Our investigative work over the past 8 years has culminated with a New Mexico Medical Board investigation into the abortion related death of a local woman who died during a late term abortion performed by Curtis Boyd at Southwestern Women’s Options. Our prayer is that Curtis Boyd will be stripped of his New Mexico medical license thereby shuttering Southwestern Women’s Options permanently and ending Late Term Abortion in New Mexico!
We received confirmation from the New Mexico Medical Board (NMMB), dated March 2, 2018, 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.
Curtis Boyd owns Southwestern Women’s Options, the largest late term abortion center in the country, which is located in Albuquerque, NM. An undercover investigation done by Abortion Free New Mexico exposed that at Southwestern Women’s Options a woman can obtain an abortion up to 37 weeks of pregnancy for $17,000. Curtis Boyd has readily admitted on national television that he knows that he is killing babies.
The letter from the New Mexico Medical Board dated March 2, 2018 addressed to Tara Shaver states in part,
"[The] New Mexico Medical Board received your complaint against Curtis Boyd, M.D. on 12/18/2017, and was forwarded to the Executive Committee for their review and determination on whether or not a formal investigation is warranted. The Board’s Executive Committee have reviewed the complaint and have determined that the allegations contained in it warrant further formal review to determine whether the licensee is in violation of the Medical Practice Act."
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.”
We will continue our work uncovering and documenting abortion abuses at Southwestern Women’s Options and abortion killing centers across New Mexico with the goal of holding them accountable and see these abortion businesses closed.
