Planned Parenthood is Really Getting Desperate
(Pic by Fr. Stephen Imbarrato: The Protest Priest)
Fr. Stephen Imbarrato: The Protest Priest of Priests for Life issued the following statement,
"Give courageously to PlannedParenthood!???? 100 years of care and purpose!??? 'Give us your tired (moms), your poor (moms), your huddled masses (babies)...' We will rip your babies from their poor mother's womb, hack them up, and sell them for experimentation! AND THEY ARE JUST GETTING STARTED!?? Progress according to Planned Parenthood!? In a couple of decades or less, maybe they will be dismembering huddled newborns and ripping reproductive organs out of poor, tired moms! Defunding Planned Parenthood is like telling the devil he can't be evil. Shut Planned Parenthood down and lock Richards and her cronies up under RICO Statutes!"

Albuquerque, NM- For two years Protest ABQ has held weekly overpass protests in Albuquerque. Our 4x8 feet banners, which are positioned above Interstate 25, have educated thousands of people about our silent state leaders on abortion, New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez and Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry who likewise ignores abortion in his city, the tax payer funded University of New Mexico and Planned Parenthood's abortion businesses.
Those who may not have ever considered what abortion is have come face to face with it's brutality and many have thanked us for our presence. This week, however, we have encountered a new measure of success with this effort. Planned Parenthood has purchased a billboard that is strategically placed right before the overpass where we protest each week. This location is also in the vicinity of two strip clubs. The nature of PP's billboard is interesting which I will address but the fact that they have made this purchase between $5,000-$15,000 is nothing less than confirmation that our overpass protest presence is effective and that they are desperate.
Their sterile looking billboard seen above shows their desperation, but for what? They claim to be a legitimate healthcare provider yet they are not seeking clients with a list of services they provide, nor are they focusing on the women that they claim so desperately need and want to kill their babies. Instead they are asking for your money.
Does Planned Parenthood Really Need Your Financial Donations?
Planned Parenthood is a "non-profit" that brings in over a billion dollars in profit each year and then gets money from the government as well, compliments of you and I, the taxpayer.
One commenter on Facebook rightly asked,
"Aren't our 1/2 billion dollars in taxes enough?"
Planned Parenthood is the nations largest abortion provider and in addition to killing over 300,000 babies a year, they are also profiting from harvesting and trafficking the babies body parts: How Planned Parenthood Profits from Fetal Tissue “Donation”
The Abortion Cartel is ALL About the Money... We are ALL about Prayer.
Pro-life billboards aim to educate about human life and offer assistance to pregnant women, our movement is truly concerned for people, not a profit. In contrast, Planned Parenthood is more concerned about lining their own pockets than they are about helping and truly caring for women. Let's pray that those driving by see the truth about where Planned Parenthood stands and what their priority is.
The Abortion Industry Uses Lies and Deceptive Rhetoric...Protest ABQ Exposes Their Lies With the Light of the Truth.
During the past couple of years doing the overpass protests, we have endured harassment by city and state officials. Watch these two videos:
We have even been attacked and assaulted: Abortion Activists Assault Pro-Lifers, Throw Their Signs Off Highway Overpass
But we will not be deterred in our peaceful free-speech activities! This is about life and death.
(BUSTED: Dr. Paul Roth CEO )
By Tara Shaver
Albuquerque, NM- A University of New Mexico (UNM) insider has shared an email with Protest ABQ from Paul Roth, Executive Vice President and Chancellor for Health Sciences, CEO, UNM Health System and Dean, School of Medicine, that sheds light on his apparent deplorable management of the UNM Health System.
This leak comes days after a video recording of Paul Roth admitting that aborted baby brains were dissected during a summer youth workshop hosted by UNM that was captured by local pro-life advocate Marcie May. This video has sent shockwaves through the pro-life community and has even penetrated the hearts of average Americans because of the callous disregard Roth displays on the video.
