Tracy Weitz, the woman at the Bixby Global Reproductive Health Center, University of California San Francisco who orchestrated the medical research project which ended in legalizing non-physician abortions, is no longer working there.
Weitz’s “husband,” Marj Plumb, announced, “On January 1, 2014, I moved to Nebraska with my wife, Tracy Weitz, who took an exciting new job based in Omaha. This will be an important step in her already stellar career.”
The announcement was made by Plumb on the website for the Lyon Martin Center in San Francisco which focuses on health services for lesbians and transgendered people.
According to David Callahan of Inside Philanthropy, hiring of Tracy Weitz of UC San Francisco by the Buffett Foundation in Omaha, Nebraska has been kept hush-hush – “no press release, of course.”
Callahan says of Weitz, “She worked for Planned Parenthood early in her career, and she’s worked squarely on abortion and women’s health issues for many years at the University of California in San Francisco, where she’s been affiliated since 2002.”
Her bio at UC San Francisco states:
“Dr. Weitz’s passion is for those aspects of women’s health which are marginalized either for ideological reasons, or because the populations affected lack the means or mechanisms to have their concerns raised. Her current research focuses on innovative strategies to expand abortion provision in the U.S. Included in her research portfolio is a demonstration project of the use of nurse practitioners, certified nurse midwives, and physician assistants as providers of abortion care in California, several studies of abortion regulation, and a national strategic plan to secure access to later abortion care.”
Weitz’s project at UC San Francisco – HWPP #171 – was designed to create non-physician surgical abortionists who would work primarily at Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in California. The industry is eager to fill the void, both in California and the United States, created by fewer physicians willing to do abortions. Weitz’s project was eventually criticized for the higher complications to women committed by non-physician abortionists trained in her program.
Weitz had a salary of $136,000 per year at UC San Francisco and is expected to make $350,000 as director of domestic programs, a position vacated by Judith DeSarno at the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation.
Almost the entire amount of $2 billion from the Buffett Foundation is doled out to population control advocacy groups such as Planned Parenthood. That money will now be controlled by Weitz and her boss, Allen Greenberg, executive director of the Buffet Foundation and a former attorney for Public Citizen. Under Weitz, it is expected that the Buffett Foundation will give billions of dollars to the population control industry for the purpose of creating new non-physician surgical abortionists throughout the nation and abroad.
The Buffett Foundation has been eager to throw millions into “access” projects, especially in Africa and Turkey. One particular population control group, Venture Strategies Innovation of Irvine, California, received over $6 million in 2012 to create “access.” Joseph Speidel, M.D. age 77, is co-director at UC San Francisco’s Global Reproductive Health Center and as such was Weitz’s boss there. Speidel is on the board of directors at the Venture Strategies Innovation company.
Neo-Malthusians, who believe that population control is essential so they Haves can live better. Weitz epitomizes the war against women.
Buffet does not really run a charity. He runs a monstrous population control center which reflects his paranoia regarding the Have-Nots.
I’ve seen Tracy Weitz in action at legislative committee hearings in Sacramento. She often tried to portray herself as an M.D. by refering to herself as Dr. Weitz.
Her testimony was always dishonest. as she relentlessly pushed the Planned Parenthood agenda. Why are some lesbians so eager to push abortion?
Why? Obviously because their chosen lifestyle as a homosexual woman is in direct opposition to their given natural gifts as women. It couldn’t be more clear. The enemies of God will push their opposition to 180 degrees to press their point. For that reason every effort must be made to clearly oppose such behavior. This woman and her friend are truly lost souls, and are completely blind to that sad fact. That is not a judgement call against them, but a clear statement of fact. (This pair are partners in sin, nothing more, and nothing so sad.)
Life Lady you have said so well…….These peole never think of Eternity! I think it was Saint Faustina or perhaps another saint who said, ” If men only knew what Eternity is they would never sin again.”
Gates and Buffet are perfect examples of Our Lord’s admonition about worldly riches and honors: “I tell you, they have had their reward.”
