Dignity and respect – they deserve it

Southwestern Women's Options (Albuquerque, NM)Pro-lifers in New Mexico are planning to honor aborted babies who were used by researchers and medical students at the University of New Mexico for experiments.

The UNM medical board and Southwestern Women's Options, a late-term abortion clinic in Albuquerque, were named in a congressional probe for possible wrongdoing for harvesting the body parts and handing them over to the facility. As a result of the scandal, the university stopped the research program.

Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico then wrote a letter to UNM's Chancellor for Health Sciences, Dr. Paul Roth, asking him to turn over 72 aborted babies for proper burial. According to Shaver, Roth responded – with a refusal.

"We feel like they don't want to hand them over because they don't want to sort of make a confession of what it is that they've been doing all these years by harvesting actual human beings and using them for experimental research," she tells OneNewsNow.

While Shaver acknowledges that the response from the school was disappointing, the pro-life group will proceed with a service for the children. It will be held at Sandia Memorial Garden in Albuquerque, a site where some abortive mothers have placed plaques honoring their child during the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children. Shaver says as humans, the babies deserve dignity and respect.
