Abortionist Admits Killing Babies Up to Birth: “There’s No Set Limit” on When I’ll Do an Abortion

A new video of late-term abortionist Curtis Boyd shows him admitting to aborting unborn babies up to birth at his New Mexico abortion facility.

Dated Oct. 24, 2019, the video reportedly is from a deposition taken as part of a wrongful death lawsuit filed against Boyd and his abortion facility, Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque. They are accused of medical malpractice in the death of 23-year-old Keisha Marie Atkins.

The Facebook page Abortion on Trial posted the video Tuesday to draw attention to the case and Boyd’s disturbing record.

In the video, Boyd admitted that his abortion facility does third-trimester abortions on viable unborn babies. When asked how late in the gestational age he is willing to do abortions, Boyd replied, “There’s no set period.”

He tried to justify his life-destroying work as compassionate, saying, “I don’t want to say no to someone who’s in a desperate situation.”

At one point, Boyd also brought up religion to defend his abortion work.

“I come from a religious background,” he said. “I’m an ordained minister, and I believe in compassion and service above self. So that’s my calling. And I do abortion services. I no longer do primary care.”

The 80-year-old abortionist also admitted to doing at least 100,000 abortions in his lifetime, according to Abortion on Trial.

Previously, Boyd admitted that he began doing abortions more than 50 years ago before they were legal. He said he was raised in a Christian home and became an ordained Baptist minister before he began doing abortions.

“Am I killing? Yes, I am. I know that,” he openly acknowledged in 2009 to the Texas news station KVUE.

And he apparently kills unborn babies for any reason up to birth. An undercover investigation in 2019 found that the Albuquerque abortion facility was willing to abort healthy unborn babies with healthy mothers at 32 weeks of pregnancy, far past the point of viability. Unborn babies are viable around 22-23 weeks.

Though Boyd claims to feel compassion for women in crisis, pro-lifers have uncovered evidence of dozens of botched abortions at his abortion facility. Since 2008, members of Abortion Free New Mexico, Operation Rescue and local pro-life activists have documented 20 abortion related injuries, including at least one confirmed woman’s death.

It is unclear when Atkins’ wrongful death lawsuit may go to trial. Atkins died in 2017 while experiencing complications from a septic infection after an elective late-term abortion, according to the New Mexico Alliance for Life. In the lawsuit, the University of New Mexico Hospital and the abortion facility are accused of medical malpractice, wrongful death and civil conspiracy. The abortion facility also is accused of violating the New Mexico Unfair Trade Practices Act by telling Atkins not to go to the emergency room but to contact the abortion facility if she experienced a medical emergency.

Boyd also faced a federal investigation in 2017 for allegedly selling aborted baby body parts and violating informed consent laws.
