Pro-Life Groups Urge Prosecution of Illegal New Mexico Aborted Baby Parts Traffickers


By Cheryl Sullenger

Albuquerque, NM – In response to Operation Rescue’s letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan urging him to publicly commit to extending the Select Panel on Infant Lives into the next Congressional session, the New Mexico pro-life group Protest ABQ has announced a bold new campaign.

In conjunction with the prominent national pro-life groups of Operation Rescue and Priests for Life, Protest ABQ plans to use public protest and other educational outreaches to urge State Attorney General Hector Balderas to act on the Select Panel’s June 23, 2016, recommendation that he prosecute the publicly-funded University of New Mexico and their abortion partners, Southwestern Women’s Options. The Select Panel submitted evidence that the two entities were working together to violate state and federal law related to patient privacy and the use and sale of aborted baby remains.

Balderas has had plenty of time to investigate the 291 pages of allegations and documentation provided to him by the Select Panel, and was well aware that there were concerns expressed months earlier about the UNM/Southwestern Women’s Options body parts partnership.

“[The Select Panel’s] criminal referral was issued almost one year after Protest ABQ filed an initial formal complaint with Attorney General Balderas’ office with reference to possible violations of state laws, and concerns about the late-term abortion clinic’s consent forms that indicated the use of fetal tissue obtained during abortions that would later be used in medical research,” said Tara Shaver, Senior Policy Advisor for Protest ABQ.

Yet, according to Shaver, Balderas has so far failed to act despite the clear and convincing evidence. His reluctance to enforce the law where abortion providers are concerned is showing the country what is fundamentally wrong with liberal politics in New Mexico.

“We are glad to stand with Protest ABQ and Priests for Life in demanding prosecutions for UNM and Southwestern Women’s Options crimes,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Southwestern Women’s Options is the largest late-term abortion facility in the country where babies are aborted throughout all nine months of pregnancy. All abortions are bad, but there is just something particularly heinous about killing viable babies just days or weeks before they would have been born. It becomes even more appalling when their organs are then exploited for illegal profit and experimentation.”

Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, who is known as the “Protest Priest” with Priests for Life, criticized politicians like Banderas, who are Catholic Democrats that support child-killing though abortion, despite the clear pro-life teachings of the Church.

“Attorney General Balderas is just one in the group of New Mexico Catholic Democrat elected officials who support pre-born child killing throughout all nine months of pregnancy with no restrictions,” said Fr. Imbarrato, who noted in last week’s election, one of the leaders of the Catholic Democrats was defeated for re-election. “It is now time to focus on Balderas especially as he is most likely planning to run for Governor or another higher office.”

Fr. Imbarrato also questioned the lack of outrage by Republican politicians who claim to be pro-life but have been reluctant to act on their stated beliefs.

“So we contend, as we always have, with Catholic pro-abortion Democrats and silent ‘pro-life in name only’ Republicans. Where is the Republican outrage over Balderas ignoring the crimes against babies that are happening here in New Mexico? These two groups of politicians are what makes New Mexico a deadly place for pre-born children,” Fr. Imbarrato said. “We will continue to expose this failure of leadership and protest their complicity in pre-born child killing until babies are finally protected in our state.”

Shaver remarked, “The abortion cartel in New Mexico has been operating by its own standards for far too long, and now the state’s publicly funded university is involved in an unspeakable scandal of using aborted baby remains from one of the most notorious late-term abortion facilities in the nation. This requires immediate action and without peaceful and prayerful pressure there may never be any progress in this matter of life and death that weighs heavily on the state.”

Five Places Where You Can Get a 9th Month Abortion NOW!

(And Number 5 will freak you out!)


By Cheryl Sullenger

Since this week’s Presidential Debate, which sparked a national conversation on the matter of late-term abortions, we have been inundated with requests for information about late-term abortion facilities and practices.

Below are FIVE places where women can get abortions through the NINTH MONTH of pregnancy, RIGHT NOW!

1. Southwestern Women’s Options, Albuquerque, New Mexico
Abortionists: Shelley Sella, Susan Robinson, Carmen Landau, Curtis Boyd, Emily Rothman
New Mexico is the “Wild West” for late-term abortionists because there are essentially no laws restricting the practice or regulating it. This facility is the largest late-term abortion facility in the U.S. It uses the Induction Abortion technique for most late-term abortions, which is a modified “partial birth abortion” procedure. Documentation exists that provide details of a severely botched 35-week abortion there in 2011, which ruptured the uterus of the patient.

