New Mexico flagA pro-life group in New Mexico is working to shut down what it considers to be a racist abortion facility.

Abortion Free New Mexico has researched and kept a watchful eye on the University of New Mexico (UNM) Center for Reproductive Health, an off-site late-term abortion facility where more than half of the abortions are done on Hispanic women.

Pro-life spokeswoman Tara Shaver tells OneNewsNow UNM is the state's flagship taxpayer-funded university.

"For years they have been what we consider to be the heart of the abortion cartel in New Mexico because they train abortionists, they were harvesting fetal baby body parts and using them for vaccine research, and things like that," Shaver reports. "They're very deeply entrenched in the abortion industry."

UNM's Eve Espey, professor and chair of the Department of OB-GYN and medical director at the abortion facility, has a sordid history. In 2014, for example, she was awarded the Margaret Sanger Award for her eugenic population control efforts targeting the Hispanic community.

"Earlier in her career she really focused on … abortions done on women in South America and also in the Native American tribes here in New Mexico," Shaver notes.

Abortion Free New Mexico is calling on the university, which is currently $13 million in debt, to close its free-standing abortion facility, which performs abortions through the six month of pregnancy. The pro-life organization is also calling for Espey, who receives an annual salary of $505,388 for her work at UNM, making her the school's sixth highest paid employee 2019, to step down.
