There is a reason that baby parts are difficult to come by in the United States. It is because the thought of having a “good reason” to abort your child has been abhorrent to most Americans. Worse would be thought of such baby parts were bought and paid for by tax-payers. This would then further incriminate the people.
This is exactly what has now been reported as happening in New Mexico.
In a shocking video, the dean of the School of Medicine at the University of New Mexico acknowledged that researchers at the school had dissected “one or two fetal brains” as a part of a recent summer workshop.
This report confirms allegations made by the New Mexico Alliance for Life, a pro-life group that alleged that the University of New Mexico was unlawfully using public funds for the dissection of fetal brains. In the video, Dr. Paul Roth, the dean of UNM’s School of Medicine, is questioned by a video journalist about the school’s alleged practice.
Now we will have some tripe excuse made about the good of science or medicine. That this child’s brain was used to better understand some thing or another. But, in reality, this will be just another childish attempt to justify the murder and dismemberment of a baby.
What is worse, the speed with which our culture has descended into antipathy is astonishing. A decade ago, there would have been a lengthy investigation. There would have been denial after denial. But not now.
There was virtually no attempt to cover up the Universities activity.
Surprisingly, Roth quickly acknowledged that a recent summer workshop had dissected fetal brains: “Yes, we had a faculty member who obtained some tissue, and during one of these summer workshops, uh, dissected I think one or two fetal brains.”
As if telling the reporter what he had for lunch, he admits to the dissection. There seems to be no expectation of outrage. And unfortunately, Roth is most likely correct.
