BREAKING: 50 Botched Abortions, Death from One NM Clinic

Potentially Fatal Injuries: Hemorrhage, Pulmonary Embolism, Others

Albuquerque, NM: Emergency transfer logs obtained by New Mexico Alliance for Life from scandal-ridden late-term abortion business, Southwestern Women’s Options [SWO] in Albuquerque indicate at least 50 women required transfer for serious medical complications or injury to the University of New Mexico Hospital [UNMH] as recent as July 7, 2021. 

Through New Mexico Alliance for Life's investigative work, we obtained the records of women suffering potentially fatal complications including sepsis, pulmonary embolism, hemorrhage, and others through the state's Inspection of Public Records Act.

The expansive list of injuries includes the late Keisha Atkins, who died from serious complications suffered during an elective late-term abortion at 6 months after being transferred from SWO to UNMH for emergency care.

"Women seeking an abortion in New Mexico from Texas and elsewhere must be warned that abortion centers here are allowed to operate unregulated, are ill-equipped to handle medical emergencies and as a result, one clinic alone sent 50 women and counting to the Emergency Room,” said Elisa Martinez executive director and founder of New Mexico Alliance for Life. "At least one of these women, the late Keisha Atkins died from injuries suffered during an elective, unsafe abortion at 6 months in New Mexico. How many more women will suffer serious injury or death from unsafe and unregulated abortions in New Mexico?"

UNMH "Family Planning" Abortionists Knowingly Refer Women to Unsafe SWO

  • In 2015 UNM Hospital Family Planning Department heads were caught sending University of New Mexico Medical School residents to train at the unsafe SWO clinic before New Mexico Alliance for Life exposed an illegal contract between both parties, as well as the illicit exchange of aborted baby body parts resulting in two criminal referrals.

  • As a result of our investigative work and public awareness campaign, UNMH officials halted sending residents to train at SWO AND research using aborted baby parts from the scandal-ridden clinic.

  • Additionally, our partners at Abortion On Trial confirmed through deposition testimony that UNM Hospital abortionists are tasked with receiving SWO's botched abortions. SWO has a long-standing relationship with University of New Mexico Hospital abortionists to refer for their medical emergencies, including the late Keisha Atkins.
