I am (re)reading a book on the horrors of the abortion industry (Lime 5
) for an upcoming post. In it I came across an interesting fact that I have to share.
The fact, the same company that produced Zyklon B that was used by the Nazis to kill the Jews in thier concentration camps is the same company that now produced RU-486
I.G. Farbenindustrie AG owned the patent on Zyklon B. After WWII it split up into 3 companies, BASF, Bayer & Hoechst AG. In 1994 Hoechst AG bought the French pharmacutical company Roussel Uclaf. They owned the patent on RU-486. (RU for the company, 486 is the date of the patent) After a couple of mergers, Hoechst is now a part of Sanofi-Aventis.
Zyklon B was used by the Nazis to take the place of having to shoot the Jews. Why? Because it made it all the more impersonal & easier to do. They didn't have to watch as the Jews were murdered.
RU-486 is being pushed as a replacement for surgical abortion. For the same reason. With the drug, the doctors don't have to see the babies being dismembered & killed.
It is a lot easier to kill someone when you don't have to face the results of your actions as they happen.
For me, this fact is all the more proof that any comparison between the centerpieces of the "culture of death"; the abortion industry & embryonic stem cell reseach with Nazi Germany is a valid 1.
As you have already guessed, my review of Lime 5
will is going to be favorable. If anyone decides to get the book based on these few comments, please do. I have to warn you, the book has many passages that are not for the faint of heart. Please don't let that stop you.