The UNM whistleblower revealed to Protest ABQ Paul Roth's desperate attempt to do damage control due to his apparent mismanagement of UNM Hospital. On August 12, 2016 Roth sent an email to Health System Leaders summarizing extremely low rankings the hospital has been given. An excerpt from Roth's email reads,
"But this past year we – and the public – saw some sobering rankings. A C – up from a D – in Leapfrog, landing in the first percentile for physician satisfaction, mediocre quality and patient safety scores at UHC, the loss of accreditation for our Dermatology residency program. And now, a one-star rating (out of five) at UNMH from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services."
During the correspondence with the UNM insider, they state without mincing words,
"I'm not sure if you know, but UNMH was ranked very low by Medicaid, Medicare and other hospital ranking programs. UNMH has a 2% physician satisfaction rating. UNM dermatology lost their residency program. Dr. Paul Roth is not running the hospital very well. Roth should be fired for how poorly UNMH is doing as a hospital."
The UNM insider's frustration with Paul Roth's leadership continues,
"UNMH is losing a lot of doctors. As stated, they have about a 2% doctor approval rating. They scored very low by many organizations and had to bring a company in, costing millions of dollars, to try and make UNMH a better hospital. Dr. Roth, based on how badly UNMH is scoring, should be fired, just like any other CEO doing a very poor job."
The company that UNM paid millions to is called the Studer Group, which works with organizations to "achieve and sustain exceptional improvement in clinical outcomes and financial results," to come and assist UNMH in turning things around. Documents regarding Mission: Excellence and the Studer Group have been removed from UNM's search portal.
Further down in Roth's email to UNM Health System Leaders, Paul Roth lectures them by saying,
"We must strive to behave professionally, with empathy and caring..."
Here is Dr. Paul Roth on video. Does Roth come across as professional, empathetic or caring to you?: Dr. Paul Roth on UNM HSC's dissection of "fetal brains" with summer camp students
From The Daily Wire:
Can I ask you to repeat what you said before about the workshop with UNM fetal remains with high school students?" May asks Roth. "Yes, we had a faculty member who obtained some tissue, and during one of these summer workshops, uh, dissected I think one or two fetal brains," answered Roth, unapologetically. The dean did not disclose where the fetal remains were originally sourced. He also failed to show a glimmer of remorse.
Roth is clearly not doing a very good job of running UNM Hospital and as 2nd in command of the entire health system he has been given a pass for far too long.
"Paul Roth receives a salary of $656,500 paid for by New Mexico taxpayers. How is it that he maintains his position of CEO at UNM when both insiders and those outside looking in can see the problems as well as the atrocities he has brought upon UNM during his tenure? Could it be politically motivated that New Mexico legislators cover for him and support him despite the mounting evidence of his diabolical and deplorable leadership?" stated Bud Shaver, Executive Director of Protest ABQ.

Continuing Impact of a Deeply Flawed Ruling
By Sid Gutierrez, Retired NASA Astronaut Practicing Grandfather
Albuquerque, NM- The recent Supreme Court ruling on a Texas law requiring medical protections for women having abortions is yet another decision stemming from Roe v. Wade, the original case. Roe v. Wade has had a “profound” impact on our nation – over 58 million abortions. Yet, how many people know the reasoning behind this ruling? How many of those who passionately defend it have actually read the ruling? Since medical science and biology are in agreement that human life begins at fertilization, and because the 14th Amendment to the Constitution explicitly states “nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law”, I have wondered how Justice Blackmun rationalized terminating innocent human life. So I studied the decision. I encourage you to do the same.
I expected to find reference to current (circa 1973) medical journals, biology textbooks and testimony from doctors, scientists and other experts about when life begins. It is not there, but you will find reference to Aristotle. Aristotle reasoned that life in the womb began with a vegetative soul, then transitioned to an animal soul and finally took on a human soul. This is where the mistaken concept of “quickening” evolved from. I am not making this up. This is the equivalent of a Justice resorting to alchemy to adjudicate an environmental issue. If one wants to reference history, abortion was condemned by the Assyrians, Hittites, early Hindus, Buddhists of India, Egyptians, Persians, Greeks and Romans – all before Christianity. Have you noticed that opposition to abortion is part of becoming civilized? Justice Blackmun did recognize that the Hippocratic Oath, composed in ancient Greece, forbade the practice of abortion. But he then disregarded it. Please study the ruling. You will find he had to disregard a lot to write the decision he did.
