Abortion: America's Holocaust
by Michael Westfall
All life belongs to God including the unborn. Scripture
describes fetuses in the womb as persons. In the Bible there are many scriptural passages that deal with unborn children.
While the sin of abortion may be no less forgivable than any other sin because through faith in Jesus all sins are forgiven
(John 3:16), Jeremiah 1:5 says that God knows us before he knits us in the womb and Exodus 21:22-25 prescribes the same penalty
for someone who causes the death of a baby in the womb as the penalty for someone who commits murder.
This paper is not intended to portray women as evil baby
Many women have been brainwashed into thinking that abortion
is socially acceptable and that their unborn child is not a living human being.
Studies of women who have aborted clearly show that up
to 75% have feelings of guilt and genuine deep remorse. Many are prone to mask their feelings with alcohol and drugs and suffer
mental and physical problems long after the ordeal. Every child they see reminds them of their lost child. It is a guaranteed
one-way direction of permanent misery and permanent loss.
Children, women and families are truly victimized by
the abortion mills.
Our culture tells women that it is not the right time
to have a child, they are to young, they can’t afford it or it might interfere with their plans. Relative to the human
suffering and loss this is a cultural lie. It is a profound mistake that a woman will never get over her entire life. Abortion
doesn’t solve any problems but rather increases the exploitation, pain and suffering of women. It fails to benefit the
physical, emotional and social well being of women. Women aren’t better off they are worse off. It makes it easier for
husbands and boyfriends to leave their wives and girlfriends. Women who have had abortions have a history of significantly
more health problems, many of which are very serious. These women are many times confused and frightened, and there is little
point in pointing an accusatory finger towards them. These women are the losers. Their child will never live in this
world. It is the people gaining monetarily who work for the abortion office and the clinic itself who benefit.
Not only do women suffer from abortion but men do as
Men suffer from many of the same troubles including grieving,
anger, depression, and sleep problems.
United Auto Workers
In the 2003 national contract, UAW workers were shocked
as union officials asked automakers in secret talks to cover abortions in the workers, healthcare benefit packages. Christian
workers were livid. The UAW was amazed to see their rank & file spring into action circulating petitions diametrically
opposed to abortion.
Christian workers deeply question the UAW’s ultra
liberal Democratic agenda when it comes to family and moral values like abortion and marriage for those who practice homosexuality.
Union leaders who profess faith need to examine their actions relative to their personal faith.
In Montrose, Michigan where I was brought up in the 1950’s,
if my neighbors had heard that any country had murdered 46,000,000 of their unborn defenseless children, like our Supreme
court has allowed America to do since 1973 with legalized abortion, and that the laws were in place to continue the mass murder,
they would have been shocked and horrified. In the 1950’s our kids were valuable parts of “real” families.
Times could be very hard for people back then, but we were not so self indulgent that we would consider aborting our own kids
as a method of birth control or to have life a little easier.
My grandfather was a foreman in Flint at the GM Buick
plant. He was killed in 1927 at the age of 27 just before the great depression.
My grandmother was left with 3 children. The oldest was
only 4 years old.
There were no welfare programs back then and they were
dirt poor, destitute, without a home and at the mercy of relatives. They lived in a relative’s barn and went without
most necessities for a long period of time. My grandmother was a great lady and mother. She would tell me that when they were
lucky enough to get a chicken during the “hard years” they would eat everything but the squawk.
My grandmother had a difficult life during those times
but would have never considered abortion. I am glad of that because you wouldn’t be reading this if she had. Neither
would any of the rest of my family, my grandchildren or the entire future generations of my family to come. You see, abortion
has deep and profound consequences because each abortion eliminates the entire future family lineage going forward of the
aborted life. There is more then one life that is lost. Man just doesn’t understand and does not have the right to interfere
in God’s plan of life and death.
Abortion is a dark and gruesome practice. It isn’t
about the health of the woman as much as it is about insuring that the unborn child will die. The abortionist’s duty
is to terminate the pregnancy, and they are not paid to have a live birth.
There are several methods used for induced abortion and
the method is generally determined by the age of the fetus. Younger fetuses may be aborted with suction machines, which puree
the soft baby into a liquid before vacuuming out. Later partial birth abortion is used where the baby is partially removed
from the mother’s body and then the abortionist uses suction to remove the spinal fluid and the brain of the child.
Using powerful saline chemical solutions is another abortion technique to terminate the life of the unborn.
Abortion rips the unborn child apart and many times leaves
behind distinguishable body parts, which must be removed after induced death and dissection.The aborted babies little bodies
must be put back together after their destruction and removal to make sure nothing is left in the mother to cause infection.
How can any civilized thinking person look into the face
of an aborted baby, see the tiny hands and feet, put back together the bodies of these unborn children that have just been
ripped apart and not have any feeling for the child or mother? How can they have no remorse for being a part of the
process? How can they not say a prayer for this little soul and their would be mother before they discard the little bodies?
