On Thursday, far-left state Rep. Matthew McQueen (D-Santa Fe) shared a screenshot of a tweet from Piñon Post editor and state representative candidate John Block, claiming his assertions about abortion were untrue.
Block wrote regarding Democrat Gov. Lujan Grisham’s discussion with Kamala Harris during her trip to New Mexico, “That one in the middle is FULL-TERM abortionist Eve Espey, who oversees infanticide at UNM Hospital. She trains future abortionists on how to kill babies up to and AFTER birth,” referring to the woman in the middle of the picture.
The Republican Party of New Mexico retweeted the post, which spurred McQueen to angrily tweet, “This is obviously a lie, and it’s as dangerous as it is disgusting. The fact that the New Mexico Republican Party would promote this trash is a testament to how low they’ve sunk.”
However, he was quickly fact-checked by Block, who brought receipts with him, including evidence from the official U.S. House of Representatives report showing that babies were, indeed, born alive and left to die at UNM Hospital.
The report notes how Espey was asked in a deposition, “I’m trying to understand if any of the doctors that were on the fellows program that . . . went to Southwestern Women’s Options, or any of the doctors from the University of New Mexico that were on a fill-in rotation at Planned Parenthood, or any of the doctors at the University of New Mexico reproductive health center, or any of the doctors at the University Hospital ever told you, reported to you, or discussed with you, that an abortion failed and a live birth resulted?”
She responded by acknowledging that babies were born alive and left to die at UNM Hospital, saying, “There are situations in the hospital where a planned abortion, an induction of labor for a fetus, for example, with severe anomalies is born alive.”
When pressed on what procedures existed to deal with children being born alive and left to die at the hospital, Espey answered “No” to such policies existing, adding, “OB/GYN doctors do not resuscitate neonates.”
Congress referred the evidence to the New Mexico Attorney General’s Office, which has not acted upon it for prosecution.
Lujan Grisham is proudly endorsed by Espey, a notorious late-term abortionist who specializes in training future abortionists to kill babies up to and after birth.