Understandably, abortion was condemned by Christianity from the beginning, even when primitive biological knowledge made it almost impossible to ascertain when life begins. That changed in the second quarter of the nineteenth century when biological research lead to the modern understanding of the development of human life. The mammalian egg was discovered in 1827 and the cell was recognized as the structural unit of organisms in 1839. Within the next two decades physicians had an accurate scientific understanding of human development and when life begins. In 1857 the American Medical Association led a “physicians’ crusade” to protect the unborn starting from the moment of conception. These statutory changes were not based on religion. They were based on the fundamental value placed on human life and a more complete scientific understanding of human development. By the end of the Civil War, twenty‐six of thirty‐six states and six of the ten territories had passed laws prohibiting abortion. Within three years, the states passed the 14th Amendment including the right to life for all persons. As noted earlier, this right is specifically enumerated, but Justice Blackmun ignored it along with the scientific discoveries and legislation that preceded it. He did, however, find a hidden right to an abortion in the same amendment. It is impossible to believe that the state legislatures intended to hide a right to an abortion in the 14th Amendment when they had just passed laws prohibiting it.
I hope I have identified enough problems with Roe v. Wade for you to decide to study it. These are not religious issues, but scientific and legal problems. Many scholars consider Roe v. Wade one of the most flawed Supreme Court decisions, ranking it alongside the Dred Scott Case. Of course the 14th Amendment overturned Dred Scott paving the way for advancements in the civil rights for the born. We can only hope that Roe v. Wade is superseded by rulings based on science and the 14th Amendment making way for a more compassionate country that recognizes the civil rights of all – born and unborn.

FAST FORWARD TO 2016 The SCOTUS Continues their Flawed Logic and Total Disregard for Facts or Science: Protest ABQ's Response To SCOTUS Decision And Its Implications On New Mexico
By Tara Shaver
Albuquerque, NM- On August 16, 2016 The UNM Health Sciences Center held a meeting during which they discussed the recent scandal regarding their use of aborted babies for experiential research. In addition to having UNM student residents involved in this inhumane and controversial research, documents obtained by the U.S. House Select Panel on Human Lives recently revealed that UNM conducted a summer youth workshop where aborted babies brains were dissected!
New Mexico Alliance for Life was tipped off about the meeting late Monday night (Aug. 15th) and stated in their press release afterwards, "The UNM Board of Regents met today as well, and taxpayers showed up to ask more questions about these troubling practices. UNM Regents and UNM President Bob Franks were urged to be transparent with the public."
Marcie May reporting for The HUB of New Mexico was able to ask Paul Roth directly about the controversy surrounding a UNM Summer Youth workshop where baby brains were dissected.
Since 2011 members of Protest ABQ have worked to expose and connect the dots regarding the University of New Mexico's involvement in experimental abortion research and practices in collaboration with notorious late-term abortion killing center, Southwestern Women's Options. We have long concluded that UNM is in fact the heart of the abortion industry in New Mexico and have exposed that Paul Roth is the driving force of their radical abortion agenda.
In addition to killing babies and using their body parts for experimental research, numerous women have been seriously injured during botched abortions at UNM's own publicly funded free-standing abortion clinic, UNM Center for Reproductive Health. In fact, on August 16, 2016 the same day of the meeting conducted by the UNM Health Sciences Center, Operation Rescue reported on a horrendous abortion injury documented by a confidential informant to Protest ABQ.

Protest ABQ joins New Mexico Alliance for Life's call to contact the UNM Board of Regents and urge them to stop the harvesting and experimental research of baby body parts and to sever all ties with notorious late-term abortionist Curtis Boyd's Southwestern Women's Options.
