“If the situation was hopeless, their propaganda would be unnecessary” ― John O'Connell
Albuquerque, New Mexico- During the 2024 Super Bowl LVIII an ad that many are calling "blasphemous" was aired, and it has rightfully sparked outrage among conservative Christians.
Here are some examples of the most prominent voices of opposition:
The ad ends with the words in all caps, "JESUS DIDN'T TEACH HATE, HE WASHED FEET."
Interestingly, according to The Sporting News, "Among the donors behind the [He Get's Us] campaign is the family of billionaire Hobby Lobby co-founder David Green, whose son is a board member at Come Near."
The apparent Christian backed propaganda messaging implies, in the scene above, that the Pro-Life community shouldn't protest abortion or peacefully confront abortion minded women at abortion facilities. To do so is not loving it is, "HATE". They should instead follow Jesus' example and "wash their feet."
MYTH/PROPAGANDA VS. REALITY
Publicly being present at abortion facilities does convict abortion minded women, some of whom are already on the fence about their abortion decision. Some women even arrive looking for a "sign" or a way out and thank us for being there. Those who courageously and sacrificially go to abortion facilities to share the gospel and minister to women are the last line of defense on the frontlines of the battle for life in this country.
Abbey Johnson, a former manager at Planned Parenthood, revealed that upper management complained, “Our no-show rate goes up to 75% when people are outside our clinics praying.”
It has also been documented in the articles below that the use of both fetal development and abortion victim images of abortion violence, do change individuals minds and saves babies lives.
WHAT DOES THE NEW TESTAMENT ACTUALLY SAY?
Biblical (New Testament) examples of feet washing include Jesus/Christians washing fellow Christians feet expressing their humility, service and love to one another; and repentant sinners to Jesus as an act expressing their true sorrow for their sins:
Abortion Free New Mexico is not motivated by hate, on the contrary, our love for abortion minded women and their babies compels us to act on behalf of our Christian faith and reach them on the sidewalks outside of abortion facilities before they make the tragic choice to take the life of their precious baby.
Please pray for our selfless volunteers and consider joining us on the sidewalk. Training is provided.

Albuquerque, New Mexico- On January 27th, Abortion Free New Mexico volunteers along with our local Love Life Mentor witnessed a mother choose life at the Alamo Women’s abortion center. She was loved on and served, on her way to the airport and has been connected with resources in her hometown. Praise God for this partnership on the sidewalk and for this mom whose heart was open to life. Please pray for her!
Read Karen’s Testimony:
The Lord gave me the privilege to meet a Mom from Houston- my hometown 🙂 this morning after she walked out of the Alamo Womens Clinic and chose life. She was with her cousin and they were going to walk to McDonalds to wait for an Uber ride back to the airport. A fellow Abortion Free NM volunteer on the sidewalk immediately gave me a blessing box full of goodies and a TX resource guide for this Mom!
“Praise God for this collaborative effort on the sidewalk. Lives are spared when we walk in unity together. May more hearts and minds be open to life and to the Lord this year as our volunteers go out daily to the darkest places in our communities, abortion facilities,” stated Tara Shaver, spokeswoman for Abortion Free New Mexico.

Albuquerque, New Mexico- Abortion Free New Mexico is excited to share that the mother, from Cuba seeking asylum in our country, who chose life for her baby and returned to Texas has delivered a beautiful and healthy baby girl! This is the first baby born in 2024 who was spared from abortion when local sidewalk counselors were present to offer hope and help to this immigrant couple from the Republic of Cuba.
For months, Abortion Free New Mexico has partnered with several ministries in Texas to provide groceries, baby items, rent, furniture, dishes and gift cards to this family. It truly has been a collective effort and a powerful example of Christ’s love to this very special mom. Abortion Free New Mexico plans to continue to support this family, through the Life Fund, until they reach financial stability. Thank you to everyone who has given so sacrificially to meet the needs of courageous moms that choose life.
