The murder of Terri Schiavo is an established fact, the points long discussed.
Mae Magouirk, an 85 year old woman of Lagrange, Georgia, took the trouble to make clear her wishes to continue receiving food and water, through a living will. Now, a relative with no legal standing has convinced a judge to murder her, anyway.
Steven D Levitt, a delusional economist, now argues that Abortion cut crime, an argument the New York Times finds worth advocating, regardless of the actual facts, which are evident in a simple consideration of modern cases like the Peterson murder, the "Railway Murder" serial killings, or Columbine High School.
It goes all the way back to 1859, when Charles Darwin wrote a book, now famously used to bolster the now-mainline theory of human existence. The entire title is noteworthy, however:
“On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.” [emphasis mine]
Yep. The book which became the basis for Evolution’s support in Science, was based on the claim that certain races were superior. While Darwin is careful to cite botanical examples, moving to insects and avian samples, he mixes them together in a rhetorical stew with little empirical evidence; his work reads like a dull novel, but for all its mendacity a clearly racist and sexist theme is clear.
Francis Galton (1822-1911) took the next step, which he initially called “deliberate social intervention”, but which became better known as the theory of Eugenics. Eugenics included the advocacy that only certain races should be allowed to have children, and “inferior” types, including people with physical or mental handicaps. Galton explained his theory as the “logical application of evolution to the human race.”
In 1904 the first Chair for a professorship in Eugenics was instituted at University College, London. The Galton Laboratory for National Eugenics was founded in 1907. In 1910, the Eugenic Record Office was founded in the United States. These groups pursued political influence for the purpose of advancing eugenics policies.
In 1931, Dr. Charles Killick Millard,president of the Society of Medical Officers of Health, brought up the question of voluntary euthanasia, and proposed a suitable law.
“Project T4” was instituted in 1938 in Germany, initially as a plan to collect information on candidates for euthanasia. The committee in charge of the project was officially named the “Realms Committee for Scientific Approach to Severe Illness Due to Heridity”, and many of its members were put in charge of “Final Solution” camp implementations, as the hospitals used the same gas-showers and crematorium process as became infamous years later at the concentration camps.
Margaret Sanger, who founded Planned Parenthood, was oustpoken in her opinions.
In her book, Women and the New Race (1920), she wrote “The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."
In her book, Pivot of Civilization, she wrote that immigrants and the indigent were “human weeds,' 'reckless breeders,' 'spawning... human beings who never should have been born."
Her purpose in advancing Abortion, in the magazine Birth Control Review (1921), she was “to create a race of thoroughbreds”
In her book, Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right, Sanger is quoted as saying “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population”
Planned Parenthood has never renounced those opinions as being conflict with their own plans and goals.
What happened to Terri Schiavo in Florida, and is now happening now to Mae Magouirk in Georgia, was set in motion long ago, on a deliberate course which ultimate objective has been hidden from national discussion. It is now time to be quite clear, that one either chooses the presumption of Life as a fundamental right, with no racial, gender, age, physical/mental condition or cultural prejudices allowed in the decision, or one chooses to murder the inconvenient, as the Eugenists and Planned Parenthood have argued for more than a century.
