Albuquerque, New Mexico- Last Friday, at The University of New Mexico's free-standing abortion clinic UNMCRH, where Abortion Free New Mexico holds a weekly prayer and protest presence, a young woman chose life for her baby!
The young mom spoke to Tara Shaver, of Abortion Free New Mexico, and confided to her that after her last abortion she vowed to God that she would never have another abortion, but she's pregnant again and struggling with addiction. Sometimes women are looking for sign from God and it just so happens that we were the sign she needed to choose life!
So after talking to Tara and receiving resources along with hope for the future, she turned around and left, still pregnant with her baby!
Unfortunately, for the babies in their mothers wombs, while Churches and small businesses are deemed "non-essential" and shut down, our governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham has deemed abortion clinics "essential". So our prayer and protest presence at the abortion facility is equally essential!
Tara Shaver, spokeswoman for Abortion Free New Mexico, issued the following statement to local media,
“If Governor Lujan Grisham is going to insist that abortion services are essential in New Mexico, our prayer and protest presence outside of these facilities is equally essential. Every life has value, and if she refuses to protect the lives of the smallest New Mexicans, those in their mothers’ wombs, then we have an obligation and the right afforded by the U.S. Constitution to do so. Our right to the freedom of speech and to peaceably assemble shall not be infringed upon.”
While some may debate what sign is the most effective to hold out at an abortion facility, our prayerful protest presence was enough to save a life. Simply being present can be the best SIGN!
