NEW HAVEN, Connecticut, August 23, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) Ob/gyn residents at Yales School of Medicine must undergo training in abortion procedures in a required residency program established by Planned Parenthoods Connecticut branch (PPC).
Second year ob/gyn residents will have to complete two four-week rotations with PPC for training in abortion techniques such as vacuum suction, medical abortions, and other family planning services in a program entitled Family Planning/Ambulatory Surgery.
"Yale is very satisfied with the experience and training the residents are receiving at PPC and are especially happy with the number of patients the residents see," said Mary Bawza, chief operating officer of PPC to Planned Parenthoods Choice! magazine.
Although the course is required in the residency curriculum, ob/gyn residents do not have to participate in any abortions if they sign a paper that states they believe abortion is against their personal/religious beliefs. However, residents cannot opt of learning the theoretical applications of the program, including techniques related to still-birth, miscarriage, and complications related to abortion. Students also cannot opt out of performing ultrasounds on women intending to have abortions.
PPC established the course last year as part a frantic campaign to replace the imploding and aging population of abortionists, whose numbers have declined 37% since the 1980s. Although worried about their population decline, PPC seems oddly determined to spread their abortion practices deeper into the heartland of the United States claiming studies indicate 87% of US counties and 97% of rural counties have no abortionists.
Comments to Yale may be sent to Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences and the departments Residency Program Coordinator:

So now murder is being called "satisfying."
Murder is now a "requirement" for OB/GYNs.
Training is one thing, performing is another.
I do not see a problem with Yale's policy, given that they are educating future medical professionals:
"... ob/gyn residents do not have to participate in any abortions if they sign a paper that states they believe abortion is against their 'personal/religious' beliefs. However, residents cannot opt of learning the theoretical applications of the program, including techniques related to still-birth, miscarriage, and complications related to abortion. Students also cannot opt out of performing ultrasounds on women intending to have abortions."
The items in bold seem pretty important to know about.
Abortion. Brought to you by Your Tax Dollars.
Agreed. That was my first inclination...
Good God, what a sick ****.
It would seem to me that these have ALWAYS been part of an OB/GYNs training, and I doubt that this was Planned Parenthood's reason for pushing this new program. The intent is clearly to train future abortionists.
How many babies were murdered today.
May God have mercy on us.
Over 3500 babies were slaughtered TODAY in the United States.
But do they perform real abortions as part of the training?
Virtually all of them are surgical emergencies.
Anyone who writes to a Yale professor suggesting that future obstetrical surgeons not be trained in an essential procedure is an ignoramus.
Also, the new generation of academic OB/GYNs are different from the old kindly grandfather types you might remember. A significant majority are now female, and I've met a fair number over the years that were militant, man-hating lesbos, who seemed to revel in extracting as many fetuses from as many wombs as possible. Sounds like they are in charge now at Yale. Imagine the misery a resident at this program will suffer if he exercises his right to conscientious objection.
I am aware that certain procedures have long been part of an OB/GYNs training; however, since this is a new program started at the behest of Planned Parenthood, there is obviously more to it.
These are FEW and FAR between...I cannot come up with a single reason why therapeutic abortion would be medically necessary. Could you enlighten me as to what reasons you could think?
