Albuquerque, New Mexico- Abortion Free New Mexico has learned that abortionist Carmen Landau, the primary late-term abortionist at Southwestern Women's Options, was found dead "suddenly and unexpectedly" in her hotel room in Puerto Rico on October 14, 2022. Landau was attending the National Harm Reduction Conference, which promotes drug use by providing syringes and naloxone to users. She served as the medical director of the event.
Tara Shaver, Spokeswoman for Abortion Free New Mexico, issued the following statement,
For several years Abortion Free New Mexico has prayed for abortionist Carmen Landau, that she would walk away from the abortion industry and ultimately see the humanity of both women and their unborn children. It is our hope that before her passing she turned to the Lord Jesus Christ. Our prayers continue for her family that they will find comfort and healing during this difficult time."
Abortion Free New Mexico has also discovered that prior to her sudden death, Landau was working with local abortionists to open a new abortion clinic in Albuquerque called, Valley Abortion Group.
With a focus on "comprehensive abortion care often later in pregnancy" the stated aim of the Valley Abortion Group abortionists, is to accommodate the:
many new providers [that] have come from out-of-state and are focused on caring for patients from out-of-state, while Valley Abortion Group maintains our commitment to patients from New Mexico by accepting local payers, such as Medicaid, and working with local organizations to increase access for patients from rural and tribal areas."
According to the New Mexico Secretary of State's website the Valley Abortion Group LLC was formed on August 17, 2022.
Landau's cohorts are using her unexpected death to keep this effort going and are actively raising funds through a crowdfunding site. Their goal is $100,000. It is uncertain if their plans to open a new late-term abortion clinic in Albuquerque will succeed.

Albuquerque, New Mexico- On Saturday November 19, 2022 Abortion Free New Mexico hosted a Pro-Life Apologetics training seminar featuring special guest speakers Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico and Felicia Stone.
Felicia shared her testimony of choosing life for her baby despite being a victim of rape. She also shared how in a separate pregnancy she chose life despite receiving pressure to abort her child for a fetal indication after receiving a diagnosis of her baby having Trisomy 18. She chose instead to go undercover for Abortion Free New Mexico to expose the late-term abortion industry in New Mexico!
Also featured, were two local Pro-Life Ministries: We need to be equipped with as many resources as possible to let women know how much our community is willing to help them throughout their pregnancy...and beyond!

Albuquerque, New Mexico- On Wednesday, November 9, 2022, a prayer volunteer with Abortion Free New Mexico witnessed a woman being transported by ambulance from the UNM Center for Reproductive Health (UNMCRH) abortion facility right before the lunch hour. This medical emergency occurred the day after New Mexicans largely elected 100% pro-abortion candidates in the general election across the state. It is unknown what the status of the woman's injuries are but it is known that UNM abortion center performs late-term abortions up to 24 weeks (6 months) of pregnancy.
Abortion is not normal, is not safe, is not essential health care. Providing this barbaric act should be criminalized," stated Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico.
Abortion Free New Mexico has documented numerous abortion injuries over the years at the UNM abortion facility in an attempt to bring awareness to the dangers of the unregulated abortion industry in New Mexico. Since abortions are blind procedures and a woman's uterus is thinned out to make room for a baby, abortion instruments can perforate the uterus or even the cervix. Sometimes during second trimester abortions when the abortionist is reaching in and pulling out the baby in pieces, a woman's bodily organs can also be extracted which requires emergency surgery.
The condition of the woman injured at UNMCRH on November 9, 2022 remains unknown at this time.
Abortion Free New Mexico will file a medical board complaint based on this incident and an investigation will be requested to see if negligence was the cause of this emergency transport. Abortion Free New Mexico will also seek to obtain the 911 call that summoned the ambulance to the facility. Unfortunately, the city of Albuquerque has a long history of denying these public records and we are considering legal action in the near future.
Tara Shaver continued,
It is unfortunate that New Mexicans continue to elect candidates who turn a blind eye to the fact that abortion harms women and kills innocent children in the womb. Every life should be cherished and women deserve to know about the alternatives to abortion that won't land them in the hospital with potential life threatening injuries. We pray for the people of this state, that they will one day reject the narrative that abortion is healthcare because it clearly is not. Abortion needs to be called out for what it is, the brutal dismemberment of children, and should be rejected by all."
