UNM UPDATE: The Pro-Life Voice Was Heard, Exclusively

UNM UPDATE: The Pro-Life Voice Was Heard, Exclusively


By Bud Shaver

Albuquerque, NM- Abortion Free New Mexico had a protest presence to stand in opposition to the tax funded University of New Mexico’s radical abortion agenda, outside of the UNM Domenici Center, on Friday January 17, 2020… and then members of the group joined the committee that has been appointed to find a replacement for Dr. Paul Roth, Executive Vice President/Chancellor of the Health Sciences Center. 

According to an internal email from the University of New Mexico,

“Your feedback will help create the leadership profile used to develop the candidate pool for the next EVP/Chancellor​ of UNM Health Sciences.”

Apart from a representative of a sitting U.S. Congresswoman, the Pro-Life Community (which included several UNM alumni) were the only ones that showed up to speak to the committee!

The Pro-Life Voice Was Heard, Exclusively!

It was a great intimate setting where members of the pro-life community were able to EXCLUSIVELY voice their concerns about the radical abortion agenda that the University of New Mexico (UNM) has taken under Dr. Paul Roth’s tenure as Executive Vice President/Chancellor of the Health Sciences Center.

Tara Shaver, of Abortion Free New Mexico, was able to voice her concerns about UNM’s free standing abortion facility that performs abortions up to 24 weeks of pregnancy, the U.S. Congressional Criminal Referral related to the use of aborted baby remains in research and was able to convey the fact that as we stood outside and spoke with medical students before the meeting, the majority of them were in agreement with our position and want UNM to change its direction to be more life affirming! Ultimately, she was able to encourage the committee to reform the University of New Mexico and help rebuild its reputation.

Please keep this committee in prayer as the seeds for life have been planted. Also, keep the University of New Mexico in prayer as they choose a new Executive Vice President/Chancellor of the Health Sciences Center, one that will take a more life affirming and morally conscientious direction under new leadership!
