This leaves many alarming questions concerning how notorious late-term abortionist Curtis Boyd, still serves as a UNM “assistant professor,” abortionist and tissue collection facilitator. The total disregard for human life illustrated in this UNM Department of Pediatrics research study by Dr. Robin Ohls and team is both sickening and horrifying. Death row inmates are treated with greater respect and dignity than these innocent, unborn babies.
UNMH officials also said there was no plan to stop accepting fetal tissue from Boyd’s clinic – despite an internal policy that appears to call the practice into question. The policy does not prohibit the practice, they say, but conceded that its wording could be misunderstood by a “lay” person.
And therein lies the problem NMAFL is calling into question. NMAFL says:
This study brings into serious question as to whether UNM’s Curtis Boyd is changing abortion procedures for UNM to harvest baby livers and kidneys from “six fetuses” in this study. How is it possible for Boyd to provide six, intact “fetuses ranging 12 -22 weeks” for UNM’s Dr. Ohls to harvest? Is Boyd performing illegal partial birth abortions in order to provide Dr. Ohls intact bodies to harvest? The procedure Boyd states he uses up to 20 weeks, involves dismemberment and removal of tissue from the uterus. So how is it possible for him to provide “six fetuses” if their bodies have been dismembered and mangled from the abortion procedure?
This is very basic science, an elementary fishing expedition to look at simple molecular changes and regulation of one particular gene. There is no near-term nor even long-term target for therapeutic application. The experimental design was simplistic and poorly controlled, such that the authors could only “speculate” regarding the implication of the results.
A former ordained Baptist minister, Boyd is a Unitarian who says he prays as he aborts babies: “I’ll ask that the spirit of this pregnancy returns to God with love and with understanding.”
