Not a doctor but interested in performing abortions? California, there you go!

From today's WorldNet Daily:

A state senator in California is planning to start asking some hard questions after his staff uncovered a "pilot project" concealed within a gerontology program originally launched in 1973 that is being used to train nurse midwives and physicians assistants to perform "suction aspiration" surgical abortion procedures.


In a website commentary about his discoveries, Aanestad said it apparently was begun in 2006 without legislative oversight and involves the state and several foundations contributing financially to the "pilot program" at Planned Parenthood abortion businesses in three cities.

He said not only has the abortion-training program been concealed behind a "pregnancy care" label, state regulations have been suspended in order to allow "Nurse Midwives, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants" to do procedures for which they would not ordinarily be considered qualified.

The rationale?

Planned Parenthood mouthpiece Mitzi Sales says the project's goal is to "increase women's access to safe reproductive health care, " "integrate abortion care into current practice settings," [whatever that means] and "create more providers in a lot of the underserved areas that need them the most."

"Underserved areas" translates into Hispanic and African-American areas. As Senator Sam Aanestad writes:

At least this doublespeak is consistent with the stated goals of Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger: "Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race." (Woman, Morality, and Birth Control, New York Publishing Company, 1922.)

"The undeniably feebleminded should indeed, not only be discouraged but prevented from propagating their kind," she wrote in 1921, the year she founded the organization that became Planned Parenthood."

In plain English? Physicians willing to abort children are getting old. Abortion-lovers are so passionate about killing that they're eager to replace them with anyone willing to pick up a vacuum and do the dirty work. And Californians are footing the bill for it.