How many badly burned little kicking babies have felt
the terrible pain from the saline solution or from being torn, pureed and dismembered during their demise in their mothers,
where they should have been safe, before they were flushed down the abortion mills’ industrial strength garbage disposals
or cremated in their incinerators?
Our nation would be up in arms if any group of Americans
were torn limb from limb, burned beyond recognition with painful saline solutions and then flushed down the toilets like a
piece of waste. It would be unacceptable, as it should be, if any Americans were ground up in the industrial strength garbage
disposals or had a scissors put to the back of their heads and their brains removed. To even suggest it sounds barbaric, yet
that is precisely what is a legal right for abortionists to do to our unborn thanks to our Supreme Court. This is insane!
Our liberal politicians not only look the other way, but they actively support it.
How can this be called medical ethics? It is more like
medical ethics from the twilight zone …not America.
Abortionists know that they are destroying life. It is
right in front of their eyes and there is absolutely no doubt about it. The pre-born individuals are dismembered by their
tools, they can see and feel it. For a person who stands to gain monetarily from an abortion to suggest to the mother that
the child in her isn’t a human being is nauseating.
These pre-born children already have the DNA for their
own blood, eye color, hair color, body shape and all the other human characteristics that the rest of us had when “we
were also pre-born children”.What abortionists don’t mention is that if the mother were to look into the face
of her pre-born child she would see a human face, and if she looked down she would see a beating heart just like the abortionists
While abortion destroys the children and traumatizes
the mother, it financially rewards the abortion clinic and it’s staff handsomely.
How can a person that performs such atrocities pretend
to be human, go home at night, say grace at the dinner table, pat their own children on the heads and get a good nights sleep
without hearing the silent screams of the dead pre-born children whose opportunity for life they have ended?
There have been many cases where doctors and clinical
personal that perform abortions just couldn’t take it anymore and quit.
See… “Catholic Culture” at http://www.catholicculture.org/docs/doc_view.cfm?recnum=
3009 It has an excellent site dealing with ex-abortionists
and what they saw and why they quit.
Another pictorial site “Prolife America”
has graphic pictures of unborn babies.
“Priests For Life” in Staten Island, NY. has a page with dozens of abortion picture which shows what abortion
looks like. http://www.priestsforlife.org/resources/photosassorted/index
Government / Law
The abortion debate has taken place in Congress and
in state legislatures. In 1973 the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton cases led to the mass legalization of abortion for any reason
before the 24th week of pregnancy. This was an act of aggression by the Supreme Court against the American family
and gutted the abortion laws in all 50 states.
Another barbaric issue began twelve years ago in 1993
when liberal President Clinton signed the act that allows government funded research using the tissue from aborted children.
Another relative issue since the legalization of abortion in America is that there have been documented cases where women
donated their aborted fetuses to medical research only to find enterprising barbarians selling the harvested brains and other
In 1996 congress enacted a bill banning partial birth
abortion but liberal President Clinton vetoed the law.
Our nations major Right to Life organization “The
National Right to Life Committee, (NLRC)… http://www.nrlc.org/ which I am a member of, led the coalition that resulted
in enactment of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act. Conservative President George W. Bush stated that “partial birth
abortion is violence directed against those who are inches from birth” as he signed the bill on November 5,2003.
Almost instantly the ACLU and liberal politicians
began challenging the law across the nation.
Haven’t we figured out by now that the liberals
are far too liberal and the law legalizing abortion is not a good law for “ People of Liberty”?
How can our courts pass laws to protect our families
on one hand and then on the other hand disconnect, flagrantly throw morality out the window and allow an abortion industry
to destroy our nations unborn children in the most hideous ways? Abortion truly is justice gone awry.
The supreme court may make it constitutionally legal
in America to make a business of this hideous ending of life, but there is a higher court that all of us will answer to one
day including the abortionists and the Supreme Court justices themselves. They should not be surprised to see all of the little
soles there whose lives were snuffed out by their decisions.
The man holding court there in judgment will be of
a higher moral calling, and I wouldn’t want to be one of these people who has to answer to him on these charges. I would
much rather be on my side of the issue.
How can the legalized murder of these unborn infants,
who according to America's Supreme Court have no worth or value, be any different in the eyes of God then the legalized murder
that occurred in Hitler’s death camps? There is a glaring comparison between Hitler's Holocaust versus
the entire arena of abortion and embryonic stem-cell research. To suggest otherwise is to refuse to see reality.
As extreme as it sounds it is amazingly relevant.
In the 1950’s I remember seeing films of General
Eisenhower going into these holocaust death camps and discussing how evil they were.
My father fought Hitler and his atrocities. Dad
was shot in the lung and had part of his elbow blown off during World War II fighting the evil Nazi regime.
Hitler's killing resulted in the death of over 11
million people including over 6 million Jews in the genocide called Holocaust. When you consider the commonalities between
Hitler’s Nazi regime that “targeted and murdered over 6,000,000 mostly Jewish men, women and children” and
compare that to America’s Supreme Court decision in 1973 legalizing abortion across the board in our country which has
“targeted and ended the lives of over 46,000,000 of our own unborn children” who are the future men, women and
children of America, what does that say about “us” post World War II? Evil is still alive.
