I’m running so that I can be a voice for women in New Mexico and in District 1 who feel like they have been sidelined – when it comes to reproductive freedom and access to contraception, the attack on women needs fierce, organized opposition. I will be there and I’m ready to take on the Administration and any judicial nominee who would threaten our access to abortion.”

Washington, D.C.- Red Rose Rescuer’s Bud Shaver, Fr. Stephen Imbarrato and Lauren Handy appeared in the Washington D.C. Superior court on July 23, 2019 for their March 19, 2019 Red Rose Rescue that took place at the notorious late term abortion center, Washington Surgi-Clinic. In a major victory, all charges against them have been dismissed.  Washington Surgi-Clinic performs abortions on babies beyond 27 weeks of pregnancy.

During a Red Rose Rescue devout Christians enter abortion facilities with red roses to distribute to pregnant mother’s that are present for their abortion appointments. Being present in the facility allows the rescuers to be prayerful and intentional as they sit with these women and urge them to leave and accept the help that is readily available to them. Red Rose Rescuers also serve to stand in solidarity with the babies that will be killed at the request of their own parents. These rescues are just one way that Christians can heed the call of Christ to carry their own cross and follow him.

Fr. Stephen Imbarrato issued the following statement,

“I’m glad the Red Rose Rescue charges were dismissed because of course we did nothing wrong. We are merely trying to save babies and bring more attention in Washington D.C. to the daily mass murder of pre-born children that is sanctioned, protected and funded by our government. Looking ahead, we also hope and pray that pending charges against another Red Rose Rescue Team who went into Capital Women’s Services in D.C. on March 19th are also dismissed at their trial that is scheduled for September 19, 2019.”


“Red Rose Rescuers have charges dismissed in the morning for March 19th Rescue and return to the Cesar Santangelo Surgi-clinic location in the afternoon to pray. Bud, Lauren, and I are joined by Matt Connelly who has also rescued in DC and elsewhere.” Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, director of

Bud Shaver issued the following statement,

“I am so thankful that the charges against us have been dismissed as myself, Fr. Stephen and Lauren Handy merely followed our conscience and acted on behalf of the innocent pre-born babies who die daily in our nation’s capital and across America. Instead of spending 7 days in jail, which was what I anticipated, we will continue to be with the Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust for activism events in Washington D.C. and for bowling at the White House. Thank you to everyone who has prayed for and supported us in our efforts.”

Albuquerque, NM- Last week during our peaceful Faith to Action Friday presence I witnessed a 180 conversion of a man who was convicted by our presence and what he saw on a sign. I was approached by this man who felt that he needed to point out how hypocritical pro-life Christians are. What drew him out to talk to me though was the image of a 20 week old abortion victim (photo below). He immediately began to lecture me about how horrific the image was and insisted that I needed to remove it. Coming face to face with the reality that abortion kills children is hard for many to swallow, it cuts to the core of a person.

While I wholeheartedly agreed with him about how tragic the image was, I explained to him that instead of censoring the true nature of abortion, what our community needs is to see abortion for what it really is and to then peacefully work to end it. As I stood in front of the University of New Mexico’sCenter for Reproductive Health abortion center, I also pointed out to him that our tax dollars are funding what he saw on the sign as well as an entrenched radical abortion agenda at this public institution. 

  • It’s important to point out that he assumed/knew that we were Christians! (Because who else would peacefully confront our culture of death in the public square?)

As the conversation continued he proceeded to ask the typical three questions that the pro-abortion community loves to bring up to deflect the real issue at hand: 

1. How many children have we adopted?
2. Do you oppose war?
3. As a man you can’t have an abortion so why are you out here?

On the first question, I quickly pointed out that the pro-life community has the best track record of adopting children. I mentioned that the state of Alabama, which recently enacted a law banning virtually all abortions in the state, also leads the nation for adoption.

I explained to him that we as a pro-life movement want to ban abortion outright because we really do care about all children. As I pointed to the abortion victim, I asked him “how can you claim to care about children if you support the brutal violence of abortion that this image alone depicts”?

He then abruptly shifted to asking why I wasn’t opposed to war and working to stop all wars. I simply agreed with him about the horror of war atrocities such as the killing of innocent people. I asked him to think about what is so tragic about war? He said “bloody violence” and then went on to point to the sign and say “Like that.” In that moment a light bulb turned on for him and he immediately saw my point about the atrocity of abortion. I pointed out to him that abortion is the biggest war that has ever been waged in our country and has killed the most innocent people, over 60,000,000 since 1973. This is the most preeminent injustice that we need to end as a nation. He agreed!

And just like that the conversation shifted again and he asked why as a man I was discussing abortion since men can’t have abortions? I have to admit I was waiting for him to ask that because it’s ALWAYS brought up! I responded, recently a presidential candidate brought up the fact that not only does he support a woman’s right to have an abortion but that he also supports a “trans” man’sright to have an abortion. 

I’m not kidding watch for yourself…

This fallacious argument of attacking men is officially over! If men can NOW have an abortion according to Julian Castro, then men can NOW openly talk about abortion.

Suddenly he said, “AHHH you support Trump” and walked away!

Though I never mentioned president Donald Trump, I guess the thought of supporting our president was more than he could handle and he walked away.

Over the past 12 years I have had untold numbers of conversations just like this one, however, this one was unique in that it wasn’t over…

This Abortion Victim Image Brought Him to His Senses and Back to Apologize!

Several minutes later I was surprised when this man came rushing back over with tears in his eyes asking for our forgiveness and stated, “I came over to you to point out how hypocritical you were and how you need to get that horrific sign out of here but now I realize I was the hypocrite and THAT sign made all the difference! Thank you for representing Jesus and Christianity so boldly!” 

He went on to confide in us that one of his girlfriends had gotten an abortion and that ever since, he felt that he needed to defend abortion. But now because of the sign and our conversation, he sees it as the true violence and injustice that it really is! We hugged and shook hands. I went on to tell him that the reason I always try to have an abortion victim image displayed during our prayer and outreach is because like with him, it changes minds instantly and saves lives when abortion minded women see what will really happens to their baby if they choose abortion.

Numerous women have told me personally that the abortion victim image was the only thing that convinced them not to have an abortion and stopped them even after driving hundreds of miles to come to Albuquerque for a late-term procedure…

It’s true that a picture speaks louder than words and pictures are a powerful educational tool against those who want to conceal and sterilize the term abortion. Instead of some vague misunderstanding about abortion as a controversial issue never to be mentioned, people must have these pictures in their mind as the impetus for demanding that this violent injustice to end.
