Did you know?

"Wartime” said Hitler,” is the best time for the elimination of the incurably ill.“ At the beginning of World War II individuals with disabilities were the first to be killed. It was practicing on these people that led to the refinement of the gas chambers used to exterminate Jews. The practice was called the T-4 or Euthanasia Program. “Patients from institutions were killed in specially constructed gas chambers. Handicapped infants and smaller children were killed by injection with deadly doses of drugs or starvation. The bodies of the victims burned in large ovens or crematoria."

In the United Kingdom, physicians are actively encouraging the euthanization of newborn babies born with disabilities as a way to “spare parents emotional and financial burden.”

In the Netherlands, the Groningen Protocol proposes criteria for euthanizing babies and children with disabilities.

Derek Humphrey co-founder of The Hemlock Society, who has written in his own book, Final Exit, that the “pitiful existence” of "the disabled" is better to be cut short than lived. A quote from Dr. Jack Kevorkian, “The voluntary self-elimination of individual and (sic) mortally diseased and crippled lives taken collectively can only enhance the preservation of public health and welfare.”

A world renowned embryologist Mr. Bob Edwards has said, “Soon it will be a sin for parents to have a child that carries the heavy burden of genetic disease. We are entering a world where we have to consider the quality of our children.”

The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology is urging women of all ages to undergo prenatal testing for Down syndrome, while statistics show that “85% of pregnancies diagnosed with Down syndrome end in abortion."

The U.N. Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities recognized in its preamble, “The inherent dignity and worth and equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family as the fountain of freedom, justice, and peace in the world.”

Please stop and think about it.

Please feel free to ask for my sources if you are interested. A person whom I greatly admire, we shall call her Mo has advised me that I should always have research to support what I say, so I've got it if you need it! Thanks Mo!
