Nazi Extermination of Thousands of Disabled Children Featured in New Berlin Museum Exhibit

Berlin’s “Topography of Terror,” museum, which features exhibits on the murderous crimes of German police forces during the Nazi era, has begun a temporary display on the thousands of children euthanized during the same period as “life unworthy of life.”

The exhibition, entitled “In memory of the children. Pediatricians and crimes against children in the Nazi period,” displays photos and documents related to various Nazi projects concerning the murder and torture of children, such as Action T4 and Lebensborn.

While Action T4 focused on exterminating children who were physically or mentally handicapped, Lebensborn was a eugenic breeding program using unwed mothers, in which children with features not regarded as sufficiently “Aryan” were disposed of like so much waste.

“Through 1945, over 10,000 [children] fell victim to the various programs which were designed to exterminate ‘life unworthy of living,’” the museum states. “More than 5,000 children and teenagers were tortured and murdered in the Nazi ‘children’s departments’ alone, institutions which were specially created for the purpose of extermination.”

Although many children were simply gassed or starved to death, some were spared an immediate exit from life – to serve as subjects of medical experiments, which included the removal of their organs.

“Children also fell victim to the ‘T4’ gas chamber program and to the ‘starvation diet’ which they received in the homes and institutions; they were abused for the purpose of experimentation and their organs where used after their death for research purposes,” according to the museum.

In addition to Action T4 project, which resulted in the deaths of approximately 10,000 children and teenagers, the Lebensborn project killed an estimated 5,000 more.

“This exposition speaks of the most defenseless of that society,” Berlin’s Charité medical school’s historian told the Spanish newspaper El Mundo. “Visitors must be prepared to confront very difficult facts.”

Stephanie Gray of the Canadian Centre for Bioethical Reform and the Genocide Awareness Project noted the troubling parallels between the Nazi euthanasia program for children and the ongoing murder of millions of children today in the wombs of their mothers – often for eugenic reasons similar to those that motivated the Nazi holocaust.

“The notion of ‘life unworthy of life’ is eerily familiar to today’s slogan, ‘quality of life,’” Stephanie Gray told LifeSiteNews. “The philosophy which guided the Nazis is a philosophy which guides many today – that the value of one’s life is to be determined by one’s features or abilities.  It is this frightening mentality which leads to human rights violations.”

Currently in the West, a large percentage of children diagnosed in the womb with a disability will ultimately be killed through abortion. Even children diagnosed with Down syndrome, a condition with which a person can live happily for many years, are killed at an astonishing rate of over 90% when the condition is diagnosed in utero. Such eugenic abortions often occur later in pregnancy, when the baby is fully formed, and according to many experts can already experience pain.

In at least one country – the Netherlands – eugenics has already extended beyond abortion, with the legalization of infant euthanasia under the so-called Groningen Protocol.  Under the protocol babies can be killed after birth if they suffer, or are likely to suffer, from “progressive paralysis, complete lifelong dependency, and permanent inability to communicate in any way.”

In one article in the prestigious Hastings Report in 2008, two Dutch bioethicists argued that in such cases, “the baby is judged to be better off dead than forced to endure the only kind of life it can ever have.”

“The Nazis treated children as objects to be used and disposed of,” Gray said. “How is that different from today’s society which treats pre-born children as objects to be used (such as for stem cells) and disposed of (through abortion)?”

Gray also observed that, while a museum display on the Nazi atrocities against children does not elicit protest, photos of the unborn victims of abortion often do.

“Isn’t it interesting that people will pay money to go to a museum to see disturbing images of the mistreatment of children, yet many criticize the display of abortion images.  Perhaps it’s because it’s easier to face historic injustices which we didn’t commit; it’s much more difficult to face present-day injustices which we do permit,” she said.

The Genocide Awareness Project sets up displays of large images of unborn children killed by abortion, juxtaposed with images victims of the Nazi holocaust and racially-motivated lynchings, to raise awareness about the true nature of abortion.

Pro-Life Activist Prevails Against the U.S. Department of Justice

Yesterday, Thomas More Society attorneys defeated a request by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder for a preliminary injunction against longtime Denver area pro-life activist Ken Scott. After a full-day hearing, U.S. District Judge Philip A. Brimmer ruled that the Attorney General would not be reasonably likely to prove at trial that Scott physically obstructed employees of the Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains abortion facility in Denver. The Attorney General has asserted ten separate violations of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act against Scott, seeking a $10,000 fine against him and an injunction to keep him 25 feet away from the facility. A copy of Judge Brimmer's ruling is available here.

