The new healthcare plan that Obama is promoting will put elderly in a position to end their life rather than take measure to save it. Fred Thompson is calling Americans to “think of their parents.” This healthcare proposal has a frightening resemblance to the T-4 plan of Adolf Hitler. Hitler’s plan put pressure to end the lives of less desirable. After the Nazi regime fell and the participants were tried for their crimes. “Then the Nazi doctors, and others, were tried for crimes against humanity and genocide at the Nuremberg Tribunal after World War II, many claimed that they only had the noblest intentions, others that they were only following orders.” We now have a similar plan that is being debated in the white house, and we need to make our voices heard. As Catholics we do not want to participate in the taking of countless lives. We cannot sit by aimlessly and watch it happen and when the practice is initiated claim we are only “following orders” as the Nazis. We are culpable for the genocide this health plan will create. Pray for our country, that we can prevent this planning from going into effect.
