Eugenics, Hitler, Abortion and the Late Tom Lantos

As my wife and I sat here this evening watching a video documentary on the Jewish Holocaust titled “The Last Days,” I took particular interest in one of the survivors who was interviewed in the film. This individuals name was Tom Lantos, who was a member of the House of   Representatives in California, District  12. It is truly a remarkable story indeed, from Auschwitz to American State House. However, this is not what I would like to focus on in this post. Rather, I would like to focus on Lantos’ continued support of Eugenics – the very program that killed 6 million of his own people in the German Concentration Camps.

As the documentary played, I decided to look up Rep. Lantos to see what his voting record was, thinking to myself that someone who had seen the destruction of human life in such a graphic way, could not possibly support abortion; a Eugenics program that systematically targets a   specific group of people. Here is what I found:

What the record shows above is that Lantos, despite his past history, was willing to vote for and support the same system of elimination that  Hitler supported and enforced. However, he and people like him have created an environment within this country that makes Hitler look like a rank   amature, if one considers the sheer numbers involved. American abortion has systematically murdered about 50 million babies since Roe v. Wade.  However, Hitler only killed 6 million Jews (and I do not state that lightly) in his reign or terror. Did Lantos object to the fact that Hitler had his people gassed – of course. However, he personally did not mind voting to subject the most helpless of victims to a certain death via the same system of elimination that he himself was placed into in the 40’s. The only difference is that the faces  and methods have changed, but not the end result. Murder is murder, whether it is Hitler ordering the death of Jews, or  politicians and judges placing into law a system of murder that targets the unborn.  Sometimes I am left truly amazed at the depravity of man. 

“If men fight and hit a pregnant woman and her child is born prematurely, but there is no serious injury, he will surely be punished in   accordance with what the woman’s husband demands of him, and he will pay what the court decides.23 But if there is serious injury, then you will give a life for a life,24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,25 burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise. (Ex. 21:22-25, NET Bible)

  1. Despicable depravity indeed, practiced by the wicked, at enmity with God, and under the sway of the evil one.
    Only by the grace of God almighty can they be reconciled to Him, and given new life through Jesus Christ.
    And so we should pray, to intercede for the defenseless victims of the holocaust known as abortion.
