Bioethics Re: German Medical Society Apologizes for Nazi-Era Atrocities by Doctors

The way I see things is, that the Holocaust really never ended, for people born with birth-defects. It only slowed down, and from the 1960’s onward, it began to pick-up speed until the 1980’s. Since then, Holland and Belgium were able to brag how well it was going. When Holland legalized euthanasia on April 1,2002, that was a declaration of war against us.

Finally, after withholding most of the presentations from Quebec’s final-report, because most Quebec health-care specialists reject legalized-killing, Quebec and B.C. courts have legalized their killing-machine.

Even now in the U.S. and Canada, we don’t know whether or not unsolicited targets are being used as guinea-pigs or not, before they are murdered. When did the mainstream-media ever report news, related to what Area-51 in Nevada has been doing since WWII?–And also, Plum-Island, off the coast of Manhattan? Oh, nobody has heard of those places???

So my point is, that now B.C. and Quebec demonstrated how easy it is to exploit laws and make policies they want, if citizens are going to allow it, they deserve whatever happens to them. Alot of them have.

We read descriptions of these experiments in my law school seminar on
Human Experimentation & Legal Theory at U of Michigan. Very horrible
things done. And in most cases, there was no reliable scientific data
produced by these atrocities.

But the false veneer of science certainly helped the experimenters and
their assistants reduce their feelings of anxiety and guilt while
working in the death camps.

And while political leaders were indeed giving orders for prisoners to
be killed, it was doctors who stepped up and said "since these people
are going to be killed anyway, why don’t we do some torturous
experiments on them first" and devised and planned the specific
projects. They were also rationalized as useful for the Wehrmacht – our
soldiers are freezing to death in the Soviet Union, so why don’t we
collect data about the stages of freezing to death by forcing prisoners
to be our lab rats?

About Ironsides

I was born in 1951 with Arthrogryposis, developed scoliosis at ten years old, but travelled alot and worked in several countries with a religious cult. All my adult life I have had to live with others, and after three respiratory-failures I had to move into a long-term care institution.
