Albuquerque, NM- The Select Panel on Infant Lives has issued their final 471 page report after a year long in depth investigation into the trafficking of aborted fetal remains throughout the nation. This investigation has uncovered so much and produced vital information that has culminated in various criminal referrals including to our own New Mexico Attorney General.
Protest ABQ applauds the work of the House Select Panel and would also like to acknowledge the real unsung heroes of this entire investigation, our friends and mentors Troy Newman and Cheryl Sullenger. This report vindicates decades of their tireless research revealing abortion abuses nationwide. In fact, it was Operation Rescue who deployed us to New Mexico in 2010 and have collaborated with us on various projects and the filing of subsequent complaints that have helped lay the foundation for the break through of exposure that has taken place.
"In 2011 when we published our first article exposing the University of New Mexico's (UNM) radical abortion agenda, we had no idea that 5 years later New Mexico would be at the heart of a congressional investigation. Little did we know that the congressional panel would validate what we have said all along, that UNM is the heart of the abortion cartel in the state and that late term abortions are a common occurrence in our city of Albuquerque. We remember the days when we first arrived in New Mexico and very few people believed that late term abortions occurred let alone that UNM was involved in moving forward a radical abortion agenda," stated Bud Shaver, Executive Director of Protest ABQ.
The Panel's investigation revealed in part, the following:
- The Panel identified several research institutions across the United States, mostly state universities and virtually all recipients of federal as well as state funding, that have formed a close relationship with one or more abortion clinics.
The House Select Panel also included recommendations in this final report that include but are not limited to, defunding Planned Parenthood of government funding and passing a law to ban abortions after 20 weeks.
The University of New Mexico is a publicly funded institution and as such taxpayers should be afforded transparency and accountability in light of the panel's findings and criminal referral to the New Mexico Attorney General. Protest ABQ has launched a campaign to urge Attorney General Hector Balderas to investigate and prosecute SWO and UNM. We have sent postcards throughout the state alerting constituents that he has two criminal complaints on his desk and has been unresponsive as to the status of these complaints. It is our hope that justice will finally be served on behalf of the ultimate victims of abortion, the pre-born children.
