Investigation Reveals Tax-Funded Medicaid Pays for Hundreds of Late-term Abortions

New Albuquerque Investigation Reveals Tax-Funded Medicaid Pays for Hundreds of Late-term Abortions
October 24, 2013 NOTE: Operation Rescue was happy to assist Project Defending Life in the preparation of information for release in this report. Please note especially the video below featuring a UNM Center for Reproductive Health “abortionist-in-training” who did not seem to understand much of how the abortion clinic worked, or even where it was! Especially of interest is her claim that women experiencing risky 2-day surgical abortions in their 19-21st weeks of pregnancy need not return for a follow-up visit, a practice that endangers women’s lives and health. This woman, who identified herself as “Dr. Lyons,” represents what we can expect from abortionists in the future – a future that looks bleak indeed without the hard work of pro-life activists like Bud and Tara Shaver in Albuquerque.

Albuquerque, NM – In just under 30 days, Albuquerque will be the first city in the country with the opportunity to vote to ban late-term abortions starting at 20 weeks of pregnancy. That vote is more important than ever in light of new research that reveals New Mexico’s taxpayers pay for hundreds of abortions each year that are halfway though pregnancy and later – often at the encouragement of the abortion providers themselves.

New Mexico is one of 15 states that uses taxpayer money to fully fund abortions. In 2011, taxpayers funded 1,786 abortions through state Medicaid to the tune of over 1.1 million dollars.
