2019 Year In Review: Top 10 Highlights

2019 Year In Review: Top 10 Highlights

Dear Pro- Life Friends and Ministry Partners,

It is hard to believe that 2019 has come and gone. It has been such a busy and productive year for our family and our ministry, the time has simply flown by. Your partnership with us in this life saving ministry has kept us encouraged and has made it possible for us to serve full time as missionaries in New Mexico, the late term abortion capital. When the lives of precious babies are on the line we must never sit on the sidelines, too much is at stake.

Thank you for believing in us, our mission to make New Mexico Abortion Free and for blessing us with your time, talents and your treasure. May we continue to sow into a culture of life in 2020 as we anticipate a pivotal moment in our country.

May God bless you and keep you and may His face shine upon you!

#10- Nationwide Project With Operation Rescue

This month we partnered with Operation Rescue in their annual project to call every abortion mill in the country. The data collected is used widely to show that the numbers of abortion mills continue to decrease. We’ll share the full results soon…

#9- Faith to Action Friday

Was launched to expose UNM’s radical abortion agenda. Prayers were lifted up on location and lives were saved!

Resolve to Protest More in the New Year 2020!

Joined locals in protesting the lack of justice in New Mexico for abused  children, born & pre-born.

We were at churches and events this year registering voters for the 2020 election. We also helped Michelle Garcia Holmes get on the ballot for US Congress 2020!

We went to our nation’s capital, Washington D.C., for prayer and repentance with Holy Nation and then joined Survivorsfor 10 days of activism in Washington D.C.

Bud joined Fr. Stephen Imbarrato: The Protest Priest for a Red Rose Rescue in the nation’s capital. The clinic was shut down for 5 hours, they spent 5 hours in jail & ultimately the charges were dismissed!

#1- Opposed Pro-Death Agenda

We were blessed to join the faith community in opposing the Pro-Death Agenda in Santa Fe. Catholic Democrats joined the GOP and defeated HB 51.

Looking Ahead to Start 2020 Strong 

We are so grateful to those of you who through faithful prayer and support made 2019 a blessed year of ministry for our family. As we look to 2020 we already have some big plans and projects that will bring us closer to an abortion free state. Please pray for wisdom for us and our team as we strategize and that the Lord will guide our steps. 

Please consider setting up a secure tax deductible monthly donation securely onlineto help us with the efforts we have planned. A monthly gift of $20.20 would be such a blessing to us and the babies we aim to protect in 2020. 

Any amount you give is an investment into an Abortion Free New Mexico. Thank you for standing with us.

Thank you for standing with us for life and truth! 

“Therefore we ought to support people like these, that we may be fellow workers for the truth.” (3 John 1:8) 

We are a Christian missionary family serving in Albuquerque, NM. Putting our faith into action, for the past 9 years we have exposed Albuquerque as the late term abortion capital of the nation and have worked to bring accountability to an unregulated abortion industry that is killing children in their mothers wombs up to the day of birth.

In order to be the most effective in our pro-life ministry, we do this important work full time while homeschooling our children and raising them to have a biblical worldview. We rely solely on the provision of the Lord and individuals like you to provide for our daily needs.

We are pursuing and working toward an abortion free New Mexico, where every pre-born child is valued and protected.

We would be blessed to have you partner with us in this ministry. Your prayers and support are invaluable.

We Are Too Mr. President!

We Are Too Mr. President!

Dear Pro- Life Friends and Ministry Partners,

As 2019 comes to an end we want to thank you for your prayers and support on behalf of our family and our pro-life ministry.

  • Our 2019 Year In Review: Top Ten Highlights are coming soon…

Being a full time pro-life missionary family serving in New Mexico since 2010 has been a blessing in so many ways. We have laid a firm foundation by identifying and exposing the key players in the New Mexico abortion cartel, held leaders accountable on both sides of the aisle and have put Albuquerque on the map as the late term abortion capital- a reputation that we’re working so hard to get rid of.

With your help over the years four abortion facilities in New Mexico have closed, leaving only five in the state. Together we will see these facilities close as Bud and I work to uncover their weak links and file complaints with authorities who can strip away the abortionists licenses and close their doors for good.

President Donald Trump recently tweeted,

“25 Million Evangelical Christians are not registered to vote. We are working hard to get them registered! Robert Jeffress, Lou Dobbs.”


This year, Tara became more active in registering New Mexico voters as we have visited numerous churches. So far, she has registered 51 voters. In addition, we have helped Michelle Garcia Holmes collect hundreds of signatures to help get her on the ballot for the 2020 election. We look forward to visiting even more churches to register voters and to educate the body of Christ about how we’re working to end abortion in our state and how they can be involved. 

  • Please contact us if you’d like to invite us to your church anytime between now and November 2020.

There is still so much to be done, but with your one-time and monthly support we will be able to keep going strong in our efforts to make New Mexico Abortion Free. 

We are so grateful for your support, and hope to see you in the new year. 

If you’d like to sow into our Ministry with a year-end gift you can do so here. Your gift is fully tax-deductible and helps us continue in our mission.

P.S. Resolve to Protest More in the New Year 2020!

Please join us this Friday, January 3rd from 12PM-1PM for Faith to Action Friday, as we pray and peacefully protest outside of the University of New Mexico’s free standing abortion facility.

“It only takes an hour to make a lasting difference and have an impact for LIFE. Now more than ever, we need to pray collectively, publicly, and strategically.  Our presence has the ability to reform The University of New Mexico – UNM  so that they get out of the abortion business!” Bud Shaver, Abortion Free New Mexico

Abortion is their dirty little secret that must be exposed.

Winter Time Change Faith To Action Friday (12PM-1PM)

Winter Time Change Faith To Action Friday (12PM-1PM)

By Bud Shaver

Albuquerque, NM- When Abortion Free New Mexico launched Faith to Action Friday seven months ago, we committed just one hour a week to prayer and protest at the University of New Mexico’s free standing abortion killing center. The UNM Center for Reproductive Health is using our tax dollars (as a publicly funded institution) to promote their radical abortion agenda that is killing babies up to 24 weeks gestation! 

Jesus to his disciples in his darkest hour, “Couldn’t you keep watch with me for one hour?” Matthew 26:40

While an hour of prayer seems so minimal of a commitment, it meant so much to Jesus in his darkest hour and it means everything to the babies scheduled for death at UNM.

Starting on December 6th we will be joining together for Faith to Action Friday during the lunch hour from 12-1PM 

“It only takes an hour to make a lasting difference and have an impact for LIFE. Now more than ever, we need to pray collectively, publicly, and strategically. Our presence has the ability to reform The University of New Mexico – UNM so that they get out of the abortion business!”

Bud Shaver, Abortion Free New Mexico

Abortion is their dirty little secret that must be exposed.

Let’s stand together for life and strategically step out in faith to transform our community.

  • Join us  for “Faith to Action Friday” on December 6th from 12-1PM
  • The UNMCRH free standing abortion clinic is located at 2301 Yale Blvd in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
  • Parking is available on Renard (off Yale)
  • ​Everyone is welcome to join us for this peaceful presence.​

UNM is at the heart of the abortion cartel in New Mexico, as a publicly funded institution UNM consistently promotes a culture of death and is actively training the next generation of abortionists…
