Santa Fe, NM- Today Protest ABQ launched a new initiative titled "Investigate and Prosecute" and it is aimed at urging New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas to investigate complaints and referrals submitted to him regarding the out of control abortion cartel in the state. A press conference and protest was held at both the New Mexico capital building and at the Attorney General's office.
Fr. Stephen Imbarrato: The Protest Priest of Priests for Life issued the following statement:
"What's going on here in New Mexico, what's going on throughout the United States in terms of our unborn pre-born brothers and sisters in the womb has to come to an end. We have protested the democrats and the republicans, why? Because it's the complicity of both political parties, the silence of the republicans who condone abortion in this state and the outright support of the democrats in the state that has brought New Mexico to where it is. Our rhetoric is always going to be clear, our actions are always going to be peaceful but also they're going to manifest the reality of what's going on in this country, this state that pre-born babies are being killed unfettered..."
In addition, Tara Shaver, Senior Policy Advisor for Protest ABQ issued the following statement at today's press conference,
New Mexico Attorney General, Hector Balderas has instituted what he calls a 'family-centric model' that is supposed to put families first. Families are so vitally important in promoting a culture of life but we must get to the point where we recognize our pre-born brothers and sisters as members of our families before they are born.

We expanded our protest from the State Capital to New Mexico Attorney General, Hector Balderas's Santa Fe office.
New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas has one formal complaint and two criminal referrals regarding potential local and federal laws that are currently being violated by members of the state's abortion cartel. He has known about these alleged violations since June 2015, that's over 570 days.
In the meantime pre-born babies continue to be murdered and their organs, tissues and body parts are harvested and transported between the nation's largest late term abortion facility, Southwestern Women's Options and the publicly funded University of New Mexico for experimental research.
In addition to our protest presence in Santa Fe, Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, Tara Shaver and Protest ABQ's general counsel Angelo Artuso, paid a visit to Attorney General Hector Balderas' Albuquerque office.
