The New Abortion Argument: Untermenschen

Untermensch (German for under man, sub-man, sub-human; plural: Untermenschen) is a term that became infamous when the Nazi racial ideology used it to describe "inferior people", especially "the masses from the East," that is Jews, Gypsies, and Slavic peoples including Poles, Serbs, Belarusians, Russians and Rusyns.

This morning I was reading an article by Brian Clowes, research director of HLI, about the new abortion strategy. The pro-aborts recognize they've lost the life battle. Everybody knows the baby in the womb is a human life. Ultrasound is so extensive now that the window into the womb clearly shows a fully human baby just waiting to be born. So the Planned Parenthood extremists are coming out of the closet. Faye Wattleton, past president of Planned Parenthood summed it up succinctly when she said, "I think we have deluded ourselves into believing that people don't know that abortion is killing. So any pretense that abortion is not killing is a signal of our ambivalence, a signal that we cannot say yes, it kills a fetus."

The "ambivalence" Wattleton describes is coming to an end. Clowes quotes Ann Furedi, head of chain of abortion mills in England:
We can accept that the embryo is a living thing in the fact that it has a beating heart, that it has its own genetic system within it, it's clearly human in the sense that it's not a gerbil and we can recognize that it is human life, but the point is not when does life begin but when does it begin to matter.
Wow! Clearly Furedi believes babies waiting to be born are untermenschen, "inferior people" whose lives don't matter.  But they aren't the only expendable ones. Already born babies are also untermenschen to abortion advocates. Recently a Planned Parenthood lobbyist testified against a Florida born alive bill that would mandate treatment for babies who survive abortions. After all, the mom doesn't want it, the doc tried to kill it, and being born shouldn't make any difference to accomplishing the objective -- a dead baby! After all, some people are worth more than others. And babies in the womb and even out of the womb are just untermenschen. When do they move up the ladder to be fully human? Well that all depends. If you're a Jew or a Slav or a gypsy in the Third Reich -- NEVER. If you're a "cockroach" (Tutsi) in Rwanda's civil war -- NEVER. And for Planned Parenthood, if you're an "unwanted" baby -- NEVER! Abortion at any time before birth and post birth as well! After all, they're just untermenschen.
