Planned Parenthood Uses Papayas to Train Nurses How to Kill Babies in Abortions

A Planned Parenthood branch in Connecticut is training nurse practitioners and midwives to abort unborn babies with a papaya standing in for the uterus and its seeds the unborn baby.

The papaya abortion training by Planned Parenthood of Southern New England took place this summer after the Connecticut legislature passed a law allowing nurse midwives, physician assistants and advanced practice registered nurses to do first-trimester surgical abortions, according to the CT Mirror.

Despite warnings from medical groups and research showing increased safety risks, 15 states now allow non-doctors to abort unborn babies.

The purpose of an abortion is to kill an unborn baby, but the two Connecticut nurses who participated in the recent training program started out practicing on papayas.

According to the Mirror, Dr. Nancy Stanwood, chief medical officer for the Planned Parenthood branch, led the training, showing the nurses how to use a dilator, metal tools and a manual vacuum aspirator to go through the neck of the papaya and into the middle to suck out the contents of the fruit.

Stanwood said women usually wait two weeks for a first-trimester surgical abortion in Connecticut, and they hope the new law and training will reduce the wait time.

“My goal is for us to have a robust workforce of physicians and clinicians who are ready, willing and able to provide care for people who need an aspiration abortion,” she told the newspaper. “… We don’t want to over-train. But my goal is to have the workforce that we need, so patients don’t have the current wait time that they do, which is really a pain point for us.”

Here’s more from the report:

The instruction requires time in a classroom and in the clinic. The trainees typically perform the procedure 30 to 40 times with Stanwood nearby before continuing on their own.

Patients can choose if they want to be part of the training.

Another abortion facility, Hartford GYN Center in Bloomfield, also plans to begin training nurses to abort unborn babies later this year, according to the report.

These trainings are occurring despite concerns from the Connecticut State Medical Society and others about increased risks to women seeking abortions.

“We head down the slippery slope to allowing those procedures that are in fact surgical to be done by mid-level providers, creating patient safety concerns and significant scope of practice issues,” the Connecticut State Medical Society told state lawmakers before the bill passed.

A 2013 California study found that abortions done by non-physicians were twice as likely to have complications as those done by licensed physicians.

Allowing nurses to abort unborn babies is one of the ways the abortion industry hopes to prop up its life-destroying business. Abortion rates are dropping and abortion clinics have been closing, in part, because fewer doctors are willing to abort unborn babies.
