UC-San Francisco Medical Prof Aims to Create a Floating Abortion Clinic

UC-San Francisco Medical Prof Aims to Create a Floating Abortion Clinic

“surgical abortions up to 14 weeks”

This situation is really bringing out the creativity of the academic left.

Campus Reform reports:

CA medical professor wants to create a floating abortion clinic

A University of California San Fransisco (UCSF) medical professor plans to create a floating abortion clinic in the Gulf of Mexico.

Dr. Meg Autry, Gynecology Professor at UCSF, told the Associated Press on July 10 that the clinic should be located off the coast of Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama, due to abortion bans that have taken effect in those states since the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

To accomplish this, Autry is raising funds through her non-profit PRROWESS, short for “Protecting Reproductive Rights Of Women Endangered by State Statutes.”

According to the PRROWESS website, the floating clinic will offer “surgical abortions up to 14 weeks,” contraception, and “on site testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs).”

The marine clinic will also “have helicopter access for transport and emergencies.”

Campus Reform reached out to Dr. Autry to get her perspective on the project.

“I believe we are expecting legal challenges at all steps along the way including the premise of legality as well as criminalizing patients and providers.  We have done extensive research and are ready to implement once we have the funding to acquire a vessel,” Autry wrote.

PRROWESS believes that it would be easier for residents of these southern states to travel to the ocean than drive or fly to states where abortion is legal.

The country has to “create options and be thoughtful and creative to help people in restrictive states get the health care they deserve,” Autry explained to the Associated Press.

The Louisiana Department of Health, however, states that complications of surgical abortions are severe and include pelvic infection, blood clots, future child-bearing challenges, and long-term medical risks.

Problem is the helicopters have to land somewhere in the states where abortions are prohibited. I don’t know transportation law at all, however the harebrained professor’s idiotic idea has more holes than a two ton Swiss cheese.

A floating Auschwitz? That’s what I’d call a “torpedo magnet.”

The abortion enthusiasm is strong in the San Franciscans.

Maybe the constant smell of human feces has pushed the over the edge…

It’s easier to travel on land further than the Gulf to a blue state than to helicopter to the ocean for a “boat clinic”.

Why are these people so stupid?

    As you pointed out, it would be easier to just pay for women wanting an abortion to fly to an actual clinic in San Francisco. I could run the program out of a simple office with a small staff. No boat, no helicopters, no weird legal bullshit, and no other God knows what unexpected complications to deal with. The complete idiocy of this idea is truly hard to believe.
