New Mexico abortion clinic may be violating laws

A criminal referral has been issued by The Select Panel on Infant Lives last week to the New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas. The referral is against University of New Mexico and Southwestern Women´s Option, a late-term abortion clinic. 

The Select Panel has stated that the Southwestern Women´s Option provides the University of New Mexico with aborted fetal tissue. 

In the letters to Attorney General Balderas, the chairwoman of the Select Panel on Infant Lives, Rep. Marsha Blackburn alleges that both the university and the clinic committed “systematic violations of the law”. It is against federal law to make profit out of human fetal tissue.

“Section 289g-2 requires safeguards be in place, including a concern that too close a relationship might be formed between an abortion clinic and researchers,” Blackburn wrote in the letter. “Through its investigation, the Panel has discovered that personnel within UNM’s hospital and medical school have aggressively engaged in expanding abortion in New Mexico through the offices, personnel, and resources of UNM.”

However, there was also another accusation made by Blackburn. She stated, “Documentation obtained by the Panel in the course of our investigation reflects the transfer of fetal tissue from Southwestern Women’s Options to UNM for research purposes is a systematic violation of New Mexico’s Spradling Act. These violations occurred as UNM personnel procured fetal tissue from patients at Southwestern Women’s Options for research by UNM entities.”

The Spradling Act forbids making anatomical gifts of any remains of any aborted fetus’s product of an induced abortion. The consent given to SWWO clinic by the mothers of aborted babies does not overrule the Act.  Therefore, both the SWWO and UNM acted in Law violation if these body parts were given away.

A spokesperson for the General Attorney Balderas has stated that the office is reviewing the information provided by the Panel.
