Three Late-term Abortionists Under Investigation For Series of Botched Abortions

Albuquerque, NM — Operation Rescue has 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.

Operation Rescue filed the complaint after receiving audio files of four 911 calls from the clinic where the three abortionists work indicating that women were 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 four 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.”
