Hey Kids: Don’t Forget to Sign Up For Abortion Class Next Semester

Hey Kids: Don’t Forget to Sign Up For Abortion Class Next Semester

Just when you thought college campuses couldn’t get any worse, there’s this.

The University of California-San Francisco is launching a new course on abortion, the first class of it’s kind.

The aim is to “contextualize abortion care within a public health framework from both clinical and social perspectives.”

What “Abortion: Quality Care and Public Health Implications” is really striving to do is normalize abortion as a typical healthcare procedure.

What they don’t acknowledge is that almost all abortions are elective — and only 3% are due to problems with the mother’s actual health. There are also a small percentage of abortions performed on rape or incest victims, but this is also about 3%. At least (and that’s being generous) 90% of abortions are elective — for reasons such as “not ready,” “too young,” “inconvenient,” “don’t want people to know I’m pregnant,” or “inadequate finances.”

Renowned abortion researcher Alan Guttmacher once said, “Today it is possible for almost any patient to be brought through pregnancy alive, unless she suffers from a fatal illness such as cancer or leukemia, and, if so, abortion would be unlikely to prolong, much less save, life.”

By the way, Guttmacher served as president of Planned Parenthood and vice-president of the American Eugenics Society, but that’s just a little detail.

Abortion is almost never healthcare. If anything, it’s the opposite. Doesn’t a doctor pledge to, “First, do no harm.” It’s beyond comprehension how any doctor can perform abortions and remember that’s an oath they took. Of course, it wasn’t hard to find one who has no trouble with it.

“I think that if we can inspire even a small portion of the people who take the course to take steps in their communities to increase access to safe abortion and decrease stigma about abortion, then we have been totally successful,” Dr. Jody Steinauer, associate professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences at the University of California – San Francisco said.

Steinauer noted that this “stigma” results in silence on the issue of and leads people “to believe that [abortion] is not common,” when it  is.

The course syllabus includes sections on “overcoming obstacles to abortion access” and “patient-centered care for first-trimester abortion.” Well, I’m glad to see they haven’t graduated to late-term abortion care but that can’t be too far down the road.

Here’s the thing, University of California, abortion will never be normalized. A 2012 Gallup poll showed that Americans lean pro-life by a nine point margin. You can’t deflect the reality of abortion, which is ending the life of a human being in growth. There’s literally no way around the science of when life begins. You can only justify in blind denial after that.

I doubt too many colleges are going to pick this kind of curriculum. There will be outrage and it will be warranted. Today, there are 53 million people missing in the United States since Roe v. Wade. That’s a lot —  and it certainly indicates that abortion is far too “common.”

UC isn’t delivering an education, it’s promoting an agenda.

    “…and decrease stigma…”

    This is what the Left has done all too successfully in the last 50 years-decreasing the stigma of everything long considered abhorrent and even illegal. Stigmas kept a lid on things-now the nation is morally bankrupt because the lid’s off. And the more stigmas are decreased the worse the country sinks.

    I’ve yet to hear any of these Freedom-of-Choice advocates tell us how they’ve been pulled over for speeding (radar gun confirmed) and tell the police officer, “I elect to exercise my freedom of choice and respectfully refuse accept the speeding ticket that is the direct consequence of my choosing to break the speed limit.”

    The core issue is freedom from the results of one’s choice, ignoring the personal responsibility inherent in wisely exercising freedom in making the “right” choice to begin with. (…realizing that rape is not a choice, but even the Guttmacher Institute notes that abortions for that reason hover in the sub-3% realm).

    Adulthood requires manning (and womanning?) up and accepting the consequences of one’s choices and, as necessary, adjusting one’s decision-making to avoid undesirable results. That’s hard (and that’s also “life”) and not nearly as emotionally satisfying as wailing and whimpering, stomping one’s little feet, demanding one’s own way.
