Albuquerque, NM -- A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed on behalf of the estate of 23-year-old Keisha Atkins who died during a botched late-term abortion last year. As reported by New Mexico Alliance for Life, Atkins died after being transferred to the University of New Mexico Hospital (UNMH) while experiencing complications from a septic infection during an elective late-term abortion performed by Southwestern Women's Options (SWO) in Albuquerque. Atkins was six months pregnant.

"Keisha Atkins' medical treatment was a series of negligence and malpractice which ultimately led to her untimely death-these actions were compounded by the fact that she was instructed to not seek emergency room care by Southwestern doctors," said Atkins' attorney Michael Seibel. "We also have reason to believe that these parties conspired with UNM's Medical Investigator to conceal the cause of death from the abortion in order to protect each other's interests and long-standing relationships."

In what has become one of the biggest stories involving the reckless and irresponsible practices of the abortion industry, New Mexico Alliance for Life (NMAFL) has worked diligently to expose the malpractice that cost a healthy 23 year-old woman her life.

"What kind of clinic instructs patients not to contact the hospital for an emergency, but rather to call an answering service in the middle of a life-threatening septic abortion?" asked Elisa Martinez, spokesperson for the Atkins estate. "This is not medicine, this is a reckless public health crisis driven by abortionist Curtis Boyd, a co-founder of the National Abortion Federation who puts his bottom line and ideology before his patients."

UNM, SWO CIVIL CONSPIRACY: COVER-UP KEISHA'S CAUSE OF DEATH

"We have uncovered numerous scandals surrounding UNM's ongoing collaboration with Southwestern Women's Options, from their now defunct resident training at the clinic, to aborted baby parts harvesting and other issues," said Elisa Martinez. "The cover-up of Keisha's death is a civil conspiracy and yet another scandal that must be uncovered, how many other deaths and injuries by Southwestern Women's Options have been concealed?"

As previously reported in emails obtained by Atkins' attorneys, UNMH doctors Trenton Wray MD and Gary Hatch, who treated Atkins, raised serious concerns about the accuracy of the autopsy report by Dr. Lauren Dvorscak. Dvorscak's report attributed Atkins' death to natural causes due to pregnancy, rather than the botched abortion.

Atkins' estate also charges that SWO did not fully disclose risks and potential complications of the late-term abortion. According to an American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology study, late-term abortions carry a 91 times greater risk of death than first trimester abortions.
