Albuquerque, New Mexico- This years National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children, held at the only location in New Mexico where aborted babies are buried featured excellent speakers, was well attended by over 50 people and concluded with the announcement of several local Albuquerque candidates (featured below) who signed Abortion Free New Mexico's Pro-Life Pledge. Abortion Free New Mexico has worked with Fr. Stephen Imbarrato of Life Ministries U.S., to make this site a place of healing for post abortive women and those who have suffered miscarriages. Several memorial headstones have been placed in honor of these babies at the Sandia Memory Gardens. Contact Abortion Free New Mexico if you or someone you know would like to have their babies name placed on a memorial headstone.
Photos (below) from the event were featured in a front page, Sunday edition, article by the Santa Fe New Mexican, who had previously interviewed Tara about the recent Texas abortion ban and its impact on New Mexico.
Excerpt from the article,
New Mexico does not have some of the abortion restrictions — such as mandated parental approval for minors or a waiting period — that many other states have.

A crowd of some 50 abortion opponents turned out to pray at the cemetery in one of over 180 similar services being conducted across the country." (Jim Weber/The New Mexican)

Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico issued the following statement,
"It is encouraging to have so many committed pro-life candidates running for office in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County, which is where we have the highest concentration of abortions in the state. Albuquerque, New Mexico is unfortunately known as the late-term abortion capital of the nation and Abortion Free New Mexico is working to change this horrific reputation by encouraging candidates to stand for life. We must all work to build a culture of life where women, our senior citizens and the medically vulnerable are given life affirming healthcare options."
