OCTOBER 7, 2016

An unofficial abortion-rights group at a Catholic university hosted a “papaya workshop” last month that showed students how to perform abortions using a tropical fruit.


Students laughed as a Loyola University Chicago medical student apparently guided another student through a mock abortion, as seen in video posted by Students for Reproductive Justice on Facebook.

“Ooh!” the student exclaims as a papaya seed gets sucked into the tube. Several more seeds are visible on the table in the video – previous “abortions.”

Aspiration abortion uses suction to end a pregnancy up to 10 weeks, and it’s “very similar to sucking the seeds out of a papaya!” the Facebook post reads.

The workshop’s goal was to “destigmatize abortion in general” and show that it’s a “simple medical procedure.” Another mock-abortion workshop is scheduled for next semester.

Students for Reproductive Justice isn’t just giving students a preview of their future careers in abortion. It’s showing them how to lobby for policy change, recently convincing the Loyola administration to remove pro-life resources from the campus Wellness Center.

Its next goal: getting the Catholic university to provide free abortion pills on campus.

‘Medically inaccurate information’

The abortion-rights group celebrated its victory last week, changing the cover photo on its Facebook page.

It reads: “WE WON!!! The Loyola Wellness Center has removed the crisis pregnancy center Aid for Women from the resources on their website.” It claims that Aid for Women offers “medically inaccurate information” on abortion.
