MSNBC Host: Force Med Students to Perform Abortions

Calling abortion a “basic core skill” that medical students should be forced to learn in order to graduate, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry suggests that force is the only way to make sure doctors have the skills needed to perform abortions going forward – especially when the government decrees “abortion on demand” as ObamaCare begins to show its true self.

During an April 11 appearance on MSNBC’s “Lean Forward” program, Harris-Perry questioned Dr. Anne Davis, consulting medical director for the pro-abortion group Physicians for Reproductive Health about state legislation that would prohibit the “basic core skill” of abortion at state medical schools

Harris-Perry and Davis described abortion education as a “core part” or a “core skill” no less than five times during the five-minute interview. Harris-Perry began the conversation about recent pro-life advances saying:

“We’re not even one-third of the way through 2015 and already more than 330 provisions to restrict access to reproductive services have been proposed.”

One proposal unnerving Harris-Perry is North Carolina’s House Bill 465 – legislation that would clarify & modify the state’s abortion laws to prevent state medical schools from “perform[ing] or supervis[ing] the performance of” abortions. If passed at the state level, it would be hard for ObamaCare dictators in Washington, DC to order a procedure that doctors are not trained to perform.

Harris-Perry reacted angrily by saying:

“If that bill is enacted, the implication for our medical system could be unprecedented.”

Students should learn to perform abortions in medical school because it is a “basic core skill,” regardless of whether or not that student will be specializing in anything related to the gynecological field.

The tide has decidedly turned against the abortion industry in recent years as more and more pro-life legislators are being elected to state and local office and then using their clout to pass laws tightening restrictions on clinics that perform abortions – something that is well within the right of states to do.

In retaliation and typical fashion, the Left is resorting to force to make sure doctors know how to perform abortions at all stages of gestation – from the “morning after pill” before a baby implants itself in the mother’s uterine lining to partial birth abortion of a live baby.

This use of force would also extend to all medical disciplines including everything from family practice doctors to neurologists, podiatrists, endocrinologists, psychiatrists – you name it. And there would be no exceptions for medical students with religious objections or those that simply find abortion to be morally reprehensible.
