Untermenschen

Reader Joe P. drew my attention to this photo taken in April 1945 of Jewish children and a baby in a mass grave at Nordhausen, Germany (courtesy of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum). Joe compared that Holocaust to our modernday Holocaust of babies, writing that the Nazis called Jewish people “untermenschen,” translated “subhumans.” Interestingly, when […]

See the rooster crow…

Rep. Mike Castle (D-DE), who sponsored the embryonic stem cell bill in the House, bragged at a press conference Wednesday he knew precisely how members were going to vote beforehand. Except he didn’t. Hard lobbying by pro-life groups peeled away some of his votes at the last minute. HR 810 still passed, but it didn’t […]

Hillary & Howard lie about Bush abortion stats

John Cusey of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus writes today: Hillary Clinton and Howard Dean continue to promote the myth that the number of abortions has increased since President Bush was elected. Howard Dean said last weekend on Meet the Press, “You know that abortions have gone up 25% since George Bush was President?”, and yesterday […]

Mother covers incest by getting daughter abortion

The Palm Beach Post is reporting that the alleged rape of a 17-year-old by her stepfather was covered up by the girl’s mother, who took the girl for an abortion so authorities couldn’t perform a paternity test on the baby. Abortion is a sexual perpetrator’s best friend….

Pro-aborts make startling discoveries…. after abortion

Former Ms. Magazine editor Jennifer Baumgardner writes an enlightening piece in today’s fairfieldweekly.com admitting that young women consider the mainstream abortion movement haggard (“stale”) and out-of-touch (“blank faces” when confronted about “the lack of emotional resources” for post-abortive women). Baumgardner tells of the “innovations” pro-aborts have created to connect with women, such as establishing a […]

Kristina Garza, spokeswoman for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, a pro-life organization that often sets up anti-abortion displays on campuses along the West Coast, said her group also frequently encounters college students who accept infanticide.

“For those who are firmly for abortion, because they understand it kills a human being, it’s very easy for them to accept killing a human being after birth,” Garza said. “There is this notion that is common on campus, that it’s OK to kill babies because somehow we don’t become human until we are self aware.”

“A common number that is going around is 4 years old,” she adds.

As for the trend, Garza said there’s an explanation for it. For one, the arguments put forth by Peter Singer and other philosophers who support infanticide are given as reading assignments to college students.

Singer wrote in 1979 that “human babies are not born self-aware, or capable of grasping that they exist over time. They are not persons … [therefore] the life of a newborn is of less value than the life of a pig, a dog, or a chimpanzee.”
