Albuquerque, NM- Late-Term Abortion Capital: New Mexico Is The Wild, Wild, West As Far As Abortion Is Concerned…No Regulations & Anything Goes!
Images of Injustice: Harder Truth
Late-term abortions are overwhelmingly opposed by the vast majority of Americans. According to one Gallup Poll, 68% oppose second trimester abortions and a stunning 84% oppose third trimester abortions. That disapproval is reflected in the law. In most states, abortions after viability are either illegal or highly regulated. Thirty six states have some kind of ban on “late-term” abortions, although the definition of “late-term” varies. Fourteen states prohibit abortions after 24 weeks. Ten states require a second physician’s approval. However, in New Mexico there are virtually no laws pertaining to viability (NM does have a partial-birth abortion ban that is consistent with the federal ban. However, it just bans partially delivering the baby outside of the womb and then killing the baby. The ban just made it illegal to kill a viable baby outside of the womb. So, abortionists came up with another procedure [The MOLD procedure. It is explained below.] that kills the viable baby in the womb and then they deliver the dead baby.) It is legal in New Mexico to have an abortion up to the day of birth.
While there are a handful of abortionists in the country willing to do abortions well into the third trimester, Curtis Boyd has a referral network system that is getting the word out better and drawing women to his late-term mill (Southwestern Women’s Options) from all across the globe! Also, another factor that enticed Boyd to set up shop in New Mexico specifically to market Late-Term abortions according to Troy Newman- President of Operation Rescue, New Mexico is still very much the wild west as far as abortion laws are concerned. Right now, anything goes! Due to the lack of abortion regulations, Curtis Boyd decided to market late-term abortions here in Albuquerque, NM and is drawing women from all across North America. We have seen cars from Arkansas, Arizona, Texas, Colorado, Utah, California, Washington, Kansas, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, North Carolina, North Dakota, Missouri, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Virginia, Wisconsin, New York, and Mexico. In addition, Bud Shaver with Project Defending Life has spoken to women who came from Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, and a woman contacted us via e-mail…she was making plans to come here from the United Kingdom until she came across this website! Albuquerque, New Mexico is now known as the Late-Term Abortion Capital of the World!

Great article on this by LifeNews.com Late-Term Abortion Practitioner: “Yes I am Killing” Babies
The Late-Term Abortion procedure is called: Induction Abortion- Also known as the “MOLD Technique”
MOLD is an acronym for the four products employed in the abortion process: Misoprostol, Oxytocin, Laminaria, and Digoxin.
The Induction abortion takes 3-4 days to complete. On the first day the woman is given an ultrasound to determine the gestational age of her baby. Then, with the aid of the ultrasound to guide the abortionist, a lethal dose of the heart medication Digoxin is injected into the baby’s heart one of two ways: either directly through the mother’s abdomen or via the mother, vaginally. Digoxin gives the baby a fatal heart attack. This is an off-label application of the drug, which was developed and approved as a treatment for heart disease
After the Digoxin injection, the woman’s cervix is packed with laminaria, thin tampon-like sticks made of seaweed that expand the cervix gradually over the next day.
The next day, the woman is repacked with larger laminaria sticks and given Misoprostol to prepare the woman for labor.
On the final day of the abortion, the woman is given the drug Oxytocin, which induces contractions and the onset of labor. Women then are placed in a room where they endure the labor process. When it is determined that the labor has progressed to the stage where the baby is about to be delivered…Each woman is taken into a room with a toilet and told to lean on the nurse and push the baby into the toilet.
Once the dead baby is delivered, the woman is given a procedure called Dilatation and Curettage, or D&C. Here, a sharp edged spoon-shaped instrument is used to remove the remaining tissue, such as the afterbirth, from the uterus.
Complications from lethal fetal injections are well known. In Orlando, Florida, the misuse of Digoxin resulted in the live birth of Baby Rowan, who died after abortion clinic workers denied him medical care. In Wichita, Kansas, baby Sarah was injected in the head with a toxic drug that was a precursor to Digoxin. She survived and was later adopted, but suffered a malady of medical problems. She died five years later from complications to the injuries she received as a result of the injection.
In addition, it is well documented that babies in the later stages of pregnancy can feel pain and at least one study indicates that babies as young as 6-8 weeks gestation may experience pain.
