Adolph Hitler accomplished much for Germany. In his own words from a speech in 1939 …
” … I overcame chaos in Germany, restored order, enormously raised production in all fields of our national economy … “
These are accomplishments any American could relate to, aren’t they? Mr. Hitler really put government to work for his people:
“I succeeded in completely resettling in useful production those 7 million unemployed who so touched our hearts… “
Mr. Hitler created massive public works programs like the German Autobahn to employ people, something the American Democratic Party reveres.
“I have restored to the Reich the provinces grabbed from us in 1919; I have led millions of deeply unhappy Germans, who have been snatched away from us, back into the Fatherland; I have restored the thousand year old historical unity of German living space.”
Sounds a little like today’s Palestinians, a cause to which American liberals relate.
So, you see, Hitler did some good stuff. It just doesn’t seem right for people to dwell on the six million Jews he killed and on the World War he started. We need a balanced perspective in assessing a man. Right?
That is what supporters of Planned Parenthood tell us about an issue raging here in Des Moines, Iowa.
A woman with a resume filled with accomplishment was chosen to be recognized at Dowling Catholic High School until it was learned she had served on the board of Planned Parenthood for several years.
She withdrew her name from consideration after parents who support the Church’s position on life brought this information to the attention of the Principal and the Bishop.
Letter after letter has appeared in the Des Moines Register praising Planned Parenthood for the counseling, the education, and the “reproductive health” services they provide to the poor.
These people are furious with Dowling for not recognizing a woman who supports the mission of an organization that kills the pre-born.
Think about this for a minute. The Catholic Church views us to be fully human at conception, fully entitled to human rights.
Planned Parenthood doesn’t.
In the view of the Church, Planned Parenthood kills and profits from killing the most vulnerable amongst us.
They have killed far more human beings than Adolph Hitler killed Jews. The philosophy of their founder, Margaret Sanger, shares a kinship with Mr. Hitler’s philosophy:
“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
Like Hitler, Margaret Sanger wanted to rid society of “inferior” human beings. To that aim, Planned Parenthood today opens clinics in inner cities near the highest concentrations of the African-Americans. Over half of black pregnancies end in abortion, most of which are performed by Planned Parenthood.
So, should we praise Adolph Hitler and Planned Parenthood for the “good” that they’ve done … or not?
Does the Jewish Anti-Defamation League honor Hitler?
Then how can the Catholic Church honor anyone associated with Planned Parenthood?
