ALBUQUERQUE, NM, February 7, 2013, (Operation Rescue) — Operation Rescue has received word that even as the New Mexico Medical Board was preparing to dismiss a negligence case against late-term abortionist Shelley Sella this morning, eyewitnesses observed an ambulance arrive at Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque to transfer yet another of Sella’s patients to the hospital.

“This morning’s apparent medical emergency only validates not only our belief that Sella’s disciplinary case was wrongly decided, but also our concerns that Sella’s substandard abortion practices are placing women in grave risk,” said Cheryl Sullenger, senior policy adviser for Operation Rescue.

“We can only wonder how many women have to be hospitalized before authorities act to protect the public from Sella’s shoddy practices," she said. "Since it refuses to protect the public, there needs to be a complete and immediate overhaul of the New Mexico Medical Board.”

This is a breaking story and Operation Rescue continues to work with Project Defending Life to obtain additional information about the incident that took place around 9:30 am.
