Albuquerque, NM- On April 23, nationally coordinated protests will be held at over 200 Planned Parenthood centers throughout the United States, including the center at 701 San Mateo Blvd. NE in Albuquerque, which is being sponsored by Protest ABQ. These national protests are being organized by the #ProtestPP coalition, formed in response to the undercover videos released last year showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the harvesting and selling of body parts from aborted children.
The protestors in Albuquerque and throughout the country will be standing in solidarity with David Daleiden, the pro-life whistleblower who is facing baseless civil and criminal charges for conducting a 30-month undercover investigation of the abortion industry’s trafficking in fetal tissue. “Planned Parenthood and their powerful allies in government are trying to discredit and silence pro-lifers who are guilty of nothing more than exposing the shocking truth about their abortion practices,” said Bud Shaver, executive director of Protest ABQ. “On April 23, we’ll be setting the record straight in our community.”
Just last week, Protest ABQ filed a formal complaint with the NM Nursing Board against Planned Parenthood abortionist Vivianne Clark, who is a registered nurse. We believe that Clark is in violation of a portion of the NM Criminal Abortion statute that requires physicians to perform abortions.
Please join us as we stand in solidarity with thousands of pro-lifers across the nation to let Planned Parenthood and our communities know that we will continue to expose their lies and seek accountability for them and their atrocities.
#ProtestPP is a coalition of state and national pro-life groups, headed by three national pro-life activist organizations: Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Created Equal, and the Pro-Life Action League. In the wake of the coalition’s two national days of protest last year, more than 20 Planned Parenthood facilities closed and nine states voted to strip the organization of state funding.
When: Saturday, April 23rd
Location- 701 San Mateo Blvd NE. Please use street parking but don't block driveways.

Albuquerque, NM- Protest ABQ has filed a formal complaint with the New Mexico Nursing Board against Vivianne Clark. Clark is a Registered Nurse, license number RN-71112 who is employed by Planned Parenthood of New Mexico.
New Mexico law states that only licensed physicians can perform abortions. Vivianne Clark is not a licensed physician and is therefore in violation of New Mexico’s Criminal Abortion Statute, NMSA Section 30-5-1, et seq. Medicaid data obtained by Protest ABQ through a public records request indicates that since 2012, New Mexico taxpayers have footed the bill for over 200 illegal abortions performed by Vivianne Clark.
In 2013 alone Vivianne Clark performed 91 illegal abortions and was paid over $11,000 from New Mexico Medicaid. Clark has been reimbursed by New Mexico medicaid from 2012 through 2015 for abortions she performed in the first and second trimesters, up to 24 weeks of pregnancy.
Bud Shaver, executive director of Protest ABQ issued the following statement: "It is a disturbing fact that New Mexicans are funding an illegal abortionist through NM medicaid. The over 200 abortions that we have been able to document, based on the NM medicaid data, are only the tip of the iceberg as far as the total number of abortions Vivanne Clark has performed over the years in clear violation of New Mexico law. We are calling upon the New Mexico Nursing Board to do a thorough investigation to get to the bottom of this. Based on what we can already prove, Vivianne Clark's nursing license should be revoked immediately."
In the meantime, Protest ABQ will continue to work to uncover abortion violations in New Mexico which we have been exposing as the abortion capital of the southwest and the late term abortion capital of the nation.
Protest ABQ has documented the New Mexico Abortion Industry's blatant disregard for adhering to existing laws:

Albuquerque, NM- Reuters reported today that even though the number of abortion clinics is dwindling, young medical doctors who want to kill babies by abortion is on the rise due to training programs like Medical Students for Choice and the Ryan Residency Training Program. The University of New Mexico School of Medicine (UNM) is listed as a Medical Students for Choice Chapter, and as we previously reported, UNM has been listed as a Ryan Residency Training site since 2011. Both programs contribute to the radical abortion agenda that is deeply entrenched at this public university.
