This week, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) is holding an annual conference.

ACOG nationnal meeting 2015 May

The event entitled: Teaming up for women’s health is being held in San Francisco, Ca. May 2-6th.

It is no surprise that ACOG endorses abortion.

While I am not at the conference, a series of tweets under the #ACOG2015 and #ACOG15 hashtags and also on the group’s twitter page, show support for Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger as well as abortion.

In addition, conference speakers appear to show support for the forced abortion/birth control mandate under ObamaCare:

Abortion will be a topic according to the ACOG’s itinerary:

    Spontaneous, complete, incomplete abortion (1st and 2nd trimester) (27)Congenital anomalies (reproductive tract)

    The Society of Family Planning will be hosting a three hour session that will highlight new research and clinical practice issues related to contraception, abortion, STIs, sexuality, and how to translate the best evidence into clinical practice.

    According to the group, “This course will review medical management of early pregnancy loss and abortion protocols, pain management, and complications.”

According to ACOG’s final program guide Prager’s abortion class :

    This course will review medical management of early pregnancy loss and abortion protocols, pain management,
    and complications.
    At the end of this course, the participant should be able to:

Also in their final program guide is this class on late term abortion:

And, the National Abortion Federation (NAF) weighed in:

An attendee of the ACOG event posted this, “Starting the day with abortion provider and teacher Anne Davis of Physicians for Reproductive Choice discussing the history of reproductive health access. Lovely nod to Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood already!”

Sanger was an avowed eugenicist who spoke to the Klan and advocated forced sterilization of those she deemed unworthy.

Today, Planned Parenthood’s top award is still named after her.