Linda R.- the reason they want to be in the business of murdering children, because they themselves have no children(although with todays technology they certainly can become pregnant without the physical use of a man and then kill babies. They do that with IVF anyway and selective reduction of babies based on whatever reason they deem necessary). Abortion is part and parcel of the culture of death- You have the whole lot of death loving things going on in this world- abortion, contraception, euthanasia, homosexuality, sterilizations, pornography, prostitution, and most of these have to do with the offense of human dignity and with human sexuality. Most of these “ideals” are driven by greed. Lesbians usually do have a problem with reproduction and the true gift of self which comes from sacrificial love, they don’t usually have difficulties in loving sacrifices such as baby killing. PP is their church.
Tanya ~ You write ” Lesbians usually do have a problem with reproduction and the true gift of self which comes from sacrificial love, they don’t usually have difficulties in loving sacrifices such as baby killing. PP is their church.”
Being a lesbian myself, I just have to say you are just plain wrong. Where did you get that idea. Lesbian moms love their kids just like moms and dads. Do you know any lesbian parents? If my girlfriend had survived, we might have had children. Would it have been right for you to make such a sweeping (negative) judgement about me and mine? Also -… my church is the Roman Catholic Church. My lesbian friends are Catholics, Baptists, Jews and Anglican among others. Trying to tie us in general to abortion because one abortion zealot happens to be a gay woman is irrational. I expect most pro abortion activists are straight men and women.
C&H thank you for that post. I also dislike the assumption that being gay means that we are pro abortion and anti church. Thanks for calling out that false distinction.
is that all you got out of her statement? relativism all the way.
No, Tanya, that’s not all I got out of her statement. I also understood from here statement that you were just plain wrong. Happy now?
“Being a lesbian myself, I just have to say you are just plain wrong. Where did you get that idea. Lesbian moms love their kids just like moms and dads. Do you know any lesbian parents?

Also -… my church is the Roman Catholic Church.”
Dear C&H, The Catholic Church does not allow homosexual acts & marriage. If you are a practicing Catholic, you are going against it’s teachings and spreading errors with your statements. Ask your priest for guidance and read the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
L.Lee.. Just so you know, I talk to my priest about EVERY major event in my life .. including when my girlfriend became ill and then died. He was a tower of strength for me then. I also have a dog-eared copy of the CCC which I refer to from time to time.
C&H does your parish have a rainbow flag hanging proudly from the ceiling… ??? gay friendly ? (ie promotes sodomy)
Excuse me if you are offended, I will not apologize for my statement above. It is true enough that homosexuals/lesbians are very much narcissistic and self absorbed. I cannot believe they are good parents, because they think about their sexuality as their humanhood and not about the best interest of the children. totally selfish. I’m glad you have acquaintances from every denomination, and I sure you are a pleasant person, I hope that you are delivered from your wound and receive healing from Jesus Christ. Something every one needs , I am not excluded. Homosexual love is selfish and sterile, a nonfruitful union, it is anti life, abortion is a cousin of everything anti life. Happy Feast of Saint Joseph.
Tanya..You are making sweeping negative judgements about
me and millions of others a based on what???? Do you have any gay friends, coworkers or close relatives? Do you read anything about gay people that isn’t found in the right wing blogesphere? Really!!!!
Tanya, I invite you to get to know some real gay people, not just the boogie men you might hear about. I think you need to ask yourself honestly whether there is any empirical truth in your very harsh criticisms, or is it just a formula for you to recite so that you feel better about yourself.
YFC, do you think that Tanya would abandon the truth if she were to become acquainted with even 100 “real” queers? I myself have had acquaintance with far more than that over the years. I have also been acquainted with “real” couples who fornicate and use contraception or are married and use contraception and sterilize themselves. In addition I have had and currently do have close relationships with those who have gone down to the abortion clinic where they paid for a thug to murder their unborn child. With all of this “relating” going on, per your prescription, I guess you would think that I too should now be a supporting fan of the disorder of sin.
Yes Tracy, I think she would. And I have to say I frankly doubt that you have ahad all the encounters with the hundreds of gay people (whom you openly disparage by calling them “queer” complete with your own scare quotes). or the others whom you mention in your post. I actually don’t believe you have met these people. I don’t think you have ever ever in your life exposed yourself to these real people. I say this, not only because the numbers you produce are in fact incredible, I also don’t believe that, having met these individuals, you would be so hard of heart with respect to their condition. I say THIS, because, when we come out and tell our stories, folks who are of very deep faith, who believe in the saving power of our Lord, come to understand taht we are indeed blessed members of the Christian Community.
