Last night, when I heard Bill O’Reilly say “Nazi stuff,” like in the “Third Reich,” I at first thought that he referring to the murder of deformed children at Hartheim Castle. I had to watch the show, for the second time, before I realized that he was comparing today’s abortions in America to what happened in the “Third Reich,” which was Hitler’s Germany.
This quote is from a news article about Bill O’Reilly’s show:
After sounding off on the Planned Parenthood scandal in his Talking Points Memo, Bill O’Reilly spoke to Republican presidential contender Chris Christie.
O’Reilly pointed out that some of the body parts that Planned Parenthood is harvesting come from 18-week-old fetuses.
He noted that to get those body parts, they have to kill the fetus in a certain way.
“Now many people feel this is Nazi stuff. This is what they did in the Third Reich with these experiments,” O’Reilly said.
The Nazis in the Third Reich did not perform abortions. No, it was the exact opposite. The Nazis encouraged women to have as many children as possible.
A German woman, who had at least 3 children, during the Third Reich, was given a medal.
This quote is from Wikipedia, about the medals that were given to German women for having lots of children:
The Cross of Honour of the German Mother (German: Ehrenkreuz der Deutschen Mutter), referred to colloquially as the Mutterehrenkreuz (Mother’s Cross of Honour) or simply Mutterkreuz (Mother’s Cross), was a state decoration and civil order of merit conferred by the government of the German Reich to honour a Reichsdeutsche German mother for exceptional merit to the German nation. Eligibility later extended to include Volksdeutsche (ethnic German) mothers from, for example, Austria and Sudetenland, that had earlier been incorporated into the German Reich.
The decoration was conferred from 1939 until 1945 in three classes of order, bronze, silver, and gold, to Reichsdeutsche mothers who exhibited probity, exemplary motherhood, and who conceived and raised at least four or more children in the role of a parent. A similar practice, that continues to this present day, was already established in France since 1920, by conferring the Médaille de la Famille française (Medal of the French Family), a tribute to the French mother who raised several children in an appropriate way.
Not only did the Nazi not encourage abortions, they set up Lebensborn homes where single girls could go to have a baby, fathered by a German soldier. You can read about this at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lebensborn
This quote, from Wikipedia, is about Lebsenborn:
Lebensborn e.V. (literally: “Fount of Life”) was an SS-initiated, state-supported, registered association in Nazi Germany with the goal of raising the birth rate of “Aryan” children via extramarital relations of persons classified as “racially pure and healthy” based on Nazi racial hygiene and health ideology. Lebensborn encouraged anonymous births by unmarried women, and mediated adoption of these children by likewise “racially pure and healthy” parents, particularly SS members and their families.