2. Boulder Abortion Clinic, Boulder, Colorado
Owned and operated by Warren Hern

Like New Mexico, Colorado law allows for abortions through all nine months of pregnancy. Hern has written text books on abortion and even invented new abortion instruments over his long career. According to a Federal Court lawsuit filed in Colorado, one patient suffered a horrific THIRD TRIMESTER dismemberment abortion complication in 2013, wherein a four-centimeter slightly curved section of bone from her aborted baby’s skull was left inside her and became imbedded in her uterus. She may never bear another child.

3. Women’s Med Center, Dayton, Ohio
Owned and operated by Martin Haskell

Haskell has been credited with inventing the partial birth abortion procedure, although that claim is in dispute. Haskell’s abortion facility has had a number of documented botched abortions. Most recently, information surfaced that his facility conducted a forced late-term abortion on a woman who was incapable of consenting. He has had issues maintaining his abortion facility license since he cannot qualify for a hospital transfer agreement as required by law. He currently operates under a variance that allows him an exemption from the transfer agreement requirement.

4. Pro-Choice Medical Center, Beverly Hills, California
Owned and operated by Josepha Seletz

Seletz uses the Induction Abortion method for very late-term abortions, which she will gladly do in the event of a “fetal anomaly.” She boasts of being “the most experienced abortion provider in the Western United States.”

5. Germantown Reproductive Health Services, Germantown, Maryland
Abortionist: LeRoy Carhart
While late-term abortions are inherently more risky than the first trimester variety, LeRoy Carhart is among the worst late-term abortionists in the nation. He is responsible for the deaths of two late-term abortion patients: Jennifer Morbelli, 29, who died of complications to a 33-week abortion on February 7, 2013, and Christin Gilbert, 19, who died from a third trimester Carhart abortion in Kansas in 2005. Numerous life-threatening botched abortions have characterized the past few years of his career. Carhart has been subpoenaed by the House Select Panel on Infant Lives, which suspects Carhart has illegally trafficked in aborted baby body parts and had babies born alive at his abortion facility.

StemExpress Faces Contempt Charges in Move to Halt Stonewalling of Subpoenaed Records


By Cheryl Sullenger

Washington, DC – In a big move announced yesterday, the U.S. House Select Panel on Infant Lives will vote Wednesday on contempt charges against StemExpress and its owner, Cate Dyer.

Dyer and her organ procurement company have repeatedly stonewalled subpoenas issued by the Select Panel for financial information that would prove not only that Planned Parenthood profited from the sale of fresh aborted baby body parts to Stem Express, but also how much it profited.

The sale of aborted baby remains for profit is a violation of Federal Law.

The Select Panel was created to investigate evidence that surfaced last year through a series of undercover videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress. The videos showed Planned Parenthood executives and abortionists bargaining for the sale of aborted baby remains for profit to a number of organ procurement companies and research laboratories

“This is the piece of the puzzle we hoped the Select Panel would uncover,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who served as a founding board member for the Center for Medical Progress. “As with many white collar crimes, the financial data is the key piece of evidence. The fact that Dyer is risking contempt charges to keep this information out of the Select Panel’s hands indicates it must be strongly incriminating to her, her company, and her business partners at Planned Parenthood.”

Newman is named in two Federal lawsuits filed by Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation, which are seeking to block the release of additional videos and evidence and financially ruin those involved in the undercover journalistic study that revealed their obvious ghoulish behavior toward aborted baby remains and their alleged criminal conduct.

The Select Panel also announced that in a separate matter, it will vote to release a May 11, 2016, deposition taken as part of the Panel’s investigation in to the University of New Mexico (UNM).

On June 23, 2016, the Select Panel sent a letter to Attorney General Hector H. Balderas, Jr. recommending criminal charges and further investigation into UNM and the largest late-term abortion facility in the country, Southwestern Women’s Options, both located in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

During their investigation, the Select Panel uncovered evidence that UNM obtained aborted baby remains from Southwestern Women’s Options, which were then used for experimentation by UNM or sold to others for experimentation in violation of state and federal law.

In return, Southwestern Women’s Options abortionists received numerous employee benefits at UNM that provided professional and financial gain.

Nearly three months later, Attorney General Balderas has yet to charge UNM and Southwestern Women’s Options.

In August, Dr. Paul Roth, chancellor of the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center and dean of the School of Medicine, who oversaw the aborted baby tissue harvesting scheme, admitted on video that staff from the University of New Mexico used brains of aborted babies for dissection by high school students at a summer camp.

This admission essentially justified the Select Panel’s decision to seek criminal charges against UNM and SWO.

The Select Panel will meet Wednesday, September 21, 2016, at 2:00 p.m. ET in HVC-210 at the United States Capitol. A live stream of the meeting and links to the documents will be available at this link.

Operation Rescue will also post the documents when they are available.
