Elimination of Trisomy Patients Smells of Nazi Tactics
Most people feel obligated to abort Down Syndrome babies, that haven’t even been born yet. Numerous studies have indicated 90% of these children are aborted. One might notice an echo of 1920’s Germany in America—where eugenics, a movement eradicating Jews and other ‘inferior’ races have surfaced with Obamacare.
Today, a segment of population embraces eugenics in the form of abortion ‘rights’. This movement’s main purpose is to eradicate Black babies, those who have disabilities, or those judged to be born into poverty. With 15 million Black abortions since Roe was instated in 1973, it is truly the abortion holocaust.
Bottom line, all disabled citizens are human beings worthy of protection. But Obamacare sounds like it is right out of the 1930’s Nazi Germany. Some have obviously come to the conclusion that these kids are not “worthy of life”. One has to wonder who has deemed these ‘life-worthy’ deciders to be God?
By the outbreak of WWII in 1939, Germany had sterilized an estimated 400,000 people. However, in 1940 the need for hospital beds for wounded soldiers prompted a better solution for “lives not worth living”. Doctors identified over 70,000 mental patients who fit the bill. They were given carbon monoxide in extermination centers at psychiatric hospitals.
Never mind that Down Syndrome babies can possibly lead a normal life. Never mind that a Down prognosis is usually made with the child in the womb, and can be wrong. In fact, most families with a Down member found Down Syndrome is a positive. You will find a full 99% of adults with Down say they are happy with their lives. You’re not likely to find anything close to 99% with normal adults.
The most common is Down Syndrome, also known as Trisomy 21, has an abortion rate of about 90%. A person would have 3 copies of Chromosome 21 instead of 2. The incidence of Down is around 1 in every 480 births. Characteristics may include outwardly slanted eyes, and/or relatively short arms or legs.
The second most common is Trisomy 18, also known as Edwards Syndrome. A person would have 3 copies of Chromosome 18, with an incidence of 1 in every 1600 births. Severe defects include those of the kidneys, ureters, heart, lungs, and diaphragm.
Typically known as Trisomy 13, the last common trisomy, Patau Sydrome, has 3 copies of Chromosome 13 instead of two, and occurs in one in every 4000 births. Severe characteristic include an opening in the skull, or malformations of part of the brain.
It is true that maternal women (over 37) are more likely to have babies with chromosomal disorders. With older men (over 50) research tentatively suggests are more likely to father babies with chromosomal disorders, and studies indicate women with over four babies have a slightly increased risk of any subsequent babies having a chromosomal disorder.
A likelihood for any population is genetic changes. If they occur in more than 1% of the population, they are common enough to be considered normal variation of the DNA, or “polymorphisms”. They are responsible for most of the normal differences in people ( e.g., eye color, hair color, blood type, etc…).
But today, we kill at least 90% of suspected Down kids. Why force parents to care for a Down Syndrome child? How about handicapped individuals, or those who will be born into poverty, or are no longer deemed productive to society? With Obamacare those individuals will likely be deemed unworthy of additional care, because they are likely to die sooner than later. The entire range of characteristics (hair color, eye color, blood type, I.Q., etc…) is now on the decision table.
Shockingly, Anton Chaitkin, (Executive Intelligence Review; 6/19/09), wrote The Nazi Euthanasia Program: Forerunner of Obama’s Death Council. In it, most of the points made below can be found.
Hitler had told his political confidants, the eugenics/euthanasia movement would have to wait for the crisis of war to convince the public to give up their moral principles—the identical point made by Ezekiel Emanuel in October 2008.
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel is President Obama’s leading representative making a list of medical procedures to be used to deny care to elderly, chronically ill, and poor people whose lives are considered of less value. Ezekiel’s brother, Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, has been attempting to ram this Nazi-revival policy through Congress.
The President (5/11/11), said that because of the financial crisis, $2 trillion must be cut from American health-care spending. Many companies promised to help him eliminate more “costly” treatments, which typically prolong life.
But German advocates of eugenics had written a lurid 1920 pamphlet, The Permission To Destroy Life Unworthy of Life, a major harbinger of things to come. The eugenics/euthanasia movement laid low for a time, inventing new names for itself such as “bioethics”, “social biology” and “the right to die”.
The dean of health-care economists, Victor Fuchs of Stanford, has long maintained we will get health-care reform only when there is a war, a depression or some other major civil unrest. “It’s beginning to look like we might just have all three…” per Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, (The Financial Crisis and Health Care; Chicago Tribune;10/12/08).
This movement has prepared public opinion, medical education, and government policy to discard the notion of the sanctity of human life that holds our civilization together.
We’re already treading on a similar Nazi path of 1934. With the possible re-election of Obama in less that a year, that path will come. We have the power to change that. If we don’t, there is no return…
