UNM REMOVE "HEROES WORK HERE" BANNER AND CLOSE ABORTION FACILITY (UNMCRH)Read the Petition
We the People of New Mexico, citizens, taxpayers, University of New Mexico Alumni, are disgusted that the University of New Mexico, our state’s flagship institution, has publicly deemed abortionists heroes by means of a banner attached to one of its buildings with the message “Heroes Work Here”. This facility is located at 2301 Yale SE in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Heroes do not work at abortion clinics.
For an abortion facility, whose main purpose is to take life, to blatantly compare itself to hospital medical staff caring for COVID-19 patients is shocking and insulting. We do have medical heroes, saving lives every day while risking their own safety and well-being, however, they are not working at this abortion clinic. The UNM Center for Reproductive Health performs late term abortions through 6 months gestation!
We are calling upon you, the University of New Mexico President, Garnett Stokes, UNM Regents, and the UNM Medical Group to immediately take action and have the management of this clinic take down this banner-permanently.
The University of New Mexico is an institution of higher learning, in addition to removing the “Heroes Work Here” banner, our hope is that UNM will disassociate the university from this facility because the intentional taking of an innocent person’s life should never be associated with our university’s policies or mission.
We have notified the University of New Mexico President, Garnett Stokes, by telephone and mail, asking her to immediately have the management of the UNM sponsored abortion clinic to take down this banner. As of today, the offensive banner remains posted. This attempt for the UNM abortion clinic to steal the honor and praise of truly dedicated medical staff at our hospitals and clinics should stop now. The intentional taking of another innocent person’s life should never be rewarded, celebrated or honored.
At a time when UNM is currently 13 million dollars in debt, let’s start with defunding and closing the UNM Center for Reproductive Health late term abortion facility.
For an abortion clinic, whose sole purpose is to take life, to blatantly compare itself to hospital medical staff caring for covid-19 patients is shocking and insulting. We do have medical heroes, saving lives every day while risking their own safety and well-being, however they are not working at this abortion clinic. New Mexicans have the highest respect for our medical community and the work they have done to protect all New Mexicans during these difficult times.
