UNM Health Sciences Center's Paul Roth: Playing Games and Wasting Your Taxpayer Dollars
The Select Panel on Infant Lives released an Interim Report today, disclosing more evidence that UNM Health Sciences Center (UNM HSC) under Paul Roth have been playing games and hiding information, that you, the public is entitled to. The interim report released today demonstrates the frustration by the Select Panel in seeking public records from UNM HSC, who were only able to obtain many documents due to the efforts of NMAFL. In fact, NMAFL is the only organization that was cited in the Select Panel's criminal referral issued for UNM and Southwestern Women's Options (SWO) last month and the only organization from New Mexico cited in the report today.
From the report: "UNM also objected to some requests as beyond the scope of "the Select Panel's investigative authority." Some of the documents are so heavily redacted that it is impossible to understand their significance." The panel went on to illustrate the differences between documents obtained by NMAFL and the documents produced by UNM pursuant to a congressional subpoena..."The absence of these important documents from UNM's document productions raises the concern that other important documents are missing as well."
Highlights from the Report:
UNM's heavy redactions hinder the Panel from completing the investigation into fetal tissue transfers.
UNM grants faculty status to SWO abortionists, reported by NMAFLhere.
UNM sent residents to perform abortions at SWO without paying them, reported by NMAFL here.
UNM's researcher who custom orders a 7 month unborn baby's, "whole, fixed brains to dissect with summer camp students."
Document sent per congressional subpoena completely blacked out, next to the same document submitted to committee from NMAFL's open records (IPRA) request below.
"The utter foolishness demonstrated by UNM HSC's attempt to appear to comply with the subpoenas shows an intent to mislead and to obstruct the investigative duties of the congressional panel," said Elisa Martinez executive director of New Mexico Alliance for Life. "It is clear now why UNM HSC has been willing to defy open records laws and congressional subpoenas: they are now facing a criminal referral and penalties evidencing violations of the law. NMAFL asks, what else is UNM HSC's Paul Roth, who is a state employee hiding from the public ?" Read the full report here.
