Allow us to honor lives of the unborn used for research

petri dish stem cell researchA pro-life group in The Land of Enchantment is calling on the release of remains of aborted babies out of respect for those children.

The University of New Mexico's School of Health Sciences obtained the tissue and bodies of late-term aborted babies from Southwestern Women's Options, an Albuquerque abortuary that performs abortions through all nine months of pregnancy. Health Sciences Chancellor Dr. Paul Roth has admitted possession of the remains of 72 of the babies, according to Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico.

"He has these babies essentially and their body parts in his possession," she tells OneNewsNow, "and he was quoted in the paper [Albuquerque Journal] as saying he didn't know if he was going to destroy them or not."

UNM used the body parts for research, but after a congressional panel identified the school as possibly violating federal law, the research was ended. Shaver says they are delighted the experiments have been stopped, but is hopeful about more actions.

Shaver

"... We're expecting and urging the University of New Mexico to take it to the next step and let us have these babies and let us properly bury them," she explains. "... That can put New Mexico one step forward to building a culture of life and respecting all human life from conception."

Shaver points out the remains are not like those of dogs or mice used in experiments. They are human beings and should be given the dignity a deceased person receives.
