New Mexico Abortion Center Sets 'Starting Goal' of 75 Terminations a Week


A soon-to-open abortion facility in New Mexico has set itself a “starting goal” of performing 75 abortions every week, according to Axios.

Whole Woman’s Health, an organization that closed all of its Texas locations following the Dobbs v. Jackson ruling last year, will open its new location in Albuquerque.


Axios reported:

Whole Woman’s Health of New Mexico will provide first- and second-trimester in-clinic abortion procedures up to 18 weeks of gestational age and has plans to expand care up to 24 weeks in the near future. The clinic also provides medication abortion care up to 11 weeks. The starting goal is to serve 75 patients a week.

The fully bilingual clinic staff aims to create an environment that helps patients shed personal and cultural shame and stigma around abortion care. Whole Woman’s Health chose Albuquerque because it’s in a “safe state” and is easy to fly into.

The decision was criticized by Texas Right to Life, whose reporter Samantha Farnsworth pointed to strong economic incentives involved:

If Whole Woman’s Health truly cared about being compassionate toward women, the company would not lie by telling them that abortion is good and necessary. They would help women succeed while having their babies and succeed as parents or work through an adoption plan, not setting a dead baby goal. But it all makes sense when you look at the numbers — the 75-abortion quota will make the company at least $3 million in a year, just at this one of their six locations.

Abortion harms women and ends the lives of children. Whole Woman’s Health knows this, but they also know that there is a lot of money to be made by lying to women and the masses about what abortion really is.


Meanwhile, LifeSiteNews pointed out abortion quotas are not a new phenomenon, with managers at Planned Parenthood previously rewarding workers for meeting a certain number of terminations within a specific time frame.

“Every center had a goal for how many abortions were done,” said Sue Thayer, a former Planned Parenthood manager. “And centers that didn’t do abortions like mine that were family planning clinics had a goal for the number of abortion referrals.”

“And it was on this big grid, and if we hit our goal, our line was green,” she continued. “If we were five percent under, it was yellow. If we were 10 percent under, it was red. That’s when we needed to have a corrective action plan – why we didn’t hit the goal, what we’re gonna do differently next time.”

As a largely Democratic state, New Mexico has some of the laxest abortion restrictions in the Southwest, with the procedure legal throughout an entire pregnancy. Among the most fervent pro-abortion figures is the state’s Democratic Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, who last year funneled $10 million of state funds to construct a taxpayer-funded abortion facility.


Last June, Grisham also signed an executive order prohibiting state agencies from assisting in the prosecution of abortionists in other states as long as the abortionist did not violate any of New Mexico’s own laws.
