Albuquerque, New Mexico- Abortion Free New Mexico's latest investigation has uncovered that Oncore Health Solutions (a conglomerate of Oncore Technology LLC and BioCycle Inc.) is transporting babies that are aborted in New Mexico across state lines to be disposed of as biohazard waste in the state of Texas. These disposal facilities are located in Amarillo and Grand Prairie, TX.
Due to the recent SCOTUS decision, Texas law now bans babies from being aborted. However, no law currently exists preventing aborted babies from the neighboring state of New Mexico from being transported to Texas and disposed of as, "biohazard waste".
The fact that babies can't be killed in Texas but aborted babies from New Mexico can be disposed of as biohazard waste in Texas by companies like Oncore/BioCycle must be remedied by the Texas legislature," stated Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico.
This alarming discovery has come after months of documentation and several complaints with the New Mexico Environment Department.
In November 2020, local sidewalk advocates began sending Abortion Free New Mexico pictures of an unmarked waste hauler vehicle that routinely picked up the biohazard waste containers full of aborted babies that were killed at the Planned Parenthood surgical center in Albuquerque. Planned Parenthood performs abortions up to 19.6 weeks of pregnancy.
Abortion Free New Mexico filed a complaint with the New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) based on the statute, NMAC 18.104.22.168 (A) (7) and (8) which, requires commercial haulers of infectious waste to:
According to Thomas Simmons, the Operations Manager for Oncore Technology, they purchased BioCycle and no longer operated under the name "Oncore Technology" but are also known as Oncore Healthcare Solutions, LLC. However, they failed to re-register with the state of New Mexico and had been operating with multiple violations.
The NMED noted the following manifest violations with both the waste generator (Planned Parenthood) and the waste Hauler (Oncore Technology LLC.) These manifests accompany each pickup and transport of biohazard waste and document how much waste is being transported. On average there were two to three 28 gallon containers that were collected weekly from the Albuquerque Planned Parenthood surgical center between January-April 2021.
Of the 17 manifests Planned Parenthood submitted to NMED, all of the
generator blocks of the special waste manifests were insufficiently completed."
Oncore Technology LLC's specific manifest violations are as follows:
Just a Slap on the Wrist
In a letter dated May 19, 2021 from NMED Enforcement Officer Daniel Galasso to Amy Dickson, Chief Operating Officer of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, he simply instructs Planned Parenthood to begin filling out the special waste manifests properly to document chain of custody.
Regarding Oncore Technology LLC, BioCycle and Oncore Health Technologies violations, they were instructed to correct the violations within 10 days.
This amounts to nothing more than a slap on the wrist from the NMED even though there are legitimate documented violations of New Mexico statute that have occurred.
2nd Complaint Filed- Aborted Babies illegally transported in the Front Seat
On April 7, 2022, Abortion Free New Mexico's Tara Shaver filed an additional complaint with the New Mexico Environment Department after volunteers outside of the Albuquerque Planned Parenthood took pictures and video of Oncore/BioCycle waste haulers illegally placing biohazard containers in the front seat of a pickup truck. These red bins contained the human remains of aborted children. The vehicle still lacked proper identification in accordance with New Mexico statute.
Dan Galasso, Enforcement Coordinator and Environmental Scientist informed Tara Shaver that the company has been instructed to correct these items of non-compliance but at this time, there has been no disciplinary action taken.
Abortion Free New Mexico has sent letters to Oncore/BioCycle's President, Otley Smith, CEO Vernon Wells and Vice President, R. Mason Bryant to urge them to sever ties with Planned Parenthood of New Mexico.
The Project Weak Link initiative that Abortion Free New Mexico has teamed up with Created Equal to implement in New Mexico believes that,
If abortionists are going to kill babies, they should be forced to dispose of the bodies by themselves. The abortion industry does not exist by itself. It is deeply ingrained in cultural institutions, norms, and economies. To end abortion, we must decrease the industry’s relevance by socially and financially isolating it from other industries."
It's time to implement the next phase of this initiative because the New Mexico Environment Department has failed to properly discipline Oncore/BioCycle for their violations. Abortion Free New Mexico may be calling on the public in the coming weeks to let their voices be heard by Oncore/BioCycle leaders as well as leaders in the Texas Legislature.
Tara Shaver continued,
Not only is Abortion Free New Mexico sounding the alarm about the transportation and disposal of aborted babies across state lines, we are also calling for the U.S. Congress to address the constitutional crisis that is looming for pre-born babies. How is the right to life lost by crossing a state line? This crisis is very reminiscent of the earliest days in this nation when free states and slave states existed. Surely we are not going back into that dark place where your place of residence determines your value. Pre-born babies all across America need and deserve constitutional personhood from the moment of conception."

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!
