Skip to comments.Killing like mindless soldiers: the mentality of masses of the abortion industry

June 4, 2012 (Bound4Life.com) - A question I often pose to students as we study literature that takes place during the Holocaust is whether or not every Nazi soldier was a killer at heart or just following the protocol of the organization. Its so easy for us to make blanket statements that they are all evil, but the fact is, many were passive people who succumbed to groupthink and didnt actually consider their evil actions. They were absolutely guilty of them, but they hid behind the orders given them, the perceived good for the nation and the race.
Its hard for many to imagine that mentality being alive and well in America, but Id assert you can find it in most Planned Parenthood offices, as revealed as recently as this week in the gendercide controversies. What we have heard is various spokespeople saying Planned Parenthood doesnt want to judge women by telling them what babies to abort. This hands-off policy which runs through the organization is a disturbing practice of indiscriminate killing that doesnt even engage the thinking process, much like a soldier in the Holocaust.
What we saw last week in the sex-selective abortion undercover videos and later comments is that Planned Parenthood is so afraid of regulating abortion that instead they would let a 5-month old baby be killed simply because shes a girl. Nowhere did we hear, You know, we can connect you with someone who would adopt your baby so she could have a good home and you could try again if youre determined. Instead, we heard the echoes of the Holocaust soldiers who in a mass didnt think but simply did what the policy was. In the 1940s being a Jew (or a myriad of other things) meant death. Today its whatever inconveniences us. Abortion workers often dont realize what death and destruction has sucked them into the aspiration machine they use to suck out babies.
That may sound harsh, but its really not that unique. Years after World War II Stanley Milgram, a Yale University researcher, did an experiment on obedience to authority which showed that the average person would flip a switch to shock a person, two-thirds of them to the point of great physical harm or death, simply because an authority figure told him to. No threats. No loss. They simply said the experiments required them to continue. You know, like Planned Parenthood says a right to an abortion should be available to everyone, so the experiment requires that Planned Parenthood continue to kill without judgment.
Again, this isnt unique. John D. Goldhammer discusses in his book Under the Influence: The Destructive Effects of Group Dynamics* the ramifications conformity of a group conscience (25). This group conscience seems to be the trigger for people to abandon responsibility for their actions. It is simply the strength in numbers idea carried out to a destructive end. People do not question the leadership but, rather, react to its dictates. The causes of conformity are different, but group influence is one underlying major force that compels people toward conformity.
He adds that the consequences of group influences that at first seem to be positive but can later be proved negative, show that groups do not have a personal conscience. What they have is a collective center of gravity where some ideal or higher purpose becomes the driving force for its collective mission (25).
Study Planned Parenthoods mission in light of Goldhammers comments. I cant read these studies and not see the abortion industry. Surely every single worker in a Planned Parenthood office doesnt put on pom poms and cheer when abortions are done. Instead they are collectively anesthetized to terminate a fetus because that ought to be a right.
I can tell you that here at Planned Parenthood we believe that its not up to us to decide what is a good or a bad reason for somebody to decide to terminate a pregnancy, a Planned Parenthood worker says in one of the videos.
But that means they dont regulate their own industry. Killing without discrimination is murder of the lowest sort; its what Hitler instituted. It makes everyone who participates in the abortion industry and never questions it at the same level as those masses who participated in the extermination of the Jews.
Extermination. Termination. Both destroy a nation.
It seems we have not yet learned from history; thus, we are doomed to repeat it. Six million Jews has become 55 million babies.
And a bit of thinking and questioning could be a game changer. And a life saver.

German children were taught early to not question. If we don’t watch how our children are taught in our schools, we’ll have the same problem someday. Take back control of our schools and teach the children American values, not communist values.
I find that in Churches people are often taught that obeying those in athority completely and without question is what The Bible teaches. They often teach this as though it is the highest commandment and supercedes all others. The Bible clearly does not teach us to obey authority when authority is pressing for that which is against God's Word. The Bible does teach us to obey authority, but this is meant as a general principle and does not mean that it should be obeyed when it is telling you to commit evil or forbidding you to obey God.
Acts 5:27 And when they had brought them, they set [them] before the council: and the high priest asked them,
Acts 5:28 Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us.
Acts 5:29 Then Peter and the [other] apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
We are to obey human authorities unless they command things contrary to the Word of God. Our obedience to ultimate authority sometimes requires disobedience to proximate authority, i.e., those who have immediate rule over us.
Of course, that can easily turn into “I am my own authority, I will do what I want.” Submission to ultimate authority has to be sincere and heartfelt, not to mention the most important point of being submission to **TRUE** authority.
Conforming to a higher authority does not mean obeying all authority unless it is deemed ungodly. It means obeying God’s authority, period. If earthly authority is in line with God’s authority then it too should be obeyed. Obedience to human laws must never be a priority for a Godly person.
