Eugenics & The Whole Pie

CANBERRA, November 13, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Australian Parliamentary Group on Population and Development has been slammed by Queensland Senator Ron Boswell for holding to Nazi-style eugenic ideology on the abortion of disabled children. “This revisiting of eugenics principles is repugnant to a society that prides itself on the contribution of all,” Boswell said. The pro-abortion group had made a submission, signed by 41 Australian MPs, to the parliamentary committee that is examining the issue of abortion in Australia. The group said paying women a Medicare rebate for second-trimester abortions would save the government about $180,000 a year, due to the high costs of caring for handicapped babies who are allowed to be born. Removing the abortion rebate, the group said, would place “emotional, physical, mental, and financial stress on families, denying women and couples the right to decide if they are equipped to raise a child with disabilities.” According to Christian Today, so far 7 of the MPs whose names were affixed to the submission have disowned its statements about abortion and handicapped children. Boswell heavily criticised the submission, saying that its “underlying premise” is based on eugenic principles that governments should prefer to kill the disabled rather than support them. He said it holds that “some lives are worth less than others because they will cost too much to support.”“This is the kind of thinking that was typical of the Hitler regime. They set themselves up as judge of who deserved to live and who deserves to die.”In the period leading up to the Second World War, the Nazi government of Germany began to implement its eugenics policies, meant to “cleanse” the German people of undesirable “racial traits.” This meant in practice the killing of those children, and later, adults, considered by the state to be genetically defective. Thousands of children and adults who suffered from mental and physical disabilities were starved and gassed to death and killed by lethal injection. More recently, the utilitarian eugenics movement has gained popularity in scientific circles that propose to eliminate undesirable traits by killing those unborn babies, and, increasingly, newborns, who are found to be genetically deficient. Utilitarian philosophers and bioethicists like Princeton University’s Peter Singer, openly advocate for the killing of disabled children in the womb and as newborns. Currently the abortion rate for babies with Down syndrome is estimated to be as high as 95% in many Western countries, indicating that modern utilitarian eugenics is already being implemented on a widespread scale.

I don’t think anyone can seriously argue any longer that our civilization (as we know it) is going to survive.  The definition of “disability” will  change to encompass a wide swath of “undesirables”.  We know which groups are undesirable today, and some of the reasons for abortion are indeed quite revealing as to the depths of depravity western society has fallen.  We also terminate on the other end of the spectrum for equally absurd reasons. We are a society that prides itself on the strong, the attractive, and the powerful.  There isn’t much room for people who fall short of that standard. The problem, however, is that being strong and attractive is a relative idea.  There are always going to be less attractive people and less intelligent people.  So the killing, I assume, will continue until we reach Nirvana, I suppose, or until the Second Coming — which ever comes first.

Anyone with a basic grasp of common decency and common sense can see where all this killing is going to lead.  The problem is that we live in a culture with little of these two qualities but a great deal of cowardice and stupidity.  The stupid people can’t see it because they are drowning in their own sin, and since sin makes us stupid, they are happy to keep the train running right off the cliff.  The other great portion of our society is made up of cowards who can read the writing on the wall but don’t want to rock the boat. They don’t want to say the things that need to be said or do the things that need to be done because they love their position of influence and their money more than they love the truth.  Best to pass the buck and let the next sucker deal with the problem

And then there’s us: a very small remnant who hold out the truth that every single human being from conception to natural death has eternal and intrinsic self-worth and dignity.  No one can morally take away this dignity or presume to enslave others in the pernicious lies that some human beings are worth less than others or, even more abominable, that they can be slaughtered or terminated because they don’t meet some man-made standard of “quality of life”. 

Only an absolute and inalienable recognition of the value of every human life can sustain us.  It is the one and only principle that can save us from the tyranny of despots and our own self-destruction.

Abortion cannot represent the future because the future is about life, and abortion does not give life. It gives death.  To the unborn.  To our families. To our communities. To our legal and political institutions. To our economy. To our social programs.  And then to the civilization as a whole. 

The pro-aborts thought they could limit death to the unborn, but they didn’t realize that death, once invited to dinner, wants the whole pie not just one piece of it.

  1. Here is more info on today’s mentality.

    The Nazi Mentality Lives On Today

    By Stephen J. Gray

    Before the Nazis came for the Jews, they were killing the handicapped, sick and disabled children and others deemed “unworthy of living,” in German society. Now fast forward to our world of today and we have our own helpless innocent lives declared unworthy of living.

    “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”George Santayana

    A Lifesite article of November 13, 2008, by Hilary White, had the headline,“Australian Committee Proposal to Pay Mothers to Abort Disabled Babies Compared to Nazis” The article went on say this:

    “The Australian Parliamentary Group on Population and Development has been slammed by Queensland Senator Ron Boswell for holding to Nazi-style eugenic ideology on the abortion of disabled children.” Senator Boswell is quoted in the article as saying: “This is the kind of thinking that was typical of the Hitler regime. They set themselves up as judge of who deserved to live and who deserves to die.

