New Mexico Leaders Must Stand Up for the Babies
JUNE NEWSLETTER 2016- Dear Pro-Life Friend,
God continues to move in New Mexico in ways that only He can. A bright moment this month came when the US Select Panel that subpoenaed UNM and Southwestern Women’s Options announced that a criminal referral had been issued to our Attorney General based on their findings.
Essentially they believe that laws have been violated and they have asked local authorities to investigate further and yield justice where appropriate.
This could not be a coincidence and is just the God-given reinforcements we’ve needed for years. In fact 11 months ago we filed a formal complaint with the New Mexico Attorney General and never heard back from his office… Well they can’t ignore the U.S. Congress!
Praise God for his providence and please join us in praying that NM Attorney General Balderas does what is right and fulfills his duty.
The battle is far from over but with God on our side and through prayer and perseverance the NM abortion cartel will be exposed and held accountable.
Protest ABQ Drops Postcards Exposing Religious Pro-Abortion Democrat Senators
This month Protest ABQ mailed postcards (front of the postcard pictured below) throughout the districts of several pro-abortion religious Democrat State Senators. These politicians, the majority of whom are Catholic, defy their faith by supporting pre-born child killing.
The constituents of these elected officials deserve to know that they are “putting politics before Jesus and his babies and this is a form of idolatry!” stated Fr. Stephen Imbarrato of Priests for Life (his quote was included on the back of the postcard). We cannot allow leaders in the state to ignore this reality that has so negatively impacted New Mexico. We have seen what that has gotten us, unrestricted abortion up to the day of birth and an apathy that is deafening. Please pray for the senators who so adamantly oppose human life.
Rejoice Despite Persecution
When you embark on God’s calling for your life He said persecution would come (2 Tim. 3:12), at least for us it’s been true. We’re a young Christian family simply living out a biblical worldview in a city which desperately needs faith AND action. However, we are labeled domestic terrorists and are accused of inciting violence, even though our ministry has been completely peaceful and free from violence on our part.
Over the years we have received death threats by mail, at our home and when we first began our pro-life ministry back in Arizona we were even fired from our job simply for being Christians and answering God’s call for our life.
This month however we are being evicted from our home because of all of the above misconceptions about who we really are.
We need your help as we are being abruptly displaced (unless God does a miracle at the last minute), only three weeks after moving into the home, we are now being kicked out of. This is how pro-aborts treat a Christian family with three small children, and according to them we’re the crazy unloving ones!
Here’s how you can help, ours needs are:
-New or increased monthly donors.
-A Christian landlord or leads on a rental property.
-Your committed prayers for the safety of our family.
Thank you for your prayers and to those of you who faithfully and sacrificially give, we couldn’t do this important work without you. God’s Peace Be with YOU!
All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Acts 2:44-45

Protest ABQ’s Response To SCOTUS Decision And Its Implications On New Mexico
While the SCOTUS decision undermines the good work of the pro-life community in Texas; in New Mexico, the late term abortion capital of the nation, the door still remains open to pass constitutional legislation regulating third trimester abortion facility Southwestern Women’s Options. We are determined to keep pressing forward and to make every effort to protect both mom and baby.
Here is an analysis by Protest ABQ’s chief leading counsel on the ruling handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court:
Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt
The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision, issued, [June 27, 2016] in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, while disappointing is not as sweeping as the media and pro-abortion advocates would have you believe. Significantly, the decision appears to apply only to the regulation of “pre-viability” abortions. As the age of viability continues to move closer to conception, the legal framework put in place by Roe v. Wade and its progeny is still on a collision course with itself…
