During the press conference Tara Shaver, Spokesperson for Protest ABQ spoke to the fact that, 5 state governors have de-funded Planned Parenthood and 13 states have launched criminal investigations into Planned Parenthood’s baby body part for profit scheme. All the while New Mexico fully funds abortion through state Medicaid with our tax dollars and abortion facilities are telling patients that their babies remains may be used in medical research which violates New Mexico law.

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.

Unresponsive: New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas Refuses to Answer Criminal Complaints by Private Citizens and by the U.S. Congress
By Tara Shaver
Albuquerque, NM- Protest ABQ recently announced that with the new year comes a new focus in the battle for human life in New Mexico. Attorney General Hector Balderas has been unresponsive about the status of a criminal complaint and a congressional criminal referral regarding the University of New Mexico and Southwestern Women's Options involvement in the harvesting and trafficking of aborted baby remains.
Since he continues to be evasive Protest ABQ has launched a statewide public awareness campaign to let his constituents know that he is shirking his duty as Attorney General. Postcards will be delivered into mailboxes across the state this weekend that clearly depict what Balderas is ignoring, the brutal murder of innocent children in the state and also how much time he has had to properly investigate and prosecute any illegal activity by the New Mexico abortion cartel.
It has been over 500 days since Protest ABQ filed an initial complaint with the AG's office with concerns about Southwestern Women's Options consent forms that made it mandatory for a woman to relinquish her dead child's remains to medical research (in possible violation of both state and federal laws) in order for her to obtain an abortion at this facility.
It has been over 160 days since the congressional panel on Infant Lives issued their 291 page criminal referral to Balderas believing that SWO and UNM may be in violation of state and federal laws on using aborted baby remains for research and having too close of a relationship with one another.
"Attorney General Balderas has the duty to investigate and determine whether state or federal laws have been broken by the New Mexico abortion cartel. It has been reported that Balderas is considering a run for Governor of New Mexico in 2018, since Susana Martinez's tenure will come to an end. However, if Hector Balderas cannot do what is currently required of him as the state's chief legal attorney and chief law enforcement officer, then New Mexicans shouldn't support him if he throws his hat in for the state's highest office. New Mexico has a sordid history of career politicians climbing the political ladder despite shirking their responsibilities, and the concerns of the people of New Mexico," stated Bud Shaver, Executive Director of Protest ABQ.