    And the Ottawa Citizen of November 10, 2008, had this to say about those diagnosed with Down Syndrome:

    “Consider how prenatal testing has affected the Down syndrome community. It used to be that only the fetuses of women over 35 were tested for the extra chromosome that causes the condition. Now, in some jurisdictions, women of all ages are tested, and 90 per cent of fetuses with the defect are aborted.” [1]
    Today these little innocents are the lives deemed unworthy of living, only we call it “choice.”

    Who would have believed that a world that condemned the atrocities of Nazism would now be engaged in similar “work.” One wonders if Josef Mengele, the infamous Nazi doctor, were alive today if he would be an enthusiastic participant in the abortion industry? The mentality–that there are lives unworthy of living–is the same so it would make sense that he would. Another horrifying example of where “choice” has led us is the stem cell industry. A BBC story headlined, “Ukraine babies in stem cell probe” had this to say:

    “There is a trade in stem cells from aborted foetuses, amid unproven claims they can help fight many diseases.

    “But now there are claims that stem cells are also being harvested from live babies. …

    “The BBC has spoken to mothers from the city of Kharkiv who say they gave birth to healthy babies, only to have them taken by maternity staff.

    “In 2003 the authorities agreed to exhume around 30 bodies of foetuses and full-term babies from a cemetery used by maternity hospital number six.

    “One campaigner was allowed into the autopsy to gather video evidence. She has given that footage to the BBC and Council of Europe.

    “In its report, the Council describes a general culture of trafficking of children snatched at birth, and a wall of silence from hospital staff upwards over their fate.

    “The pictures show organs, including brains, have been stripped – and some bodies dismembered.” [2] What kind of human animal would do this to the most helpless in society?

    Do these kind of people deserve the title “doctor?”

    “[Doctor] Josef Mengele was the infamous Angel of Death at the Nazi concentration camp in Auschwitz, Poland. As a doctor with Hitler’s dreaded SS seeking to unlock a genetic basis for a superior race, he conducted macabre experiments, primarily on twin inmates, using them like laboratory animals.” [3]

    An article in the Vancouver Sun of January 20, 2007, stated, “A woman was naturally pregnant with twins, but wanted only one baby. She said that unless the physicians ‘got rid of one baby’ she would abort both.” The article goes on to say, “An article in the New England Journal of Medicine described how one baby was killed with an injection of potassium chloride into its heart, both were left in utero and at term one live baby was born and one shrunken fetus delivered.” This type of killing is called the ‘selective reduction process’ or could be called killing by “choice.”

    These words have been said over and over again about the Nazis: “Why did the German people allow this to happen?” Now the question must be asked today: “Why are we allowing state-authorized killing of the smallest, weakest human beings? Today in our society under the slogan of “choice” we kill our young. Some babies even survive the abortion/killing process, but are left to die. Hypocrisy and depravity have been legitimized, and many of the political “leaders” in our world are boasting and trumpeting they are in favor of “freedom of choice” to kill the child in the womb. These same politicians babble on about “human rights” while at the same time deny rights to the children in the womb.

    In addition, decent people who speak out against these atrocities are ridiculed and reviled. Some are even arrested for daring to show the truth. (Today’s Gestapo, perhaps?) And the slaughtered, dismembered bodies of these little innocents are hidden from sight. Even most of our so-called “free press” and TV media condone and cover up the atrocities. (except of course if it’s spotted owls, whales, bears, fish, or seals who are being slaughtered–then they publicize it ad nauseam) No wonder newspaper circulation is declining and the TV media have lost credibility; propaganda disguised as news does not fool those who seek the truth. We have a holocaust of the innocents in our midst. Over 100,000 children in the womb are slaughtered yearly in Canada and at least 46 million world-wide. This is state-sanctioned killing under the banner of “choice.” And most of the present day media, politicians and elites parrot their choice propaganda.

    “The effective propagandist must be a master of the art of speech, of writing, of journalism, of the poster and of the leaflet. He must have the gift to use the major methods of influencing public opinion such as the press, film and radio to serve his ideas and goals, above all in an age of advancing technology.” [4] (Josef Goebbles)

    The technology of today allows us to see the child in the womb via ultrasound and people get pictures of their child and show them off proudly, when the child is wanted. Then there is the other evil use of this technology to kill these innocents because they are unwanted. Today’s gas chamber is the womb and today’s executioners are the abortionists. And some of these abortionists even get “honored” for their grisly “work.” The Nazi mentality lives on today and tragically, and frighteningly, we have been conditioned to accept the killing. For as the saying goes, “There are none so blind as those who cannot see.”
