New Mexico Abortionist Quits For the Sake of His "Sanity"

Albuquerque, NM- Project Defending Life has confirmed that abortionist Bruce Ferguson is retiring on December 30th, 2011, and will no longer be performing abortions.  His Albuquerque abortion clinic will also close.  According to his website, he has been performing abortions for 30 years.

In a phone call, Ferguson told an undercover investigator that he was retiring due to his health, his family, and his own "sanity." He stated, "Someone else needs to carry the burden now." Ferguson also mentioned as a reason for his retirement a steady decline in abortion patients each year, which is a trend that is being seen nationally.

Project Defending Life and Operation Rescue have been keeping the public informed about the dangerous conditions at two other Albuquerque abortion clinics. It appears that after receiving this life-saving information women are not flooding Bruce Ferguson's office, but are opting out of abortion altogether.

"Abortion is not good for anyone, not for babies, not for women, and according to Bruce Ferguson, someone who would know, abortion is not good for the doctors performing them," stated Bud Shaver, spokesperson for Project Defending Life.  “We are happy to learn that our efforts to inform women of the dangers of abortion are having an impact and that fewer women are aborting their babies.”  

"As abortionists like Ferguson quit, retire, or are stripped of their licenses, they are not being replaced," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “It sounds like Ferguson has called it quits, but we need to remain vigilant because, with the shortage of abortionists, Ferguson could turn up somewhere else.  Given his apparent emotional state, that would be dangerous for women.”

Project Defending Life is committed to serving the pregnant women of New Mexico and is continuing their effort to expose how abortion destroys all the lives involved in this horrific procedure.

"In 2011 our prayers and efforts to end abortion in New Mexico are becoming a reality. This is great news for the women and pre-born children of New Mexico. Abortion bears many consequences and one less 'doctor' to provide them is a benefit to all women," stated Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, Director of Project Defending Life. "In fact, this is the second abortionist this month to retire and close down in the state of New Mexico."

Earlier this month, Santa Fe abortionist Lucia Cies retired.  The closure of her abortion clinic made Santa Fe an abortion-free community.

  1. It is sad that most of the doctors who lack the morality and murder babies are of "low quality". my brother, a well-respected physician told me a disturbing "joke"... What to you call the student who graduates LAST in their medical school class??? DOCTOR...Don't forget it!!! AND, these are the "doctors" that often perform abortions! It is ALL about the money! The other "crime" is that medical schools NO LONGER get rid of the "unacceptable" students for financial reasons! They do whatever it takes (including passing on unacceptable students) because there is too much money to be made in the teaching hospitals! (These hospitals CHARGE the SAME amount as they do for REAL doctors!) So, to drop-out students is to lose a tremendous amount of money because 3rd-year students put in about 100 hrs/wk in the hospital! (I realize that the law limits it to 80 hours, BUT!) So, remember my brother's joke when picking a doctor!!! And, remember this when you are counseling someone NOT to get an abortion!
