Operation Rescue staff

ALBUQUERQUE, November 29, 2012, (Operation Rescue) — The New Mexico Medical Board has decided to close the disciplinary hearing of late-term abortionist Shelley Sella, who is accused of gross negligence for her actions during a botched 35 week abortion.

New Mexico has open meeting laws to insure public access to such proceedings. Sella petitioned to close the hearing.

“Women come to Albuquerque from all over the US seeking late-term abortions that are illegal elsewhere only to be placed in grave danger by the negligent incompetence of Shelley Sella,” said Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue.

“Full term abortions are barbaric and dangerous acts that have no place in a civilized society. When you add in an abortionist that carelessly ignores serious health risk factors, you have a public health disaster,” she added. “The New Mexico Medical Board is correct to institute disciplinary proceedings against Sella and we call on the Board to revoke Sella’s medical license in the interest of public safety. This closed-door hearing is worrisome and shuts the public out of a proceeding. That makes the entire process suspect, in our opinion.”
