Multiple Federal Investigations Called For: Planned Parenthood and StemExpress Violating Women's Rights and Profiteering Scheme
Are UNM and Curtis Boyd's Southwestern Women's Options Next?
Documents released yesterday by the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives reveal a profiteering scheme between Planned Parenthood abortion clinics and StemExpress to harvest aborted infant body parts and organs, while violating women's privacy rights in the process. The Select Panel is now calling on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to investigate Planned Parenthood abortion clinics for potential violations of federal privacy law and other violations.
"This betrayal of a young woman's trust should disgust us all. It takes financial advantage, obtains consent through coercion, and deceives the woman, all in violation of federal privacy laws," said Rep. Marsha Blackburn, Select Panel chair.
What You Need to Know
As reported by the Washington Times: Documents released by the Select Panel show the day before abortions were scheduled to take place,StemExpress was notified by fax by the clinics and granted medical files on individual patients. Medical staff at the clinics later directed StemExpressemployees to "good candidates" for fetal tissue procurement. StemExpressemployees also appeared to be negotiating the sale of fetal tissue with the abortion clinics "before they obtained informed consent to procure the fetal tissue," Ms. Blackburn said.

Are UNM and Southwestern Women's Options Late-Term Abortion Business Next?
Paul Roth, UNMHSC head
The University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, (UNMHSC) and Curtis Boyd's Southwestern Women's Options late-term business are also under congressional investigation by the Select Panel for potential violations of the law. Could this be why UNM HSC administrators and late-term abortionist/UNM professor Curtis Boyd are hiding documents from the Select Panel on Infant Lives? UNM HSC has been hiding PUBLIC documents for inspection since last year, in fact NMAFL has filed a lawsuit against UNM, in order to obtain information that should be public record on UNM HSC's harvesting of aborted infant body parts, and other abortion practices. Despite protestations from UNMHSC head, Paul Roth, seeking the "relevance" to the congressional committee's "request for personally identifiable information," answers may be forthcoming. "When questions are raised about the possibility that a federal statute has been violated, Congress has a duty to the taxpayers to find the facts and get to the bottom of what is actually going on," said committee Chairman, Congressman Marsha Blackburn.
The Cover Up
Eve Espey, UNM OB-GYN Dept. Chair
NMAFL has found alarming policies and practices employed by both Southwestern Women's Options and UNMHSC--not only from their aborted baby body parts harvesting, but also their dangerous late-term abortion practices.
UNM's OB-GYN Department Chair, Dr. Eve Espey has developed a shocking policy at UNM Hospital for "live-birth" infants who survive induced abortion, as discovered by NMAFL, which spurred legislation introduced this year. The question remains to date, how are newborns who survive an abortion treated and cared for by abortionists like Espey or Boyd? For nearly a year NMAFL has been asking a series of questions regarding the abortion practices and policies at UNMHSC including their collaboration with Curtis Boyd and experimentation using aborted infant eyes, brains, lungs, hearts, etc. that are transported from Boyd's clinic by UNMHSC staff. When NMAFL's investigative findings were published by the Albuquerque Journalon December 20, 2015, even then, UNMHSC officials were not forthright with the public stating, "they had no documents to show how much fetal tissue is sent from Boyd's clinic to UNM researchers, nor how often."
