A look back at some of the grisly experiments once conducted on human abortion survivors will most likely make your stomach turn. This history shows the depravity a society can spiral into when medical research is allowed to advance untethered to any sense of ethical morality. Today, as videos of Planned Parenthood staffers haggling over the price of aborted baby body parts come to mind, a look into the fetal research market dating back to the 1930s reveals again how those who experiment on the bodies of tiny victims will often justify their actions as good.

Davenport Hooker’s Fetal Experiments on Living Aborted Babies

From the 1930s until the mid 1960s, University of Pittsburgh anatomist Davenport Hooker conducted research on children who survived surgical abortion by hysterotomy, a risky procedure similar to Caesarian section, where the doctor opens up the uterus with an incision and pulls the baby out.

Forensic anthropologist Emily K. Wilson authored a paper in the Bulletin of the History of Medicine, explaining how Hooker obtained the abortion survivors:

Immediately following a surgical abortion by hysterotomy, performed on an unnamed woman at a nearby lying-in hospital, Hooker took the seven-week-old fetus to an observation room. He touched and stroked the face, body, arms, and legs as a motion picture camera recorded the fetus’s corresponding movements and reflexes. Over the next thirty-one years, Hooker would observe more than 150 fetuses and prematurely born infants in this manner. The project resulted in over forty articles and one nine-minute medical film and contributed information and photographic stills to numerous scientific and popular publications.

Wilson also writes, “But while Hooker and the 1930s medical and general public viewed live fetuses as acceptable materials for nontherapeutic research, they also shared a regard for fetuses as developing humans with some degree of social value.”

According to PittMed, a publication of the University of Pittsburgh, “Hooker purchased a 35-mm motion picture camera. Having gained the trust and permission of the obstetricians at Magee-Womens Hospital, Hooker was able to observe therapeutically aborted fetuses removed by Caesarian section. Upon stimulating the skin, he recorded the degree of reflex development, and in January of 1933, created the first films ever made of human fetal movement.”

Rutgers professor Johanna Schoen, an abortion supporter, adds, “In 1952, he [Hooker] assembled his footage into a silent educational film called “Early Fetal Human Activity.” The film showed the muscle activity of six fetuses ranging from 8 1/2 to 14 weeks.”

Video from that film can be viewed below (Warning – Images may be disturbing for some):

Author Lynn Morgan also did research on Hooker and discovered a brief account of Hooker’s experiments before the American Philosophical Society were published in a 1938 Time Magazine article entitled, “Embryonic Grasp.” Morgan writes:

“It described how a twenty-five week old fetus “snatched a glass rod weighing three grams from the scientist’s hand, waved it feebly but triumphantly for an instant before the spark of life went out.”

Hooker pointed out to his audience that an abortion survivor at twelve weeks gestation makes a “pretty fair fist.”

The article noted that the doctor was notified by a Pittsburgh hospital, “whenever it has on hand a living abortus so that Dr. Hooker can rush to the scene with his photographer, make pictures and experiments before the fetus expires.”

Writing in her book, “Icons of Life: A Cultural History of Human Embryos,” Morgan seemed troubled by the calloused demeanor of Hooker’s audience and the journalist, writing:

“The journalist cited the “admiring voice” of the scientist as Hooker described his findings before a “spell bound” audience… Didn’t the audience question the ethics of fetal experimentation? Didn’t the audience question whether 149 women would have had to be subjected to major abdominal surgery if the researchers had not wanted the fetuses delivered alive?”

Schoen, who approves of using abortion survivors for research, goes on to write that, “Several of Hooker’s images were published in 1962 in an early pregnancy guidebook, ‘The First Nine Months of Life.’ Its author, Geraldine Flanagan, did not discuss how the fetuses were photographed or mention the conditions, such as therapeutic abortion, that allowed them to be used in research.”

Nurse Testifies Aborted Fetuses Shipped Alive on Ice

In 1972, a former Magee-Women’s Hospital nurse anesthetist testified before the Pennsylvania Abortion Law Commission that she witnessed the hospital shipping aborted and still living human fetuses to researchers for experimentation. Wilhamine Dick told the committee she witnessed “live fetuses being packed on ice” for use in research. According to a March 15, 1972, article published by the Indiana Evening Gazette, the former nurse also told the commission, “It was repulsive to watch live fetuses being packed in ice while still moving and trying to breathe, then being rushed to some laboratory and hear the medical students later discuss the experience of examining the organs of a once live baby.” She added that she resigned because she was “no longer able to accept seeing tiny arms and legs considered routine specimens.”

Stanford University Experiments on Living Aborted Children 

A report by the New York Times detailed experiments which involved scientists at Stanford University who allegedly immersed 15 abortion survivors in a salt solution to see if they could absorb oxygen through the skin. An October 4, 1973, report by the Placerville Mountain Democrat quoted an alleged witness by the name of James Babcock, who told a legislative panel that he “learned that live fetuses had been placed in a special chamber, their ribs cut open to observe their heartbeat under certain conditions.”

report by the Stanford Daily, which did not dispute that the experiments happened, claimed the project had been “terminated in 1969.” In fact, according to the report, Dr. Robert Goodlin, an associate professor of gynecology and obstetrics, performed the research at Stanford in the 1960s and told the paper, “Our goal was to keep the fetus alive.” He added, “Cutting the fetus open was sometimes necessary to observe heart action and at other times to massage the heart.”

