QUOTES DU JOUR
"Nazi ideals demand that the practice of abortion... shall be exterminated with a strong hand. Women inflamed by Marxist propaganda claim the right to bear children ONLY WHEN THEY DESIRE. First furs, radio, new furniture, then perhaps one child...
"The use of contraceptives (by Aryan women) means a violation of nature, a degradation of womanhood, motherhood, and love."
-- Adolph Hitler, dictator of Germany, who instituted the "Honor Cross of the German Mother."
In Italy, dictator Mussolini proclaimed Christmas Day, 1933 as "Day of the Mother and Child," and mothers who had borne 14 to 19 children were given the opportunity to meet the dictator and be given a medal and a copy of Pope Pius XI's encyclical which condemned contraceptives, abortion, sex in marriage that didn't have procreation as its aim, and the employment of married women.
