The United States House Select Panel on Infant Lives has accused the University of New Mexico of illegally transferring babies' tissue from Southwestern Women's Options, a late-term abortion clinic in Albuquerque, to the university after its chancellor admitted in a video interview that students dissected aborted babies' brains and other body parts at a "summer camp."
In a recent video, UNM chancellor Paul Roth admitted in a matter-of-fact way that the dissection did happen. "Yes, we had a faculty member who obtained some tissue, and during one of these summer workshops, uh, dissected I think one or two fetal brains," Roth said in a video posted on YouTube by New Mexico Alliance for Life.
The House Select Panel has written to New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas, pointing out violations of a state law. more >>