Paul Ramsey, author of “The Ethics of Fetal Research,”writes that the longest Goodlin was able to keep a fetus alive was eleven days, adding, “Again, the experiments would have been pointless if those previable abortuses had not been importantly and relevantly ‘alive’ before yet having capacity for respiration.”

The Stanford Daily reported, “Funds for further research were halted in 1969 when it was decided that Goodlin and other scientists were ‘too far away’ from their goal of keeping the fetus alive outside the womb….”

The paper also stated:

Stanford, along with other medical schools in the nation, made their research widely known in Life magazine article in September, 1965. Life stated that Goodlin and other scientists were “working toward the day when it would become routine to save prematurely aborted fetuses at almost any age and carry them through to “birth” in artificial wombs.

… In 1965, Life magazine depicted a 10-week-old fetus kept alive in an artificial womb by Goodlin’s team of Stanford physicians. Goodlin said the objective at all times was “to preserve life.”

That same year, Life Magazine published Swedish photographer Lennart Nilsson’s photo essay, “Drama of Life Before Birth.” Nilsson later published many of the images in the book, “A Child is Born.”

Today, there seems to be a bit of a mystery about where Nilsson may have obtained his images. In fact, Time.com claims that some of those babies he photographed had been aborted:

Image: Life Magazine cover from 1965

Life Magazine cover from 1965

In the accompanying story, LIFE explained that all but one of the fetuses pictured were photographed outside the womb and had been removed—or aborted—“for a variety of medical reasons.” Nilsson had struck a deal with a hospital in Stockholm, whose doctors called him whenever a fetus was available to photograph. There, in a dedicated room with lights and lenses specially designed for the project, Nilsson arranged the fetuses so they appeared to be floating as if in the womb.

The website Making Visible Embryoscreated in part by an historian of biological and medical sciences, makes a similar claim:

Although claiming to show the living fetus, Nilsson actually photographed abortus material obtained from women who terminated their pregnancies under the liberal Swedish law. Working with dead embryos allowed Nilsson to experiment with lighting, background and positions, such as placing the thumb into the fetus’ mouth. But the origin of the pictures was rarely mentioned, even by ‘pro-life’ activists, who in the 1970s appropriated these icons.

Whether allegations that some of the photographed babies came from abortions is true or not is difficult to verify; however, a paper published in Bulletin of The History of Medicine, written by Solveig Julich, associate professor and senior lecturer at the Department of History of Science and Ideas at Uppsala University in Sweden, makes a compelling case. She writes in part:

He admitted that most of the pictures were of “fetuses, just removed surgically” in connection with miscarriages or extrauterine pregnancies. They looked as if they were alive because they were still alive. He had only a few minutes in which to take the pictures before they developed ugly blotches and were changed. A few of the pictures, Nilsson told the reporter, were “taken inside the mother by means of a cystoscope and a flash in connection with a necessary abortion.” But he insisted that his photographs should not be seen as a contribution to the abortion debate: all he wanted to do was to give a clear conception of the origin and development of human life.

In all fairness to Nilsson, now deceased, there is no way to absolutely confirm these allegations nor to understand fully what his motivation was, if, in fact, he did use aborted babies in his photography.

History is full of examples in which scientists and doctors went too far in their research on human subjects. The most vivid example of this comes out of the Holocaust, during which Nazi physicians believed the medical advances from experiments somehow justified their actions. In an article published by the Montreal Gazette, Dr. Hans Munch, an SS research pathologist at a Nazi institute near Auschwitz, described concentration camp physician Josef Mengele, who experimented on Jews inside the horrific camps:

Mengele saw the gassings as the only rational solution and argued that as the prisoners were going to be gassed anyway, there was no reason not to use them for medical experiments.

Sadly, that kind of reasoning for experimenting on human subjects sounds too familiar, as readers will see in parts two and three of this series on the history of experimentation on abortion survivors.

Planned Parenthood founder’s board member Lothrop Stoddard wanted ‘non-White races’ gone; met with Hitler

Posted in Lothrop Stoddard, Margaret Sanger, Margaret Sanger and AES, Planned Parenthood Board Member, Planned Parenthood Employee, Planned Parenthood Eugenics Connections, Planned Parenthood racist supporter with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 28, 2018 by saynsumthn

Margaret Sanger, founder of the American Birth Control League (ABCL), which became Planned Parenthoodin 1942, had on her ABCL board a number of controversial directors. Among them was a man named Lothrop Theodore Stoddard, a journalist and author who served on Sanger’s National Council, her ABCL Board of Directors, and the conference committee of the First American Birth Control Conference. He was also published in Sanger’s publication, the Birth Control Review (BCR). Like Sanger, Stoddard was a member of the American Eugenics Society and had connections to the Ku Klux Klan. And, like many within the eugenics movement who helped to found Planned Parenthood, Stoddard had a poor view of minorities and people of color.