"This is the latest in a series of meritless, harassing lawsuits filed by the Obama Administration that seek to squelch peaceful pro-life advocacy on public sidewalks outside abortion providers," said Peter Breen, executive director and legal counsel for the Thomas More Society. "In this case, the Attorney General presented no evidence that Mr. Scott injured, intimidated, or did anything other than speak to folks who willingly decided to stop their cars to talk with him. Assigning five taxpayer-funded prosecutors from Washington, D.C. to attack one peaceful man exercising his free speech rights is a colossal waste of money, uncalled for at any time, much less at a time of record government deficits, not to mention the Government's gross insult to the First Amendment."

Ken Scott is a "sidewalk counselor" who offers pro-life literature, advice about nearby pregnancy resource centers, and other pro-life counseling and advocacy to individuals patronizing the Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains abortion facility in Denver.

United States v. Scott is one of many recent FACE Act lawsuits brought by the Obama Administration and its Attorney General, Eric Holder, against local sidewalk counselors. The Attorney General's primary legal theory is that a car that stops to speak to a sidewalk counselor constitutes a "physical obstruction" of access to an abortion facility and a violation of the FACE Act, punishable by a $10,000 fine and an injunction against sidewalk counseling at a particular facility.

Judge Brimmer's ruling held that the brief delays experienced by cars waiting for others to finish their conversations with Ken Scott were not the kinds of "unreasonable delays" contemplated by the FACE Act. Judge Brimmer also held that the balance of the equities weighed in favor of Ken Scott.

Representing Ken Scott in the United States District Court were Peter Breen of the Chicago-based Thomas More Society, a national public interest law firm, and Rebecca Messall and Monica Flanigan of Denver's Hackstaff Law Group. Ms. Messall, in addition to conducting her private law practice, has been CEO of the National Lawyers Association, a pro-life legal group, for the past two years and also served as board chair for Denver Catholic Charities.

What Economic Downturn? The Abortion Business is Booming

As the U.S. economy continues to shudder, Americans find themselves in a tight spot. 2011 was the worst year on record for home sales, unemployment claims rose markedly in the 4th quarter, and the high energy prices we have endured are set to worsen with gasoline expected to top $4 a gallon this summer. Nevertheless, money continues to come easy for those on the government dole.

For example, Planned Parenthood, which received nearly $500,000,000 in federal money last year, just plopped down $35,000,000 for a building to use for its headquarters in New York City. The 192,000 sq. ft. building contains condos as well as business space, and some of the offices in the building are rented out to other companies, making Planned Parenthood a landlord.

The death business is booming, huh?

And just in case the more than $1,000,000,000 in assets Planned Parenthood claimed after last fiscal year isn’t enough, Mayor Michael Bloomberg “provided $15,000,000 in bond funding for Planned Parenthood to renovate the building.” (You know how important it is to have the proper décor surrounding you when you’re plotting how to stop more beating hearts.)

Looks like Planned Parenthood is living it up. After all, it wasn’t that long ago that they opened a 78,000 sq. ft. abort-a-topia in Houston (and it was just this past Christmas that they threw a big Christmas party in there).

But isn’t there something a little sick—beyond sick actually—about pursuing the business of death with such aplomb?

Because facts are hard things to run from, Planned Parenthood can host all the chic parties they want in their new digs, perhaps even a Christmas party in NYC that will eclipse the one they threw in Houston. Yet when the day is done, and mothers who had abortions reel in agony over the “choice” Planned Parenthood encouraged them to make, it’s all about death. Nearly 80,000 square feet of it in Houston, almost 200,000 square feet of it in NYC, and more than one billion dollars—much of it from taxpayers—in pocket money to boot.

The death business is booming, but we’re killing ourselves to make it happen.

This means that all the big money from tax-payers and the political favors that come from mayors who support Planned Parenthood’s killing machine, carry with them the putrid smell of lifelessness. It also means that the hundreds of thousands of square feet of office space Planned Parenthood recently acquired will only stand as a stark reminder of what people without a conscience can accomplish in this life, if they really put their minds to it.

A glorious monument to an inglorious pursuit—that is what Planned Parenthood has acquired.

Reverberations of Roe v. Wade

Thirty-nine years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled, in Roe v. Wade, that the laws outlawing abortion in Texas were unconstitutional because a woman had a right to privacy, guaranteed by the Constitution. Suddenly, the unborn had no legal protection in the United States. But Roe v. Wade did not just deny legal protection to the unborn, it catapulted the United States toward all manner of unethical biotechnology.

