New Mexico abortion facility security guard loses job after harassing pro-life women

According to pro-life organization Abortion on Trial, a security guard has been removed from his position at a New Mexico abortion facility owned by Franz Theard, an abortionist currently under investigation for abandoning a patient who suffered two concurrent botched abortions under his care.

Bertram Wiles, employed by Securitas Security Services USA Inc. as a security guard, was placed at Women’s Reproductive Clinic in New Mexico. In video which Wiles posted himself (since apparently removed), he was seen harassing pro-life women across from the abortion business. Though it appeared portions of the video used voiceovers, other portions appeared to show him directly sexually harassing women. He is also accused of following one woman to her job and leaving his card on her car. Wiles has since scrubbed his social media accounts, which included multiple similar videos that included sexual remarks directed toward young women, racial slurs towards Latina women, and vulgar language directed at pro-lifers.

Wiles claimed that Abortion on Trial edited his social media videos and also claimed the woman he followed wanted to be followed. However, a previous arrest record discovered by Abortion on Trial shows this is not the first time Wiles has behaved in this manner.


Abortion on Trial wrote in a Facebook post, “It appears improper sexual behavior is not new for Bert, who has just deleted his social media accounts and has an arrest record from 2010 for ‘improper photo/visual record to arouse/gratify.”

Abortion on Trial attorneys sent a letter to Securitas requesting that Wiles be removed from his position for the safety of the pro-life female sidewalk counselors as well as women entering the abortion facility. The letter requested that action be taken to remove him within 10 days.

On November 7, 2020, Abortion on Trial announced that Wiles had been removed from his position at the abortion facility by Securitas.
