Press Conference Thursday, November 29th at 10:00am at the New Mexico Medical Society
Albuquerque, NM- The New Mexico Medical Board is acting on complaints filed by Tara Shaver of Project Defending Life and Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue by holding a hearing for late term abortionist Shelley Sella on Thursday, November 29th. Medical Board documents state that Sella violated the standard of care by conducting the dangerous 35-week abortion in a clinic setting instead of a hospital and gross negligence by disregarding the patient’s history of a previous Caesarean Section delivery. A Caesarean Section weakens the uterus, increasing the risks of rupture during subsequent labors. Sella is also accused of over-using uterine stimulants, which contributed to the life-threatening rupture. The hearing will determine what, if any, disciplinary action the Board will take, which could include suspension or revocation of Sella’s New Mexico medical license.
“Women come to Albuquerque from all over the US seeking late-term abortions that are illegal elsewhere only to be placed in grave danger by the negligent incompetence of Shelley Sella. Full term abortions are barbaric and dangerous acts that have no place in a civilized society. When you add in an abortionist that carelessly ignores serious health risk factors, you have a public health disaster. The New Mexico Medical Board is correct to institute disciplinary proceedings against Sella and we call on the Board to revoke Sella’s medical license in the interest of public safety.” Cheryl Sullenger, Operation Rescue
Even though the hearing is closed to the public Tara Shaver and Cheryl Sullenger will be holding a press conference Thursday November 29th at 10:00am at the New Mexico Medical Society located at 316 Osuna Rd NE in Albuquerque.
