The following comes from an Oct. 7 posting on LifeSiteNews.
For thousands of years, doctors said they would “do no harm” in the Hippocratic Oath but starting October 13, the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) will launch the first online course to instruct medical students to cause harm to the most innocent of human beings — the unborn.
“‘Abortion: Quality care and public health implications’ is the first online course to disseminate high quality, compassionate abortion education around the world,” said UCSF in a public statement provided to LifeSiteNews. “This course seeks to engage learners around the world in a thoughtful, insightful and objective discussion on abortion education and best practices, thereby improving maternal health around the globe.”
According to the statement, “this free course will provide expert teaching on abortion from faculty at UCSF, the Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health, and Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health” for a period of six weeks. During that time, “faculty and learners will explore abortion from clinical, public health, and sociological perspectives.”
However, the course syllabus indicates the instruction will not solely focus on the medical field. In Week 1, students will learn about the “history of abortion and abortion stigma,” while in Week 3 “legislative and policy obstacles to abortion access” will be examined. Week 5 will exclusively focus on “overcoming obstacles to abortion care.”
According to Donna Harrison, M.D., executive director of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists, “a major concern with this online abortion education is how this course will be used.”
“Non-physicians taking the course may learn the rhetoric of abortion,” said Harrison, “but they will not be trained in the surgical management of the complications which injure or kill women after abortions.” In 2013, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a law that allowed non-physicians to conduct abortions….

Several things: (1) notwithstanding the State law, there may be legal issues with having such a course, which could open this approach up to attack; and, (2) Dr. Harrison is correct, the course does not appear to teach about the medical issues surrounding abortion (although you will learn all the right words). CA trial lawyers will have a field day with the numerous botched abortions yet to come under this new law. (Of course, the abortion industry will then try to obtain legislative caps for the mis-application of their torture chambers.)
Even though unspeakably evil, the answers here likely come not from trying to outlaw abortions, for that is sure to fail, but in educating the young, and all women, particularly. The Pro-life movement has grown tremendously, with its great strength being among the young. That much continue, as well as the demand that women actually know what is inside of them before they chose to kill. Society, many believe, has at least that much of a right.
Most importantly, UC alum (and there are many of us) should look into their souls before giving money to the almas. If it moves many of you to stop, send along a letter to the University of CA Regents. Also, take all steps to seek ways to make public your withholding of funds to the school. Money absolutely will make them pay attention; it is likely the only way.
They forgot a few classes. How to wait to the last minute to call an ambulance when the patient’s life is in danger. How to ignore cries of the emotionally distressed woman. How to ignore your emotions and respect for life when looking at the aborted baby. Falsifying ages of girls and hiding cases of sexual abuse. How to flip off the pro-life vigil and still maintain control of your luxury car. How to keep telling yourself that somebody has to do it and the money is worth it.
Why not sponsor a course in how to de- fund universities that defy the sanctity of human life?
In the absence of such a course, why not list Satan as a member of the Board of Directors of any such university that utterly disrespects human life?
Who pulls the strings at these universities?
God help the fools who sponsor such evil courses! They will need to remove the blinders from their eyes, and repent of their wicked ways.
Our society is GONE! The barbarians have taken over, and are forcing their evil and demonic ways upon us all. Western civilization is quickly dying, and pagan practices are becoming the norm. Unfortunately there is no St. John the Baptist to tell us to reform our lives, and to prepare ourselves for God. The deafening silence also comes from the Church, who is doing all in her power to increase membership by allowing sinful life styles, and not judging the wrongdoer, and not trying to convert or adminish the sinner. Satan is winning, without a single shot being fired. May God have mercy on us, and may Our Lady shield and guide us during this painful purification, where the goats are being seperated from the lambs. Let us hope that all the readers of CALCATHOLIC will be among the lambs.
The Church needs her leaders, starting with the Pope, to begin a strong education in Catholic Faith and Morals, for everyone, as they used to do! They need to have a strong faith in God, and a strong commitment, to this endeavor! Church leaders all should ignore the ignorant, sinful, secular world– and let God lead the way! The secular world’s evil, ignorant opinions, do not count! All the people need to be taught Christ’s Truth, and strongly shepherded, by he Church, straight to Heaven’s door! This “fallen world,” full of sin and rebellion– has NO IDEA, about anything at all! The Pope and his bishops need to “take the bull by the horns!” And also, excommunicate unrepentant sinners– such as, MURDERERS! ABORTIONISTS!! This is a BIG RESPONSIBILITY! And the Catholic Church has FAILED to do her job, for Christ!
Columnist Mike Adams makes good points – but fails to mention the Connection between the Dyke Coven and the ‘progressive’ pogrom for Aborting Male Babies – such as is a theme of the annual tax subsidized Anti-Male Hate Riot / SF Dyke March:

Strategies for destroying sperm are promoted: “the male sperm – had been poured down the sink” because:
“It was essential that I have a girl… I was profoundly disappointed. I wept. I sobbed… it brought up in me a frightening rage at the patriarchy.”
Anyone with half a brain knows that lesbians are the least likely women in society to need abortions. Or birth control. And what any of that has to do with the Dyke March is beyond sane discourse.
