    What are we becoming?

    Former Governor of Connecticut Ella Grasso once remarked, “Let us not kill the children of the poor and then tell them we have helped them.” In science, experts in fetology, genetics and biology all confirm that human life begins at conception. And that a fetus is a member of the human species at every stage of development. We ourselves were once developing in many ways in our mother’s womb. Then as a newborn baby, our infancy as babies, then as children, teenagers and as adults. In pregnancy, there is a separate human being in the mother’s womb.

    On the gates of the Dachau concentration camp in Germany, are the words, “Never again!” It meant the systematic destruction of human beings that were deemed not valuable enough to society and not worthy to live. The Nazi nightmare was an outgrowth of a new standard of thinking and reasoning about what is normal, right and moral. It was the philosophy called Hegelianism by German philosopher Hegel. The wanted end result justifies the means to get it. The desirable end justifies the evil means. If it provides a solution, it is morally justifiable. It desensitizes being humane, merciful, compassionate and loving. Is this what we’re becoming?