                                                          Lathrop Stoddard, ABCL/Planned Parenthood Director

Stoddard is featured in a powerful documentary on the history of Planned Parenthood, which Live Action is screening on social media this week. It is called Maafa21: Black Genocide in 21st Century America and was produced by Life Dynamics, Inc., based out of Denton, Texas. The term eugenics, according to the film, was coined by Francis Galton, a cousin to Charles Darwin. Eugenicists like Stoddard and Sanger and others within her leadership believed that it was the superior race’s duty to limit the population of those who were seen by them as inferior. The American eugenics movement primarily set their eyes upon limiting the population of the Black race.

                                    Image: American Eugenics Society document

This can be seen fairly clearly in Stoddard’s book, “The Revolt Against Civilization: The Menace of the Under Man,” where he writes in part, “Much more serious is the problem presented by those far more numerous stocks which, while transcending the plane of mere savagery, have stopped at some level of barbarism…. Deceptive veneers of civilization may be acquired, but reversion to congenital barbarism ultimately takes place. To such barbarian stocks belong many of the people of Asia, the American Indians and the African [N]egroes. These congenital barbarians have always been dangerous foes of progress…”

Maafa21 quotes Stoddard as saying:

“Non-white races must be excluded from America … The red and black races if left to themselves revert to a savage or semi-savage stage in a short time.”

In the late 1920s, Stoddard was asked this question in a lively radio debate with WEB Dubois: “Shall the Negro be encouraged to seek cultural equality? Has the Negro the same intellectual possibilities as other races?”

His answer, “No!”

In 1920, Stoddard published his book, “The Rising Tide of Color Against White World Supremacy,” which contained numerous statements that today would be viewed as racist. The book was introduced by another eugenicist leader by the name of Madison Grant, whose own book, “The Passing of the Great Race,” was said to have been viewed as Adolf Hitler’s “bible” of sorts.

According to author Angela Franks, the text in Stoddard’s book contained such inflammatory statements as the following:

“‘Finally perish!’ That is the exact alternative which confronts the white race…. Just as we isolate the bacterial invasions, and starve out the bacteria, by limiting the area and amount of their food supply, so we can compel an inferior race to remain in its native habitat…”

Lothrop Stoddard wrote racist book The Rising Tide of Color, and sat on Margaret Sanger’s board

It was after “The Rising Tide of Color” was published that Sanger invited Stoddard to join her organization. His book was reviewed by Havelock Ellis, a long-time friend of Sanger’s, in a piece called, “The World’s Racial Problem,” published in the October 1920 edition of Sanger’s Birth Control Review. Although the review was, at times, critical of Stoddard, Ellis wrote in part:

Dr. Stoddard possesses, however, all the temperamental optimism and self-confidence of the white Nordic man whose champion he remains throughout…. Since by the prejudice of color, we must mostly be on his side in this matter, we may profitably meditate on the reasonable considerations he brings forward…. The old checks of the increase of population have largely fallen away, that is why we see today the excessive fertility which threatens to drown the whole world in blood. “The real enemy of the dove of peace,” as Stoddard put it, “is not the eagle of pride or the vulture of greed, but the stork.”

Ellis also wrote, “Looking at the matter, as Dr. Stoddard looks at it, from the white and more especially the Nordic standpoint, which is that of England even more than America, the danger that menaces our position is the immediate future, and our very existence on the more remote future is three fold: the peril of arms, the peril of markets and the peril of immigrants.”

According to Maafa21, Stoddard’s book was widely promoted by the Ku Klux Klan. The film also states that in another book, “The Dragon and the Cross,” Stoddard was identified as the Exalted Cyclops of the Massachusetts chapter of the Klan.

Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger herself once met with members of the Klan and described that meeting in her autobiography, writing in part,  “I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan…. I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses…. I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak…. In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.”

In 1921, Sanger’s BCR published the review of Stoddard’s “The Revolt Against Civilization,” which, according to reviewer, Juliet Barrett Rublee, Stoddard gave instructions for “race purification.” Rublee, a staunch birth control activist and friend of Sanger’s, described Stoddard’s book as “courageous, and full of fine enthusiasm and vigor of thought and spirit.”

The first step Stoddard recommended to protect the American population was, according to Rublee, “the prevention of all obvious degenerates from having children.” Another step to be taken, according to Stoddard, was “segregation of defectives, appreciation of racial principles, wise marriage selection, Birth Control: these are the main items in the program of race purification.” The BCR review quoted Stoddard as writing the following:

  • “We have among us, a rebel army, the vast host of unadaptable, the incapable, the morons, the disconnected, filled with instinctive hatred of civilization and progress and ready on the moment to rise in revolt.”
  • “[I]n every civilized country today the superior elements of the population are virtually stationary or actually declining in numbers, while the mediocre elements are rapidly increasing.”
  • “[I]ntelligence is today being steadily bred out of the American population.”
  • “The mere presence of hoards of low-grade men and women, condemned by their very nature to incompetency and failure, automatically engenders poverty, invited exploitation and drags down others just above them in the social scale. Here is the need for action most apparent.”

Stoddard’s racist ideology was totally in line with the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, according to Dr. Carolyn F. Gerster. Gerster’s research exposing Sanger’s connection to eugenics was published in this 1979 UPI article, where Gerster warned, “There is a… side to Margaret Sanger’s philosophy which must be exposed as it is surfacing in Planned Parenthood’s current policy.”

Live Action News has published extensive research on how Sanger made certain that eugenics movers and shakers were deeply embedded in her Planned Parenthood organization.

