1. The family of Keisha Atkins has earned some level of justice for their daughter's untimely death, as Southwestern Women's Options (SWO) — the abortion facility responsible for her death — has settled with her estate to the sum of $900,000, according to the ABQ Journal. The University of New Mexico (UNM) also settled in the suit, paying $365,000 of the total amount awarded — $1.26 million. Were you aware that more than 400 women have died from "safe and legal" abortions since 1973? Source: https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/70/ss/ss7009a1.htm#T15_down

2. In 2017, Atkins underwent a late-term abortion at 24 weeks pregnant. She was referred to SWO in Albuquerque, New Mexico, by UNM. Though Medicaid does not cover elective abortions, abortionist Dr. Shannon Carr testified under oath that she marked the abortion as necessary for Atkins' mental, physical, emotional, and familial health based on "sheer speculation," allowing the abortion to be covered. Do you think it is unethical for a "medical expert" (i.e. abortionist) to claim an abortion is for medically justifiable reasons based solely on speculation?

3. Yet despite these claims from Carr, Atkins was healthy prior to her abortion, and Carr only spoke with Atkins for roughly 20 minutes. Carr admitted that she assumed, due to Atkins' status as a young, single mother, not having an abortion would cause Atkins to suffer from depression, anxiety, and economic instability. Do you think the abortionist should be charged with falsifying records because she "assumed" the young mother's abortion was "medically necessary" when it very well may not have been?

4. Late-term abortions typically take multiple days to complete. According to documents, Atkins was drugged repeatedly by SWO staff with fentanyl and Versed (midazolam), both of which are known to cause "serious breathing problems." They also gave Atkins oxycodone and two doses of Mifeprex (the abortion pill) as part of an experiment. Atkins was drugged again each time she returned to the facility over the course of four days. After SWO administered the drugs, they sent her back to her hotel room without any medical supervision. Do you think it is irresponsible for an abortion clinic to send a woman - who might very well suffer complications - away without any medical supervision, in case complications do arise?

5. On the final day, February 3, Atkins returned to the abortion facility and went into respiratory distress. She was taken to the hospital, where she died, and her death was originally ruled as "natural" from pregnancy. Doctors at the hospital did not all agree with this ruling, as it was clear Atkins died from sepsis caused by her abortion. The lawsuit, filed by Atkins' mother Tina, claimed SWO and UNM did not provide proper care to Atkins, failing to diagnosis sepsis two days into the abortion procedure or give her the treatment that would have saved her life. Despite settling, SWO and its abortionists still deny any wrongdoing. Does it surprise you that the abortion clinic would deny any wrongdoing, despite the fact that Atkins was under their "medical care" when she died from medical complications during the procedure?
