surgical instruments 1Questions are being raised about a cause of death ruling for a woman who died from a late-term abortion in New Mexico.

In 2017, Keisha Atkins had a late-term abortion at Southwestern Women's Options and was rushed to the University of New Mexico hospital for emergency treatment.

Elisa Martinez of New Mexico Alliance for Life, picking up the story, says doctors treated Atkins for complications from a septic abortion.

Atkins died from the infection, and three days later the Office of Medical Investigator performed an autopsy and ruled the death natural due to the pregnancy, not the abortion.

The physicians who treated her in the emergency room were reportedly shocked at the outcome.

Martinez tells OneNewsNow the ruling shields the abortionist, Curtis Boyd, from medical liability, and pro-lifers in the state suspect what is going on.

"The University of New Mexico is the home of the Office of Medical Investigator," Martinez explains, "and we know that the University of New Mexico has a long-standing relationship with this abortion clinic in a partnership and a collaboration to receive a free supply of aborted infant body parts."

A congressional investigation called for criminal prosecution but that never happened.

Martinez says the family of Atkins has hired an attorney and he's investigating the circumstances, including the autopsy report.
