Albuquerque, New Mexico- On Tuesday, June 9, 2020 sidewalk counselors outside the notorious late term abortion facility Southwestern Women's Options (SWO) witnessed a woman being rushed into an ambulance and transported to a nearby hospital. Shockingly, this is the 35th documented abortion injury at SWO since 2008!

According to eye witnesses, the patient was in a vehicle with California license plates.
Late term abortions are, unfortunately, performed through all nine months of pregnancy in New Mexico. Every Tuesday at Southwestern Women's Options the barbaric 3-4 day long late term abortion procedure is started on women who come to New Mexico (from all across the world) for what is known as Abortion Tourism. The barbaric procedure begins with an injection of digoxin into the woman's uterus which causes the baby to die from a fetal heart attack that reportedly takes several hours for the baby's heart to finally stop. Each day thereafter, the woman's cervix is artificially dilated so that she can give birth to her dead child on a Friday or Saturday.
Tara Shaver issued the following statement,
"At a time when businesses and Churches have been forced to close, abortion facilities remain open and at least two women have been injured. These injuries confirm that abortion is not healthcare and that these facilities are not even equipped to handle the complications that arise during such invasive elective procedures. Women and their children deserve better than abortion and Abortion Free New Mexico is working to provide accountability and a culture where these barbaric procedures are intolerable."
This is the second woman injured during a botched abortion in New Mexico since Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham refused to close non-essential abortion facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. On March 25, 2020 Southwest Coalition For Life witnessed a woman injured in Santa Teresa, New Mexico at Hill Top abortion facility run by abortionist Franz Theard.
That injury occurred two days after New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham's office released the following statement to Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico in response to our call to close non-essential elective abortion facilities,
"We have discussed this matter and the clinics are not going to close. Some people are claiming that abortions are elective surgeries and we are not considering them as elective surgeries. All the clinics are sanitizing very well and they are not going to close."
In addition to the 35 abortion injuries documented at Southwestern Women's Options, and the recent abortion injury documented in Santa Teresa, Abortion Free New Mexico has also documented an additional four botched abortions at the University of New Mexico's free-standing abortion facility UNM Center for Reproductive Health.

Albuquerque, New Mexico- Abortion Free New Mexico is pleased to announce that Michelle Garcia Holmes won her race in the New Mexico primary election. She is the official Republican nominee that will represent New Mexico in the United States Congress for District 1, when she defeats Deb Haaland in the November general election. Our family attended the watch party /victory celebration on election night and after attending several political watch parties over the past ten years, it was nice to finally celebrate a victory for New Mexico!
Michelle Garcia Holmes issued the following statement,
"Thank you! I'm so honored to be the Republican Nominee for Congress in District 1. Over 40,000 Republicans cast their vote in the primary! Our campaign is so blessed and grateful Thank you to all our volunteers who toughed it thru and found new ways to reach the voter, even though we were out-spent 4 to 1! A special thank you to my husband who never stopped until we got to the finish line.
Michelle's #1 issue during the campaign has always been to protect the sanctity of life 100%. As she moves forward to face the radical pro-abortion extremist incumbent Deb Haaland (D) she will keep LIFE at the core of her campaign.
The Battle Continues
November is still a long way off and Michelle Garcia Holmes has a tough battle before her, but with hard work to get out the vote, our prayers and support, and with God on her side, we really believe that she can accomplish ultimate victory on November 3rd!
Until we get new leadership in New Mexico, babies continue to die by abortion and our tax dollars continue to pay for them! So our prayers, protest and our work to make New Mexico abortion free must continue.
Please join us and put your faith into action this Friday at the University of New Mexico's late term abortion facility for just one hour this week from 10AM-11AM.
Jesus to his disciples in his darkest hour, “Couldn’t you keep watch with me for one hour?” Matthew 26:40
While an hour of prayer seems so minimal of a commitment, it meant so much to Jesus in his darkest hour and it means everything to the babies scheduled for death at UNM.

