ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The University of New Mexico is ending its relationship with an Albuquerque clinic that offers services that include late-term abortions.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1IifEQY) that the UNM Health Sciences Center announced last week that it will stop sending medical fellows and residents to Southwestern Women’s Options for training.

Dr. Curtis Boyd, the clinic’s director, is a volunteer faculty member at the center but the need for his position is under review.

Officials with the university’s School of Medicine say they are looking for a more academic approach for training at an out-of-state institution.

They say the decision has nothing to do with controversy surrounding the clinic.

Some state lawmakers say the center essentially boosts the clinic’s staffing for abortions.

Center officials say educating residents adds work for the clinic.
