Albuquerque, NM- New Mexico is the late term abortion capital of America and is drawing women from all 50 states and beyond for abortions through all nine months of pregnancy. Due to this fact Albuquerque is also the protest capital of America because of the sustained efforts of Protest ABQ.
On November 18, 2014 Protest ABQ, along with other major pro-life groups, announced it’s national call to action consisting of two days of protest and the first ever national strike throughout the pro-life community. Protest ABQ has been protesting and exposing those in New Mexico who support, condone and profit from the abortion industry. These protests will continue and culminate to the national protest and strike on January 22-23, 2015.
The term “protest” sometimes bears negative connotations, but as can be seen from the simple dictionary definition, “protest” serves a noble purpose: “to declare by speaking out with words or action, expressing earnestly our disapproval.”
Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, Founder of Protest ABQ is encouraging all like-minded people of conscience to begin their protests now and issued the following statement, “There is no reason why every community across this nation does not begin protesting those who support, condone and profit from the abortion industry today and everyday. In fact, everything I do in my pro-life ministry, I do in protest of pre-born child killing.”These protests should be peaceful and prayerful and ultimately culminate in the national protests and a strike on January 22-23, 2015.