The more we talk to people about our state in life, the more we communicate with them about the struggles we have in life, the more we find that folks are actually pretty sympathetic about what we go through.
And the more folks like you look like the Fred Phelps of the world, and we all know where that leads.
Homosexual parents are themselves are a form of child abuse by purposely denying the presence of either the mother or father… Yes gender does matter, we are different, I know the political Left hates this fact, but its true because God himself made it that way…
You know Serge, I have two brothers in law enforcement. The stories they tell me about real child abuse. Sometimes by married couples and horribly , even by couples married in the Catholic Church are terrible. Better kids have a loving single parent or two loving, same gender parents than ANYONE who abuses or neglects them.
C & H, is that the brother you said is a homosexual? You said before that at least two of your brothers were. If so, could that prejudice his mind in some way about some of the parents? I do know there is heterosexual child abuse, but homosexuals and lesbians deliberately bringing children in the world without both a mother and a father is also a form of child abuse. The Christians job is to help heterosexuals become better parents and save their marriages, not throw children out of the frying pan into the fire.
ch- I hope you read the Catechism of the Catholic Church since you claim unity with the Roman Catholic Church. You are apparently off the marker here, and I can make sweeping statements, because homosexuals/lesbians/ and whatever other disorder you want to put down make sweeping statements about the intolerance of so called right winged Christians. I am a sinner, and have inclinations that I am constantly battling, and that will not come to a close until I depart form this world. I am not a right wing anything, I’m a child of God. He wrote the rules, not me, and I want to do the right thing. I may not have all the fuzzy emotions that the effeminate have, but wish very much the whole universe would love God and obey His commandments. Children are not better off in a same gender “family”, it isn’t the best for the children. Children need stable, mother and father homes. Your proposal about single and same sex is wrong. do you think the devil exists? He does and the turmoil in our society is his doing, including the lesbian and her human baby sacrificing. culture of death is alive(pun intended). Happy feast of Saint Joseph, Holy Mary mother of God pray for me, pray for us
Tanya, C&H and YFC are openly gay and proud of it. They attempt to attack anyone with a contrary view (ie the natural order) they are both liberal and that tells you a lot. Liberals despise the natural as they attack every tradition in this culture under guise of tolerance. Example, if you believe that marriage is as God intended a man and woman you are considered full of hate by the new guardians of tolerance. People like C&H, YFC demand acceptance no matter what. Oh how they claim to be union with the Church but declare war on God’s order and the family by telling us what family is. Believe me this all ends pretty badly because no society in history can survive with multiple versions of the Truth…
Serge ~ , I’m not attacking anyone. You are entitled to your opinion even if I thin they’re wrong. I don’t know if I demand acceptance, but as a fellow child of God , I think I should get it from you as I accept you. If you don’t think I’m in union with the Church, tell me what you think I should do to become so. Become hetrosexual and marry a man?
Serge, you are right, I am openly gay and proud of it. And there is nothing about being gay, being open about being gay, nor being proud of being gay is contrary to Church teaching.
YFC, everything you said is wrong…. how do you square your belief in so called “gay marriage” going against the Will of God….you are the type who will demand acceptance.. but you will never get it from me… bet on it
Well looks like the gay shock troops have been awoken. You dare challenge that crowd and boy do they get upset. YFC you have openly stated that you are a proud sodomite, ie its safe to guess that you engage in sodomy with whoever. Do you honestly believe you are carrying out the Will of Christ by make these statements….
C&H, communists are children of God, as are satanist, I don’t accept them why should I accept a group of people who are determined to destroy whats left of the social order (queue liberal eyes roll)…
Serge… You write ” communists are children of God, as are satanist,” The Pope himself has said he knows Communists who are good people. Being a Communist (political idiology) or Satanist (religion) is different from being gay. One decides to follow a political party or faith (even weird ones) On the other hand, God in his infinite wisdom which we mortals can’t understand, has decided that in every generation a small percentage of his children will be attracted to their own gender rather that the opposite one. I happen to be one of them.