Please contact the UNM Regents and urge them to abandon their radical abortion agenda and terminate the contract of Dr. Paul Roth:
Phone- (505) 277 7639
Listen to Marcie's interview with The Hub of New Mexico as she recounts her testimony before the Regents and interview with Paul Roth here:
By Tara Shaver,
Albuquerque, NM- A confidential informant has come forward to Protest ABQ with information about a 27 year old woman who suffered an incomplete abortion at the University of New Mexico Center for Reproductive Health (UNMCRH) abortion facility. The next day the woman was admitted to UNM Hospital with an elevated white blood cell count, rapid heart beat, fever and abdominal pain. According to the Mayo Clinic's website, Patient "A" exhibited symptoms that warrant a sepsis diagnosis.
On May 17, 2016 Patient A arrived at UNMCRH 19.6 weeks pregnant for a two day D&E abortion procedure. On this day laminaria was inserted into Patient A's cervix for artificial dilation despite the fact that she wasn't feeling well and her lab results showed that her white blood cell count was alarmingly high at 21.7. The website Perinatology.com states that a normal wbc count for a pregnant woman in the second trimester is between 5.6-14.8. An elevated white blood cell count is an indication that a patient has an infection, disease or weakened immune system. Patient A was already at a high risk for infection.
Despite the fact that this patient had a compromised immune system UNMCRH placed performing the abortion above Patient A's overall health and well being. They proceeded with the second trimester abortion procedure, and dismembered the 19 week old pre-born child. After the procedure an IUD was inserted, as is the practice of many abortionists under the guise of preventing future pregnancies for up to five years. UNM has a special research interest in this protocol and women have told Protest ABQ that they are ruthlessly pressured into having IUD's inserted after abortions and after live births at UNM Hospital.
The very next day, after a restless night of sleep and increasing pain Patient A sought medical attention at UNM Hospital, where physicians that attended her suspected post abortion endometritis (an infection of the uterus) and an incomplete abortion. Patient A's IUD was removed. She spent three days on antibiotics but on the fourth day her temperature spiked again and the UNM Family Planning Service division was consulted to provide a D&C to suction out any remaining fetal parts and or tissue.
All surgical abortion procedures are very invasive and opens a woman's body up to germs and bacteria. It is completely unacceptable and may even constitute medical malpractice, that UNMCRH performed an incomplete abortion, knowing that Patient A had a compromised immune system and then inserted an IUD. This is not the kind of "care" that puts the patient first.
On May 22nd she was scheduled for the operating room at UNM Hospital for the D&C and was then discharged the next day. It is likely that an acute infection of this kind will leave Patient A with significant uterine scarring that could prevent future pregnancies.
The University of New Mexico (UNM) has been plagued by scandals over the past few years due to its abortion involvement. UNMCRH utilizes medical residents in experimental research and also trains them to perform late-term abortions. In addition to Patient A, several women have been injured at UNM's free standing abortion facility UNMCRH.
In 2012 members of Protest ABQ reported that UNMCRH is no longer calling 911 for medical emergencies to ensure there isn't a public record of how many injuries are actually occurring. Now in 2016, this state funded institution has been implicated with a criminal referral by a congressional panel regarding the use of aborted baby body parts and is currently under investigation by the New Mexico Attorney General.
Despite all of this, The University of New Mexico is still perpetuating a radical abortion agenda and New Mexico tax payers are involuntarily footing the bill for it.
Fr. Stephen Imbarrato: The Protest Priest with Priests for Life issued the following statement, "We know in the past that ambulances have been sent to UNMCRH on several occasions. Of course, that information is now being denied the public as is much of what The University of New Mexico does. What will it take for all interested parties (Regents, students, alumni, elected leaders) to wake up, speak up, and put a stop to a business that has been wounding women while making money aborting babies at every stage of pregnancy?"
For years Protest ABQ has been exposing the fact that New Mexico continues to be a state without any laws protecting pre-born babies because of the silent inaction of New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez and other leaders who continue to turn a blind eye hoping that this injustice will just go away. The University of New Mexico is the heart of the New Mexico abortion industry, and has been given cover by corrupt politicians in both parties.
