University of New Mexico's Abortion Clinic Forced Out Due To Pro-Life Campaign

University of New Mexico's Abortion Clinic Forced Out Due To Pro-Life Campaign

Albuquerque, NM - The University of New Mexico Center for Reproductive Health (UNMCRH) abortion clinic is being forced out of its long-time location at 1701 Moon St. due to a pro-life presence that has ramped up in recent weeks. March 25 is scheduled to be the clinic's last day at that location.

Recently, Project Defending Life launched its new PROTEST ABQ campaign that focuses on the UNMCRH where medical students from the UNM School of Medicine are trained to do abortions up to 22 weeks. PDL and Operation Rescue had previously exposed a series of botched abortions that required the emergency hospitalization of several UNMCRH patients.

The increased focus has had the effect of driving out the abortion clinic. According to Tara Shaver of Project Defending Life a "trusted source" informed them that the move was directly related to the increased pro-life protest led by Bud Shaver.

"Their exact words to our source were, 'We are moving our location because we are being protested,'" said Tara Shaver.

"This is a huge victory for this neighborhood," Tara Shaver continued. "Due to Bud's faithful public presence over the past 3 years, neighborhood residents often voiced their shock and dismay to Bud once they realized that an abortion clinic was killing children each day in their neighborhood. Their question to Bud was often, 'How can we get this abortion clinic out of our neighborhood?' Well, PROTEST ABQ has proven to be the answer."
