Southwestern Women's Options (Albuquerque, NM)Amid a federal criminal investigation into a segment of the abortion industry, a New Mexico pro-life group contends upholding the law is far more important than political correctness.

New Mexico Alliance for Life, headed by Elisa Martinez, has been able to confirm through the offices of Congressman Steve Pierce (R-New Mexico) and Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (R-Tennessee) that two New Mexico entities are targets of a federal probe.

"The University of New Mexico and Southwestern Women's Options are under criminal investigation by the FBI," states Martinez, "for the practices of illicit harvesting of infant body parts and unlawful consent forms that were given to women in order to obtain those body parts."

In 2016, the U.S. House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives forwarded information on possible criminal charges to New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas. And though there have been no indictments in the past year, Martinez contends there is a vital issue at stake.

"It's extremely important that the rule of law is upheld." declares Martinez. "No one is above the law, but a lot of folks from the other aisle are quick to defend anything that has to do with the abortion industry."

Martinez's latter charge seems evident when the congressional panel conducted an in-depth probe into the abortion industry, and liberals argued the sole purpose of the probe was to damage and disgrace organizations such as Planned Parenthood. Yet, the fact is it's against federal law to harvest aborted baby body parts for a profit.