Numerically our own Supreme Court has legalized through
abortion the loss and carnage of over seven times the number of lives lost compared to the Hitler death camps. Abortions
are marching on in lockstep with no end in site and getting ready for the next 46,000,000. What happened to our culture and
how could we have sunk so far so fast? We are ending the lives of our own unborn children and thus all resulting future families
going forward forever following the unborn child’s lineage. We are playing God, just like Hitler did, and we just
don’t realize how high the stakes are. Does our ability and desire to play God with life and death relative to the unborn
lives of our very own children make our nation’s sins many times greater?
Throughout history Godless tyrants have used abortion
in many ways. In addition to the murder of millions of defenseless men, women and children and the diabolical medical experiments
his doctors performed, the infamous Adolph Hitler used abortion as a way to deal with populations he didn’t like in
countries under Nazi tyranny. Hitler proclaimed that abortion was a brilliant concept for these countries and said he personally
would shoot any “idiot” who tried to stop abortion in Nazi occupied territories.
When I began working on the assembly line at GM’s
Flint Fisher Body plant in 1964, I found myself working with many Jews who had come to America after World War II. They were
some of the finest people I have ever met and, my being a young man, they took me under their wings and we became friends.
Their stories were just unbelievably horrendous. They had lost their entire families to the Hitler death camps and forever
would wear the camp tattoos. I could write so much more based exclusively on the lives and suffering of these special human
beings who had so little value in the eyes of Germany’s politicians.
Much the same as our unborn children have no value
in the eyes of too many of “our liberal politicians” today in 2005.
One of my Jewish friends Saul was in the Auschwitz
Nazi concentration camp. This is the camp from where Hitler’s SS Dr. Josef Mengele operated. Mengele was one of the
head SS camp officials responsible for the murder and cremation at Auschwitz.
“Beppo” and “Angel of Death”
were two of Mengele’s nicknames by camp inmates. He was the monster who personally selected over 400,000 prisoners
for execution in Hitler’s gas chamber in his 21 months at the death camp. Mengele also was the demented and crazed
Dr. that performed the sadistic experiments on prisoners that he handpicked from the unloading platforms of Auschwitz.
Some of the experiments Mengele would do included
injecting little children’s eyes with chemicals to change eye color and sewing the veins of twins together to see
if he could create artificially conjoined twins. He did many gruesome amputations as well and is well known for his heartless
surgeries and experiments on twins. At the end of his terrible and painful experiments he would kill many of his victims by
injecting chloroform directly into their hearts.
After the war many twins and dwarfs came forward with
recollections and testimony on the Mengele atrocities. They talked of how he would starve babies to death to see
how long it would take them to die. These survivors told of mothers killing their own babies in order to save them from Mengele
and his many barbaric torturous experiments.
These experimental atrocities were also done at other
camps. These so-called scientists would operate without anesthesia, they would infect children with fatal diseases
and they would do horrible experiments on womens reproductive organs.
After the war Mengele fled to Buenos Aires where he
became a “true to form” abortionist. There were other SS “death camp” officers who became abortionists
including the infamous Vilis Kruze. Mengeles killing machine was populated with armies of doctors, lawyers and politicians
who found other living beings devoid of worth.
Likewise, America’s Supreme Court in 1973 found
our nations unborn as being devoid of worth.
Right to Life / Churches
There have been confrontations at clinics where abortions
are performed. I personally have attended several Right to Life marches and the only violence that ever occurred was by the
“Pro-Choice” people. They were generally the ones who were vulgar, obscene and in your face. Not those from Pro-Life.
Each time any individual uses violence against abortionists
the abortion rights leaders blame pro-life leaders as the cause. This is ridiculous because the pro-life movement preaches
against violence. The church has unequivocally rejected violence and churches have put out statements that people advocating
hurting abortionists or damaging property have no part in their efforts.
For over a period of 32 years Pro-Life organizations
have fought to stop the slaughter of 46 million pre born Americans.
Early American feminists were totally against abortion.
It is a fraudulent notion that abortion is essential to women in order to attain full equality.
This issue transcends women controlling their own
bodies. It is a situation of life and death for another human being and their entire God given lineage going forward. Once
the 23 chromosomes from the male and 23 chromosomes from the female are merged into 46 chromosomes, the result is a cell with
the DNA and genetic code of a human being. It is a… “LIFE”!
What is so difficult to understand about that?
What must God think of our nation when he views the
atrocities that we are doing to the pre-born children he has created in his image?
In America our Supreme Court has made us into our
own “little gods” who have the authority over life or death of our own unborn.
We don’t have that right. Only God has that
We have deceived ourselves because there is a God,
there is a hell and there is a judgment, and our short lives are but a vapor.
At judgment, spectators may very well include millions
of tiny unborn souls that were treated like garbage, never allowed a birthday and most importantly created in the image of
God and asking the question…WHY?
