The University of New Mexico's medical school could face a criminal investigation after admitting that students at a summer camp dissected aborted fetal brains.

The Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives of the U.S. House of Representatives has accused the university of violating state laws regarding the transfer of fetal tissue in a letter to state Attorney General Hector Balderas, Fox News reports.

"Documentation obtained by the panel in the course of its investigation reflects that the transfer of fetal tissue from SWWO to UNM for research purposes is a direct violation of New Mexico's Jonathan Spradling Revised Uniform Anatomical Gift Act," wrote Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., the panel's chairwoman, referring to abortion provider Southwestern Women's Options.

According to Blackburn, the university violated state laws in receiving aborted fetal tissue from Southwestern Women's Options, Fox reports. Dr. Paul Roth, the medical school's dean, agreed that "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," according to a video hosted on LifeNews.com.

Troy Newman, president of Christian pro-life organization Operation Rescue, told The College Fix that Roth's admission "merits criminal charges or further criminal investigation.

"The video interview with Paul Roth corroborates the allegation made by the select panel," Newman says. "There should be immediate criminal charges filed against UNM and Roth, who apparently took no issue with high school kids dissecting aborted baby brains, and whoever requested the brains in the first place."

A spokesman for Balderas confirmed to Fox News that they received a criminal referral.

"I can confirm the office of the attorney general has received a public referral and this matter is under review," spokesman James Hallinan said. "All complaints received by the office of the attorney general are fully reviewed and appropriate action is taken."