In a recent interview Congressman Steve Pearce (R-NM) echoed the concerns of Protest ABQ about the lack of leadership at all levels of government in New Mexico stating, "I'm to the point where I'm saying that you must be approving of what is happening or you would be responding. New Mexico has evolved into the largest, the most abortion friendly state in the country right under our eyes and I for one do not think it's appropriate."

By Fr. Stephen Imbarrato: The Protest Priest
ProtestChildkilling: Can We End Preborn Childkilling in 5 Years or Less?
ProtestChildKilling is not another pro-life ministry or organization. ProtestChildKilling is a movement within the pro-life movement that believes we can end pre-born childkilling in 5 years or less by effectively utilizing 2 civil rights models that have been successful in the past.
Martin Luther King Jr. successfully used sustained national peaceful protests in the 1960s to gain civil rights for blacks in the United States. Lech Walesa and the Solidarity Movement used the threat and eventual implementation of peaceful national strikes to cause the communists to leave Poland in the 1980s.
Today we are faced with an immoral and corrupt government that is becoming more and more tyrannical in many areas important to people of faith and morals. This government for 40 plus years has at worst supported pre-born childkilling and at best has condoned it. The pro-life movement has made enormous strides in these 4 decades and has achieved great success utilizing a mosaic of organizations and ministries that address every necessary aspect of ending abortion; from political pressure to post abortion healing, from closing abortion mills to pregnancy resource centers, from prayer and fast to sidewalk activism, and much more.
Everything we do in the pro-life movement is an important part of the mosaic of defending life and ending abortion. We have had issues though. We have lacked unity for a variety of reasons. Forty plus years of abortion has also caused a sense that it may be another 40 years, a generation or a lifetime, to end pre-born childkilling. A lack of will can be seen in some aspects of our movement, not in fighting abortion, but actually ending it and ending it decisively! Thus the 5 year plan brings a new perspective that calls for a renewed will and decisive strategy to end the bloodshed.
What do we ask? For now, nothing more than all of us continue doing what we are doing to fight and end abortion. But please, also go to the website, www.protestchildkilling.com, and read the pro-life protest manifesto and check out the slideshow and videos. Also pray and fast about where we go as a movement from here.
Everything we do in defense of life, whether we walk for life or march for life, counsel, pray, fast, witness, or standup for life, we should also do in protest of pre-born childkilling. Using the mantle of “protest,” always peaceful and prayerful, is what can unite us within the diversity of our work as well as also send the message that we have the collective “will” to finally end this holocaust in time definite.
The movement has known protests in the past, the most dramatic being the Operation Rescue movement. Today we have “ProtestPP.” Many groups protest on an ongoing basis as their charism. We need to build on this movement until we are unified enough and have the resolve to finally end this - with 5 years being the goal.
The 5 year goal to end pre-born childkilling is not about overturning Roe vs Wade. The focus is not just making abortion illegal. The focus and the goal of this decisive plan to end pre-born childkilling is personhood from the moment of conception for our unborn brothers and sisters; eliminating the excluded class of the unborn and restoring their proper rights, dignity, and protection.
Some Thoughts for Prayer and Reflection…
All pieces of the life mosaic are necessary and important. However, everything we do for life or in defense of life, we also do in protest of our brothers and sisters in the womb being killed and our women and others being wounded.
We are protesting an immoral and corrupt government that created the “excluded class” of the unborn and has supported and condoned pre-born childkilling for 40+ years and is now tyrannically attacking marriage, family, and religious freedom.
We have been dealing with this immoral and corrupt government for 40+ years on their terms instead of imposing on our elected and appointed leadership the moral and just position that personhood begins at conception.
Peaceful and prayerful protests have been successful in the past.
No peaceful and prayerful protest is too small or ineffective.
The ultimate peaceful and prayerful protest is the potential and, if necessary, actual implementation of a national strike in the mold of Polish Solidarity.
We need to grow from large national protests done periodically to sustained national protests in the mold of what several groups are already doing regionally.
We need to grow beyond a concern about image and focus on the truth that we are dealing with pre-born childkilling and the killing needs to end.
The peaceful and prayerful 5 year plan is focused decisively on the last year of the next President’s 1st term.
