The New Mexico Medical Board has dismissed a complaint against
late-term abortionist Shelley Sella. But that has motivated
pro-lifers to take their case to the governor's office.
Sella had been accused of botching a late-term abortion on a New
York woman who traveled to Southwestern Women's Options in
Albuquerque, as it is one of a few clinics nationwide that does the
potentially dangerous procedure. She wanted to abort the child
after she found out it had severe brain abnormalities.
Cheryl Sullenger of Operation
Rescue, the organization that filed the complaint of gross
negligence in the abortion of a nearly nine-month-old unborn baby,
is disappointed. She tells OneNewsNow ample evidence was provided,
so she sees this decision as an indicator of the liberal attitude
toward abortion in The Land of Enchantment.
"The political corruption that is protecting these heinous
late-term abortions, third-trimester abortions, has got to be
purged from the state of New Mexico," Sullenger insists.
Ironically, just as the board released its decision Thursday, an
ambulance took a woman from the same clinic for emergency treatment
at a hospital.
"We're calling on the governor of New Mexico, Susana Martinez,
who is supposedly a pro-life Republican, to clean house in New
Mexico in order to protect women, because ambulances, we know, are
going to keep rolling over there to Southwestern Women's Options
where Shelley Sella works," the pro-lifer laments. "[She is] only
going to continue injuring women."
Sullenger says an ambulance has been called to the abortuary an
average of once every ten weeks, which she believes "validates our
concerns about danger at the clinic."