From that fact some people make all kinds of calmanus projections about us. You, for example have decided with no information or evidence that it’s safe to make assumptions about what YFC might do in his bedroom. We’re all sinners and perhaps most of us have and do, from time to time, commit sexual sins. Do you really believe that any straight sexual sins you may have committed are somehow less grevious that those I may have committed? Do tell.
I will tell C&H, the heterosexual acts are normal and within the natural order things sinful yes, but normal. The sin of sodomy cries out to Heaven for vengeance, the normal sexual act does not. As this applies to YFC, he stated he is proud to be gay, the out loud gays that I see all over NYC are without doubt engaging in sex with each. Yes I have seen your gay shame parades with gay men wearing little more than g-strings, showing as much of themselves that is legally possible they are inviting other men to have sex. May I ask you C&H why is not safe to assume that men like YFC are engaging in sodomy. The entire purpose of the gay movement is for society to make it OK for them to have sex without judgment thrown at them. They want be out and they want the rest of to accept it. Well not bit of acceptance from me. I know you people are really, you want to tear down the very moral structure of the culture so you feel accepted and you will do it by any means necessary. As for the Pope and communist well he is wrong, communist are evil and believe an ideology that swallowed over 50 million souls in the last century in the “name of the people”, perhaps the Pope should speak to someone who survived eastern Europe.
In all fairness, C&H, the….
“You, for example have decided with no information or evidence that it’s safe to make assumptions about what YFC might do in his bedroom,” is overstating the benefit-of-the-doubt mentality.
Sexual relations are part and parcel of the societal understanding of cohabiting couples that advertise that they are in fact a couple and/or married. Married heterosexual couples, while fully capable of committing sinful acts behind closed doors, are not walking endorsements of homosexual sex which is the only type of physical sexual interaction in which homosexual ‘couples’ can engage by virtue of their chosen same sex partner.
So it is the additional sin of scandal (giving bad example) and the reality of sodomy inherent in the homosexual relationship that does make it more grievous.
God in His wisdom allows all manner of crosses to visit His children.
Oh dear ..
Serge … No rainbow flag. I think we have a US and a Vatican flag though.
Anon… Both brothers in law enforcement are very straight and married…. to women.
Tanya .. Are you saying lesbian moms somehow “sacrifice” their babies or maybe offer them up to the devil????? This kind of thinking isn’t what the Church teaches.
Perhaps you didn’t notice the honored guest at the Creighton University NCAA basketball game? Ssitting next to the president, Fr. Timothy Lannon, SJ, was none other than Warren Buffett -population control racist.
Weitz’s friend, Toni Atkins, a lesbian abortion mill operator from San Diego, is now in charge of the California Assembly.
I continue to be impressed that California Catholic Daily News provides insightful and useful stories such as this eye-opener.
As a convert, I am so disappointed that my diocesan newspaper fails and pales in comparison.
Welcome to the Church, Lisa Lowe. And thank God for the grace of being able to appreciate and welcome eye-openers. The political correct dance that goes on in some diocesan newspapers only leads people to be blindsided and subsequently disillusioned. But being politically correct or silent amid the onslaught of evil is a sign of the times in which we live. Glad to know you are a grain of salt that prefers maintaining that all important flavor!
Don’t let Ann Malley fool you, Lisa, she does not attend church at a parish in full communion with the Roman catholic church.
Okay, Anonymous, this is straight from Cardinal Walter Kasper regarding Vatican II and the subsequent confusion it causes:
“In many places, [the Council Fathers] had to find compromise formulas, in which, often, the positions of the majority are located immediately next to those of the minority, designed to delimit them. Thus, the conciliar texts themselves have a huge potential for conflict, open the door to a selective reception in either direction. (L’Osservatore Romano, April 12, 2013)”
Since the Cardinal is part of the upcoming Synod I doubt you would call into question his full communion. I don’t. But what he is in full communion with is intentional ambiguity. That’s why diocesan papers seem to fall short of delivering the Truth. Because it’s up for interpretation.
