Tax dollars at work: U. of California campus offers online abortion propaganda course

October 14, 2014

It’s not a course on how to do an abortion. It’s a course on how to love an abortion:

Each week’s lectures will incorporate the stories of women who seek abortion in order to better portray abortion significance and rationale.  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.

Don’t know much biology? No problem!

While a basic knowledge of public health terminology may be helpful, there are no specific prerequisites.

Plus–it’s a gut!

Learners should plan to spend 3-5 hours of time on this course each week.  This time will include 2 to 2½ hours for video lectures, 30 minutes for reading, and 30 minutes to 1 hour for assessments.

Here’s part of the syllabus:

WEEK 1: Introduction and Abortion around the World

  • Introduction to the public-health framework of this course

  • Who has abortions, why, and how do they access care

  • History of abortion and abortion stigma

***

  • WEEK 4: Obstacles to Accessing Safe Abortion in the US and Worldwide
    • Who has abortions after the first trimester and how do they access care
    • Clinical aspects of abortion after the first trimester
    • Role of patient preference in appropriate care
    • Complications and myths about abortion

    WEEK 5: Overcoming Obstacles to Abortion Access

    • Sociology of abortion especially related to health and health-care disparities
    • Impact of obstacles on clinical care
    • Importance of abortion training for health professionals

Top tax-dollar priority: more abortions.
