Albuquerque, New Mexico- In a shocking admission, University of New Mexico (UNM) Regent Robert Schwartz celebrates UNM's participation in the killing of babies up to 24 weeks old in the womb and designated those who perform these late term abortions as heroes above those in the medical community who actually work to save lives every day. This occurred during a bi-monthly virtual Board of Regents Meeting where local concerned citizens spoke out against this atrocity.
On Tuesday February 16, 2021, Abortion Free New Mexico's, Tara Shaver (click here to hear her statement),
Prominent pro-life priest Fr. Stephen Imbarrato (click here to hear his statement),
and Stephen Harrington, a concerned pro-life UNM alumnus of the "Anderson School of Business" (class of 1983) addressed the UNM Board of Regents regarding not only the University of New Mexico's persistence in maintaining their free-standing late term abortion facility, Center for Reproductive Health (UNMCRH), but also due to the offensive "Heroes Work Here" banner that has drawn attention and criticism from the pro-life community.
For years Abortion Free New Mexico has worked to expose the radical abortion agenda stemming from UNM. From promoting embryonic stem cell research to recruiting and training the next generation of abortionists, UNM is at the heart of the New Mexico abortion cartel. This publicly funded institution utilizes tax dollars for their programs and for this reason it is time for the members of the community to speak directly to UNM leadership to express their concerns and demand that this extremist agenda is halted.
Stephen Harrington's statement to the UNM Board of Regents reads,
"I will be speaking as a concerned alumnus today. It has come to my attention that UNM is operating and funding an abortion clinic. It is located off campus near the airport. They perform late term abortions at this facility. I think it is reprehensible that UNM is using tax dollars to keep this clinic open. Included in this money may be the generous donations of UNM alumni. You and you alone, the Regents, have the power to put a stop to this appalling practice by closing this clinic. On the building is a sign that reads, 'Heroes Work Here.' I firmly believe in and support our frontline workers who tirelessly strive to save lives. However, abortionists and their aides do not save lives. In fact, they take lives. Webster's defines 'hero' as, 'A person admired for achievements and noble qualities.' This does not define the workers of this clinic. I would like to ask that you have this sign removed immediately. I thank you for allowing me the time to speak to you today and ask that you carefully consider my recommendations."
