University Uses Papayas As 'Fun' Way To Teach Performing Abortions


The University of California San Francisco (UCSF) by way of the Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health are preparing students to have, what they call, “fun” performing abortion procedures.

The UCSF abortion program features a “Papaya Workshop” which “engagingly teaches manual vacuum aspiration, IUD placement, and other gynecologic skills, using papayas as uterine models.”

The website distracts readers away from the reality of what abortion really is by claiming they use “a fun an inexpensive model to innovatively teach intrauterine procedures to health students or clinicians.” They gloss over the fact that abortion is literally ending the life of an unborn baby. They avoid the reality that when an abortion is performed, you will encounter actual human body parts and blood in the process. 

“The workshop is easily adapted to various skill levels and settings,” the website states. “Alternate fruits can also be used. In low-resource settings, this inexpensive teaching tool is ideal, especially for teaching the skill of manual vacuum aspiration, an essential procedure where electricity is limited.”

In the promo video for the training program the organization pitches the idea of abortion as if it is the most helpful (and needed) procedure for women. They even add relaxing music as if to deceive viewers to what they are really preparing students to do.

“The importance of safe abortion to women’s health around the world can’t be overemphasized,” Dr. Philip Darney, Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology at San Francisco General Hospital creepily said. “We wanted to find a good way to train residents and students in this technique [uterine aspiration].” 

The most disturbing thing about the videos is that the doctors seem so excited at the idea of teaching someone how “fun” it is to end an unborn life. They're trying to paint a horrid practice in an acceptable light and that is what you call “messed up” but these people quite obviously don’t care.