Report: Louisiana Most Pro-Life, Washington Most Pro-Abortion
 The national pro-life legislative group Americans United for Life has released its seventh annual ranking of states across the country based on the way each deals with a comprehensive list of life issues – from abortion to euthanasia.

For the second time in three years, Louisiana tops the list, followed closely by Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Nebraska, and Arkansas. Indiana was listed as the most improved state last year.

Benjamin Clapper, the executive director of Louisiana Right to Life, told LifeNews he is delighted to learn his state is the most pro-life in the country. "Since 1970, Louisiana Right to Life has worked diligently to ensure that Louisiana law protects human life as much as possible,” he said. “AUL’s ranking recognizes this great undertaking, and the success we have achieved in defending life at our state legislature.”

Washington, California, Hawaii, Vermont, and Montana come in as the least life-affirming states, while Arizona, Indiana, Kansas, North Carolina, and Utah rate as the “most improved.”

 "Under the Gold Dome" 
Dear friends of the Pre-Born if you have the heart to fight for those who are on the front lines in the battle for the soul of America and Georgia then I would like you to consider standing with the small handful of men and woman who are under siege at the Capital.

As you may know there are many hurdles to cross when lawmakers come together to pass new legislation.The small group of assembly men who have taken up the fight for the Pre-Born "Under the Gold Dome" need our help A.S.A.P.

Back in 2008 the Georgia House Speaker opposed the idea of giving the people of Georgia the ability to vote on a ballot initiative that would have given all the citizens of Georgia equal protection under state law. In 2012 nothing much has changed with the leardership opposition to placing on this November's Election Ballot a "Paramount Right to Life Amendment" for the voters of Georgia to decide on. As in 2008 many things remain undone ?

There is a bill in the senate bill SR-153  and a house bill  HR-1072 . These bills need to go through the "House Judiciary Committee" were it's chairman Willard Wendell (a Planned Parenthood funded Rep.) is holding up any hearings as he did back in 2008. Our state Rep.'s that have co-sponsored "Paramount Right to Life Amendment" need our support but it's the House Judiciary Committee that needs to hear from you !

If you want to stand up for the Pre-Born in the state of Georgia then please let each Judiciary Committee member know that we need to have a date on there calendar set for a hearings on SR-153  &  HR-1072 . They need to commit to a hearing on the bill and set a date for that hearing !

Please see the links below.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD / KOMEN

The Planned Parenthood Shakedown

Planned Parenthood is an organization that has spent decades accumulating federal funding under false pretenses, lying to women about the effects of abortion (including the known link between abortion and breast cancer), and propagating the murder of children in the womb for the sake of their own profit worldwide.

The fact that anyone gives this band of liars funding is appalling.  The fact that our current President was endorsed by the organization and goes to great lengths to keep them in business is horrendous.  But you know what is not surprising?

Susan G. Komen for the Cure cutting their Planned Parenthood funding.  That, to me, is the most logical decision in the world.

Besides the fact that Planned Parenthood is now in violation of Komen's new policy to deny funding to any organization under "criminal and conclusive" investigation on the state, local, and federal level — that alone should be sufficient reasoning — Komen's decision also draws attention to the most pertinent fact of all: services at PP do NOT prevent breast cancer.

Despite what PP President Cecile Richards tries to sell to the public, PP facilities are void of mammogram machines, the most important tool in preventing breast cancer.  The organization is also the number one provider of abortion in the nation and an avid supplier of oral contraceptives — both of which have a known link to breast cancer.

Komen giving Planned Parenthood money to stop breast cancer is like the Republicans giving Obama money to help them win the election.  It will never make sense, but Planned Parenthood hoped no one would notice that.  Just like they seem to think no one will notice the mafia shakedown they've given Komen these last three days for having the audacity to deny them funds.

Planned Parenthood has tried to make an example out of Komen.  With the use of mainstream media and inside influence, they've created a huge, aggravated public mess so tiresome to watch Komen clean up that any other organization will think twice before pulling their own funding.

This morning in our devotions with the Campus Life Team, we read the passage in Matthew 14 about Herod arresting John the Baptist.  John had publicly declared that Herod taking his brother's wife was unlawful, and Herod — who was not in the habit of being called out by prophets in the desert — killed him for it.  John was beheaded because he stood up to someone with immense political power and pointed out his corruption.

