I am extremely gratified to see the Lt. Governor of New Mexico stand for life. As the past week drew to a close New Mexico’s Lt. Governor, John Sanchez, released a very clear statement on his dismay that the University of New Mexico is not being open about their connection with abortionist Curtis Boyd and how the UNM Health Science Center is trafficking in human body parts.
It has become extremely fashionable for leaders to say, “I am pro life” and then do nothing in regard to that conviction. The Lt Governor has taken a strong stand and I, for one, applaud his vocal call for transparency at UNM.
I am calling on ALL political leaders who claim the title “Pro Life” to cry out for the University of New Mexico to be open and honest about the practices and procedures at UNMHSC. The University MUST stop stonewalling the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee and come clean.
Yes, the Politicians need to speak up. So do the Pastors and the Pew Sitters. Yes, everyone needs to speak up to the Lobos!
Recent news of a Congressional investigation into the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center’s (UNMHSC) relationship with Southwestern Women’s Options Clinic and Dr. Curtis Boyd is troubling and alarming. The investigation has apparently revealed that the University, through this relationship, is participating in the harvesting and testing of infant body parts.
I have been clear about my opposition to the harvesting of infant organs by Planned Parenthood and am even more appalled to learn that it could occur right here in conjunction with the University of New Mexico. The practice is both barbaric and unethical, and I certainly expect better from UNMHSC and its leaders.
I have also been clear that I am unapologetically pro-life; however, this issue is not about abortion – it is about whether our flagship university should be participating in such unconscionable acts.
Further, if recent allegations are true, and taxpayers are funding malpractice insurance premiums for Dr. Boyd to perform these actions, I call on University leadership to immediately terminate his coverage and sever any and all ties with him and his clinic.
I believe we can all agree that our flagship university, which so many sons and daughters of New Mexico proudly call their alma mater, should not be engaging in the harvesting and experimentation of infant body parts.
