A University of San Diego School of Medicine professor was caught on camera “teaching” students that a human fetus is a “legitimate parasite” that “invades” its mother and “manipulates” her immunity. The lecture was delivered as part of an Evolution of Human Disease course described as focusing on “how diseases have shaped humans and how humans have shaped disease over time.” The professor later backtracked in an email to students after the story went viral. Lest we forget, these Ivory Tower ideologues are paid with taxpayer dollars.

In a class taught at the University of San Diego, a professor used a slide that referred to the human fetus as a “legitimate parasite” that “invades” its mother and “manipulates” her immunity.
As Fox News reported, the lecture, reportedly part of the UC San Diego School of Medicine course, Evolution of Human Disease, “explores the major epidemiological transitions from ape-like ancestors to foraging tribes, farmers and pastoralists, to the global metropolitan primate we now are. We focus on how diseases have shaped humans and how humans have shaped disease over time.”
The screenshot of the slide was sent to Dylan Griswold, a medical student at Stanford University, who tweeted it out:
The professor who allegedly showed the slide reportedly emailed the class an explanation: “Most of you probably realize that my point was to show that mammals are especially prone to invasive cancers because mammals evolved invasive placentation.
