Official Launch of Abortion Free New Mexico on April 18th

By Tara Shaver

Protest ABQ was a campaign that was intended to only last a season, until the fruit of our protest efforts produced an environment where we can accomplish our ultimate goal: Abortion Free: New Mexico…

Albuquerque, NM —Now that the Protest ABQ campaign has concluded, this does not mean that we are folding or backing down in ANY way. The protest efforts over the past 3 years have helped to produce a dramatic reversal and promising public policy shift in New Mexico. Now is the season for implementing proven strategies that will result in New Mexico becoming, Abortion Free.

As Pro-Life Missionaries, serving in New Mexico since 2010 our research and public awareness efforts have helped to expose that New Mexico is drawing women from all across the world and America to obtain barbaric late-term abortions that are illegal in their own hometowns. New Mexico is now known nationally as the late-term abortion capital. In addition, we have uncovered horrific conditions inside New Mexico abortion facilities, tax funded atrocities, and an unregulated out-of control abortion cartel that is operating without oversight or common sense regulations.

While God has accomplished so much through the prayers and support of so many, there is still more work to be done. We are now moving into the next phase to build upon the foundation that has been laid over the past 7 years…

Bud and Tara Shaver will host a special evening dedicated to making New Mexico abortion free on April 18th and will be the official launch of Abortion Free New Mexico.

Speakers Include:
-Troy Newman and Cheryl Sullenger, Operation Rescue Leaders
-Pastor Clarence Washington, Abundant Life Church
-Pastors Manny and Grace Lardizabal
and more…

Abortion Free is a proven strategy fine tuned over the past two decades by Operation Rescue leaders Troy Newman and Cheryl Sullenger. When abortion facilities close utilizing peaceful tactics and the abortion industry is exposed and convicted of the plethora of crimes that they are committing behind closed doors, lives are saved and communities become, Abortion Free!

Protest ABQ Campaign Comes An End

Protest ABQ Campaign Comes An End

By Tara Shaver

Albuquerque, NM —Protest ABQ was officially launched in 2014 with the goals of educating the public to the fact that New Mexico had become the late-term abortion capital of the country and that the University of New Mexico (UNM) was the heart of the abortion cartel in the state. In addition, we wanted to expose and hold accountable those who either condone abortion outright or silently consent to it by refusing to take a bold public stand for protecting human life in the womb.

Our call was simple and concise…

“Stand Up For The Babies
And We Will Stand Down”

Bud Shaver, executive director of Protest ABQ issued the following statement,

“Protest ABQ’s tireless efforts over the past three years have helped to produce a dramatic reversal and promising public policy shift in New Mexico. Now in 2017 we are grateful that political leaders have stepped up with solid pro-life bills over the past two legislative sessions and have committed to carrying pro-life legislation until abortion is completely eradicated in the state. The University of New Mexico has been exposed nationally as one of the most abortion friendly universities in the entire country and UNM’s collusion with the nations largest late-term abortion killing center is now under criminal investigation. In addition, we appreciate the religious leaders both Evangelical and Catholic who have recently demonstrated a willingness to publicly stand up for the babies, so we are standing down.”

Protest ABQ was a campaign that was intended to only last a season, until the fruit of our protest efforts produced an environment where we can accomplish our ultimate goal:

Abortion Free: New Mexico. 

Stay tuned…

When our small family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico five years ago, virtually no one knew about late-term abortions taking place up to the day of birth here. In fact most people we talked to didn’t even know that these abortions were even legal!

Our tireless work, groundbreaking research, and implementation of proven strategies has launched Albuquerque, New Mexico into the national spotlight…As the “Late-Term Abortion Capital of the Nation!”

We have redefined the American “Mission Field” and our efforts as Pro-Life Missionaries have been featured in virtually EVERY major news source in the country: CNN, MSNBC, The Associated Press, The New York Times, The Washington Times, The Los Angeles Times, TIME, Talking Points Memo, The Wall Street Journal, VICE, National Review, Breitbart, World Net Daily, WORLD Magazine, and COSMOPOLITAN…just to name a few!

Since moving to Albuquerque, New Mexico in 2010 our work has consistently been featured among national Pro-Life efforts in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014:

Top Ten Victories of 2011:  National Pro-Life Victory #3 New Mexico Abortion Cartel Exposed: Together, the Shavers and Operation Rescue, uncovered and exposed a series of 911 calls that were evidence of life-threatening abortion complications at two Albuquerque abortion clinics. Complaints were filed with the Medical Board and the investigation into these unsafe clinics is progressing. In addition, the role of the University of New Mexico in the abortion industry has been fully documented, and efforts are underway to convince the UNM Regents to cease all participation in abortion and abortion training.

Year in Review: Top Ten Victories from 2012 Shelley Sella, faced a disciplinary hearing before the New Mexico Medical Board in November for gross negligence in a 35week abortion where Sella overused uterine contracting drugs on a woman with a history of a previous Caesarian Section, resulting in a ruptured uterus. The injury was discovered when former OR intern Tara Shaver obtained the 911 call records. OR and Mrs. Shaver filed complaints resulting in the Board action.

2014:Group launches new anti-abortion campaign” (KOB Eyewitness News 4) Protest ABQ The Protest ABQ campaign culminated in the First EVER National Pro-Life Strike Jan. 22-23, 2015. The Protest ABQ campaign has been attributed by national pro-life groups for the dramatic political reversal in New Mexico, “Dramatic Reversal: Abortion Protests Lead to Promising Public Policy Shift in New Mexico” also, “Tectonic Political Shift in New Mexico Prompts Life-Saving Pro-Life Legislation.”

In fact, as I am writing this, the 20 week Late-Term Abortion Ban just passed the second NM House committee and will now proceed to the House floor for a vote! This is one of the ONLY pro-life bills to ever make it to the NM House floor for an up or down vote in New Mexico in over 60 years!
