Albuquerque abortionist let off the hook

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.

Sullenger, CherylCheryl 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."