THIS FRIDAY FROM 10-11AM JOIN US AND PUT YOUR FAITH INTO ACTION
"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
Abortion is their dirty little secret that must be exposed
If you can't join us, please keep our efforts in your prayers that hearts will be touched and eyes will be open to the truth about abortion in New Mexico. UNM is at the heart of the abortion cartel in New Mexico, as a publicly funded institution UNM consistently promotes a culture of death and is actively training the next generation of abortionists...

Albuquerque, New Mexico- In a recent report, Abortion Free New Mexico exposed how federal tax dollars are funding late-term abortions in New Mexico, in violation of the Hyde Amendment, through the state's Medicaid program. This struck a nerve, went viral, and even drew a response from US Congressional candidate Michelle Garcia Holmes (R) who stated,
"This will stop when I'm in congress!"
What is even more shocking is that due to the absence of ANY common sense abortion restrictions (like parental notification laws) the New Mexico abortion cartel is able to TARGET minors for abortions, and our tax dollars fully fund this too! In fact, undercover reports conducted by members Abortion Free New Mexico reveal that abortion clinics workers are coaching minors (as young as 14) on how to get New Mexico Medicaid to pay for their abortions- even when their pregnancies are the result of sexual abuse.
In fact, the University of New Mexico is so brazen in their exploitation of minors (or "young women" as they call them), that they run a "Young Women's Clinic" at the same location as their abortion clinic!
Check out their sign which reads, “UNM Center For Reproductive Health [and] UNM Young Women’s Clinic”

In addition, to the University of New Mexico targeting minors at the "Young Women's Clinic," Abortion Free New Mexico has exposed in other undercover investigations that all of the abortion facilities in New Mexico are targeting and exploiting minors for financial gain.
FLASHBACK: Tara Shaver, spokeswoman for Abortion Free New Mexico said it best in one of the reports covered by LifeNews back in 2017,
“Instead of urging the minor to contact the authorities, the abortion clinic staff gives the young girl a phone number to the New Mexico Medicaid office so that she can obtain the $7,500 procedure for free. The reality is that the New Mexico abortion cartel is more concerned about how much money they can make off of selling an abortion, especially lucrative late term abortions, instead of adhering to the laws (mandatory reporting of suspected child abuse) that were passed to protect minors from sexual abuse. We need enforcement of these laws in New Mexico and for our leaders to make sure that this illegal activity is fully investigated."
Here are excerpts from previous undercover investigations exposing how the lack of common sense legislation in New Mexico is allowing the New Mexico Abortion Cartel to TARGET minors for tax funded abortions:
Planned Parenthood: Albuquerque, New Mexico
"In a recently obtained undercover phone call to Planned Parenthood of New Mexico, a 14 year old minor makes an abortion appointment. Not only is the client hiding the abortion from her parents, she is also making sure she can hide the fact that the boyfriend who got her pregnant is a 21 year old man. This constitutes statutory rape and should be reported to authorities, however, the Planned Parenthood employee assures the minor that the Doctor, Shauna Jamison, won’t report it and that this type of thing happens, and is covered up by Planned Parenthood all the time!
Southwestern Women’s Options: Albuquerque, New Mexico
"In a new undercover video by Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life, the caller posing as a minor and victim of incest by an older family member is seeking a late-term abortion at 26 weeks of pregnancy. Instead of urging the minor to contact the authorities, the abortion clinic staff gives the young girl a phone number to the New Mexico Medicaid office so that she can obtain the $7,500 procedure for free. Angelo Artuso, senior legal counsel for Abortion Free New Mexico, said medical professionals are mandatory reporters under New Mexico law.
Hill Top Women’s Reproductive Clinic: Santa Teresa, New Mexico
"In an undercover call placed on May 17, 2017 to Hill Top Women’s Reproductive Clinic in El Paso, TX the caller posing as a 15 year old minor inquires about obtaining an abortion without her parents involvement.
