New Mexico Alliance for Life Attorney Files Lawsuit Against UNM Health Sciences Center, Withholding Documents on Study Involving Extracted Eyes of Aborted Babies Up to 24 Weeks Gestation Harvested from Southwestern Women's Options
The University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center is not being transparent about its aborted fetal research program and is either breaking state open records law by withholding documents they are required to maintain by federal regulation- or potentially breaking federal law by not maintaining the documents. NMAFL's attorney filed a lawsuit with District Court in order to obtain documents UNM is required to maintain pursuant to federal regulation originally requested in January, as covered in the Albuquerque Journal today.
NMAFL previously confirmed that UNMHSC is harvesting baby body parts... including eyes, brains, livers, hearts, kidneys... from aborted babies at Southwestern Women's Options, one of the only abortion clinics in that nation that performs abortion until the day of birth for ANY reason.
UNMHSC has ALSO not been cooperative with the Congressional Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives led by Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, who had to subpoena UNM HSC and Curtis Boyd's Southwestern Women's Options in order to obtain documents originally requested regarding the practices of UNMHSC's human research programs, arrangements with Curtis Boyd who also serves as UNM "Assistant Clinical Professor" and their practices of harvesting fetal tissues of late-term babies from his clinic.
"UNMHSC's shroud of secrecy around its aborted fetal research program is why New Mexico Alliance for Life welcomes the congressional investigation. NMAFL and the public are entitled to examine documents about this program pursuant to state open records laws, and UNMHSC is required to maintain documents regarding its aborted fetal program pursuant to federal law, documents UNMHSC has withheld for public inspection to date from our open records request. UNMHSC is either violating federal law, by not maintaining documents required or breaking state law by withholding specific documents requested from the 2015 study using extracted eyeballs from babies aborted up to 24 weeks gestation from late-term abortionist Curtis Boyd."
Is UNMHSC Chancellor Paul Roth Allowing the Violation of Federal Law?
"Ultimately, Dr. Roth is entrusted to ensure UNMHSC is following the law when it comes to research involving human subjects. NMAFL along with New Mexico taxpayers need the confidence that is happening at UNM and are afforded their rights to view public documents - especially when it comes to studies involving body parts, tissues and organs that carry blood-borne pathogens and can expose the public to infectious diseases," Elisa Martinez added.
