L’Osservatore: Abortion, euthanasia supporters use Nazi arguments

An article published in the semi-official Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, has caused angry reactions after it argued that proponents of euthanasia and abortion use the same arguments as the Nazi used to justify their criminal eugenics program. The article that appeared on the front page of the May 5 issue of L’Osservatoe Romano, written by Lucetta Scaraffia, an Italian historian who contributes frequently to the Vatican paper, repeated an argument that religious opponents of euthanasia and abortion have used very often in the past: that advocates of euthanasia and abortion base their views as did the Nazis on the Darwinian concept of survival of the fittest. The Huffington Post reports that the article was written in response to a recent Italian translation of a 1920 book written by two German scholars, Karl Binding and Alfred Hoche, entitled “Allowing the Destruction of Life Unworthy of Living.”
