A video by the New Mexico Alliance for Life, captured Dr. Paul Roth, the Dean of School of Medicine at the University of New Mexico, admitting that at a summer neurological camp, high school students dissected aborted baby parts.
Roth revealed that:
“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’s comments confirm the complaints that the US House Select Panel on Infant Lives outlined in a letter to New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas. In the 291-page letter, the US House Select Panel requested criminal charges against the university and Southwestern Women’s Option, an abortion center that has been identified as the provider of aborted baby parts.
The information in this letter shows a clear violation of New Mexico’s Jonathan Spradling Revised Uniform Anatomical Gift Act that
[Prohibits the] use of aborted baby parts for medical research…
Although UNM officials recognize use of fetal brain in their “Neuroscience Summer Experience,” they claim that during this educational research program, the brain dissections were conducted by faculty and not by high school students.
Even if it is true that only professionally trained staff dissected the baby parts, there are some organizations, such as the pro-life advocacy group Operation Rescue, that believe that using body parts of aborted babies cannot be justifiable.
“The video interview with Paul Roth corroborates the allegation made by the Select Panel. There should be immediate criminal charges filed against UNM and Roth … and whoever requested the brains in the first place… Anything less is a gross injustice,” said Troy Newman, the president of Operation Rescue.
