University of Washington Forces All Med Students to Learn How to Kill Babies in Abortions

The University of Washington in Seattle has a new requirement for its medical residents: They must be willing to kill some of their own patients.

The Washington state university recently began rejecting applications from medical student residents who refuse to kill unborn babies in abortions, according to NBC News.

Abortions do not heal or save lives. Real doctors treat unborn babies as second patients along with their mothers. But pro-abortion groups are pushing the false claim that killing unborn patients is health care, and their dangerous propaganda is seeping into medical training programs.

Until two years ago, the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Washington used to allow pro-life medical residents to opt out of abortion training, NBC reports.

Now its professors believe training pro-life medical students is a “waste” of time.

Here’s more:

… two years ago, as access to teaching hospitals offering abortion training narrowed, UW decided to admit only residents committed to providing abortion care.

“If we live in a state where abortion care is legal, we need to recruit medical students into our program that want to provide abortion care,” said Dr. Alyssa Stephenson-Famy, an associate professor of maternal-fetal medicine in the department. “We should not waste our spots on people not willing to provide abortion.”

Creating a new generation of doctors who believe killing their patients is “care” is part of the billion-dollar abortion industry’s push to legitimize and expand its deadly work. Through medical training programs, politicians, the media and other avenues, the abortion industry has made no secret of its attempts to “normalize” the killing of unborn babies in abortions.

In California, Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom recently introduced budget plans that include $20 million for abortion training scholarships and student loan repayments. Newsom has been working directly with the abortion industry on ways to expand abortions in anticipation of the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade later this year. One of these plans includes bribing medical students to become abortionists with state tax dollars.

Meanwhile, pro-life students who want to become doctors and nurses increasingly are targets of discrimination.

In 2021, Rafael Zaki, a Canadian immigrant who fled religious persecution in Egypt, said he was expelled from a Manitoba medical school after he said he refused to recant his pro-life beliefs. He sued the school, and a judge later ruled in his favor.

In 2020, a British midwife student also had to seek legal help after the University of Nottingham threatened to expel her because she believes that killing unborn babies in abortions is wrong.

In the United States, a pro-life medical student is fighting a similar battle in court with the University of Louisville Medical School in Kentucky. Austin Clark, a young father of two, said the university bullied and harassed him and later expelled him because he was vocal about his pro-life beliefs.

In recent years, Students for Life of America said it has helped numerous pro-life students take legal action against discrimination by their schools.

Many medical doctors also are speaking out for the rights of their unborn patients. Last fall, the Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine, which represents more than 30,000 American medical professionals, urged the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade and support the human rights of all patients.

“In the nearly 50 years since the court wrongly decided Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, medical science has progressed significantly and has increasingly supported the pro-life position,” the alliance said. “It is time that the law of our land caught up with advances in medical science and supported the human rights of all of our patients.”

Since 1973 when Roe was decided, about 63.5 million unborn babies have been killed in abortions.