The Silent Scream / Full Version
Three Late-term Abortionists Under Investigation For Series of Botched Abortions (August 9, 2011)
There have been eleven abortion-related medical emergencies at Southwestern Women’s Options in less than two years.
Albuquerque, NM — Project Defending Life and Operation Rescue have been notified by the New Mexico Board of Physicians that three Albuquerque abortionists who specialize in late-term abortions are under investigation for a spate of abortion injuries that took place over a 15-month time span.
Project Defending Life and Operation Rescue filed the complaint after Project Defending Life obtained audio files of eleven 911 calls from the clinic where the three abortionists work indicating that women are suffering life-threatening abortion complications ranging from heavy hemorrhaging to a ruptured uterus. The recordings were provided in response to an open records request.
Under investigation are Shelley Sella and Susan Robinson, late-term abortionists who formerly worked for the nation’s largest late-term abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas, prior to its closure in 2009. Also under investigation is Texas abortionist Curtis Boyd, who owns Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque, where the 911 calls originated.
“When this late-term clinic opened, we predicted that women would be injured, and now that prediction has unfortunately come true,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “It is shocking that eleven women in less than 15 months nearly died from life-threatening complications to abortions, some of them in the later stages of pregnancy. These 911 calls prove that this clinic is a dangerous abortion mill that should be closed in the interest of public safety.”
In addition, members of Project Defending Life met with Gov. Susana Martinez to discuss the dangerous conditions that have spawned so many life-threatening abortion complications.
“Our concern is for the safety of women in New Mexico. We were encouraged to hear that Governor Martinez shares these same concerns. In fact, we were thoroughly impressed that the Governor’s office not only knew about the 911 calls, but had already contacted the Executive Director of the Medical Board to insure the investigation was progressing. We now have confidence that the New Mexico Medical Board is conducting a proper investigation,” said Fr. Stephen Imbarrato of Project Defending Life after the meeting.
Injury-Prone New Mexico Abortion Clinics Operate In Shadows of Regulatory Gaps
A shocking number of medical emergencies at two Albuquerque abortion clinics over the past few months have raised questions about clinic safety and who is responsible for oversight. After months of investigation, pro-life groups have determined that Albuquerque abortion clinics often operate in regulatory gaps and actively seek to “fly under the radar,” as one regulator put it.
This has created a public safety crisis in New Mexico.
“This clinic operates in the shadowy gap created by an extremely compartmentalized regulatory system in New Mexico,” said Tara Shaver of Project Defending Life. “Each regulatory agency is only responsible for a small portion of oversight, and abortion procedures seem to give clinics special exemption from oversight. Abortion clinics can easily fly under the radar by claiming to be doctor’s offices. This designation ensures that they are never inspected or regulated. Maybe that is why we are seeing life-threatening medical emergencies at these clinics at the rate of one every couple of months.”
New Docs Reveal Horrific Details of Botched 35-Week Abortion
The documents were released recently by the New Mexico Medical Board in response to an open records request made by Tara Shaver of Project Defending Life. Both Mrs. Shaver and Operation Rescue had filed the original complaints with the NMMB after receiving a 911 recording of a medical emergency that took place at Southwestern Women’s Options, a late-term abortion clinic in Albuquerque, on May 12, 2011. Read the shocking details here!

In the 1960s, Curtis Boyd provided thousands of illegal abortions to women in Texas.
LISTEN TO CURTIS BOYD ADMIT TO BEING AN ILLEGAL “BACK ALLEY” ABORTIONIST:
“Part and parcel of the pro-abortion rhetoric is that women need open access to abortion to protect them from having to resort to seeking out “back alley” abortionists. Vulnerable women not realizing Curtis Boyd’s sordid past and current trouble are being thrust unsuspectingly into his hands. Boyd also admits to having conducted “pain management” experiments on his patients as well as having used them to experiment new abortion methods. As previously mentioned, over the past two years alone, there have been eleven documented life-threatening injuries at Curtis Boyd’s late-term abortion mill, demanding these women be rushed to the UNMH emergency room.
We encourage women to seek alternatives and free help from Project Defending Life and never step foot into Boyd’s “House of Pain.” Tara Shaver, spokesperson for Project Defending Life.
