Albuquerque, NM- Planned Parenthood has been caught harvesting and selling aborted baby organs, tissue and extremities in a recent investigation done by The Center for Medical Progress.
This ground breaking research about Planned Parenthood's involvement in illegally selling baby body parts has given the pro-life community in New Mexico new concerns about what is likely happening inside the largest late term abortion clinic outside of communist China, Southwestern Women's Options.
Members of Protest ABQ have Southwestern Women's Options informed consent paperwork that every abortion patient must sign indicating that "tissue and parts will be removed during the procedure, and I consent to their examination and their use in medical research and their disposal by the clinic and/or physician in the manner they deem appropriate." This agreement is mandatory, it's not optional.
"The selling of baby body parts after an abortion is worthy of protest and the pro-life community stood strong together on Friday, July 17, 2015 outside of Planned Parenthood to peacefully protest this horrific and inhumane practice," stated Bud Shaver, Executive Director of Protest ABQ.
Protest and Press conference at Planned Parenthood located in Albuquerque, New Mexico with Fr. Stephen Imbarrato of Priests for Life, Tara Shaver, Spokesperson for Protest ABQ, Pastor and Apostle Manny Lardizabal of New Mexico Heartland Apostolic Prayer Network, and Pastor Eric Lamb, Associate Pastor at Calvary Chapel of Albuquerque.
Over 100 people protested the fact that #PPSellsBabyParts!
The pro-life community demands answers about whether or not pre-born children are being born alive to harvest organs in the latest stages of pregnancy in Albuquerque. "Specimens" must be digoxin free in order to be sold, digoxin is the drug that is used to cause a fetal heart attack in 2nd and 3rd trimester abortions. Either these babies are being partially birthed (partial birth abortions are illegal) and then killed or they are being born alive and then killed after which their organs, tissue and extremities are being harvested and sold for profit.
Protest ABQ is calling for an investigation by the NM Attorney General's office and are urging Governor Susana Martinez to encourage such an investigation.
Please continue to call both the AG and the Governor with the following points:
-NM is home to the largest late term abortion facility in the nation where babies are killed up to the day of birth.
-This facility's own consent form mandates that women agree to the use of their babies bodies to be used for medical research.
-At least 5 other states have launched investigations to ensure that this practice of harvesting and selling aborted baby body parts are not occurring in their jurisdiction.