Below is a sample list of American Eugenics Society founders and members who were a part of Margaret Sanger’s board or organizations — leaders identified in the film, Maafa21. In addition to Sanger’s connections, Live Action News has documented that many of Planned Parenthood’s officials were members or leaders of the American Eugenics Society. (See a partial list here.)

In the aforementioned UPI article, Dr. Gerster noted that Stoddard’s views about the racist Nazi eugenics law of sterilization were very positive. She quoted Stoddard as saying, “The sterilization law is weeding out the worst strains of the Germanic stock is a scientific and truly humanitarian way.”

Maafa21 described Stoddard’s visit to Germany to witness a Nazi eugenics court:

On the 19th of December, 1939, during a four-month stay in Germany, Stoddard was given a personal meeting with both Adolf Hitler and the man who would eventually be in charge of the Nazi holocaust, SS leader Heinrich Himmler. Later, when a course on race was introduced at Halle University in Germany, its instructor stated that it would be modeled on the philosophies of American eugenicists including Lothrop Stoddard. Eventually, Stoddard’s racial views would even be featured in Nazi school textbooks.

                                                     Lothrop Stoddard, on Margaret Sanger board highlighted in Maafa21

Stoddard detailed his observations in witnessing the Nazi eugenics court, in another book, “Into the Darkness: An Uncensored Report from inside the Third Reich at war”:

The first case I saw looked like an excellent candidate for sterilization. A man in his mid-thirties, he was rather ape-like in appearance–receding forehead, flat nose with flaring nostrils, thick lips, and heavy prognathous jaw. Not vicious-looking, but gross and rather dull. His life-history was mildly anti-social–several convictions for minor thefts and one for a homosexual affair with another boy when a lad. In early manhood he had married a Jewess by whom he had three children, none of whom had showed up too well. That marriage had been dissolved under the Nuremberg Laws. He was now seeking to marry a woman who had already been sterilized as a moron. The law forbids a non-sterilized individual to marry a sterilized person; so he was more than willing to be also sterilized. The lower court recommended sterilization…

                       Lothrop Stoddard views Nazi eugenics court (Image credit: Maafa21)

Case Four was a seventeen-year-old girl. The issue was feeble-mindedness. She certainly looked feebleminded as she sat below the bench, hunched in a chair, with dull features and lackluster eyes. Left an orphan at an early age, she had had a haphazard upbringing. The record showed her to have been always shy, backward, and unable to keep up with normal schooling…

I came away convinced that the law was being administered with strict regard for its provisions and that, if anything, judgments were almost too conservative. On the evidence of that one visit, at least, the Sterilization Law is weeding out the worst strains in the Germanic stock in a scientific and truly humanitarian way.

The tragedy of eugenics, of which Sanger and Stoddard were a part, is that it may have influenced Hitler’s Nazi Holocaust, which targeted not only Jews, but the Afro-German community as well as the disabled, and beyond.

Today, in many ways, abortion is doing the exact same thing.

In fact, the same eugenics ideology that laid the groundwork for the Planned Parenthood organization is alive and well in pro-abortion philosophy. Maafa21 presents a compelling case for this connection. The film shows without exception that eugenics, abortion and Planned Parenthood are tied together. So, why do so many remain in denial?

Perhaps the answer to that is seen in the final words of one of the film’s narrators:

You know, when you study the Nazi holocaust, you can see these films of Jews running into ditches to be shot in the head. You can even see films of them actually walking into the gas chambers. And it is tempting to ask yourself why they didn’t fight back. I mean, if you’re going to be killed anyway, what have you got to lose?

Maafa21, Planned Parenthood

Maafa21 host talks about abortion

Perhaps the answer is that they simply could not believe it was really happening. Maybe the normal human mind is just not wired to accept that your fellow man is capable of such senseless brutality on such a scale – even when you see it happening with your own eyes.

As African-Americans, we need to recognize that we are doing the same thing. We need to understand that terms like “pro-choice” and “reproductive rights” and “family planning” are nothing more than marketing slogans. They are just code words that organizations like Planned Parenthood use to hide the fact that we are voluntarily submitting to the will of those who have been trying to exterminate us….

Live Action will be screening Maafa21 live on its social media pages and will be sharing clips of the film throughout the rest of February.

Fetal tissue docs reveal history’s lessons weren’t learned regarding medical experiments on humans

Posted in Aborted Baby Body Parts, Center for Medical Progress, Nazi, Planned Parenthood sells aborted baby parts with tags , , , , , , , , on April 8, 2016 by saynsumthn

E-mail evidence on the ghoulish Planned Parenthood baby parts investigations published by a national newspaper reminds us that there are profound lessons not learned in history. When America was confronted with the shocking Nazi medical experiments on the Jews, they were horrified. The media was especially engaged, attending the trials and publishing stories on a regular basis.

Nazi Medical Group on Trial

According to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum:

    Between 1939 and 1945, at least seventy medical research projects involving cruel and often lethal experimentation on human subjects were conducted in Nazi concentration camps. These projects were carried out by established institutions within the Third Reich and fell into three areas: research aimed at improving the survival and rescue of German troops; testing of medical procedures and pharmaceuticals; and experiments that sought to confirm Nazi racial ideology. More than seven thousand victims of such medical experiments have been documented. Victims include Jews, Poles, Roma (Gypsies), political prisoners, Soviet prisoners of war, homosexuals, and Catholic priests.

