The 1961 movie classic, “Judgment at Nuremberg,” tells a true story about judges on trial for World War ll crimes in Germany. The prosecution argues the judges had a responsibility and duty to prevent innocent lives from being unjustly sent to their deaths. The defendants stated they loved their country and were required to enforce the Nuremberg laws of 1935. The judges believed they were good Germans. My country right or wrong.
Laws reclassifying what a German citizen was were the beginning of the discrimination of Jews. After the war began, Jews were looked upon as subhuman and as a burden to the country. This made way for innocent lives to be sent to the gas chambers.
A most disturbing part of the movie is the actual film footage of dead bodies being bulldozed into open graves at a concentration camp. After seeing this, an uneasy judge asks a German prisoner who was a guard at a concentration camp how so many deaths could have occurred. The guard tells him that, “Killing so many was never a problem, but getting rid of the bodies was.”
In America today, an unborn child has no rights. If they are a burden, then they are reclassified as subhuman. Abortion would not be so successful if we saw videos of the unborn dead. But unlike at Nuremberg, there will be no trials because we are all guilty to some degree. Also, there should be no claimed victory in this war because women have fought so hard for rights that are needed for a better America.
America is strong only if its people are strong. Your help is needed in this matter to defend life. Call your legislator now. We can’t continue my country right or wrong.
