An Albuquerque doctor who performed a life-threatening late-term abortion could lose her license. It's not because the procedure is illegal, but because of how and where it was done.

A local pro-life group brought a complaint forward and now the New Mexico Medical Board is considering action against the doctor. The board says it's not getting into the controversy of this actual procedure but whether this clinic met the standard of care.

"The doctor's concerned we have a uterine rupture during a late-term abortion procedure," a 911 tape plays out on YouTube.

The 911 call was made from the Southwestern Women's Options Clinic near Lomas and Broadway in May 2011.
