[Alana Mastrangelo | Breitbart] A professor at the University of California San Diego compared unborn children to cancer in a slide presentation for an upper-level biology course on the “evolution of human disease.” In a slide presentation shared by a Stanford Medical student, the professor appears to describe a fetus as a “legitimate parasite” that “rapidly grows” and “invades” the mother.
The course, entitled “Evolution of Human Disease,” is taught by professor Pascal Gagneux at the UC San Diego School of Medicine, aiming to “explore the major epidemiological transitions from ape-like ancestors to foraging tribes, farmers and pastoralists, to the global metropolitan primate we now are. We will focus on how diseases have shaped humans and how humans have shaped disease over time.”
The professor’s class presentation went viral on social media after one Stanford Medical student, Dylan Griswold, tweeted an image of the slide appearing to compare unborn children to cancer. “No joke, a friend just sent me this slide from her upper-level biology course,” said Griswold, “I’m speechless.”
“Upper-level UCSD biology course says that a baby in the womb is ‘a legitimate parasite’ that ‘invades’ his/her mother, compares the baby to cancer,” said founder and president of Live Action Lisa Rose on Twitter, “Pregnancy is NOT a disease and a baby is not a parasite. This is dehumanizing & false. Is this the best CA public education can do?”
The slide in question shows an image of a fetus in the womb alongside the words, “The fetus: a legitimate parasite: rapidly grows, invades, manipulates immunity of mother, reshapes blood vessels.” Below that, is an image of cancer cells alongside the words, “The cancer: crashes the party!!! rapidly grows, invades, manipulates immunity, reshapes blood vessels.”
