Collect 'em, Trade 'em, Murder 'em!
Quite possibly with a festive feeling in the air of a Baseball Card/Memorabilia Convention, the Jesuits of the University of Sham Francisco are hosting the “Global Women's Rights Forum”.
Here's some of the article from The California Catholic Daily; (Emphasis mine)
Abortionfest at USF
Abortion providers, facilitators, defenders to speak at Jesuit university’s ‘Women’s Rights Forum’
The University of San Francisco, a Jesuit institution, will host the “Global Women's Rights Forum” from today through Thursday, March 11. The forum is sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences, the Leo T. McCarthy Center for Public Service and the Common Good, the Sociology Colloquium, the School of Nursing, the Politics Department, the Gender and Sexuality Studies Department, and curiously, the Theology and Religious Studies Department.
The three speakers at the forum’s Wednesday event, “Bringing Home the right to Health: Critical Interventions in Women's Health Care,” are Lori Freedman, visiting scholar at the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences and the Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health at UCSF; Destiny Lopez, executive director, ACCESS, Oakland; and Eve Zaritsky, a physician at Oakland Kaiser, and the medical director of the Women's Community Clinic, San Francisco.
At UCSF, Professor Freedman works as a research associate at the ANSIRH (Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Heath) think tank. ANSIRH’s “Later Abortion” Web page says: “This website is dedicated to the memory and spirit of Dr. Tiller and is a resource for women, clinicians, researchers and journalists who want to learn more about later abortion care.” The reference is to notorious partial-birth abortionist Dr. George Tiller who was murdered in 2009. ANSIRH spearheaded the “Second Trimester Abortion Initiative” which “…promotes a strategic vision for securing access to and provision of second trimester abortion care in the United States,” and provides a list of clinics that provide what they call “Later Abortion.”
The forum will be held at USF’s Fromm Center. All events are free and open to the public.
I'm sure there are a few Jesuits that are still Catholic. The Law of Averages demands it.
