An excellent read. Just a small excerpt here.

Abortionism and the Banality of Evil

Hannah Arendt, who made a study of totalitarianism after the Second World War, which was defined by her after the Eichmann Trial in 1963, described what she saw in this totalitarianism as “The Banality of Evil.” This Nazi evil – like all other totalitarian evil, which she examined – was the dull, bland ordinariness found in the bureaucratic nature of Hell.

The history of that awful crime includes cramming people into cattle cars, driving pitiful and lost souls into gas chambers, and then extracting from the dead bodies anything useful. Gold was pulled from dental fillings. Shaved hair was used to make socks. Bodies were rendered for fat, which was used to make soap.

As we watch Planned Parenthood leaders casually explain over wine and salad the market price for babies’ livers and lungs and hearts, that phrase that Arendt coined seems stunningly apt. How casually these administrators of infanticide discuss the economic utility of the bodies of those humans they kill! How blithely they banter about the best techniques of homicide against the most vulnerable of human lives!

This has been a recurring theme in the abortion industry. Dr. Bernard Nathanson, co-founder of NARAL and once one of the leading abortionists in America, describes the true moral nature of Abortionism in his 1996 book, The Hand of God. The doctor actually aborted one of his own unborn children, relating in chilling frankness: “I swear to you, I had no feelings aside from the sense of accomplishment, the pride of expertise.”