Our team could not help but think of Komen.  Though they may not have realized it at the start, Komen's decision to deny Planned Parenthood any amount of funding, especially based on the fact of PP's obvious legal misconduct, made them a danger and an adversary.

Just as Herod could not tolerate John's acknowledgement of his sin, Planned Parenthood will not tolerate anyone publicly challenging their own organization, especially if that challenge affects their checkbook.  And while no one, neither Planned Parenthood or the pro-life movement, can know whether or not Komen will stick to its new policy, Planned Parenthood is not waiting to let anyone find out.

They are determined to tear Komen apart just like they tear apart the lives of women and bodies of preborn children every single day.  Destruction is actually all they are capable of.

As a pro-lif

e community we should not be focused on what Komen's true intentions are with their new policy.  That will reveal itself with time.  Our energy should be spent, instead, on exposing the thug-like behavior of Planned Parenthood in this entire ordeal.

We should be making absolutely certain that the entire nation sees that Planned Parenthood does not care about the lives of women, nor the preventative healthcare those women receive.  They only care about how much money they can take them for.  To them Komen is just another paycheck.  And if you don't write the check, Planned Parenthood will break your fingers.  That's the sort of "business" tactics this so-called friendly, pro-woman organization uses.

At Survivors, we sincerely hope Komen will stand their ground, and we invite you to keep Nancy Brinker and her colleagues at the Susan G. Komen Foundation in prayer.  But do even more than that! Pray that God continues to expose the corruption within Planned Parenthood to the people who give them money, and work at educating those around you about the lies and intimidation that always accompany abortion.

That is what groups like Survivors, Live Action, Operation Rescue and many, many others work towards uncovering each day.  It's how we strip away the facade that Planned Parenthood has spent years projecting, and show the world it's true visage: an undeniably twisted face of deception, marred with the horror and atrocity of murdering preborn children.

Planned Parenthood Shakes Down Komen Foundation

Planned Parenthood (PP) showed its Mafia-style operations by shaking down the Komen Foundation, causing Komen to apologize for

“…deeply unsettling… our supporters, partners and friends.   We have been distressed at the presumption that the changes made to our funding criteria were done for political reasons or to specifically penalize Planned Parenthood. They were not.”

PP unleashed its wrath on the preeminent breast cancer-fighting organization in the world when Komen established new criteria for grants that restricted them from going to organizations under criminal and legislative investigations or to organizations that do not have the capability to treat patients in-house (ending what are known as “pass-throughs”).  PP is under criminal investigation in several jurisdictions and under investigation by the U.S. House of Representatives and several state legislatures for illegally funneling money to their abortion business, and will not qualify for future grants under these criteria.

It is clear that PP will go to any means to continue its drive to become the Obama Administration’s Community Health partner by allegedly providing breast cancer screenings and treatment when its real business is abortion.

PP is all about abortion.  Look at the mission statement of the national organization!

Planned Parenthood believes in the fundamental right of each individual, throughout the world, to manage his or her fertility, regardless of the individual’s income, marital status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or residence. We believe that respect and value for diversity in all aspects of our organization are essential to our well-being. We believe that reproductive self-determination must be voluntary and preserve the individual’s right to privacy. We further believe that such self-determination will contribute to an enhancement of the quality of life and strong family relationships.

Based on these beliefs, and reflecting the diverse communities within which we operate, the mission of Planned Parenthood is…

        to provide comprehensive reproductive and complementary health care services in settings which preserve and protect the essential privacy and rights of each individual
        to advocate public policies which guarantee these rights and ensure access to such services
        to provide educational programs which enhance understanding of individual and societal implications of human sexuality
        to promote research and the advancement of technology in reproductive health care and encourage understanding of their inherent bioethical, behavioral, and social implications (Emphasis added.)

The Virginia League for Planned Parenthood is no different.  Breast cancer screenings and treatments are also missing from its mission statement:

Our mission is to ensure that individuals and families have the freedom, information, and ability to make their own informed reproductive choices. We believe that each individual has a basic right to control his/her reproductive life. Individual control will lead to a better quality of life and stronger families and communities. Reproductive health decisions must be voluntary and private. (Emphasis added.)

Let us make no mistake about it.  Planned Parenthood is in the business of abortion.  Its mission statements say so!  Komen will now need to reassess its commitment to PP.  Does it want to be linked with the abortion industry and the subsequent cancers that are created by abortion, or is it going to change course, taking the moral high road and truly helping women with breast cancer?  Only time will tell!