Today, medical experiments using human babies are being carried out by established institutions like Planned Parenthood, Stem Express, and many Universities among others. And, just as in the days of the Jewish Holocaust, much of society is silent! The media is by and large ignoring the ongoing investigation into the marketing of aborted baby body parts by Planned Parenthood. So, kudos to the New York Times who, in what appeared to be simple journalistic obligation and not outrage, chose to publish documents from the investigation. They included letters from members of Congress, letters from medical practitioners and email exchanges on tissue requests. The documents hidden inside the PDF upload would appear to be simple pieces of paper until you realize that what is being described on those pages is the dismembering and parceling of human babies.

One heavily redacted email from University of California, San Diego regarding human fetal tissue requests read in part:

    Next time you go to PP [short for Planned Parenthood], can you try to get pancreas as well as liver?

Planned Parenthood Pancreas baby parts abortion

The response:

    On Friday I’m going to PP and I will collect liver tissue…

Another reply:

    Great to hear that, I need a few more fetal pancreas samples…

In another document marked Exhibit 1, also heavily redacted so you cannot read who it is from, reads in part:

    We are now ready to include the skull if you could please include that in our order for tomorrow…

Ironically, that correspondence was dated January 21, 2015 one day prior to the date that memorializes that SCOTUS decision which legalized abortion.

planned-parenthood-video-crush-b

The investigation by a select Congressional panel follows an undercover investigation by the Center for Medical Progress. The pro-life organization secretly recorded high ranking Planned Parenthood medical officials describing how they would obtain the parts of human babies and then sell them for research. In one exchange Planned Parenthood Federation Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, is heard describing how she will crush the parts above and below whatever the researchers request:

    The kind of rate-limiting step of the procedure is calvarium. Calvarium—the head—is basically the biggest part. …

    We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact. And with the calvarium, in general, some people will actually try to change the presentation so that it’s not vertex. …

The document marked Exhibit B3 is an almost haunting reenactment of that description, reading:

The Calvarium [ fetal head] is mostly in tact with a tear up the back suture line, but all pieces look to be there.

    The limbs, one upper and one lower are totally in tact, with upper broken at the humerus, and on lower broken right above the knee…

Calvarium PLanned Parenthood baby parts

The horrifying nature of these documents represent a setback for humanity. It wasn’t that long ago when the revelations of medical experiments on humans by the Nazi’s garnered outrage from society. Following the discovery of Nazi experimental laboratories by allied forces, Nazi war crimes tribunals were held leading to the hanging of several Nazi offenders.

A review of those events documented by PBS, which has yet to condemn Planned Parenthood, reads:

    Researchers at Buchenwald concentration camp developed a method of individual execution by injecting Russian prisoners with phenol and cyanide. Experimenters also tested various poisons on the human body by secreting noxious chemicals in prisoners’ food or shooting inmates with poison bullets. Victims who did not die during these experiments were killed to allow the experimenters to perform autopsies.

    To learn if a limb or joint from one person could be successfully attached to another who had lost that limb or joint, experimenters at Ravensbruck amputated legs and shoulders from inmates in useless attempts to transplant them onto other victims. They also removed sections of bones, muscles, and nerves from prisoners to study regeneration of these body parts. Victims suffered excruciating pain, mutilation, and permanent disability as a result.

A series of Nazi letters transcribed by the Jewish Virtual Library are as follows:

Nazi Letters medical experiments

Nazi Letters medical experiments2

In his 1999 Chicago Tribune review of the documentary “Healing by Killing” John Petrakis, he warns us how easy it is for doctors to use experimentation to bend the Hippocratic Oath, writing:

    this sobering documentary, which is based on the book “The Nazi Doctors” by American psychiatrist Robert Jay Lifton (who also provides some vital onscreen narration), should serve as a terrible reminder to doctors around the world just how easy it is to bend the Hippocratic oath.

James Bowman, Resident Scholar at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, summarized the film this way:

    It is perhaps not too much to say that “It was the doctors who paved the way for the holocaust. . .It was medical ideology which led to Hitler and the Nazis,” since there is no reason to suppose that medical ideology is any more benign than the other ideologies which have killed so many in our century. But there is a particularly worrying aspect to any ideology that finds it so easy to stake a claim to “scientific” respectability. It is well to remember that, as Lifton recalls, “We [doctors] are descended from Shamans” and other primitive practitioners of sorcery and magic, so that people are in awe of our “magical powers to kill or heal.” That is why, he says, the Hippocratic oath is full of warnings against doing harm— “as if they knew doctors could be dangerous.”

These lessons not learned from history are a blight on our society. This time, instead of condemning the atrocities against humans, they are being deliberately swept under the rug and labeled innocent “medical research.” The reality is, nothing could be further from the truth!

