Pro-Life Billboard Campaign in Poland Links Abortion to Nazi Occupationn

By Thaddeus M. Baklinski

POZNAN, February 17, 2010 ( - A new billboard campaign by the Polish branch of the U.S.-based Center for Bio-Ethical Reform (CBR) links the introduction of abortion in Poland to the Nazi occupation of the country during the Second World War.

The English translation of the sign says: “Abortion for Polish women introduced by Hitler on March 9, 1943.”

A 1942 Nazi policy statement on "racial hygiene" said, "In view of the large families of the Slav native population, it could only suit us if girls and women there had as many abortions as possible. We are not interested in seeing the non-German population multiply.

Meanwhile, in Rome, we find this fascinating statement by former Nazi Pope Benedict:
ROME, February 17, 2010 ( – Pope Benedict XVI told a group of visiting Romanian bishops on Friday to resist the “scourges” of abortion and artificial birth control.

The pontiff said the Church should set up “parish consultancy services” for young people to help them combat the “scourges of abortion, corruption, alcoholism and drugs, as well as birth control by methods contrary to the dignity of the human person

Well, I guess he'd know.
