On Sunday April 19th Senator Jerry Ortiz y Pino (D) Hosted a Town Hall Meeting in Albuquerque at the Hotel Blue and invited other politicians and the public. Sen. Pino issued the following statement regarding his town hall invitation, “I think legislators must take every opportunity to communicate with their constituents about their work in the Legislature. What better way to inform and gain feedback than to go out into our communities and speak face-to-face with those who put us in office.”
...so Protest ABQ was there!
The Daily Caller reported on a recent question issued by Sen. Rand Paul, "A Republican presidential candidate did something new and refreshing when challenged on his abortion views by the press: he threw it back in the face of the Democrats. “Why don’t we ask the DNC: Is it okay to kill a 7 pound baby in the uterus?” Paul reportedly said.
Protest ABQ thought that was a reasonable question to ask Democrat Senator Jerry Ortiz y Pino and the other Democrat politicians attending the local town hall meeting.
This past legislative session New Mexico Senate Democrats killed all of the Pro-Life Bills introduced. In a bipartisan effort the NM House passed a Late-Term Abortion Ban and sent it to the Senate. Sen. Jerry Ortiz y Pino was the chair of the Senate Committee. During the Senate Committee hearing Sen. Pino a self-professing “Catholic for Choice,” brazenly decided to lecture the 200 citizens who gathered for the hearing and incorrectly stated that “the Bible has no scriptural basis for when life begins!” He also publicly rebuked the three New Mexico Bishops for attempting to “force Roman Catholic teachings upon people.”
New Mexico Senator
Gerald Ortiz Y. Pino (D)
Candidate for Excommunication?
Earlier in the Legislative session during a Senate Committee hearing on Senate Bill 437 Physician Admitting Privileges for Abortions, Sen. Pino cut off the testimony of expert witness Tara Shaver, Senior Policy Advisor of Protest ABQ when she attempted to introduce 911 calls made from Albuquerque abortion facilities. Sen. Pino objected and threw a “tantrum,” claiming that the 911 calls were “too emotional” when the bill’s sponsor Sen. Brandt asked for the 911 calls to be played, which documented severe injuries sustained by women from Albuquerque abortion clinics. SB 437 would have prevented abortion providers in New Mexico from ditching their patients on local Emergency Rooms where other physicians are left in the dark about the woman’s condition after an abortion related injury...Instead, Sen. Pino chose to play politics with women and children's lives, by killing the bill preventing it from receiving a "democratic" up or down vote by the NM Senate.
Pro-Lifers are often labeled "extremists" for their position on opposing abortion, however Sen. Pino and his Democrat allies in the NM Senate hold the most extreme position of supporting Late-Term abortion up to the day of birth. Sen. Pino is the "extremist!"
Albuquerque, NM is known nationally as the "Late-Term Abortion Capital of America" due to the fact that it is home to one of the largest late term abortion facilities outside of communist China...it just so happens that this Abortion, "Killing Center" is in Sen. Pino's Albuquerque district!
It's long overdue that New Mexicans held their pro-abortion legislators accountable, Protest ABQ is doing just that and our hope is that hearts will be changed in such a way that we will begin to see results at the legislative level.
Protest ABQ is a peaceful awareness campaign launched to educate and stand against the injustice of abortion through a strategic and sustained presence. Protest ABQ strives to educate Albuquerque and New Mexico residents on what abortion really is and what it looks like. While Protest ABQ is opposed to abortion and seeks the reversal of Roe v. Wade and its progeny, Protest ABQ acknowledges that it must do all it can to protect the lives, health, and safety of vulnerable women who are subjected to an abortion and to protect and preserve the life of the unborn child.

The University of New Mexico (UNM) hosted a wellness fair at Coronado Mall this Saturday. The one thing UNM wants to do is keep their radical abortion agenda out of the public eye…so PROTEST ABQ was there to let the public know about UNM’s dirty little secret: A radical pre-born child killing agenda that includes training medical students in performing abortions, using tax dollars to fund these abortions and naming their top abortionist Eve Espey as the Chair for the entire OB-GYN department.
Protest ABQ also passed out postcards highlighting the truth about UNM’s radical abortion agenda.
“UNM And Abortion
UNM uses New Mexico tax payer money to run the UNM Center for Reproductive
Health (UNMCRH) abortion clinic.
UNMCRH is involved in the following activities:
-Performing abortion up to 22 weeks (including for genetic indications).
-Training UNM medical residents in abortions techniques under the Ryan Residency Training Program.
-Conducting experimental abortion and contraceptive research on patients.
Trainers participating in the Ryan program include late-term abortionist Curtis Boyd
and wife, Glenna. Many UNM Hospital staff also participate in this training.
14 calls for emergency medical assistance were placed to 911 dispatchers by Southwestern
Women’s Options (SWO) and the University of New Mexico Center for Reproductive
Health (UNMCRH) over a 35-month time frame between November, 2008, and
September, 2011. Abortion is not “safe” just because it is legal.”
The University of New Mexico is the state’s “flagship” university although it is anything but prestigious. Their biggest failure is how they devalue vulnerable women and pre-born children. These very children would be the future of our state if they were allowed to be born. UNM is killing our future. Until UNM stops killing these babies it will be tainted by the blood of the innocent and worthy of our protest until everyone knows the truth about their sinister agenda.
Check out these two ground-breaking reports highlighting UNM’s dirty little secret by Tara Shaver:

Lobos of Death: A Look at the Radical Abortion Agenda at the University of New Mexico (Part 2)
