ has exposed about UNM’s radical abortion agenda.

As Chancellor of Health Sciences and CEO of UNM Health System Roth is responsible for the following:

-UNM Hospital- Performs late term abortions.

-School Based Health Centers- In Albuquerque High Schools and Middle Schools as a means of promoting abortion to NM youth.

-UNM Center for Reproductive Health- Performing abortions up to 22wks. Managed by abortionist Eve Espey, 2014 Margaret Sanger award recipient and mentioned in recent CMP videos as UNM’s abortion asset.

-UNM Young Women’s Clinic- Also managed by Eve Espey who has worked since last summer with Albuquerque Mayor RJ Berry on a initiative to reduce teen pregnancies through contraception and other reproductive health initiatives such as abortion. ​

Politically Motivated

Dr. Roth, in the past over a 2-3 year period, worked with the New Mexico Chamber of Commerce and State Legislators including Republican Senators John Ryan and Rod Adair to try and legalize embryonic stem cell tissue research in New Mexico.

Dr. Roth recently donated $500 to New Mexico Speaker of the House, Republican Donald Tripp. The Republicans recently hosted Dr. Roth at the opening of the 2016 Legislative Session.


Dr. Roth has been a consistent donor to State Democrats who have squashed every pro-life legislation put forth in New Mexico in the last 2 years.

Dr. Roth’s long term relationship with notorious late term abortionist Dr Curtis Boyd is well known.

Is Dr. Roth the one who is behind the initial failure to comply with IPRA’s by NMAFL, Protest ABQ and now the failure to comply with the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives document requests?

Fr. Imbarrato issued the following statement:

“The proof of Dr. Roth’s lack of integrity and mindset can be seen in the email released today to Health and Science Center employees when he states, “We remain committed to our mission to save lives, reduce suffering, and to provide the best quality of care for our patients.”

Dr Roth, what about the unborn babies, some viable, that die each and every day under your supervision? How about the mothers who have been documented as wounded in your clinics including the poor mother who is believed to have died in your UNMCRH abortion clinic in July 2011 which I am still investigating?

There have been calls for the termination of abortionist Eve Espey and rightfully so, but it is Dr. Paul Roth who should resign or be terminated by the UNM Board of Regents.”

The UNM Board of Regents, Governor Martinez, and AG Hector Balderas, as Protest ABQ has consistently demanded, should begin conducting their own investigation of Dr. Paul Roth’s Health and Sciences Center and his control over the New Mexico abortion industry.
