Protest ABQ Is Headed to #OperationRNC

Protest ABQ Is Headed to #OperationRNC


“The eyes of the world will be focused on Cleveland, OH this summer as the GOP nominates their candidate for the President of the United States. Decisions will be made at the convention that will influence our nation for a generation. A coalition of pro-life groups and activists is forming to take advantage of this historic opportunity to collectively raise our voice for the preborn. We demand the Republican Party continue to defend the preborn, but we are also calling our nation to repent for 43 years of unabated child killing.” ~Mark Harrington, National Director of Created Equal

Cleveland, OH- Protest ABQ will be joining Created EqualOperation RescueSurvivors of the Abortion HolocaustCitizens for A Pro-Life Society, Rev. Mahoney, Fr. Stephen Imbarrato: The Protest Priest and several more pro-life organizations in Cleveland, Ohio (July 13-15) for the run-up to the Republican National Convention (RNC).

Activists from all across the nation will join together in solidarity demanding the Republican Party strip Planned Parenthood of public funding. We want the $540,000,000 of tax dollars currently given to Planned Parenthood to be redirected to 13,000 federally licensed health clinics which provide true comprehensive women’s health care. These clinics provide a greater variety of services and choices to women than Planned Parenthood and are not under federal investigation.

It is imperative that the GOP Platform Committee hears the voice of the people and our desire for Planned Parenthood to be dufunded and pre-born children to be protected.

Bud Shaver, Executive Director of Protest ABQ issued the following statement, “Now is the time for the Republican Party to take a bold stand for human life and defund the nation’s abortion giant, Planned Parenthood. With the Democratic Party proposing a radical pro-abortion platform which is out of touch with the moral compass of the American people, it is vitally important for the Republican Party to build a platform that gives Americans an opportunity to vote according to their conscience this November.”

Live Action News Reveals UNM Abortion Masterminds

Live Action News Reveals UNM Abortion Masterminds


By Bud Shaver

According to a report by Live Action News:

“It was the best of times (for abortionists). It was the worst of times (for babies).

The House Select Panel on Infant Lives produced a 291-page document that was used to refer the University of New Mexico to the state’s attorney general for potential criminal charges regarding alleged fetal tissue donation violations. The background of the University of New Mexico’s involvement in abortion is revealed to be a focused plot between two doctors. Two persistent, abortion-focused doctors, Doctor #1 and Doctor #2, were the masterminds in a massive abortion plan.”

Live Action News reveals the identity of Doctor’s #1 and #2 as…


#1- Eve Espey


 #2- Larry Leeman

“Espey and Leeman are the masterminds behind the university-sanctioned bloodshed, continuing to influence others and multiply themselves even as they snuff out life in the name of education and research.”


Members of Protest ABQ have exposed and opposed the University of New Mexico’s radical abortion agenda and these two abortionists from UNM over the past 6 years, in fact back in 2011 Tara Shaver, Senior Policy Advisor for Protest ABQ wrote a groundbreaking exposé titled, “Tax Funded Abortion Training and the Betrayal of True Medicine at UNM” and a follow up report in 2014 titled, “Lobos of Death: A Look at the Radical Abortion Agenda at the University of New Mexico” uncovering a lot of the information that the U.S. House Select Committee is now including in their 291 page indictment submitted to New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas. In addition, Protest ABQ filed a formal complaint with NM Attorney General back in July of 2015 revealing baby parts harvesting in New Mexico which his office never responded to…well they can’t ignore the U.S. Congress!

Here is a compilation of reports of our efforts with the help of Operation Rescue, over the past 6 years, to expose the University of New Mexico (UNM) and these two abortionists (and others) as well as our public awareness efforts to oppose their betrayal of true medicine:

New Mexico Leaders Must Stand Up for the Babies

JUNE NEWSLETTER 2016- Dear Pro-Life Friend,

God continues to move in New Mexico in ways that only He can. A bright moment this month came when the US Select Panel that subpoenaed UNM and Southwestern Women’s Options announced that a criminal referral had been issued to our Attorney General based on their findings.

Essentially they believe that laws have been violated and they have asked local authorities to investigate further and yield justice where appropriate.

This could not be a coincidence and is just the God-given reinforcements we’ve needed for years. In fact 11 months ago we filed a formal complaint with the New Mexico Attorney General and never heard back from his office… Well they can’t ignore the U.S. Congress!

Praise God for his providence and please join us in praying that NM Attorney General Balderas does what is right and fulfills his duty.

The battle is far from over but with God on our side and through prayer and perseverance the NM abortion cartel will be exposed and held accountable.

New Mexico Baby Body Parts Scandal Timeline Recap

Protest ABQ Drops Postcards Exposing Religious Pro-Abortion Democrat Senators

This month Protest ABQ mailed postcards (front of the postcard pictured below) throughout the districts of several pro-abortion religious Democrat State Senators. These politicians, the majority of whom are Catholic, defy their faith by supporting pre-born child killing.

The constituents of these elected officials deserve to know that they are “putting politics before Jesus and his babies and this is a form of idolatry!” stated Fr. Stephen Imbarrato of Priests for Life (his quote was included on the back of the postcard). We cannot allow leaders in the state to ignore this reality that has so negatively impacted New Mexico. We have seen what that has gotten us, unrestricted abortion up to the day of birth and an apathy that is deafening. Please pray for the senators who so adamantly oppose human life.

Rejoice Despite Persecution

When you embark on God’s calling for your life He said persecution would come (2 Tim. 3:12), at least for us it’s been true. We’re a young Christian family simply living out a biblical worldview in a city which desperately needs faith AND action. However, we are labeled domestic terrorists and are accused of inciting violence, even though our ministry has been completely peaceful and free from violence on our part.

Over the years we have received death threats by mail, at our home and when we first began our pro-life ministry back in Arizona we were even fired from our job simply for being Christians and answering God’s call for our life.

This month however we are being evicted from our home because of all of the above misconceptions about who we really are.

We need your help as we are being abruptly displaced (unless God does a miracle at the last minute), only three weeks after moving into the home, we are now being kicked out of. This is how pro-aborts treat a Christian family with three small children, and according to them we’re the crazy unloving ones!

Here’s how you can help, ours needs are:

-New or increased monthly donors.

-A Christian landlord or leads on a rental property.

-Your committed prayers for the safety of our family.

Thank you for your prayers and to those of you who faithfully and sacrificially give, we couldn’t do this important work without you. God’s Peace Be with YOU! 

All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Acts 2:44-45

Protest ABQ’s Response To SCOTUS Decision And Its Implications On New Mexico

While the SCOTUS decision undermines the good work of the pro-life community in Texas; in New Mexico, the late term abortion capital of the nation, the door still remains open to pass constitutional legislation regulating third trimester abortion facility Southwestern Women’s Options. We are determined to keep pressing forward and to make every effort to protect both mom and baby.

Here is an analysis by Protest ABQ’s chief leading counsel on the ruling handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court:

Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt

The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision, issued, [June 27, 2016] in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, while disappointing is not as sweeping as the media and pro-abortion advocates would have you believe.  Significantly, the decision appears to apply only to the regulation of “pre-viability” abortions.  As the age of viability continues to move closer to conception, the legal framework put in place by Roe v. Wade and its progeny is still on a collision course with itself…
