This is the stuff that true crime documentaries are made of. It’s filled with conspiracy, fraud, and coverup; but the crimes committed are by licensed medical professionals and entities who have taken, yet forsaken, their oath to uphold standards of care and ethical practices. And the tragedy? The death of a young woman, Keisha Atkins, and her six-month preborn daughter.

“Mom, I am going to die,” recalled Tina Adkins, Keisha’s mom, “and I said, ‘Don’t talk like that, you’re going to be fine.”’

They were anxiously waiting for emergency intervention from the University of New Mexico Hospital (UNMH) where Keisha had been transported to by ambulance for exhibiting abnormal symptoms from her incomplete three-day abortion procedure at Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO), an out-patient facility that provides abortions up to 34-weeks gestation. More than five hours later, on February 3rd, Keisha was taken to the operating room to complete the abortion procedure.

One hour and forty-one minutes later, Keisha Atkins heart stopped beating. There was no bringing her back to life. On a clear, dark, and cold morning, Keisha was declared dead at

12:10 a.m. on February 4, 2017. Another tragic victim of the abortion war.

In the span of three days, Tina Atkins, lost her “beautiful, exuberant [23 year-old daughter]” and her granddaughter, Mavis.

 The injustice did not go unnoticed. In a whirl-wind of events, attorney at law, Michael Seibel, found himself swept up in the case that is now known as Atkins v Curtis W Boyd MD PC et al.

In September 2018, Seibel filed a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of Keisha Adkins.

The case puts forth gross negligence in the care provided to Keisha Atkins.  

Only after exhibiting septic-like symptoms for 9 hours at SWO, did Keisha finally get to healthcare facility, in this case a hospital, that could diagnose and properly treat sepsis, unlike the late-term abortion facility. According to two UNMH doctors who provided preliminary care for Keisha, an ICU Intensivist and a diagnostic radiology specialist, said that she was septic and needed to be seen immediately.

However, upon being admitted to UNMH, Keisha still waited to receive appropriate and timely intervention. Initially, the overseeing OBGYN wanted to wait until the next day (almost 12 hours from admittance) to do any surgical intervention but after seeing Keisha become more agitated decided to stop inducement and go forward with a dilation and extraction procedure. Both approaches to care are arguably not in the best interest of any patient in such a condition. At this time, Keisha had been in labor for 60 hours, her six-month preborn daughter dead the entire time.

The case, unfortunately, does not end there. After Keisha’s body autopsy was done, the OMI indicated her cause of death was due to a pregnancy-related pulmonary embolism – a blood clot in the lungs and the death was listed as “natural.” Many of the doctors who provided care for Keisha were shocked as there was no pulmonary embolism and what they had seen was a septic abortion.  In other words, an abortion gone wrong.

Internal emails show there may have been a cover-up for the real reason behind the death of the young and healthy Keisha Atkins. As this case moves forward, Seibel and the Atkins family hope that answers will be provided.

 But there is a real concern that justice will not prevail if Seibel and his team cannot obtain proper funding. At this time, Seibel has invested all of his personal and business income in the amount of $50,000 to ensure this case gets a fair trial and that these doctors are  held accountable. Unfortunately, there has not been enough money. In order to see this case go before the jury, Seibel and his team need at least another $50,000.

 Seibel isn’t looking for any financial compensation for himself or his legal partner, Justin Hall, ESQ. Seibel employs several paralegals, whom he has had to lay-off due to insufficient income. $15,000 will go to rehiring some of these paralegals back who have been instrumental to building this case.


He also has court fees that include depositions. Depositions allow either side to gain sworn-evidence through use of testimony for those involved in a lawsuit. For Atkins v Curtis W Boyd MD PC et al, $20,000 is needed to obtain sworn-testimony from those who negligently oversaw the care of Keisha Adkins, this includes the Doctors who work at Southwestern Women’s Options, University of New Mexico Hospital and the Office of Medical Investigator.

 The remaining $15,000 will go towards interviewing expert witnesses, specifically an OB/GYN, Emergency Room doctor, and a pathologist.

Depositions are reimbursable. If the Atkins Family is awarded justice and wins the lawsuit, the money will go towards a pro-life, not-for-profit 501C3 who helps abortion-vulnerable or abortion-minded women with legal aid.

 If we go beyond our goal of $50,000 the money will go towards the cost of more depositions. At this time, we are prioritizing who gives testimony. However, the more testimony, evidence, and support we get increases our chances of winning.  We are going head to head with multi-million dollar entities and they are known for winning.

 Your financial support is critical. Will you help us give the Atkins family the justice they deserve? Will you help us shut-down a notorious late-term abortion facility that claims thousands of lives every year?
