The Battle For Life Continues In New Mexico

The Battle For Life Continues In New Mexico


By Bud Shaver

Albuquerque, New Mexico- We hope this update finds you doing well and very blessed by the Lord. This month we welcomed Enoch Shaver into our family. He was born on April 14, 2021. Tara and baby Enoch are doing well. We also continued to fight for life in the late-term abortion capital of America. Tara had the opportunity to speak to a global audience as she was interviewed on the Infowars show, The American Journal! 

“By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death. For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God.” (Hebrews 11:5)

Tara Shaver Testifies Before The UNM Board of Regents and UNM President

The day before Enoch was born Tara spoke before the UNM Board of Regents virtual meeting. She wanted to specifically address comments previously made by Regent Schwartz, who during the last meeting said that the Regents celebrate the killing of innocent children who are aborted at UNM’s free standing abortion facility. See below Tara’s comment and please continue to pray that the Lord will move mountains to close this abortion facility.

“Good morning everyone, I am a resident of Bernallilo county and long time advocate of pregnant women facing unplanned pregnancies.  I wanted to speak today in response to some of the comments made by Regent Schwartz, about UNM’s free standing abortion facility, at the regents meeting in February. 
First of all, I appreciate that he pointed out that we should debate abortion and I believe that to be true because every abortion is a crime against humanity and takes the life of an unborn child. This is truly the preeminent human rights violation. I was alarmed though by his statement that, the work of the UNM abortion facility the Center for Reproductive Health should be, ‘celebrated’. 
You see the services that he mentioned that are being offered at this facility are offered at  many other healthcare providers throughout our state with the exception of providing abortion services up to 24 weeks of pregnancy, when a baby can live outside the womb.  So when he stated that family planning, birth control for both men and women, and pregnancy options are available, those really only speak to preventing pregnancy. It is however, the fact, that the UNM Center for Reproductive Health doesn’t actually help women who want to get pregnant, or who have fertility issues and want to conceive but  their work is just the complete opposite. 
The UNM Center for Reproductive Health’s agenda is to prevent pregnancy by any means possible including dismembering children in the womb up to 6 months of pregnancy. How can we celebrate that, how can anyone in UNM leadership celebrate this? I disagree with regents Schwartz when he said that, ‘heroes do work at the UNM Center for Reproductive Health’ because these physicians who participate in the taking of innocent human life have betrayed true medicine. He said, ‘they offer extraordinary and compassionate care’ but each time an abortion procedure is done, one life is snuffed out forever and one patient is ignored completely. 
Regent Swartz recently stated, ‘we are either going to have to cut the athletic budget at least to some extent or we are going to cut the academic budget, because there are not enough resources to cover everything across the board.’ 
At a time when UNM is considering tuition increases and cutting athletic programs, it would make more sense to get rid of the entities that are the least beneficial to the university. The Center for Reproductive Health is a non life saving entity and would be a good place to start. I would like to reiterate that the board of regents needs to take action and listen to the residents, the citizens, the students who make UNM a reality and close down this abortion facility. I would also like to hear from other regents on this issue. Thank you.”

“It’s important for us to remember that even in the midst of a crisis we must maintain our unalienable rights as American citizens. We forfeit these rights if we don’t use them. 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 

Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico Joins the Info War!

Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico joined Harrison Smith this month on “The American Journal” to discuss the current state of abortions in New Mexico, and how a culture of tourism to Albuquerque led to a skyrocketing rise in abortion since the pandemic began. Here’s a profound statement from Harrison Smith, host of The American Journal:
“Some of what you said in the last segment really got me thinking. What you do is really, almost the most literal aspect of the Info War, because your main focus is research and basically figuring out the weak links as you put it. You have the Project Weak Link that people can find out about by going to and it’s about research and finding the information you can use to try and stop this literal industry of death that is taking place in New Mexico. This is on the ground in the trenches information war against a death cult. I think it is so valuable, what you do. Thank you so much for coming on, you are doing God’s work in the most literal way that I could ever express it! Truly incredible stuff, saving lives, saving babies, and hopefully making a better future for all of us. ”