Take that however you’d like, but take it up with the likes of Cardinal Kasper, not with those of us on the ground trying to figure out the where and how of saving our souls and those of our children (Children smart enough to see past the liturgical dance and don’t judge message as they are faced with having to make judgments every day).
I for one thank Cardinal Kasper for his bold honesty. THAT is refreshing.
God bless :)
I think you are wasting your time trying to reason with Mr. A., Ann.
Lisa Lowe, welcome home! Now let’s clean house!
Anonymous, which concerns you the most; discrediting the truth which Ann speaks of or helping Ann to reconcile with many of our church leaders who often spread falsehoods?
Steve Phoenix, you could be right, but then it is important for others to realize that it is not only some odd faction critiquing VII as being open for misinterpretation. That’s why I enjoy your well researched and documented responses. And, Tracy, thank you.
When I saw Creighton U president, Fr. Lannon, chumming it up with Buffett, I wanted to puke. Is Lannon stupid or is he just all about the money? Would he so honor a racist?
Fr. Lannon loves diversity and Buffett
“Fr.” Lannon will “enjoy” his place in Hell unless he repents!
May God have mercy on an amoral Amerika!
Viva Cristo Rey!

Buffet is a cold man who uses his billions to promote evil.
Weitz is a vicious con-artist who will be heavily rewarded by her political soul mate, Warren Buffett.
Thank you for publishing this – I have been following the Buffet Foundation’s collaboration with Bill and Melinda Gates to address “population issues” – But, I did not know of this new hire and her generous salary.
I continue to be grateful to Cal Catholic Daily for bringing news that no one else has. It is my “go-to” every morning.
Anti life. Anti gospel values. Selling one’s God-given talents to oppose the Creator is nothing that I would call “stellar.”
Regarding Rev. Timothy Lannon,S.J. and his gueat Warren Buffet. “Birds of a feather flock together.” And…”Money talks but seldom tattles.” What a terrible example Rev. Lannon is setting for his students at the University of Creighton.
Egads, this pro-killing abortion zealot is so typical of this thoroughly dark and increasingly evil 21st century, and to complete the package, she’s lesbian as well. What could be more “perfect”? This human monster should be behind lunatic asylum walls, drooling onto herself in a padded cell, but more likely she’s being feted by more of those who are just as deranged , just as loony, as she is. Shades of the looney tunes characters in “The Loved One”, by Evelyn Waugh, both a great book and movie. But that’s what’s happened to the century in which we now live. THE INMATES HAVE TOTAL CONTROL OF THE ASYLUM! And they mean to make those of us who are still sane become just like they are, OR ELSE! It’s almost like the other classic movie done in the 50’s AND the ‘seventies, “Invasion of the Body Snatchers.” We’ve been taken over by those who are consumed by the desire to make us “feel good about ourselves” by turning us into ‘boiling frogs’ who WILL accept total conformity to their atheism and secularism on steroids or be consigned to brainwashing sessions, “death panels” or, maybe eventually, being forced into boxcars for the excursion to the “final solution.” Can’t you just FEEL IT COMING? Or maybe not. Maybe the Independents, Tea Partiers or Republicans will come riding to the rescue combined, and SAVE OUR BACON through the exercise @ the ballot box, as Reince Priebus, head of the Republican Party assures Amerika, as he recently opined that the 2014 mid-terms elections looks like a “tsunami”, sweeping Repubs back into the Senate and the House. The glass is half-full again! Or, maybe God will just complete the CHASTISEMENT He allowed to start @ the election of the demonic Obama, and we’ll see for ourselves what the statement in the Bible really means, i.e., “The Wages of sin are Death.” Holy Jesus and Blessed Mary, protect us. God bless, Markrite
Markrite… Being a lesbian who promotes abortion is NOT perfect. It is very imperfect as is anyone’s regardless of their sexual orientation.
Everyone must be wrong: Weitz and Plumb love their dogs. They must be good people.
Of course, Steve, because being pro-PETA is what matters most. Go ahead and off Aunt Maybelle if you’d like or even tiny Tim – you may have your understandable reasons – but Fido is off limits.
