Since Roe v. Wade abortion has claimed the lives of over 53 million babies in America. More than eight times as many infants have been killed through abortion than Jews murdered in the Nazi concentration camps. Abortion is truly the Holocaust of our time.
On May 2, 1945, the 8th Infantry Division and the 82nd Airborne Division liberated the Nazi concentration camp at Wöbbelin, Germany. There they discovered bodies that “were found piled four and five feet high,” and others that were strewn among the sick and dying.
Four days later, under orders of the 82nd Airborne Division, American troops forced the residents of the nearby town of Ludwigslust to walk through the camp and see what had been happening next door to their homes for years.
Nine days later, on May 15, Lt. Col. Ed Seiller of Louisville, Kentucky, literally stood amidst a pile of Holocaust victims at one of the liberated Dachau sub-camps and spoke to some 200 German civilians from nearby Landsberg whom American forces had forced to walk through the camp and see first-hand many of those who had died there.
How many of them had known about these camps? Seeing the horror first hand, they could no longer claim ignorance.
These vivid and sordid scenes come to mind when we confront the accounts and images of Planned Parenthood technicians sifting through the soupy remains of their abortion victims. These atrocious scenes happen everyday in abortion clinics nationwide.
Planned Parenthood alone slaughters over 325,000 children every year or at a rate of 37 every hour. But that isn’t enough for them–after all, they were founded by a eugenicist, Margaret Sanger. For her acolytes, there’s always more work to be done. The $528 million that Congress gives to Planned Parenthood every year aren’t enough to line the pockets of this murderous organization. They won’t be content until they can cut the brains out of babies as their hearts are still beating as a recent Center for Medical Progress video reveals.
The abortion rate in America has plummeted to the lowest levels since 1973. We now know how Planned Parenthood plans to make up for its lost profits — harvesting organs of aborted children and the more intact the better. If that means delivering a live baby before ensuring demise, so be it. If that means procuring baby parts without patient consent, so be it.
But Planned Parenthood is proud of their organ harvesting program. After all, it’s for the sake of life-saving medical research.
Did I say “medical research”? Yes, that’s the same term used by Josef Mengele, the notorious Nazi “Chief Physician” at Birkenau near Auschwitz. Every day, Dr. Mengele (a.k.a. the “Angel of Death”) would sift through the incoming prisoners and select those he deemed most useful for his “experiments.”
Holly O’Donnell, an ex-procurement technician for StemExpress (a company allegedly involved in the purchasing of fetal parts from Planned Parenthood), recounts the zeal among some abortionists in harvesting baby parts. “If there wasn’t a girl in the room [for an abortion], he would get mad. He would pace the hallways if there wasn’t something to do,” she says in the video.
One can only be reminded of accounts from concentration camp survivors describing Mengele’s “frenzied attitude in carrying out his research…he seemed to have an inner compulsion to get a great deal accomplished quickly in a personal race against time.”
Like Planned Parenthood, Mengele was obsessed with obtaining more “specimens” for his research. Eyewitnesses have said that he was always present at the train depot when inmates arrived (unlike the other doctors who took turns with the job). He would avidly search out twins for his “research.” He would often be heard calmly whistling Wagner while choosing which subjects were fit for his experiments. Among those who were not selected for his research, he would decide in a glance who would become a slave laborer and who would be sent to the gas chambers. Mengele had a strong preference for the latter option.
Aside from Mengele’s egregious and murderous violation of ethics, his “research” appeared to follow a methodology quite acceptable for his time. His “research” was academically rigorous, methodical and conducted with state-of-the-art medical devices and facilities—not unlike the “valid” research done with human fetal body parts as procured by Planned Parenthood.
Mengele would often perform dissections on twins after conducting research. In spite of his affectionate demeanor towards his patients during the course of a study, if he decided that a dissection would be beneficial he would often murder them himself.
One Nazi doctor was reported to have recalled an instance where “Mengele had shot…two boys in the neck and that ''while they were still warm, began to examine them: lungs first, [then] each organ.'' These boys had been the favorites with the doctors and with Mengele himself.
But of course, as pro-abortion advocates would have us believe, that’s completely different from ripping a baby from its mother’s womb at 18 weeks gestation and cutting out its organs as his or her little heart is still beating…completely different.
Given the similarities between SS Dr. Josef Mengele and Planned Parenthood’s organ-harvesting business, it’s no surprise that, after the war, Mengele became arenowned abortionist in Argentina. Of course, at that time, abortion was illegal in Argentina, but laws never seem to hinder the radical pro-abortion cadres.
The curtain has been lifted. The American public has seen first-hand Planned Parenthood’s grisly abortion business as clear as the day when U.S. troops liberated the concentration camp at Wöbbelin. Yet to this day, Planned Parenthood continues to harvest baby parts.
And all of this for life-saving research—never mind the baby that is killed in the process.
The irony is absolutely sickening.
