Albuquerque residents received graphic mailers from a pro-life group last week, exposing the radical abortion position of Democratic City Council Candidate Pat Davis, who is also the Executive Director of the abortion rights group ProgressNowNM.
The mailers were meant to be graphic, says Bud Shaver of Protest ABQ, a pro-life organization which paid for the mailers. Protest ABQ has worked tirelessly in New Mexico to close the infamous Southwestern Women’s Options late-term abortion facility operated by abortionist Curtis Boyd. They have also worked to pass strict abortion laws, educating the public with truth trucks that show what abortion does to unborn babies. Shaver states:
While Davis claims to be “progressive” he really champions archaic practices such a late-term abortion. Davis will not bring progress to ABQ but instead, he will ensure that barbaric late-term abortions will continue in our city.
A local news outlet reported on the controversial mailers but censored the images (shown above). The mailer states, “Pat Davis: Too extreme for City Council District 6, Davis champions this… Late term abortion victim, this is currently legal in NM. This woman died from LEGAL abortion… and you can expect more of this if he’s elected.”
An uncensored copy of the mailer, containing an image of a very late term aborted baby alongside the image of Marla Cardamone, who died during a legal abortion, can be seen here (warning, side two is extremely graphic):
Mailer – Side One
In an e-mail to supporters, Pat Davis’s campaign responded:
This weekend the ugly attacks against Pat hit a new low when an extreme anti-choice group inundated our district with mailers containing “graphic and disgusting” images.
And on his Facebook page, Davis added:
Today’s anonymous, negative attack message was graphic and unnecessary. It was designed to be in mailboxes on Saturdays when kids are home to pick up the mail and intended to keep voters away from the polls.
Bud Shaver told Live Action News that he has received some vulgar complaints from citizens about the graphic mailers, one of which read in part, “…instead of wasting your money spamming my inbox, maybe you could spend your money on feeding poor kids that have already been born….” The rest of the message could not be published due to profanity.
But Shaver was unwavering, stating, “The residents of Albuquerque deserve to know where aspiring politicians stand on pre-born child killing.”
Tara Shaver, also of Protest ABQ, emphasized that the group’s goal is to make sure the electorate knows what they are voting for by electing Davis:
Pat Davis unashamedly supports the killing of innocent pre-born children and Protest ABQ will oppose him and expose who he really is to his constituents.
Instead of being upset with us, those in his community who received postcards clearly stating his position should direct their anger toward encouraging him to change his position.
The election for Albuquerque City Council will be held October 6th.
Pastor Richard Mansfield, New Beginnings Church to speak at memorial site as part of National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children, Saturday, September 12
Albuquerque, NM- Albuquerque will be the site of a memorial service for unborn victims of abortion on Saturday, September 12. The sponsors of this local event are Surrendered Hearts New Mexico, Albuquerque Right to Life, The HUB of New Mexico Internet Radio Station, Pro-Life Witness and Protest ABQ. The service, part of the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children, will take place from 12:00-1:00 p.m. at St. John Vianney Church, 1001 Meteor Ave, Rio Rancho, New Mexico 87144.
This event comes in the wake of series of undercover videos showing top officials at Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain, scheming to sell by body parts of aborted babies for profit.
“When Planned Parenthood looks at the broken body of an aborted baby, they see a commodity they can exploit for profit. But we see a tiny brother or sister who deserves to be mourned for and solemnly buried,” said Bud Shaver, Executive Director, Protest ABQ, one of the organizers of the Day of Remembrance in Albuquerque. “Visiting the places where these children are memorialized cuts through all the rhetoric surrounding abortion. We will never know these unnamed victims of abortion, but we will never forget them—or stop fighting to restore legal protection to unborn children”
The Day of Remembrance is being organized by three national pro-life groups--Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Priests for Life and the Pro-Life Action League—to humanize the unborn victims of abortion by raising awareness of their burial places and other sites dedicated to their memory. The bodies of tens of thousands of aborted children have been retrieved from trash bins, landfills and other locations and buried at gravesites across the country.
At AbortionMemorials.com, visitors can learn the stories of how many of these children were killed, how they were found, and the details of their burial. The website also lists hundreds of memorial sites dedicated to the victims of abortion throughout the United States.
All are welcome to attend this event and families are encouraged to attend with their children. Please also feel free to bring flowers to lay at the memorial site at St John Vianney Church.