When FAKE DOCUMENTS save lives: CMP pro-life leader indicted as Planned Parenthood walks

Posted in Center for Medical Progress with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 26, 2016 by saynsumthn

David Daleiden Planned Parenthood Center for Medical Progress

The Houston Chronicle has reported that rather than indicting a Houston Planned Parenthood for illegally selling aborted baby parts, a grand jury instead indicted Center for Medical Progress undercover journalists behind the allegations.
Capture

enhanced-mid-16421-1444141495-2

The Harris County grand jury indicted David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt on charges of tampering with a governmental record, after they allegedly created a fake I.D. in their undercover sting. The charge is a second-degree felony with a possible sentence of up to 20 years in prison. It also charged Daleiden, with the same misdemeanor he had alleged – the purchase or sale of human organs, presumably because he had offered to buy in an attempt to provoke Planned Parenthood employees into saying they would sell.

The decision has shocked many prompting the public to ask how Planned Parenthood could be cleared and the undercover journalists, who did what other journalists have done, are being indicted.

If you believe the unborn child in the womb is human, then all you need do is look to other times in history when life was cheapened and those who protected it were called criminals.

And, since the issue here is FAKE DOCUMENTS – we can see that in times past other “criminals” resorted to using fake papers to save lives – below is a small snippet:

Nazi fake docs jews

According to the United States Holocaust Museum:

    For Jews to pass as “Aryans,” it was essential to have false identity papers, which were often gained through contacts with the anti-Nazi resistance. Using forged or acquired papers, such as a birth or baptismal certificate, Jews sometimes could obtain legitimate documents under an assumed name from the authorities. These ruses posed great risks to the bearer since the Germans and collaborating police forces closely examined identity documents in their frequent searches for Jews, resistance members, and individuals evading conscript labor.

EXAMPLES:

Adolfo Kaminsky started forging documents after escaping deportation to a Nazi death camp. The Frenchman went on to become one of the world’s best forgers, creating documents that saved the lives of Jews, spies and freedom fighters. But even his daughter knew nothing about the real man behind the fake documents…Kaminsky was a forger and counterfeiter for purely humanitarian reasons. During World War II, he produced amazingly authentic-looking blank passports that saved many Jews from certain death. Later, he provided left-wing underground organizations with stacks of fake identifications papers. His family was kept completely in the dark about these activities.

It was ordinary German people who fought to help persecuted Jews during the war. Out of Christian charity, friendship, love, or because they did not agree with the politics of the National Socialists. They provided food and supplies, forged documents and hiding places. They saved Jews from deportation trains or even from concentration camps. Such as the caretaker who helped to alleviate the suffering of an elderly man in a Jewish retirement home. The married couple from Frankfurt who hid a young man in their attic who had fled from the Majdanek concentration camp. The priest who acted as an escape agent. The police officer who tampered with registration papers so that it was possible for a number of Jews to survive in the city of Frankfurt. (Source)

Thanks to the bravery of a Catholic family, a Jewish teenager in Poland obtained false identification papers during World War II. Posting as a Catholic, she worked several years in a posh hotel in Germany – surrounded by Nazi officers. Sabina Schwartz Zimering was 16 when she and her family were rounded up by Nazis in 1939 and forced into a ghetto in her hometown in Poland. Worse was coming, and the family knew it. “We’ve got to do something,” the girl pleaded with her mother after three years in the ghetto. “I’m 19. I don’t want to die.” Her mother – once dignified; by then starving, scared and depressed – said nothing could be done. “What will happen to others will happen to us,” she said flatly. But later she suggested that her daughter turn to a Catholic friend for help. Maybe Danka Justnya would give Sabina her identification papers, then pretend she had lost them and ask authorities for a replacement passport. It was a daring move for Sabina’s family, and it put the Catholic family in tremendous jeopardy. Yet the Catholic friends came through for them. They provided false identities – not only for her sister and mother. (Not for the little brother, though. It would be useless. The Nazis routinely checked males for circumcisions. Rarely was a European non-Jew circumcised in that time.) Before the war, Sabina’s family was photographed on a street of their town in Poland. Her father, Bernard Schwartz, and mother, Teofila, were with their two daughters, Helka, left, and Sabina, right. Their little brother had not been born. Hours before the Gestapo rushed into town to round up the Jews and send them to their deaths, Sabina and her sister escaped. For two years, they posed as Polish Catholics in Germany.

The workers were “hired” to help the Nazis construct a wall along the Atlantic coast of Europe, but the men never laid a brick or even showed up at the work site. Dutch architect Jaap Penraat, who gave the men the bogus jobs, also gave them their lives. It was 1942, and Jews faced death in concentration camps if they remained in the Nazi-occupied Netherlands. So Penraat forged work permits and traveling papers, disguised young Jewish men as workers, then escorted them by train to France. From there the French Underground took them to safe houses in Gibraltar or Portugal and on to Britain. By the time World War II ended, Penraat had made that dangerous journey 20 times and saved 406 Jews from death. Decades later, he was honored by the Dutch government and in 1997 by Yad Vashem, the Holocaust museum in Israel. Penraat died June 25 of esophageal cancer at his home in Catskill, N.Y. He was 88.

