Former Tiller Abortionists Make Albuquerque the New Late-Term Abortion Capital
March 23, 2010
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., (christiansunite.com) -- Two women who once specialized in post-viability abortions during their employment at George Tiller's now closed abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas, have set up shop in an existing abortion clinic owned and operated by Texas abortionist Curtis Boyd where they are offering lucrative late-term abortions.
"We knew about this arrangement well before the LA Times printed their story on Tuesday, and have been in contact with local pro-life leaders in Albuquerque to offer what assistance we can to their efforts to expose the horrific nature of late-term abortions and pray for those involved," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. "We plan to open a satellite office in Albuquerque that will be directed from our headquarters in Wichita."
One former Tiller abortionist now in Albuquerque is Shelley Sella, a self-proclaimed lesbian from the Oakland, California, area who was once accused by former abortion nurse Tina David of delivering a live baby at 35 weeks gestation, then stabbing the moving baby in the ribcage until he died. Tina David told Operation Rescue about the incident because she said she wanted to clear her conscience. Operation Rescue reported the alleged murder to the police, but David recanted under police questioning after having been in contact with other Tiller employees. She told reporters, "I don't want to get involved." (Listen to the eyewitness account.)
Another former Tiller abortionist now working for Boyd is Susan Robinson, who lists her address on her newly minted New Mexico medical license as the office of a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Fresno, California.
"New Mexico is among the most liberal as far as abortion laws, and has little in the way of requirements to hold abortionists accountable. That is probably why they set up shop there instead of Kansas, Texas, or Nebraska where the laws would make such abortions more difficult or impossible," said Newman.
"Unfortunately, the more liberal the laws, the more the lives and health of women are put at risk because of the lack of standards and accountability. In addition, the later abortions carry with them higher risks to the woman's life and health. Those two factors make Boyd's late-term abortion operation in New Mexico a recipe for disaster."
The owner of the clinic, Curtis Boyd, admits he did illegal abortions before Roe v. Wade and shocked America by confessing to a Dallas television reporter that he believes that abortion is killing. Boyd is a backslidden Baptist minister who now identifies with the apostate Unitarian Universalist "Church".
"We are committed to peaceful and legal activity to bring abortion to an end, not just in Albuquerque, but throughout the nation," said Newman. "As long as abortionists kill babies, we will work to save them."
