U. of California offers first ever course on killing babies

Jennifer Kabanny writes for The College Fix, Oct. 9, 2014:
The University of California – San Francisco will launch an online abortion course this Monday, an Internet class being hailed as the first of its kind.
The course will delve into “clinical aspects of medication abortion, aspiration abortion, post-abortion contraception, and pain management for abortion,” as well as topics such as the history of abortion, “abortion stigma,” complications and counseling, its outline states.
“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, told The Daily Beast, which first reported on the class, noting an estimated 3,000 people have signed up so far.
The free, six-week class, titled “Abortion: Quality Care and Public Health Implications,” is offered through the university’s partnership with Coursera, an educational technology company that joins forces with universities to offer a wide variety of Massive Open Online Courses. While it is designed for “any clinician, physician, health care worker or student who will care for women of reproductive age,” it’s open to anyone.
“Each week’s lectures will incorporate the stories of women who seek abortion in order to better portray abortion significance and rationale,” its outline states. “Other topics will include a brief history of abortion, the clinical aspects of medication and procedural abortions in and after the first trimester, an overview of patient-centered abortion-care, the basics of abortion counseling, the professional obligations of health care practitioners to ensure that women have access to safe abortion care, and the maze of restrictions that make safe abortion care inaccessible to many women.”
The class has been hailed by left-leaning news outlets as revolutionary and vital because, they claim, access to abortion for women is very difficult, an allegation blamed largely on “a U.S. educational system that ignores the frequency of abortion, producing health care providers who have no formal training in abortion care,” as the Beast’s Samantha Allen put it.
Her report cited a 2005 review of U.S. medical school curricula that found “less than a third of schools include a single lecture focused on abortion during the clinical years.”
Prolife advocates see things differently.
In response to news of the course, Donna Harrison, executive director of the American Association of Pro-life Obstetricians and Gynecologiststold WORLD magazine that “obstetricians and gynecologists refuse to do abortions because they choose to adhere to the Hippocratic Oath, not because their education didn’t cover abortions.”
And National Right To Life’s Randall O’Bannon, its director of education and research, stated the reason most medical schools and med students shun learning how to perform abortions is because they “recognize that abortion is the killing of human beings.”
He also questioned the outcome of the course, saying it’s unclear whether students actually expect to be able to perform an abortion after taking the class.
“Chemical methods, some involving drugs available by mail ordered over the internet, others using drugs developed as anti-ulcer medications … can be used (quite dangerously) by the women themselves or by lightly trained medical personnel,” O’Bannon states.
Students who finish the course will earn a certificate, and “AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credits” are expected to be given to practicing physicians and other health professionals who complete the class, its outline states.

Dr. Jody Steinauer is an associate professor of ObGyn (pronounced by President Ebola as “oh bee guy nee”) and reproductive science at UCSF’s School of Medicine. Her list of publications reveals her interests and priorities to be almost entirely fixated on abortion killing of the unborn. They include:

  • “Vaginal Hysterectomy as a Viable Option for Female-to-Male Transgender Men,” in Obstet Gynecol. 2014 May; 123 Suppl 1:104S.
  • “Time to stand up for abortion providers,” JAMA. 1994 Nov 2; 272(17):1378.
  • “Legislating abortion care,” Virtual Mentor. 2014; 16(4):265-9.
  • Many journal articles on whether and how internists in medical schools are getting training in performing abortion, such as “Obstacles to the integration of abortion into obstetrics and gynecology practice,” Perspect Sex Reprod Health. 2010 Sep; 42(3):146-51; and “How available is abortion training?,” Fam Plann Perspect. 2001 Mar-Apr; 33(2):88-9.
  • At least 6 journal articles on second-trimester abortions.

  1. Hey if the student is learning this at UC and follows it,that will be less communist democratic voters.

    • True but God’s anger grows with each life aborted. This is the result of 50 years of socialist public education teaching kids we are nothing but animals, no better than snails

  2. Is Steinauer any relation to Mengele?

  3. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this significant post. What a fascinating purpose in life for Dr. Jody: to teach women how to kill children. I wonder how this individual sleeps at night, or does she?

  4. Population control made popular…going against God’s commandments made popular. Unfortunately, people aren’t taught to think for themselves anymore and use rational thought and discern right from wrong based upon the word of God. People are taught that media is god, politicians are god, government is god….and to nary question this triune god but accept these liars as the new truth. I pray God have mercy on us all…because we NEED it.

  5. “increase access”….”decrease stigma”…the left are all about the language. They can try to change it’s meaning but the results are the same – killing babies. Disgusting.

  6. Our tax dollars at work. The Gigantic Left Wing Freak Show, that controls California, marches on!

  7. Again I say that America is under Judgment, and, a number of women are going to die because of this. Hasn’t any public official or minister or bishop—ANYBODY???—commented on this is any way?

  8. Dear Dr. Eowyn,
    You have forgotten to mention that this course is brought to us by Satan and that the best students will receive, by completion of the course, a one-way ticket to hell.

  9. And just look at the “good doctor” . . . she looks like someone our of a freak show!

    • You’ve heard the saying ‘misery loves company’? I bet she had an abortion or abortions and feels so guilty for it instead of repenting she encourages others to follow suit because she is a follower of society and not God and believes she is in the right. Another case of the spiritually ignorant living in denial.

  10. Dr, Jody Steinauer looks exactly as you would expect a person involved in these types of atrocities to look. I think evil comes out in the face

  11. Comparing this to your ebola/false flag report, I see a number of synchronicities, so to speak. This (alleged human being) doctor is going to teach this course on how to perform abortions. Well, she’s doing this at institutional approval.
    She will teach women how to abort their babies, They in turn will abort their friends’ babies. There will be abortion parties. Children and neighbors will see and hear things. Hearsay will fly and people will form their own reactions. A new Culture will emerge. It will be no mere Culture of Death; It will be a culture of extinction.
    There will be no movie hints. The Simpsons will not have any episodes about it. Rather, people—INCLUDING CHILDREN—will come to see abortion as a POSITIVE MORAL GOOD, and no mere bad choice that one was shoehorned into.
    And now we have a “synchronicity” of sorts. Where is God in all of this? Well, we’re already under Judgment. But God will allow something else to happen: He will abandon us, as a corporate whole called society, to fall prey to this delusion. And Why Not? He has already begged us, repeatedly, to abandon this lie. All to no avail.
    And then we have the Death with “Dignity” problem, the latest illustration of which is a 29 year old lady who plans to kill herself on November 1st. (England and the Netherlands already practice involuntary euthanasia, and hospitals and doctors get bonuses for their numbers).
    The word “apocalypse” means unveiling. (At least that’s what I heard). The MORAL Apocalypse comes BEFORE Armageddon. It’s happening now, in slow-motion. The evils have already unfolded and are unfolding—the trick is to catch them, to see them. Not to worry: The mainstream news media is already concealing them!
    But I don’t want to be accused of being a tinfoil hat wearer….