In his 2006 book, “Among the Righteous,” Robert Satloff, director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, uncovered stories of Arabs who saved Jews during the Holocaust, and included a chapter on the Grand Mosque. Dalil Boubakeur, the current rector, confirmed to him that some Jews — up to 100 perhaps — were given Muslim identity papers by the mosque, without specifying a number. Mr. Boubakeur said individual Muslims brought Jews they knew to the mosque for help, and the chief imam, not Benghabrit, was the man responsible. (SOURCE: Heroic Tale of Holocaust, With a Twist By ELAINE SCIOLINO – New York Times )

Gino Bartali was part of a secret Italian resistance movement which helped hide the country’s Jews during the Nazi invasion of 1943. Using the handlebars on his bike to hide counterfeit identity papers, Bartali would ride to Jews in hiding and deliver their exit visas which allowed them to escape transportation to the death camps — he is credited with saving the lives of 800 people…It was not just the rescued who were grateful to Bartali, those who were involved in creating the counterfeit papers in Assisi also took courage from the cyclist’s fearlessness. Worked in the counterfeiting business, Trento Brizi explained how Bartali’s influence gave him courage at a time where the Nazis began to get suspicious. In the book, Road to Valor, Brizi said: “The idea of taking part in an organization that could boast of a champion like Gino Bartali among its ranks, filled me with such pride that my fear took a back seat.” According to Yad Vashem, the Holocaust museum in Jerusalem, 7,680 out of 44,500 Italian Jews were killed by the Nazis…While Bartali rarely spoke of his actions before he passed away in 2000, his son, Andrea, attended the ceremony and met survivors, who had been helped by his father’s actions. (SOURCE: Gino Bartali: The man who helped save Italy’s Jews By James Masters, CNN )

I am sure there are many more of these kind of stories, but you get my point.

According to historian Martin Gilbert, approximately 800, 000 Jews escaped or found refuge during the Holocaust, less than one seventh the number of Jews murdered. However, for those who did survive, documents played a key role. Not surprisingly, many survivors have kept their old passports, letters and forged certificates as a testament to the means by which they eluded Hitler’s Final Solution.

Planned Parenthood defender Nomiki Konst no clue who Mengele is while discussing baby parts harvesting on O’Reilly

On tonight’s O’Reilly Factor the subject was the new Center for Medical Progress video showing Stem Express CEO discussing they way they will ship a whole aborted baby head.

His guests included Monica Crowley and Planned Parenthood supporter Nomiki Konst.

There were several times I yelled at the screen including when Konst told O’Reilly abortions were illegal after 23 weeks.

That is such a bold faced lie and a quick look at a few abortion clinic ads and an educated read of the Roe v. Wade decision would have set the record straight.

Late term abortion

Even Planned Parenthood which Konst was defending agrees with late term abortions as I document here and here.

But the most ignorant thing is that Konst had no clue who Josef Mengele was and if his actions were like Planned Parenthood.


    Bill O’Reilly
    : You Know Josef Mengele…Nomiki you know who he was?
    Nomiki: Tell me?
    Bill O’Reilly: He was a Nazi doctor who performed experiments on children and babies. Is there any difference between this and what he was doing?
    Nomiki: I think there is quite a bit of a difference here. There is the intent. A lot of our medical procedures are done on these types of tissues. We don’t want to hear about it – it is legal.

Not knowing anything about the wicked Nazi “Angel of Death” who executed excruciating experiments on Jews and others inside German concentration camps, the Planned Parenthood supporter said there were no similarities between the two.

Her ignorance did not go unnoticed and has become a point of jesting on Twitter where the Planned Parenthood supporter tried to walk her statements back by claiming she knew who Mengele was, calling her critics “trolls:”

Nomiki Konst Mengele Planned Parenthood OReilly troll

Konst’s next tweet proved the Mengele / Planned Parenthood connection, where she stated, “I think some are confused by my statement; It’s legal to use tissue for medical research. That’s how we find cures for diseases.”

I quickly pointed out to her that her reasoning mirrored Mengele, tweeting, “WOW same reasoning as #Mengele http://wp.me/ptUz8-9zc

History repeats itself in “Backing Planned Parenthood”

Oxford Scholarship Online describes a chapter in Robert Gellately’s book, Backing Hitler entitled, Concentration Camps in Public Spaces, this way:

Backing Hitler9780198205609

    This chapter discusses how concentration camps became firmly established in the public mind. As the war dragged on, the camp world invaded everyday life as never before, and confronted citizens with the cruellest sides of the dictatorship. Camp prisoners and slave workers appeared in public spaces all over Germany, from factories to city streets, and became impossible to overlook. By and large, Germans regarded the prisoners in their telltale camp garb and often in wooden shoes in terms they had come to accept from pre-war propaganda. Although there are stories from survivors of the help and comfort they received, the overwhelming impression is that Germans were at best indifferent and fearful, and at worst they shared the guards’ scorn, hostility, and hatred.

This, my friends describes modern day America.

Abortion death chambers have so invaded every aspect of American society that we drive by their butcher mills with barely a wince of horror.

Planned Parenthood brags to having hundreds of centers across the United States and openly reports performing hundreds of thousands of abortions annually and yet, our government rewards them with half a billion dollars in federal tax monies each year.

Writing in The Guardian, John Ezard’s review of Backing Hitler reads this way in part:

    They knew concentration camps were full of Jewish people who were stigmatized as sub-human and race-defilers. They knew that these, like other groups and minorities, were being killed out of hand.

    They knew that Adolf Hitler had repeatedly forecast the extermination of every Jew on German soil. They knew these details because they had read about them. They knew because the camps and the measures which led up to them had been prominently and proudly reported step by step in thousands of officially-inspired German media articles and posters…

They knew…

They – the German people knew and today America knows.

