Curtis Boyd M.D. is nationally known for developing abortion procedures and standards of care. He is also recognized for his expertise in pain management and minimizing surgery risk. Furthermore, Dr. Boyd was involved in establishing the National Abortion Federation (NAF) and is a founding member of the Federation’s Board of Directors. NAF serves as a forum for abortion providers and others committed to providing quality abortion services so that they remain accessible to all women.
Glenna Halvorson-Boyd Ph.D, Dr. Boyd’s wife, has served on National Abortion Federation’s Board of directors and as NAF’s President for two years (1984-1986). She is an accomplished counselor, trainer and consultant with a national reputation for her training of professionals in this field. Dr. Halvorson-Boyd has a Ph.D. in Human and Organizational Development.
Together, they are personally and professionally committed to freedom of choice on a local, state, national and international level. In 1972, Santa Fe, NM passed law so the doctors could open their first abortion practice. Since then, the Drs. Boyd have developed standards that serve as benchmarks for other abortion facilities throughout the country.
To ensure high standards of quality care, Dr. Boyd and Co-Director Glenna Halvorson-Boyd, Ph.D., oversee the professional staff at both Southwestern Women’s Options and Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center. The physicians are all experienced specialists in abortion procedures early in pregnancy through later in pregnancy. Similarly, our staff provides an additional level of training and experience. They are registered nurses, and licensed vocational nurses, medical assistants, trained counselors and administrative personnel.
Our degreed counselors at Southwestern Women’s assist and support you before, during, and after your abortion. Their specific role is to make your experience here as positive as possible. Just as important, our professional support staff is highly experienced. In other words, you’ll be in competent, caring hands when you come to our facilities.

With a staff of both medical and counseling professionals, there is a strong emphasis on in-service training and cross training to provide a coordinated, team approach to full healthcare.
I am a Catholic and I am not happy about the situation, but God gave us the ability to think and for us to used our judgement, and especially to be our own person and I feel that I did this to help out the child and me. I can barely take care of myself and I don’t want to struggle after with a kid. I need to accomplish my goals and do what I need to get done before I have to be altering that. Trust me, don’t ever regret something because you wanted it at some point.
I am 36 with two teenagers. There is no way with my situation that I could start all over again. Thank you to the wonderful staff. This was a comfortable environment and I appreciate everything they did to make a horrible situation as comfortable as possible.
I had an apt in the middle of the day so I had to leave work early in which I hate doing because i need all the money I can get… On the hand out I was given they said it would take between 2 and 4 hours. I was in and out in under an hour. The staff was really friendly and welcoming. If I had to go there again I would. 10 stars from me they deserve it.
I am 22 years old and have 2 kids. One is almost 4 years old and recently diagnosed with autism, and a 5 month old. They are my world and I am a single parent in college. I will make it for me and my kids. This baby will always be a part of my life. I have always been pro-choice and actually going through this empowers me in what it means to be a woman.
More Than One Abortion
This has been my 2nd termination in 4 months. I struggle daily within my own mind, but I know the decision I made was the right one. No matter how hard it was. Be safe ladies and know that there is support out there. Good luck in life and know that in your heart, no matter how hard it may have been, you made the right decision.
“Abortion is not bad”
I’m only 17 years old, I’ve never had kids, or been pregnant, but I can honestly say this decision was a hard one. Before now, I never would have even considered abortion. I love this clinic and the people in it. Everyone here was so kind. I do feel bad, but I believe this was the right thing to do. I’d just like to say that no one’s a bad person for doing this. If you’re not ready, you’re not ready. Abortion is NOT bad.
Dr. Robinson, who provides care in our Albuquerque clinic, talks about her work
“If you are secretive, you are sort of colluding in the stigma of abortion,” Robinson said. “Now when people ask what I do, I say, ‘My specialty is abortion care, and I love my job!’ ”
