Project Defending Life Launches New Campaign, PROTEST ABQ

By Tara Shaver, Project Defending Life

Albuquerque, NM- Project Defending Life is announcing a new public awareness campaign: PROTEST ABQ, which will utilize “abortion victim photography” and other public awareness efforts, in response to the failed ban on Late-Term Abortions on November 19th. Through strategic and sustained focuses, PROTEST ABQ, is going to reach deeper into our community to educate Albuquerque and New Mexico residents about the businesses and individuals that are keeping abortions in our community.

Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, founder of Project Defending Life issued the following statement, “It is time to get serious about protesting the killing of our little brothers and sisters in the womb. These protests will be peaceful and constitutionally legal. We will not condone violence of any kind by anyone in this campaign. Indeed, we are protesting the use of violence…against babies in the womb. We will peacefully protest this violence.”

As part of this initiative, PROTEST ABQ, Project Defending Life is inviting all known and recognized pro-life leaders, groups, and ministries to New Mexico to help us. We will host and provide hospitality to any group or ministry including lodging and food for the duration of your stay here. We are welcoming National Pro-Life groups to come to Albuquerque, NM and do the work they do best. The National groups will work under their own ministry or group banner in cooperation with PROTEST ABQ and Project Defending Life.

In the state of New Mexico late term abortions are legal up to the ninth month of pregnancy. These abortions are, in fact, being performed in the city of Albuquerque each week on women who come from all across the nation to obtain them. Since Albuquerque is drawing women from all across the country, Project Defending Life is inviting pro-life groups from all across the nation to come to Albuquerque and join us as we PROTEST ABQ.

While our efforts on Nov. 19th fell short of ending Late-Term abortions in Albuquerque, by maintaining a public and prayerful presence at our local abortion clinics, we have been quite successful at ending abortion one woman, one child, one day at a time. The preliminary abortion numbers for 2012 are 3,134, which is a 627 decrease from 2011 (3761 total) and a 2,590 decrease in abortions in New Mexico since 2007 (5,724 total!)

“As we move forward in Albuquerque, we realize that abortion will end in our city and state, when hearts are touched and minds are changed concerning the killing of the most innocent and defenseless children in our state, those in the womb. PROTEST ABQ is a way to raise this public awareness. If we accomplish nothing else, we must succeed in protesting the evil of our generation…legalized child killing,” stated Bud Shaver spokesperson for PROTEST ABQ.

  • Our pro- life Apostolate “HELP” here in NE Ohio has begun an effort to make public those individuals, hospitals and charitable entities involved in killing our innocent children. We are most grateful for the assistance of Operation Rescue as they exposed one of the most notorious local providers of abortion David Burkons as he attempted to reopen an abortion mill in another city that was closed late last year. The purveyors of death and all associated even peripherally with their effort need to be exposed to the light of day in cities across the nation.

    I admire all of you for your courage. You are in my prayers. All of you are doing a tremendous job working to rid our country of this great evil of abortion.

  • Bill Hoffman

    Pray for the end of abortion in these United States, for pregnant women who are considering abortion, that they will fall in love with the precious child that they carry and for those who work in the abortion industry that their hearts may be converted.

    The more people who cry out to the Lord for an end to this holocaust the sooner He will answer.
    The efforts being made to bring perpetrators out in the open so that individuals may take action are very commendable. I am thinking of “Protest ABQ” and ‘Help” mentioned above. We need more efforts like these in other areas of our country.

    Please pray for the following abortion providers by name seeking their conversion and that they stop killing our precious children.

    To Bill Hoffman comment: Rapin Osanondoth in Massachusetts was criminally charged and went to jail and lost his medical license. He is no longer a legal abortionist but yes, still needs your prayers.

    Education over politics any day in my opinion wins.
