Anti-abortion protesters were violently attacked outside a late-term abortion mill in Albuquerque, New Mexico, leaving one man, Bud Shaver, a former Operation Rescue intern, with a deep gash in his head. As you see in the video, the attacker used a set of keys as a weapon. There was clear intent to do some major damage by the attacker.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., July 6, 2011 – A woman who claimed to be a supporter of abortion violently attacked peaceful pro-life protesters yesterday outside Southwestern Women’s Options, a late-term abortion clinic in Albuquerque, New Mexico, leaving one protester bleeding.
The woman told the pro-lifers that she had once had an abortion. She then began to punch and kick Bud Shaver, a former Operation Rescue intern, and a woman named Chris. She used keys as a weapon, inflicting a gash on Shaver’s head that paramedics said required stitches.
Shaver, who works with Project Defend Life, began videotaping after the attack began; his footage shows pro-lifers trying to defend themselves from a flurry of punches and kicks. After the attack, the woman walked into the abortion clinic but left a few moments later, driving away before police could respond to Shaver’s 911 call for help.
Shaver told Operation Rescue that the woman was a passerby that stopped, but she did not appear to be a patient of the clinic.
Police and paramedics eventually responded, but the perpetrator was not apprehended. Her description and license plate number were reported to the officers as well as the 911 dispatcher.
“The lax way in which the police are handling acts of violence against pro-lifer who are peacefully exercising their Constitutional Rights and offering practical help to need women is shocking,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “It sends the wrong message that violence on the part of abortion supporters is acceptable. We pray that this troubled woman is brought to justice and gets the help she needs with her anger and grief issues.”
The attack occurred just days after Operation Rescue released a 911 recording made from another abortion clinic in Albuquerque, UNM Center for Reproductive Health, where a woman could clearly be heard struggling for life.
Operation Rescue says it has also obtained a series of 911 emergency recordings made from Southwestern Women’s Options where the violent attack took place that clearly indicate life-threatening abortion complications that required emergency hospitalization. OR plans to release the first of these recordings later this week.
The pro-life group asked the public to help protect peaceful pro-life activists by calling the Albuquerque Chief of Police and demanding the arrest of the woman who attacked Shaver and his associates.

This is unacceptable on every level, but it shows the mindset of the extreme left in this country. Those in favor of killing babies at will are losing the battle, as surveys show Americans are becoming pro-life, especially younger Americans. America is coming to see the immorality of abortion on demand.
Thanks to dedicated men and women America is also learning just how dangerous abortions can be for the mother too. We are learning of many horrors that for years have been covered up.
So what’s a radical leftist to do? Get violent, of course. Just like the union thugs have had violent protests every time there is an attempt at reform, we fully expect we’ll see more violence from the pro-abortion zealots. After all, most have already committed an incredibly violent act on their own child. Why would they hesitate to attack someone unknown to them.
I’d like to ask our readers to put pressure on Albuquerque’s Police Chief Ray Schultz. Call the phone number above. Hell, shut the phone lines down! Demand they track this violent woman down before she attacks someone else. It’s obvious she is unstable and most definitely a threat to herself, and others. She needs help, and her actions demand justice.
I also ask that readers contact Governor Susana Martinez’s office and ask that this matter be looked into. The phone number is (505) 476-2200, or you can use the contact form here.
We as Americans cannot allow things like this to stand. The attack was bad enough, but the inactivity by the police is beyond the pale. They have the attack on camera, with the attacker clearly visible, and it seems they even have the attacker’s license plate number. This is the sort of thing a good police department could have taken care of within hours of the attack.
Abortion is a disgusting ritual that impassions people on both sides of the debate. That’s a good thing, and the American way. Violently attacking those who disagree, is not.