PLEASE GO TO WWW.PROTESTCHILDKILLING.COM. Please read, study, pray, and fast. All comments and suggestions are welcome.
The Protestchildkilling Movement encourages people to support their local and / or national prolife groups…protestchildkilling is a movement not an organization.
The Protestchildkilling Movement does not wish access to any pro-life database, but hopes that all prolife groups will join the movement and forward information about this decisive peaceful and prayerful plan to end preborn childkilling.
Please follow the movement on FB www.facebook.com/Protestchildkilling.

Albuquerque, NM- In an exclusive interview with The Hub of New Mexico, Congressman Steve Pearce takes on the baby body parts scandal happening in New Mexico head on. Without mincing words, the congressman talks about the lack of transparency within the University of New Mexico (UNM) and the silence of New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez and other leaders.
Congressman Pearce correctly stated that, "New Mexico has evolved into the largest, the most abortion friendly state in the country right under our eyes and I for one do not think it's appropriate."
According to Pearce, in 2015, members of the Select Panel on Infant Lives brought to his attention that "UNM is the only institution in the country that appears to be buying these harvested body parts from babies." Pearce claims to have reached out to officials at UNM, including the new president of the Board of Regents Robert Doughty who mentioned willingness to meet with panel member in D.C. but never pursued such a meeting. Pearce also claims that Governor Martinez never reciprocated the panels efforts to work together which in turn led to the panel filing a criminal referral with New Mexico Attorney General, Hector Balderas.
Listen to the full interview here: CONGRESSMAN STEVE PEARCE Statement on UNMHSC & Southwestern Women’s Options Investigation
Pearce expounded more about his involvement from the beginning and his efforts to get cooperation from UNM and Governor Martinez's office by stating, "I think that the institution [UNM] has been willing to look the other way while things are happening on its watch. We've been very transparent all the way through with UNM, with the state of New Mexico, and the governor's office and really with almost no response [from] them. So I'm to the point where I'm saying that you must be approving of what is happening or you would be responding."
Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, The Protest Priest urges other state leaders to follow congressman Pearce's leadership and to come out publicly about this matter stating, "Why aren't we hearing from every pro-life elected official from the Governor, to the Speaker of the house, his Whip, pro-life state senators and house members about Balderas' inaction? Where is the outcry from the elected pro-life community? It is the same silence that Pearce speaks of that has gotten us here! Silence about pre-born baby killing and all its effects is the same as condoning and consenting to it!"
In July 2015 Protest ABQ filed a formal criminal complaint with Attorney General Hector Balderas' office regarding concerns that, according to his consent form, Curtis Boyd was harvesting aborted baby body parts at his late term abortion facility, Southwestern Women's Options and allocating them for medical experimentation without getting proper consent from his patients. That complaint set the stage for the recent criminal referral issued to Balderas' office by the congressional panel on Infant lives.
In the wake an overflow of public outcry over this scandal in New Mexico, AG Balderas has asked that concerned citizens stop calling his office. When asked by The HUB of NM what to do moving forward and how to get AG Balderas to act Pearce responded, "First of all I would take his thing saying no more phone calls and I would begin to play that as a radio ad saying this is your Attorney General saying that he does not want to hear about the issue! Secondly, I would begin to work in the circles of the democrat party that are pro-life and say look, you're going to have things that a congressional research committee believe have been infractions of the law and maybe you can be helpful'. At the end of the day I would be talking publicly not privately! Does the public believe that it has a valid nature for him to look deeper into it or is it going to simply become a political cover up? That frankly is the question."
Protest ABQ along with New Mexico Alliance for Life have been attempting to get to the bottom of this over the past year.
Bud Shaver, executive director of Protest ABQ issued the following statement, "Protest ABQ would like to thank Congressman Pearce for taking a strong leadership role in digging into this scandal effecting our state and the web of complicity from the New Mexico abortion cartel that is perpetuating the culture of death rampant here. It is our hope that more leaders in New Mexico will rise up and be a public advocate for our pre-born neighbors dying daily."
