Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

Location: Pennsylvania, United States

I was born into the Catholic faith. At 14, I was "born again" and found Jesus personally but lost His Church. After thirty years as an evangelical protestant, I have come full circle to find that He has been there all the time, in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I wish others to find the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith as I have found.

Eugenics in Our Brave New World

The desire to rid the human race of "inferior" people has a long and tragic history. Adolph Hitler derived his ideas from American eugenics proponent, Margaret Sanger (founder of Planned Parenthood). The ability for parents to select the intelligence and race of their artificially conceived baby is thinly veiled eugenics rearing it's ugly head once again.

The three quotes below were from Adolph Hitler, Margaret Sanger and owner of a "Designer Embryo Retailer." You try to match the quote with the author.

"The undeniably feeble-minded should, indeed, not only be discouraged but prevented from propagating their kind."

“ I see no horror in the creation of humans of superior intelligence. In fact, due to the intrusion of mankind, the intelligence level has dropped dramatically over the last 100 years. From an average I.Q. of 100 to an average in the 80's. Now that to me is a scary thought. Can you not see the horror in not intervening?”

"The demand that defective people be prevented from propagating equally defective offspring is a demand of clearest reason and, if systematically executed, represents the most humane act of mankind. It will spare millions of unfortunates undeserved sufferings, and consequently will lead to a rising improvement of health as a whole."

But the voice of reason says: "Certain attempts to influence chromosomic or genetic inheritance are not therapeutic but are aimed at producing human beings selected according to sex or other predetermined qualities. Such manipulations are contrary to the personal dignity of the human being and his integrity and identity which are unique and unrepeatable." Catechism of the Catholic Church

Wow. You should add one more quote and one more option.. "Whatever you do unto the least of these you have done unto me"..

Thanks for bringing Margaret Sanger's true legacy to the forefront. Every secular source that talks about her tries its hardest to brush over the sheer evil of her beliefs. Now Im not saying this to judge or condemn her, let God be her judge. But people need to realize that Planned parenthood never was and never will be an organization with any other motive than evil.

The following quote shocked me... I cannot fathom how any sane person could read this and think she wasn't insane herself:

"The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it." (Margaret Sanger, Women and the New Race)

What's even more amazing is how she is viewed as a hero despite these horrendous statements. The evils of the third Reich partly were due to her writings and philosophy. Very scary that this same spirit of darkness lives on in america under the guise of "Designer Embryo Retailers"
