Does UNM Health Sciences Center & Curtis Boyd Think They're Above the Law? Why are NM taxpayers footing the coverup?
Congressional Hearing Tomorrow
Plus: What is UNMHSC's Dr. Paul Roth Hiding?
The University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, (UNMHSC) and Southwestern Women's Options late-term clinic are under congressional investigation for potential violations of the law in regards to harvesting of aborted infant organs and 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," the public deserves to know what is going on and who is involved.
"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.
THIS WEDNESDAY: The committee has announced its second hearing; on the pricing of fetal tissue to be held this Wednesday, April 20 at 12 noon MST, the live stream can be viewed here.
The Cover Up
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 Journal on 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."
Why is UNMHSC, a state funded entity whose employees are paid by taxpayers, not cooperating with NMAFL's state open records requests? Why is our state funded university refusing to be open with the congressional committee? Do they think they are above the law?
It is an embarrassment that New Mexico taxpayers are forced to fly state employees to Washington D.C. to be deposed by Congress, and on top of that, pay thousands of dollars in legal costs because they refuse to cooperate, and are hiding documents on the aborted baby harvesting and collaboration with late-term abortionist Boyd.
Is There A Pattern?
This is not the first time UNMHSC top administrators have attempted to suppress information. In fact UNMHSC's attorney, Scott Sauder, by the "imprimatur" of UNMHSC head Paul Roth, caused UNM to be fined $100,000, (paid out by taxpayers) for "improperly and willfully" intimidating a witness.

UNMHSC has yet another lawsuit for impropriety, in violating a student's first amendment rights who happened to express his opinion against abortion. As reported by the Albuquerque Journal, UNM medical student, Paul Hunt was threatened with expulsion, forced to edit and re-edit his personal Facebook account to the approval of UNMHSC officials. Hunt was reported to none other than pro-abortion advocate, UNM OB-GYN department chair, Eve Espey. Read more here.
How many hundreds of thousands of dollars will taxpayers have to pay out for UNMHSC officials' obstinance and problems with compliance with the law?
