The chief of a national organization for obstetricians and gynecologists is being compared to the “flat-earthers” for her claim that abortion is “settled science” and will not be debated.
The opinion comes from Maureen Phillips, the president of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, who refused an invitation to debate abortion, on whether it should be considered a good medical practice.
Phipps said the issue will not be debated.
“Rather,” she claimed, “we will continue to affirm that the role of abortion in our patients’ lives is settled science.”
Dr. Christina Francis, the president of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists, which had issued the debate invitation, commented in a report in the Washington Examiner.
Francis said, in the report, that those who think “settled science” can apply to most issues in medicine “probably need to get out of medicine.”
“Saying something is settled science hearkens back to people being so confident that the Earth was flat that they considered that settled science,” Francis told the Examiner, “and the only way that we discovered that that wasn’t the case was through someone questioning that narrative, questioning that status quo, and looking for better answers.”

Francis also noted that the vast majority of OBGYNs do not provide abortion services.
The “settled science” opinion “also clearly ignores the vast majority of the medical evidence out there that shows that elective abortions do not improve the health outcomes of our patients, and in many cases, actively worsen the health outcomes. What ACOG is trying to do is make it appear that all OBGYNs feel this way, when that’s very clearly not the case,” she said.
The ACOG does have on its website instructions for reporters on what language it allows on the abortion arguments, warning them against using “elective abortion” or “fetal heartbeat.”
IMPORTANT NOTE: Although millions of American parents send their precious children off to public school every day, imagining their kids’ days will be filled with reading, writing, arithmetic, science, history, sports and music, they’re not only in for a shock – but for total BETRAYAL. Today’s “public” (government) schools have become far-left ideological, political and religious indoctrination centers aimed at reprogramming and transforming America’s children.
Kids are being taught to HATE their own country and to see themselves and their parents as racists – or victims of racists. They are sexualized and corrupted, and many are groomed into the dark LGBT world, with almost 6,000 schools prohibiting parents from even hearing about their child’s transgender “transition.” In between all the far-left indoctrination and sexual corruption, teachers take time to scare children to death about the near-term end of life on earth due to “catastrophic climate change.” Another lie. But it’s all classic Marxism/communism, with even the “3 R’s” – reading, writing and arithmetic – now being corrupted with “woke,” “1984”-style madness.
Perhaps never has the true threat of today’s U.S. public school system been exposed as in the sensational April issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE GREATEST BETRAYAL: How Marxism and madness have taken over America’s public school system.” Whistleblower is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
