Professor Fired After Inviting Abortion Doula to Class

Catholic University of America fired a professor after she invited an abortion doula to a lecture.

“The speaker identified herself as an ‘abortion doula’ and she advocated for abortion, for language that distorts the distinctions between the sexes, and for the normalizing of transgender births,” university president Peter Kilpatrick wrote.

“While we were unable to confirm what exactly was said in the class, we did determine that the speaker’s views on life issues and on the anthropology of the human person were not consistent with our mission and identity as a faithful Catholic university, and that she should not be allowed to address the class again.”

“Now that we have clear evidence that the content of the class did not align with our mission and identity, we have now terminated our contract with the professor who invited the speaker,” he added.

Psychology lecturer Melissa Goldberg invited the doula, Rachel Carbonneau, to the class.

The abortion doula used terms such as “birthing person” and “seahorse births,” or births had by a woman who believes herself to be a man,” The Daily Signal reported.

One student asked Carbonneau to clarify the terms, prompting the doula to describe working with “trans clients.”

“I have some men who have given birth; it’s amazing, we call it seahorse birth. It’s lovely, especially when it’s a water birth; it’s fantastic,” the doula said. She added that the idea of “pregnant men” should be normalized.

“I think just normalizing it, right? Using the gender-neutral language, talking about pregnant men as pregnant people, pregnant women, pregnant men, pregnant humans,” Carbonneau stated.
