Albuquerque, NM- Earlier this month we shared news stories announcing some abrupt changes at the University of New Mexico with regard to the Health Sciences Center board being dissolved by the UNM regents. In 2010, when we moved to Albuquerque this governing board was brand new, and it placed Dr. Paul Roth in a position of incredible control.

Some have criticized the UNM regents for acting so quickly to re-adjust leadership at UNM (even GOP leadership) by giving the President of the University, Robert Frank, appropriate authority while bringing Paul Roth more under control. It has been said that for the past five years the University has had two heads, these changes have “removed Roth’s full oversight authority over HSC property, finances, staff and legal matters and subjected them to approval of UNM President Frank.”

For 5 years we have been exposing and applying pressure to those with the ability to end the abortion agenda at UNM. Whether the motivation for change at UNM was rooted in money, a new hospital or damage control due to Paul Roth’s leadership…It is hard for us to ignore the fact that UNM is currently under a congressional investigation regarding the use of fetal tissue and it’s abortion agenda has become widely known during Dr. Paul Roth’s tenure.

It seems as though UNM leadership is moving in the right direction in order to make substantial change, however, Dr. Paul Roth is still the motivating force behind their radical abortion agenda. As Dean of the School of Medicine Roth was the highest authority in giving abortionist Eve Espey the promotion to Chair of the Obgyn department, even though her agenda is to promote abortion here and abroad. Espey also received the Margaret Sanger award in 2014.

In order for UNM to completely abandon their pro-abortion agenda, a few things must be done. Roth and Espey must be terminated and now President Frank has the authority to bring the matter to the Regents for their approval. We are asking the public to contact President Frank and ask him to urge the regents to terminate the contracts of both Espey and Roth.

Please join us in contacting UNM President Robert Frank

*ACGME accreditation does not require that universities have their own free standing abortion facility

“Not only does UNM embrace abortion and run a free standing abortion facility in Albuquerque performing abortions up to 22 weeks of pregnancy, they have also recently been caught red handed using aborted baby body parts in medical research. Are you comfortable with your tax dollars being used to kill and experiment on pre-born babies?”

Please contact UNM President Robert Frank and ask him to urge the Board of Regents to terminate the contracts of Dr. Paul Roth and Dr. Eve Espey.

Robert G. Frank, UNM President

February Newsletter 2016: Catalyst For Change In New Mexico

Dear Pro-Life Friends,

When we moved to New Mexico five years ago our prayer was that everything that we did for God and His babies through research, outreach and public exposure would ultimately be a catalyst for others to step up and all of our efforts would bring the abortion industry crashing down.

This month when we learned that the US House Panel on Infant Lives was conducting a federal investigation of Southwestern Women’s Options and the University of New Mexico and was going to subpoena them for records pertaining to the harvesting and use of aborted baby body parts, we were thankful that these child killing businesses would finally have to answer to someone…other than God!

Please pray that the U.S. House Panel’s investigation will bear fruit that will bring the New Mexico abortion cartel to a halt. All glory belongs to God, the ultimate provider of justice for the pre-born babies we fight so hard to protect.

“The conclusion, when all has been heard, is: fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person. For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil.” Ecclesiastes 12:13-14

The following pictures are a mere snapshot of the protests we held this month as we continue to light up the darkness in our city.

New Mexicans Forced To Fund The State’s Abortion Industry

New Mexicans Forced To Fund The State’s Abortion Industry

By Tara Shaver

Albuquerque, NM- Since 1998 New Mexico taxpayers have been footing the bill for women to have abortions through New Mexico Medicaid. Per the Hyde Amendment, federal money is prohibited from being used to pay for abortions, except in cases of rape, incest or life endangerment of the mother, so New Mexico became one of 17 states that uses state money to pay for abortions. New Mexico is one of 13 states that does so as a result of a court order.

Based on the court decision, New Mexico Right to Choose/NARAL v Johnson, New Mexico Medicaid pays for abortions using state tax dollars for any reason, through all nine months of pregnancy.

Notorious late term abortionist, Curtis Boyd, who owns Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque and performs abortions up to the day of birth, was one of four abortionists who teamed up with NARAL to challenge the existing law regarding medicaid funding of abortion in the state. Their claim was that these restrictions violated the equal rights provision of the New Mexico Constitution.

According to a summary from Americans United for Life, the New Mexico Supreme Court inevitably “never considered the rights of the unborn child but maintained that interest in the life of the unborn is never compelling enough to outweigh the life and health of the mother.”

The New Mexico Supreme Court’s decision came in spite of the fact that the district court had granted two New Mexico citizens to intervene as taxpayers on behalf of the pre-born child. The Court denied these citizens standing on the account that the rights of pre-born children are already protected by the state, which unfortunately is not true.

This ruling has put the burden on the people of New Mexico to fund the abortion industry in the state. Recently, Southwestern Women’s Options and the University of New Mexico have come under federal investigation for being involved in the use of aborted baby body parts in medical research, which begs the question: Are New Mexicans funding this practice as well?

Overall abortions have declined in New Mexico despite the lack of pro-life legislation. To date in 2013, $392,960.77 was paid to abortionists across the state and to those who travel from out of state like California late term abortionists Shelley Sella and Susan Robinson do.

In 2014, $241,989.69 of tax dollars were used to pay for abortions in New Mexico.

The University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, Hospital and Medical Group were also separately paid for abortion services during 2014.

Fr. Stephen Imbarrato of Priests for Life issued the following statement, “It is intolerable that the good taxpayers of New Mexico are being forced to fund the abortion cartel in our state. We believe this funding may even extend to people from all over the country who come to NM for abortions. It is our goal that the NM abortion industry be defunded by the state of NM and be restricted to the extent that it is no longer a viable business option here. Abortion is bad business and we as taxpayers need to reject and protest pre-born baby killing in our state and anyone who supports or condones it.”
