Pro-lifers urge investigation after woman's death

Keisha Atkins, 24, was six months pregnant when she sought an abortion last year in New Mexico at an Albuquerque abortion clinic, Southwestern Women's Options.

On the last day of a four-day procedure, pro-lifers allege, an ambulance was called for Atkins but cancelled, and 12 hours passed before she was transported to a hospital, where she died.

Shaver

Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico says pro-life activists investigated the death, learning from the autopsy report that a late-term abortion had gone wrong.

"However," Shaver says, "the autopsy itself said that she had died from a pulmonary thromboembolism, so a blood clot in the lung."

Tara and Bud Shaver filed a complaint with the medical board which responded in a letter that it intends to investigate Atkins' death.

"Which is huge," the pro-life activist observes, "because often times we feel like, here in New Mexico, the abortion industry has so much cover from so many different angles."

Pro-lifers are hopeful an investigation will lead to revoking the license of abortionist Curtis Boyd, 81, and his clinic will be closed for good.
