A New Mexico abortionist facing possible disciplinary action used to work with the infamous late-term Kansas abortionist George Tiller.

The abortionist is Shelley Sella who, according to Operation Rescue's Cheryl Sullenger, ignored medical history on a patient who, in her 35th week of pregnancy, was seeking a late-term abortion in Albuquerque.

Sullenger, Cheryl"She continued a late-term abortion in a clinic setting [instead of a hospital setting]," Sullenger tells OneNewsNow. "She overused uterine contracting medications -- and because of that the woman's uterus ruptured and she had to be rushed to the hospital with a life-threatening emergency."

The baby, who was just a few weeks away from what would be considered full-term, could have survived outside the womb. The George Tiller connection? Sullenger explains:

"Sella used to work for George Tiller [in Wichita], and during her time there we were able to discover that she was actually doing illegal abortions because the referrals for the late-term abortions were done improperly by another abortionist, Ann Neuhaus, whose license has been revoked because of one of our complaints against her."

Sella surrendered her medical license in Kansas before that state's medical board could take action. In New Mexico, the medical board has filed a Notice of Contemplated Action alleging gross negligence. A two-day hearing is set for later this month.

According to Operation Rescue, Sella also works as an abortionist for Planned Parenthood in California.
