Both the Nazi elimination of Jews and Planned Parenthood’s commercial traffic in baby parts proceed from similar principles: for the Nazis, Jews were not human, and could be eliminated in order that they not contaminate the “Master Race”; for Planned Parenthood, a fetus is not a human being (even if it emerges partially from the birth canal), because it has not been “born” . These principles were not stated explicitly, but they were fundamental in all the propaganda from the Nazis and from the advocates of partial-birth abortion. Those involved in these decisions, as the transcripts show (one, two, three), have no qualms about their projects; there is no hint of conscience being over-ridden.
