Melissa Harris-Perry Calls Teaching How To Perform Abortions ‘A Basic Core Skill’

MSNBC host and former Tulane University professor Melissa Harris-Perry said something truly moronic about abortion. She called learning about it in medical school, “a basic core skill.”

According to, Harris-Perry started her rant lamenting the gains pro-lifers have made this year across the country.

Harris-Perry then turned to Physicians for Reproductive Health consulting medical director Dr. Anne Davis. Davis also serves as a Columbia University Medical Center associate professor and a contributor at the fanatically pro-abortion site RH Reality Check.

“Anne, so now you just can’t learn the medical stuff at the medical school,” Harris-Perry lamented.

Davis said of the “unfortunate turn of events” that “Abortion is a core fundamental skill that we teach our residents,” Davis said. “My professors taught me, I teach my residents, it’s really a core part of the curriculum. So to say that we can’t teach core skills to residents and students is really disturbing.”

Harris-Perry caught on to Davis’ “core” language and prodded, “Help people understand why it’s a core skill, why it’s important for physicians to know it.”

Harris-Perry is best known for wearing tampon earrings on air in July 21, 2013.