In 2011, the year that UNM adopted the training program, we reported, "The UNM Center for Reproductive Health is funded in part by a Ryan Residency Training grant. The Kenneth J. Ryan residency training program is a national, privately funded initiative based at the Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health at the University of California, San Francisco. The Ryan program was founded in 1999 with the goal of improving training in abortion and contraception for ob-gyn residents in the United States and Canada."
This quote from the Ryan Residency website comes directly from the The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) Executive Board and reveals an agenda bent on raising up the next generation of abortionists. It best sums up the mission of the program, "To address the shortage of health care providers who perform abortions, the College encourages programs to train physicians and other licensed health care professionals to provide abortion services in a collaborative setting."
Training medical residents to kill and take the most innocent of human life, is the epitome of the betrayal of true medicine.
In addition, we reported back in 2011 that two of the trainers participating in the Ryan program at the University of New Mexico are late-term abortionist Curtis Boyd and his wife, Glenna Boyd. "Curtis Boyd has stated that he trains at UNM and other universities across the country. Documents obtained through open records requests show that Boyd’s own abortion clinic in Albuquerque has been recently responsible for eleven abortion-related medical emergencies, with life-threatening injuries occurring at the rate of one every ten weeks."
Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue released the following statement back in 2011 voicing his concerns over this troubling trend, “The number of abortion clinics has dramatically decreased by over 66% since 1991, partly because young doctors do not want to dirty themselves with the abortion business. Abortionists who quit, retire, or are stripped of their licenses are not being replaced. It is clear that, with the help of tax funding, UNM is in bed with Planned Parenthood and late-term abortionist Boyd to crank out new abortionists in order to stabilize and expand abortion services nationwide. This radical agenda must be exposed.”
(This Screenshot was taken on April 11, 2016 and shows the partnership with Planned Parenthood AND Southwestern Women's Options continues at UNM.)
In 2014, we published a second exposé regarding UNM's abortion training involvement, "UNM is currently one of 68 universities that participate in the Kenneth J. Ryan Residency Program in Abortion and Family Planning. The Ryan Program, founded in 1999, is a national initiative whose mission is to embed abortion training into residency programs throughout the United States and Canada.
In 1996, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) mandated that ob-gyn residency education must include access to experience with induced abortion. This mandate has become an excuse for keeping UNM’s free standing abortion clinic open.
However, ACGME Obstetrics and Gynecology Program Requirement IV.A.2.d states:
No program or resident with a religious or moral objection shall be required to provide training in or to perform induced abortions. Otherwise, access to experience with induced abortion must be part of residency education. This education can be provided outside the institution. [Emphasis added]
It is clear that UNM is not required to run their own freestanding abortion clinic.
The ACGME further states that abortion training programs are required to provide residents with the ability to “opt out” of the programs and even acknowledges that there may be instances where every resident declines to participate in abortion training."
(Abortionist Eve Espey and Paul Roth are the driving force behind UNM's radical abortion agenda.)
Fr. Stephen Imbarrato: The Protest Priest, issued the following statement in reference to the recent Reuters article:
"Both of the groups that are producing this new wave of abortionists, Medical Students for Choice and the Ryan Residency Program are alive and thriving at the University of New Mexico, which is the heart of the abortion industry here in New Mexico and of course New Mexico remains the late term abortion capital of the country. Dr Paul Roth is not only the heart of the UNM abortion business, but surely is spreading abortion throughout New Mexico and the country. Dr. Paul Roth needs to be condemned by Governor Susana Martinez, the UNM Regents, the GOP Republicans, and the Catholic Democrats and their leadership.
"Dr. Paul Roth and Dr. Eve Espey need to have their employment terminated!"
Please call and email Robert Doughty III, UNM Board of Regents President, and politely tell him that Dr. Paul Roth and Dr. Eve Espey must go, not just over troubling questions being raised by a federal investigation into UNM's research utilizing baby body parts, but for their adamant compulsion for all things abortion, which is ruining the reputation of this University."
Robert Doughty III (UNM Board of Regents President)
*Reminder ACGME accreditation does not mandate UNM to have a free standing abortion facility that does 1st and 2nd trimester abortions up to 22 weeks of pregnancy.
