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."

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), Tom Udall (D-N.M.), Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), Michael F.

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Tom Udall, ranking member on the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies, was named to the conference committee that will finalize the fiscal year 2019 Interior & Environment Appropriations bill, which funds the Department of the Interior (DOI), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), U.S. Forest Service, and various other agencies.
 
The conference committee includes leaders of four House and Senate Appropriations Subcommittees and held a key meeting today as it works to reconcile the differences between the two versions of the Interior & Environment funding bill that have passed the House and the Senate. Udall helped author the bill that passed the Senate, the first of its kind to pass the Senate and go to conference since 2009.
