ACOG conference speakers give nod to racist Margaret Sanger and promote abortion
This week, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) is holding an annual conference.
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.
Sarah W. Prager, MD from the University of Washington, Seattle, Washington will lead the ACOG class on Medical Management of Spontaneous and Elective Abortion.
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,
At the end of this course, the participant should be able to:
• Review epidemiology of medical abortion
• Review 5 Ws of providing medical abortion: how? Who? What? When? Where?
• Review appropriate patient selection
• Address appropriate post-abortion follow-up
• Discuss complications and how to prevent/manage them
Also in their final program guide is this class on late term abortion:
A Pilot Survey of Abortion Providers’ Knowledge Regarding Third-Trimester Procedures, will be presented Sunday by Jessica Maria Atrio, MD, Montefiore Hospital Einstein School of Medicine, Bronx, NY Mengyang Sun, MD
And this class, The Effect of Clinical Clerkships on Medical Students’ Attitudes Toward Abortion and Contraception
taught by, Elyse Nicole Brock, MD University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Iowa City, IA Abbey J. Hardy-Fairbanks, MD, and Colleen M.
And, the National Abortion Federation (NAF) weighed in:
Dr. Anne Davis Davis is a abortion advocate and served on the board of Physicians for Reproductive Health from 2002 to 2008.
She is now their consulting medical director.
In her speech Davis refers to Planned Parenthood’s racist founder, Margaret Sanger as “The pill advocate”.
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.
Eve Espey, MD, was the 2013 recipient of Physicians for Reproductive Health’s William K. Rashbaum, MD , Abortion Provider Award, which honors physicians who provide, “outstanding abortion services and serves as an inspirational leader for colleagues, residents, and medical students.”
She has a “contraception” video series on ACOG’s website here.
