BREAKING: Curtis Boyd Under Investigation by New Mexico Medical Board

We received confirmation from the New Mexico Medical Board (NMMB) this month that they have launched an investigation into the death of a local Albuquerque woman who died on February 4, 2017 as a result of complications suffered during a late term abortion performed by Curtis Boyd.

Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue issued the following statement,

“We commend Tara Shaver and Abortion Free New Mexico for their diligent work in documenting this abortion patient death and the suspicious circumstances that surrounds it. The fact that the very liberal NMMB is pursuing an investigation into Boyd’s possible violations of the Medical Practice Act validates Shaver’s concerns and ours about his negligent conduct,” said Newman. “Keisha Atkins deserves justice and her family deserves closure. We are cautiously hopeful that this new investigation will accomplish both.”

Congressman Steve Pearce who is running unopposed on the Republican ticket for Governor of New Mexico in 2018 issued the following statement,

“New Mexico Medical Board has officially launched an investigation into Curtis Boyd, owner of Southwestern Women’s Options, following the death of an Albuquerque woman who suffered from complications during a late term abortion. This investigation into Boyd, who performed the abortion, is rightfully happening after much delay. I have been in the fight to uphold the law and protect freedoms and liberties of women in New Mexico and across the nation. No one is above the law, and it is time we hold those accountable for their wrongful actions.”


Abortion Free New Mexico released an undercover video that gives a rare look from inside the nation’s largest late term abortion facility, Southwestern Women’s Options. This video is 5 minutes long and combines raw footage of dialogue with clinic staff and also exclusive interviews with the undercover investigator detailing her unique account of what it was like to go inside of a late term abortion center while pregnant at 37 weeks gestation.



Church Militant wrote up an extentive report about this latest project and an exclusive profile piece about our work over the past 7 years here in Albuquerque, New Mexico…

In Abortion Free New Mexico’s latest undercover project that has taken viewers inside the notorious Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO) late term abortion facility, the investigation has also uncovered that the University of New Mexico (UNM), a publicly funded institution, is willing to collude with late term abortionists to deliver dead babies at UNM Hospital once a deadly injection is administered by abortionists at SWO.

Complaint Filed: Planned Parenthood Nurse Breaking NM Law By Performing Abortions

In 2016 we filed a formal complaint with the New Mexico Nursing Board against Vivianne Clark. Clark is a Registered Nurse, license number RN-71112 who is employed by Planned Parenthood of New Mexico.

New Mexico law states that only licensed physicians can perform abortions. Vivianne Clark is not a licensed physician and is therefore in violation of New Mexico’s Criminal Abortion Statute, NMSA Section 30-5-1, et seq.  Medicaid data obtained through a public records request indicates that since 2012, New Mexico taxpayers have footed the bill for over 200 illegal abortions performed by Vivianne Clark.

In 2013 alone Vivianne Clark performed 91 illegal abortions and was paid over $11,000 from New Mexico Medicaid. Clark has been reimbursed by New Mexico medicaid from 2012 through 2015 for abortions she performed in the first and second trimesters, up to 24 weeks of pregnancy.

Tara Shaver, who trained with Operation Rescue for a year in Wichita, obtained records of over a dozen 911 calls placed from Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO) showing gross life-threatening complications, including a ruptured uterus during a 35-week abortion. Tara also discovered that state tax dollars pay for these late-term procedures at the cost of thousands of dollars each. She also obtained a consent form from SWO, in 2012 from a woman injured from a late term abortion, where the abortion business admits that abortions after 18 weeks are more dangerous than live birth, which is contradicts the usual pro-abortion talking points.

  • Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO) consent form clearly states:

“The risk of terminating a pregnancy gradually increases throughout the course of pregnancy. These comparative risks become approximately equal at 16-18 weeks of pregnancy and increase so that pregnancy termination at 18 weeks and above involves a greater risk than carring the pregnancy to term.”

​In July 2015, Protest ABQ filed a formal criminal complaint with the Attorney General of New Mexico and two consent forms, one obtained by Pro-Life Witness from 2012 and a newly obtained consent form, which was obtained by Protest ABQ,  this year 2015 from Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO) were submitted as proof of their using aborted baby body parts in medical research.

  • Both consent forms from 2012 and 2015 that state: “pregnancy tissue may be used in medical research.”
BREAKING: Southwestern Women’s Options is currently under criminal investigation by the New Mexico Attorney General for being the SOLE provider of baby body parts to the University of New Mexico for experimental research.
Below is the 2015 consent form that you can view for yourself and feel free to download, print and share it with others. Also we have compiled several reports, undercover investigations, and video’s.

Injury-Prone New Mexico Abortion Clinics Operate In Shadows of Regulatory Gaps

“A shocking number of medical emergencies at two Albuquerque abortion clinics over the past few months have raised questions about clinic safety and who is responsible for oversight.
