Nurse Practitioner Doing Abortions Illegally In NM


In April we continued our research efforts and filed a formal nursing board complaint against abortionist Vivianne Clark, a nurse practitioner who is doing illegal abortions up to 24 weeks of pregnancy.

Clark is employed by Planned Parenthood of New Mexico. It’s no surprise to learn that even in NM, Planned Parenthood thinks that they can get away with violating a state statute that implicitly requires physicians to perform abortions.

We have asked the New Mexico Nursing Board to do a thorough investigation of Vivianne Clark’s abortion involvement and have supplied them with sufficient evidence to take appropriate action against her license.

Please pray that this and all of our efforts bear abundant fruit for the cause of life in New Mexico.

Our Protest efforts continue…


(Protest ABQ sponsored the 2016 Protest PP national event where over 70 were in attendance.)

Thanks The HUB of New Mexico and the Harms Report for your coverage of #ProtestPP in Albuquerque, New Mexico and ALL of those who came out to Protest Planned Parenthood.

In addition, this month we continued to expose those at the University of New Mexico- UNM who are responsible for their radical abortion agenda and ruining the reputation of this university.

UNM Pumps out Abortionists While the Overall Demand for Abortions Dwindle

In April Reuters reported that even though the number of abortion clinics is dwindling, young medical doctors who want to kill babies by abortion are on the rise due to training programs like Medical Students for Choice and the Ryan Residency Training Program.

Both programs contribute to the radical abortion agenda that is deeply entrenched at the University of New Mexico.

We expounded on this article to connect the dots between UNM abortion training and Curtis Boyd in addition to the fact that UNM’s radical abortion agenda will only end when Paul Roth and abortionist Eve Espey have their employment terminated.

We coupled this report with a call to action.

Please pray that the UNM Regents and UNM President will act swiftly to turn this “University of Death” around.

Catholic Senator Michael Sanchez Funded By Albuquerque’s Abortion Cartel

By Tara Shaver

Albuquerque, NM- For years Michael Sanchez (D- NM Senate Majority Leader ) has made it impossible for pro-life bills that make it to the Senate to get out of committee, he consistently places these bills in “kill committees” where the bills are prevented from going to a vote on the floor. As a Catholic Democrat many wondered why he consistently did this, when on January 28, 2016 he was honored by Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains for his “lifelong commitment to Reproductive Health and Rights” it all became very clear that he has put politics before his faith. Simply put he has been bought and paid for by Albuquerque’s abortion cartel and is in full support of pre-born child killing.

GOP Finally Speaking Out Against Pro-Abortion Legislators

Just this month the Republican Party of New Mexico Spokesman Tucker Keene issued the following statement: “Sanchez and the Democrats he leads in the Senate have repeatedly killed pro-life legislation, including bans on the kind of late-term abortion that Boyd performs in New Mexico. Sanchez has repeatedly sided with radical abortion doctors over the will of his constituents,” said Keene. “The people of New Mexico and of Valencia County do not want late term abortion to be legal here. But late-term abortion doctors do, and they know Sanchez will do their bidding if they fund his campaign.” Read the full press release by the Republican Party of New Mexico here.

In addition to abortionist Curtis Boyd, Michael Sanchez is also funded by communist trained abortionist Carmen Laundau who also works with Boyd and Joan Garbagni the clinic manager at Southwestern Women’s Options. The University of New Mexico has several of their abortionists funding Sanchez’s campaign: UNM’s top abortionist Eve Espey along with other UNM abortionists, Larry Leeman and Joseph (Tony) Ogburn. Naral Pro-Choice New Mexico is also funding the Senate Majority Leader.

Fr. Stephen Imbarrato: The Protest Priest with Priests For Life issued the following statement, “As a Catholic leader, I feel it is an act of charity to challenge Senator Sanchez to turn away from his denial of Catholic teaching. Jesus desires that all be saved!”

Please join us in calling Senator Michael Sanchez to repent of his pro-abortion stance and actions. Encourage him to return donations made to him by members of Albuquerque’s abortion cartel and to affirm his faith in supporting and not hindering pro-life legislation.
