ALBUQUERQUE — Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life have released a new video taken from an undercover phone call placed to Southwestern Women’s Options late-term abortion facility that clearly explains how some second and third trimester abortions are performed in New Mexico.

A healthy woman posing as 25 weeks pregnant is given an overview by an abortion worker detailing how the 3-4 day labor and delivery procedure will take place. Late-term abortion is a grueling process that begins every Tuesday with the killing of a baby by a lethal injection of the medication digoxin and culminates at the end of the week when labor is induced and the mother delivers a stillborn child. Pre-born babies can survive outside the womb at 25 weeks, and sometimes earlier in pregnancy.

In a recent rare interview, Curtis Boyd, owner of Southwestern Women’s Options claims that he provides abortions to women “who are dying if they do not get the abortion, women who have severe congenital defects.” However, if a woman was truly dying she would never subject herself to a 3-4 day abortion procedure. She would go to a hospital where if it were absolutely necessary to end the pregnancy, the pre-born child would be removed from her womb (alive) via a Caesarean section.

In fact, a previous undercover recording Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life released demonstrated that Southwestern Women’s Options screens their patients for health indicators to ensure that the mother is healthy enough for a late-term procedure. It would be medical negligence to perform a lengthy abortion procedure on a woman whose life is truly at risk.

Curtis Boyd and his staff at Southwestern Women’s Options are actually the ones placing the lives of women at risk by performing dangerous late-term abortions. In fact, a Southwestern Women’s Options consent form obtained by Abortion Free New Mexico’s Tara Shaver in 2012 states that abortions done after 18 weeks are more dangerous than carrying the baby to full term.

Another video released by Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life exposed that Southwestern Women’s Options isn’t in the habit of performing late-term abortions to save the lives of women as Boyd claims, but is instead operating under an archaic eugenic mindset that empowers their abortionists to willingly abort pre-born babies who are found to have “congenital defects.” Killing babies who are handicapped is at the heart of Boyd’s late-term abortion business.

“Southwestern Women’s Options uses an injection to stop the hearts of pre-born babies and a concoction of several medications to artificially induce labor in women and then sends them away to wait for their child to be born dead. This precarious cocktail of medications is and has resulted in serious life-threatening complications. In May 2011 a patient at Southwestern Women’s Options was rushed to the emergency room after her uterus ruptured during the very same procedure documented in this call. She was 35 weeks pregnant,” Ms. Shaver said. “Late-term abortions are not, as some say, ‘only done to save the lives of women,’ they are performed to make Curtis Boyd huge profits at the expense of precious human lives.

In this call a fee of $8,500 fee is quoted for an abortion at 25 weeks. A Manta.com search of Curtis Boyd in Albuquerque shows that his abortion business has an “annual revenue of $1 to $2.5 million.”

“Americans continue, in large majorities, to reject late-term abortion,” said Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. “We will continue to expose it by undercover phone calls, so that the existence of these procedures, and their utter barbarity, will be indisputable in the minds and hearts of more and more of our fellow citizens, and that they will take action to end abortion.”

Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.

Priests for Life, Abortion Free New Mexico Release Second Undercover Call of Appointment for Third Trimester Abortion

NEW YORK – Priests for Life and Abortion Free New Mexico have released a new undercover phone call as part of an effort to educate Americans about the reality of third-trimester abortion.

In a call to Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque, commissioned by Priests for Life, New Mexico pro-life activist Tara Shaver said she was a health mother carrying a healthy baby at 30 weeks into her pregnancy. She explained that this was originally a wanted child, but that once her husband lost his job, they felt they could no longer take care of the new baby and the two other children they have.

The clinic scheduled the abortion — a procedure of several days — to begin on Tuesday, May 9th. The abortion seller said Medicaid would cover the abortion.

“Even people who call themselves ‘pro-choice’ are outraged that children can be aborted this late – and even later – in a pregnancy,” said Father Frank Pavone. “It is time for us to make sure that there isn’t a citizen in America who is unaware of this child-killing that is taking place throughout pregnancy.”

Tara and Bud Shaver, the founders of Abortion Free New Mexico, point out that New Mexico is one of the poorest states in the country and is consistently ranked lowest in education and child well being while also having one of the highest crime rates in the nation. The state is currently facing a budget crisis and is struggling to keep the government running.

According to a recent article by the Associated Press: “Cash reserves are dwindling, which will soon leave state finance officials unable to cut checks. The governor warned that will affect the state’s ability to make payroll and pay contracts.”

“However, if you need a late-term abortion, New Mexico is the go-to place,” Bud Shaver said. “New Mexico may not be able to pay its state workers, but New Mexico Medicaid will pay over $15,000 to local abortionists to kill a child in the womb.”

Tara Shaver said: “The myth that late-term abortions only occur when a woman’s life is at risk or when the baby has been diagnosed with an anomaly could not be farther from the truth. Our latest call dispels this myth with proof that in New Mexico late-term abortions are easy to come by.

“New Mexicans deserve to hear the truth about the evil that is occurring in our state and our leaders must work to change the fact that New Mexico is the late-term abortion capital of the country.”

In a previous undercover call, Ms. Shaver told Southwestern Women’s Options that she was 33 weeks pregnant with a Down syndrome baby. The woman who answered the phone assured her that she would be able to abort her child and have Medicaid pick up the tab.

Father Pavone noted that the majority of Americans do not support late-term abortion and do not want taxpayer money funding used to kill fully developed, well past viability children.

“Every abortion is an outrage, and we need to protect every baby. To educate our fellow citizens, let’s start with the most obvious and outrageous part of the story: Taxpayer-funded third-trimester abortions of healthy babies carried by healthy mothers.”
