Post cards expose who is responsible for UNM’s abortion business, says pro-life group
A New Mexico pro-life group has just released post cards (image below) to expose who they believe to be behind the abortion business going on at the University of New Mexico. The post card features Dr. Paul Roth and Dr. Eve Epsey.
Epsey has also been “honored” by the Physicians for Reproductive Health for which she is a former board member along with abortionist Curtis Boyd who ran a training program at the UNM. Epsey was also a 2014 recipient of Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award, named after was the advocate of eugenics who founded the abortion business.
This postcard will be delivered by mail to multiple Albuquerque neighborhoods this weekend. The University of New Mexico is a publicly funded institution and the community deserves to know who is responsible for UNM’s radical abortion agenda.
Bud and Tara Shaver who founded Protest ABQ, said that in 2010 the University of New Mexico placed Dr. Paul Roth in charge of their governing board. Dr. Roth is listed as the chancellor of the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center and dean of the School of Medicine, on the school’s website.
According to a report filed by Tara Shaver, in 2007, UNM launched its free-standing abortion clinic, the UNM Center for Reproductive Health (UNMCRH), which conducts abortions up to 22 weeks gestation, or over half way through pregnancy.
In addition to this off-campus freestanding abortion clinic, there is also a clinic on campus performing abortions up to 11.5 weeks gestation. Known as the Family Practice Center, it offers specialized services in ObGyn through the Department of Family Practice at UNM.
Essentially UNM is running two abortions clinics…
UNM is currently one of 68 universities that participate in the Kenneth J. Ryan Residency Program in Abortion and Family Planning. The Ryan Program, founded in 1999, is a national initiative whose mission is to embed abortion training into residency programs throughout the United States and Canada.
In 2014, members of Project Defending Life met with UNM Regents, including the Board of Regents President Jack Fortner, and the Health Sciences Center Dean, Paul Roth, to express concerns about the blatant disregard for human life at UNM. Unfortunately, those meetings were to no avail.
Now, according to Shaver, “The University of New Mexico (UNM) Board of Regents is attempting to dissolve the Health Sciences Center (HSC) board and demote Dr. Paul Roth (godfather of abortion at UNM).”
Could it be that the UNM Regents realize that the Health Sciences Center (HSC) under Dr. Paul Roth’s control has taken the UNM Health system in the wrong direction with Roth’s radically pro-abortion agenda?
According to the New Mexico Political Report:
[UNM Regents Rob Doughty] Doughty and [Marron] Lee’s authored changes removed Roth’s full oversight authority over HSC property, finances, staff and legal matters and subjected them to approval of UNM President Frank.
Shortly before the Regents made a vote, Roth told the public that UNM President Frank would immediately reinstate Roth’s role as CEO. After the vote, Roth said in a statement that he was “grateful” to Frank “for clarifying that I will continue as CEO of the UNM Health System, with all of the responsibilities and authorities commensurate with that.”
Doughty also told reporters after the vote that Roth stays in charge of the “day-to-day operations” of HSC. Still, an HSC spokesman told NM Political Report last week that HSC press relations were in the process of learning “what that entails.”
Protest ABQ has released a statement that although the move is in the right direction, having Roth who allowed these abortion facilities at the University to continues in any roll is just not acceptable and reads:
Some have criticized the UNM regents for acting so quickly to re-adjust leadership at UNM (even GOP leadership) by giving the President of the University, Robert Frank, appropriate authority while bringing Paul Roth more under control. It has been said that for the past five years the University has had two heads, these changes have “removed Roth’s full oversight authority over HSC property, finances, staff and legal matters and subjected them to approval of UNM President Frank.”
For 5 years we have been exposing and applying pressure to those with the ability to end the abortion agenda at UNM. Whether the motivation for change at UNM was rooted in money, a new hospital or damage control due to Paul Roth’s leadership…It is hard for us to ignore the fact that UNM is currently under a congressional investigation regarding the use of fetal tissue and it’s abortion agenda has become widely known during Dr. Paul Roth’s tenure.
It seems as though UNM leadership is moving in the right direction in order to make substantial change, however, Dr. Paul Roth is still the motivating force behind their radical abortion agenda. As Dean of the School of Medicine Roth was the highest authority in giving abortionist Eve Espey the promotion to Chair of the Obgyn department, even though her agenda is to promote abortion here and abroad. Espey also received the Margaret Sanger award in 2014.
In order for UNM to completely abandon their pro-abortion agenda, a few things must be done. Roth and Espey must be terminated and now President Frank has the authority to bring the matter to the Regents for their approval. We are asking the public to contact President Frank and ask him to urge the regents to terminate the contracts of both Espey and Roth.
Please join us in contacting UNM President Robert Frank
*ACGME accreditation does not require that universities have their own free standing abortion facility
“Not only does UNM embrace abortion and run a free standing abortion facility in Albuquerque performing abortions up to 22 weeks of pregnancy, they have also recently been caught red handed using aborted baby body parts in medical research. Are you comfortable with your tax dollars being used to kill and experiment on pre-born babies?”
Please contact UNM President Robert Frank and ask him to urge the Board of Regents to terminate the contracts of Dr. Paul Roth and Dr. Eve Espey.
