War Against Eugenics Continues

From the always vigorous weblog Athanasius Contra Mundum comes an article about two British women - one a Baroness, one a pro-abortion feminist and host of a BBC radio program. Both have expressed - frankly - Hitlerian attitudes towards the elderly and sick, and have done so without shame.

Part of the article from which Athanasius quotes points to a horrifying trend in the UK, among other horrifying trends it is enduring.

"Most leading thinkers in the bioethics field endorse euthanasia and assisted suicide and often argue that elderly and ill patients have the obligation to end their lives to relieve pressure on families and the health care system."

All this is is just the Eugenics philosophy raising it's ugly head again. Similar arguments against the ill, elderly, unborn and helpless were uttered by the likes of Margaret Sanger, Marie Stopes and Havelock Ellis long ago. And the plans they advocated the Nazi fulfilled in their terror state, condemning such weak and frail people under the title of "useless eaters".

G. K. Chesterton - co-founder of Distributism - warned against such anti-human schemes in his 1922 book
Eugenics and Other Evils. (Dale Ahlquist of the American Chesterton Society did a brief review of the book here.) In it, he railed against the godless rich and smarmy scientists who made a god of Science and selfishness. His arguments against birth control and euthanasia are still good today. They are timeless and trustworthy.

It is incumbent upon us to stop in it's tracks such trends toward murdering our elderly and sick, just because of a broken-down state-run health care system in the UK. (America's pro-big business HMO-oriented system is no better.) Defend the unborn and elderly by fighting these anti-humans wherever you find yourself at.
