Via Daily Mail:

The Vatican’s semi-official newspaper has angered supporters of euthanasia and abortions by suggesting they apply the same justifications that were used by the Nazis to champion their murderous eugenics programme.

The controversial claim that they believe in the survival of the fittest concept, was made in an article on the front page of today’s issue of L’Osservatore RomanO.

It was published in response to the recent Italian translation of a 1920 book titled Allowing the Destruction of Life Unworthy of Living, by two German scholars, Karl Binding and Alfred Hoche.

It is written by Lucetta Scaraffia, an Italian historian who frequently has work published in the Vatican paper, reports the Huffington Post.

It’s scary isn’t it?
Beck is right, the Nazis are back.

Full blown self proclaimed Nazis are now in the Greek government. We should be afraid, very afraid.

Life unworthy of living.

The Socialist Utopians continue to bang the drum of death on demand.

They do use the same arguments...

Professors: Babies Don’t Know They’re Killed in Abortions

The moral status of an infant is equivalent to that of a fetus in the sense that both lack those properties that justify the attribution of a right to life to an individual.

Both a fetus and a newborn certainly are human beings and potential persons, but neither is a ‘person’ in the sense of ‘subject of a moral right to life’. We take ‘person’ to mean an individual who is capable of attributing to her own existence some (at least) basic value such that being deprived of this existence represents a loss to her. This means that many non-human animals and mentally retarded human individuals are persons, but that all the individuals who are not in the condition of attributing any value to their own existence are not persons. Merely being human is not in itself a reason for ascribing someone a right to life. Indeed, many humans are not considered subjects of a right to life: spare embryos where research on embryo stem cells is permitted, fetuses where abortion is permitted, criminals where capital punishment is legal.

Hitler and his NAZIs justified.

Intellectuals only exist if you think they do.

The Golden Dawn are not Nazi’s per say, but are more of a “classical” fascists group.

And remember the agenda of who is reporting the news.

The editors at L’Osservatore Romano have been reading Bishop Jenky's homily.

Readers in the DM comments are consistently red arrowing prolife comments. We know where the Brits are headed.


Which is odd, because most DM readers tend to be pro life.
