Reproductive Health?

This is the opening paragraph to an article I just read from LifeNews.com (http://www.lifenews.com/state4423.html):
Washington University has joined forces with Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Planned Parenthood of St. Louis to train abortionists. It is called the Family Planning Fellowship Program, and its stated goal is to "develop tomorrow's leaders in reproductive health."

The last two words made me stop and think: "Shouldn't reproductive health involve reproduction?"

Cardiovascular health involves helping a heart pump blood throughout the vascular system. Any doctor that intentionally stops a cardiovascular system is not engaging in cardiovascular health, but murder.

Reproductive health involves helping the reproduction of human life. Any doctor that intentionally stops the reproduction process is not engaging in reproductive health. If a life is aborted, murder is committed.