They know.

Ezard’s review of the book continues, “Professor Gellately says, destroy the claim – generally made by Germans after Berlin fell in 1945 and accepted by most historians – that they did not know about camp atrocities. He concludes by indicating that the only thing many Germans may not have known about was the use of industrial-scale gas chambers because, unusually, no media reports were allowed of this “final solution”. However, by the end of the war camps were all over the country and many Germans worked in them.”

Anyone else see a parallel here?

Alter process intact fetal cadavers Planned Parenthood

Tonight is the eve of video #5 exposing Planned Parenthood’s baby parts harvesting scheme.

We’ve just past the “can it get any worse” threshold and then- it did!

Not because Planned Parenthood was behaving any less the killers they are, but, because, as horrific as these videos are, people are still denying they are doing anything wrong.

Yesterday 46 US Senators voted that Planned Parenthood should continue to be funded – WHAT?

Yeah, my sentiments exactly.

Worse yet, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and many other “notables” remain committed to their support of the abortion behemoth.

Writer David Neese summarizes the prevailing attitude among those who deny the evil of abortion and Planned Parenthood, writing, “ That baby-like object in the sonogram must at all costs never be acknowledged as a baby. Nor even as an unborn baby. Planned Parenthood partisans must dig in and hold the line: That human-looking fetus isn’t really human. It’s “uterine contents.” Nothing more.

“Planned Parenthood asks: “Who you gonna believe? Us or your own eyes?”

If the subject were not so serious, I would describe Neese as almost poetic when he added:

    Those who insist on believing their own eyes can’t be disproved. So they must be discredited. They’re religious fanatics. Extremists. They’re misogynistic male militants from the old patriarchy waging a last-ditch war on women.

    Euphemisms are essential to the Planned Parenthood abortion enterprise.

    They’re the lubricant that keeps the gear works from locking up. Thus the grisly extirpation of a fetus is merely a “procedure.” Planned Parenthood doctors may talk during a business lunch of avoiding “crunchy” extraction maneuvers to maximize a useable research specimen for a buyer. But there’ll be no such descriptive chitchat with the prospective abortion customers.

    planned-parenthood-video-crush-b

    No point in making the customer wince. Avoid any mention of crushing a fetus’ head. Instead, say: “intrauterine cranial decompression.” In fact, avoid any mention of familiar body parts. Such reference may anthropomorphize the fetus. Don’t want that. Stick to clinical terms. Don’t say “head.” Say: “calvarium.”

And then there is the public.

Many are shocked at the callous conversations Planned Parenthood is having haggling over selling human baby organs while enjoying a meal or relaxing inside a conference room.

Savita Ginde Planned Parenthood brain

They are stunned that babies referred to as “intact fetal cadavers” are being kept frozen inside Planned Parenthood freezers until path lab ghouls can rummage their bodies to strain out every ounce of possible profit from the innocent child.

But, as I asked in a previous Op-Ed, exactly what did America think abortion was?

Didn’t they know?

Yes, they, like the Germans, knew.

The public knew this is abortion – they had to.

For over 42 years, we have told them, showed them, stood on street corners to cry out to them. Did they hear us?

Dachua

Ralph Rudquist was a radio man with company LL of the 22nd Infantry in 1945 when he helped to liberate the German camp Dachau.

We were taken a back,” he told The Evening Independent in 1981.

The people who came in after us didn’t have as much experience, and they were bawling and crying.

Rudquist continued, “When we entered Dachau the crematories were still operating. I saw piles of bodies as high as this ceiling. So they kept the crematories going. They kept this going day and night. The bodies that they were cremating were just skin and bones.”

Adding, “It was certainly true. Some people say there was no Holocaust. They were wrong,” he said.

That is what we see today from the American public.

Rudquist Nazi Holocaust

Those of us on the front lines know – we see it daily. The precious unborn babies are embedded into our very hearts.

But, now, the American public is filing past their dead bodies.

Seeing the arms, legs, skulls, laid out in petri dishes inside the American death camps of Planned Parenthood.

Private Francis Arzt of the 59th Evacuation Hospital who also arrived in Dachau, took pictures of the Nazi victims, “They can’t say this was a made-up Hollywood production,” he said.

Ironically, that is exactly what some Planned Parenthood supporters are calling Center for Medical Progress videos today, accusing them of being “highly edited” despite full versions being posted for all to watch.

Yeah – where have we heard that before?

Hitler attack on Jews exaggerated

Hitler abuse of Jews exaggerated

Holocaust survivor, Helen Lukensberg survived a Nazi camp in Poland,”People say there was no Holocaust,” she told the paper.

“It isn’t true. Where is all my family? Where is everybody?” she asked.

Rudquist recalls when he first saw Hitler’s concentration camp victims, “Suddenly we all understood what we had been fighting for,” he said.

I think the (CMP) videos we have watched, especially the last few, which brought us up front deep into Planned Parenthood’s dissection rooms, have done that for all of us.

Yes, suddenly we all understand what we are fighting for!

My thoughts after first vids:
When it comes to Planned Parenthood’s ghoulish crimes, are we all guilty?

My thoughts after video #4:
On abortion’s evil in the world: act as an “upstander” not “bystander”