BREAKING: Komen to Stop Grants to Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz

 NOTE: This situation is far from settled at this time…

After years of protests and criticism from pro-life advocates, the biggest breast cancer organization, Susan G. Komen for the Cure has announced it is halting further grants and donations to the Planned Parenthood.

Figures from August directly from the Komen for the Cure foundation show 18 affiliates of the breast cancer charity gave a total of more than $569,000 to the Planned Parenthood abortion business in 2010. That was down from the $731,303 Komen officials publicly confirmed in October 2010, when they acknowledged that 20 of the 122 Komen affiliates gave to Planned Parenthood during the 2009 fiscal year.

Now, Komen says it is halting all grants because of public pressure from pro-life groups and due to the impending investigation in Congress of the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

The policy makes it so no further Planned Parenthood grants will be given unless the investigation results in Planned Parenthood’s favor. For remainder of article, visit — http://www.lifenews.com/2012/01/31/komen-to-stop-grants-to-planned-parenthood-abortion-biz/

Downsizing Planned Parenthood

Any big business with affiliates throughout the United States will experience financial strains in a faltering economy. Yet the most recent financial report of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) shows a net profit of 18.5 million dollars for the fiscal year 2009-2010.

What changed the fortunes of that officially non-profit organization so drastically that Peter J. Durkin, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast, called 2011 "one of the most discouraging years ever"?

The answer involves not only setbacks in the abortion industry but also unprecedented advances by the pro-life movement on the educational and l

egislative fronts.

BATTLE TO KEEP THE PP MEGA-PP ABORTION BUILDING FROM OPENING GOES  FORWARD

On January 7, 2012, Oakland County Judge James Alexander ruled in favor of Planned Parenthood of Mid and South Michigan’s motion for summary disposition—against the Comfort Inn Suites—in a court case that has thus far kept the abortion provider from opening its “full-service clinic” (a.k.a. abortion mill) in Auburn Hills, MI.  The Comfort Inn holds a deed restriction that limits the building purchased by PP at 1625 N. Opdyke Rd. to retail store, restaurant or office.  The judge ruled that “office” may legally include “medical office.”  (Please see the actual ruling—click here) Since PP, very conveniently, did not enter into the record what it actually intends to do with the building—the judge would not make a distinction between “medical office” and an “outpatient surgical treatment center.”
 
THIS BATTLE IS FAR FROM OVER!
The Comfort Inn Suites will take this case up on appeal and seek to overturn Alexander’s ruling–  thus the pro-life stake in this war is very much alive and your support and prayers are needed!
 
Please know that CPLS will begin to speak with, and if need be, picket and initiate a boycott of Phoenix Construction Co. and the Hobbs and Black architectural firm—both of which have been hired to build the interior of the PP death mill. More details about this essential strategy will be forthcoming!
 
Finally, keep in mind that even though PP won the hearing January 7th, they are still very much in a precarious position. The Opdyke Road property is a gutted building. As long as this lawsuit goes forward PP takes an enormous financial risk. They would have to make a $500,000 investment into this building just to get it up and running and they have NO GUARANTEE that they will ultimately prevail in this court case and be able to provide abortions (the PP money-maker) in that facility. Thus they will be stuck with a building that they may simply not be able to use!  


Planned Parenthood Purchases NYC HeadQuarters for $35 Million

After years of renting the property, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America has purchased its headquarters in New York City for $34.8 million.

The nation’s largest abortion provider has rented the commercial condominium where its headquarters are situated since 2002, and had reportedly originally signed for a 20-year lease for 104,000 square feet of the property at around $35 per square foot, according to The Real Deal, a local real estate news source.

Although legally a nonprofit organization, Planned Parenthood reported over $1 billion in net assets in 2009-10 according to its latest annual report. A Planned Parenthood watchdog guessed that revenue from abortions, 329,455 of which were committed in the same year, accounted for more than half the income listed as coming from “health centers.”

A recent Planned Parenthood CEO Report based on IRS tax filings, released by American Life League’s STOPP International, shows that many CEOs and top executives of Planned Parenthood are paid annual incomes of more than $250,000, putting them into the top 1% of income earners.

The report shows that the average salary of a CEO at a Planned Parenthood affiliate is $158,275. This falls in the top six percent of all household incomes in the United States. Thirty of the top executives receive salaries in excess of $200,000 (the top 2.67 percent of household income), while 18 of the executives rank in the top 1.5 percent with annual incomes in excess of $250,000.

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards makes nearly $400,000 per year.
