It’s Getting Tough To Tell Planned Parenthood From Nazis

It’s Getting Tough To Tell Planned Parenthood From Nazis

Say what you want about the tenets of National Socialism, dude—at least it’s an ethos. Planned Parenthood’s just in it for the money.

German SS officer and Auschwitz “physician” Josef Mengele once wrote, “There’s only one truth and one true beauty …There’s no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ in nature. There’s only ‘appropriate’ or ‘inappropriate’… Both sides receive equal chances. Nevertheless, nature provides a strainer. Things that are ‘inappropriate’ fall through since they lose in the struggle for survival.”

More lately, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director for medical services, had this to say: “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.”

It’s almost like Planned Parenthood is the strainer and babies, those inappropriate little consequences of life, fall through in the struggle for survival while the organs, the appropriate parts, survive and get sold at market. Ain’t progress grand?

What Are You, an Anti-Vaxxer?

Obviously I’m stretching the truth here. I mean, we are just talking about clumps of cells transferred out for research that just might help those babies fortunate enough to not get dismembered.

#PlannedParenthood is trending because they sell cells of aborted fetuses for med research, so your baby doesn’t die from a bad vaccine…

That’s completely different than this aspect of Nazi research: “At the German concentration camps of Sachsenhausen, Dachau, Natzweiler, Buchenwald, and Neuengamme, scientists tested immunization compounds and sera for the prevention and treatment of contagious diseases, including malaria, typhus, tuberculosis, typhoid fever, yellow fever, and infectious hepatitis.”

On the one hand, you have scientists using human life to do medical research to try to develop better vaccines. On the other you have scientists using human to life to do medical research to try to develop better vaccines. Clearly, those things are entirely different.

Don’t Hate on Family Planning

How could someone compare Planned Parenthood and Nazi medical experiments? Planned Parenthood isn’t really about killing children and harvesting their organs. That only comprises 3 percent of their work. Seriously, you guys. Mostly they’re about sexually transmitted diseases and birth control: “All of us who need birth control want to find the method that is best for us. If you’re trying to choose, learning about each method may help you make your decision. Use the list of birth control methods above to read about the methods.”

Planned Parenthood isn’t really about killing children and harvesting their organs. That only comprises 3 percent of their work.

The Nazis were in no way concerned with birth control. Wait, they actually were, although I will concede their methods were a little more extreme. For example, Dr. Carl Clauberg “developed a method of non-surgical mass sterilization that consisted of introducing into the female reproductive organs a specially prepared chemical irritant that produced severe inflammation. Within several weeks, the fallopian tubes grew shut and were blocked.”

Obviously, though, I’m still being ridiculous. On the one hand, we have a group focused on helping adults make responsible choices to improve mankind’s lot in life. On the other, we have a murderous regime whose founder was a big fan of that group. As my colleague Sean Davis noted, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was actually rather keen on Nazi programs:

Again, however, we must stress the fact that in a national program for human conservation institutional and voluntary sterilization are not enough; they do not reach those elements at large in the population whose children are a menace to the national health and well-being.

Reports in medical journals state that the indications laid down in the German law are being carefully observed. These are gongenital feeble-mindedness; schizophrenia, circular insanity; heredity epilepsy; hereditary chorea (Huntington’s)’ hereditary blindness or deafness; grave hereditary bodily deformity and chronic alcoholism.

But is that fair? We’re talking about eugenicists, which are in no way similar to people who abort because their child may have a disability. Oh, wait. These numbers regarding the prevalence of abortion when prenatal screening discovers a child may have Down Syndrome, just to name one disability, and the fact that Planned Parenthood is the United States’s number one abortion provider, and we’re right back in Third Reich territory.

What About the Numbers?

On the lower end of the scale, it’s thought the Holocaust claimed between 5 and 6 million lives. A newer study suggests the number was actually around 20 million. How many abortions have been performed since Roe vs. Wade? Somewhere in the neighborhood of 54 million.

How many abortions have been performed since Roe vs. Wade? Somewhere in the neighborhood of 54 million.

Of course, Planned Parenthood hasn’t performed all those abortions, but it’s making moves to increase its share. Just give it time, especially as the filthy lucre obtained from those harvested blobs of cells organs becomes an important revenue stream. For the patients, of course.

As Nucatola herself told the “buyer” in this video, “For affiliates, at the end of the day, they’re a nonprofit, they just don’t want to—they want to break even. And if they can do a little better than break even, and do so in a way that seems reasonable, they’re happy to do that. Really, their bottom line is, they want to break even. Every penny they save is a just pennies they give to another patient. To provide a service the patient wouldn’t get.”

At the End of the Day, It’s the Ethos

Eric Ferrero, Planned Parenthood’s vice president of communications, released the following response to these revelations of his organization’s organ harvesting and sales:

In health care, patients sometimes want to donate tissue to scientific research that can help lead to medical breakthroughs, such as treatments and cures for serious diseases. Women at Planned Parenthood who have abortions are no different. At several of our health centers, we help patients who want to donate tissue for scientific research, and we do this just like every other high-quality health care provider does — with full, appropriate consent from patients and under the highest ethical and legal standards. There is no financial benefit for tissue donation for either the patient or for Planned Parenthood. In some instances, actual costs, such as the cost to transport tissue to leading research centers, are reimbursed, which is standard across the medical field.

Ferrero might want to check with Nucatola about that “no financial benefit” part. He might also want to get his science on and learn the difference between tissue and an organ. As long as he’s doing some homework and not just spitting propaganda, he might want to imbibe the truth offered by Walter Sobchak in “The Big Lebowski,” because while Planned Parenthood and the National Socialist Party’s rationales for medical experimentation and murder track closely, there’s a major difference. It actually makes us realize Planned Parenthood is worse than were the Nazis.

See, Planned Parenthood is run by a bunch of nihilists, as evidenced by the fact that they obviously find life meaningless. Nihilists! I mean, say what you want about the tenets of National Socialism, at least it’s an ethos, a philosophy of life that attempts to provide meaning to and excuses for butchery. When it comes to harvesting organs for sale, solely for the sake of $30 to $100, you’ve officially abandoned any claim to an ethos, even a disgusting and misguided one. When you have no intention of stopping, because progress! even as the death toll rises, you’re nothing more than state-sponsored murderers.
