Unwitting Nazi sympathizer at Georgia Southern University

Young women hearing the lies, learning the truth and heeding the call to action.

Young women hearing the lies, learning the truth, and heeding the call to action.

She looked at the photos intently.  A bright and inquisitive young woman, she was one of four children — all now happy, healthy adults.  However, all four had been slated for execution before they were born.  After prenatal tests, the doctors strongly encouraged her parents to abort them due to the risk of miscarriage or birth defects.  Because their parents would not listen, the world is blessed with these four people.

Speaking of prenatal testing…

He said the human genome is so weak, we need to cull inferior genetic stock in order to survive as a species.  Where have we heard that before?  YIKES!!!

He said we should use prenatal testing with extreme prejudice to find people with defects and “delete” them in the womb.  He would have been glad to wipe out his classmate and her siblings (and possibly their mother and father) because of inaccurate tests.  This young man even said that if he had a birth defect, he would chose to be aborted rather than burden the world.

Hitler would have been proud, but the young man insisted his ideas were somehow not the stuff of Nazi fantasies.

Listening in…

Although his mind was made up, I continued to facilitate the conversation because three of his fellow students stood listening, and I wanted them to hear the insanity of his argument.  They appeared uncomfortable with his “purify the master race” ideas, as well they should.

After the young man left, I asked if they had questions.  Looking rather relieved that this guy had gone, they asked the usual hard-case questions, such as life-of-the-mother and rape.  After hearing my answers, they wanted to know more.  Specifically, they wanted to know what could they do!  Two them signed up for the new campus pro-life organization.  A third asked for contact information for the local crisis pregnancy center, so she could volunteer for them.

This is a frequent scenario.  We use our discussion with one student to reach many more who are listening in.
