On the heels of the provocative “Black Children are an Endangered Species” billboard campaign currently running in Atlanta, Ga., comes another, this one in Poland.
Next week the Polish arm of the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform will begin displaying this sign on a huge billboard (74 feet by 32 feet) in a large city in Poland, remaining unnamed for now so as not to jeopardize the plan.
Translation: Abortion for Polish women introduced by Hitler on March 9, 1943
Coincidentally, March 8 is International Women’s Day, a special day for feminists in Poland. Each year to celebrate they organize demonstrations in major cities, including Poznan, to demand abortion without limits.
Adolf Hitler was so ahead of his time.
The sign is true, by the way. According to Wapedia (emphasis mine):
Until 1932, abortion was banned in Poland without exceptions. In that year a new Penal Code legalized abortion strictly when there were medical reasons and, for the first time in Europe, when the pregnancy resulted from a criminal act. Except during the German occupation during the Second World War, this law was in effect from 1932 to 1956.
During the German occupation of Poland and other European countries, abortion was an important method Hitler used to exterminate non-Aryans. According to Wiki Answers (emphasis mine):
Did Hitler support abortion?
Yes. In fact, he was the first major Western leader to allow abortion even for reasons of the stress of the mother – thus making it legal in nearly every circumstance. His idea was to limit the growth of populations (lessen them, actually) in the Eastern territories where he wanted the German empire to expand – while increasing pregnancies and births to “Aryan” couples.
Under Hitler’s guidance, the Berlin Chamber of Physicians loosened the Nazis’ abortion policy in 1933 so as to use abortion as a tool to exterminate nondesirables. It determined “the health of the mother – considered from all angles – is the decisive factor” for abortions.
Flash forward to the U.S. Supreme Court’s definition of the abortion health exception in its Jan. 22, 1973, Doe v. Bolton decision, which was, “all factors – physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age – relevant to the well-being of the patient.”
Great minds think alike, or plagiarize sometimes.
Hitler introduced the novel concept of free-standing abortion mills in a 1942 policy statement (emphasis mine):
In view of the large families of the Slav native population, it could only suit us if girls and women there had as many abortions as possible. We are not interested in seeing the non-German population multiply. …
We must use every means to instill in the population the idea that it is harmful to have several children, the expenses that they cause and the dangerous effect on woman’s health. …
It will be necessary to open special institutions for abortions and doctors must be able to help out there in case there is any question of this being a breach of their professional ethics.
What vision. Hitler would no doubt have approved of locating American abortion clinics in minority neighborhoods.
Probably the most universally accepted of Hitler’s concepts today is that of “‘positive eugenics’ to encourage desirable births,” described by Israeli Dr. Tessa Chelouche in her 2007 study, “Doctors, Pregnancy, Childbirth and Abortion during the Third Reich”:
In 1933 professor Wagner, director of the women’s clinic of Berlin’s Charite Hospital and editor of a prestigious gynecology journal, declared “the nation’s stock of the ovaries a national resource and property of the German state.” He called for “mandatory care for these vital organs, vital not only for the individual but for the health and future of the entire Volk.”
Today we see Hitler’s dream of creating that perfect human race played out in the prevalent practice of paying smart, beautiful, young women for their eggs, or to be inseminated with sperm from equally attractive med students, all to create bright, beautiful children, usually blonde-haired and blue-eyed.
Hitler could never have dreamed of our scientific community’s current endeavors to grow strong embryos in the petri dish to harvest cells, tissue and organs to replace faltering cells, tissue and organs in we super humans.
We’re so advanced.
