I could have named it Part I, but that would be harsh. As you might know, I love the American culture and their people. Some things I can’t get over with. Outside of the US, we mainly see the loudest people. You know, the crazy opinions that make no sense whatsoever. A lot of times, I correct the image, saying that almost everyone I meet is more nuanced than the image would suggest. I tell how you can have perfectly normal conversations about politics, culture, philosophy and many more in a respectful manner. And then there’s these people:
Why would you do that? How do you know this? Something tells me you didn’t do an awful lot of research* on abortions in Nazi Germany, nor is it likely you were there. This probably indicates you want this to be true, rather than it actually being true. Leaving the truth debate for now, what are you going for with this? Where in the Bible does it say ‘Behold, if the tips and tricks provided through this book do not seem sufficient, why not turn to manipulation?’ It may be a personal view, but I feel this is not a christian attitude. At least not an outreaching one.
What overstated opinion gets you ticking?

* I did do some research. There is a Newsweek article that pretty much seems to be the basis for this (Hitler’s children by Joshua Hammer, not available with references). Furthermore, I have found some more scientific articles, stating basically the same thing. An article by John Hunt, Perfecting humankind: a comparison of progressive and nazi views on eugenics, steralization, and abortion puts that same outcome in a historical perspective. An 1988 article by David, Fleischhacker and Hoehn seems to add a different light to the debate, but I couldn’t read it with my university clearance. You are more than welcome to help me search and suggest articles along the same line. However, the statement doesn’t seem as untrue as I thought it was.
