Botched Late-Term Abortion Lands 14th Woman in Hospital Since 2008
An ambulance arrived at Southwestern Women’s Options, a late-term abortion clinic in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and transported an abortion patient to UNM Medical Center at approximately 1:00 p.m. today, Friday, March 1, 2013.
This is the 14th medical emergency since November, 2008. The last medical emergency at SWO took place on February 7, 2013.
The woman, who was reportedly from Utah, arrived at the clinic earlier in the day along with family members, but declined to converse with Bud Shaver, a pro-life activist with Project Defending Life, who was outside the abortion clinic at the time of the incident. It is believed that she was at the clinic for the final day of a late-term abortion.
Tara Shaver was able to confirm that Southwestern Women’s Options did not call 911, but rather made a direct call to the ambulance company even though such calls take longer for emergency units to respond. This is contrary to sworn testimony provided by SWO abortionist Shelley Sella that stated SWO’s policy is to always call 911 in the event of a medical emergency.
Shaver reported that Sella’s associate, Susan Robinson, was the abortionist on duty during the incident. Robinson and Sella, along with Maryland abortionist LeRoy Carhart and Colorado abortionist Warren Hern were featured in the widely publicized film “After Tiller” that debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January. They are among the few who openly do third-trimester abortions. ...
