Southwestern Women's Options (Albuquerque, NM)Information has surfaced that a New Mexico family suffered a double tragedy at the hands of abortionists.

Keisha Atkins had an abortion in 2017 at Southwestern Women's Options, an Albuquerque abortuary owned by abortionist Curtis Boyd (see related stories). Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico reminds OneNewsNow that Atkins was rushed to a hospital with a severe infection after aborting her baby.

"We were obviously devastated to learn that she had died during about a 24-week abortion that went wrong," Shaver laments, "and she suffered greatly, as did her baby obviously."

The family has since filed suit because of the circumstances surrounding the abortion and her death. But Shaver explains that court documents also show that Keisha's sister, Nicole Atkins, had a 24-week abortion in 2010 at the same clinic, where abortions are done through the ninth month of pregnancy.

"That abortion was botched," Shaver adds. "Apparently Shelley Sella, the abortionist who performed the procedure, had lacerated her cervix, and she inevitably ended up having to have a hysterectomy." Consequently, Nicole will never be able to bear children.

The Atkins family has been devastated twice – and whether the clinic and its abortionists are held accountable will be determined in court. But Shaver says abortion doesn't just mean the demise of a baby: in this family, it meant the death of one daughter and permanent injury to a second.
