Modern day Holocaust: the link between the abortion pill and Zyklon B, the deadly gas used during World War II

The abortion pill, formerly called RU-486, is connected to the manufacturer of the deadly gas Zyklon B, used in the World War II concentration camps.

Zyklon-B was originally used as a pesticide and marketed by the German Corporation for Pest Control, now known as Detia Degesch GmbH. Degesch, in which German chemical company I.G. Farben had a 42.5% interest and on whose board of 11 it had five seats, was the sole producer of the gas. According to the New York Times, “I.G. Farben played so important a role in Hitler’s war machine and in the Holocaust that it came to be called “the devil’s chemist.” It manufactured Zyklon B, the gas-chamber poison, among many other products, and its factories exploited more than 35,000 slave labourers, many from Auschwitz. It even built a concentration camp of its own to improve efficiency.”

In humans, when inhaled or absorbed through the skin, the odourless hydrogen cyanide blocks cellular respiration and results in agonizing death by suffocation within a short time. During World War I, attempts were made by the French army to utilise the gas at the front, as a chemical agent of mass destruction, but the acid gas evaporated from grenades too rapidly to have any fatal effect. However, during World War II, sales of Zyklon B rose sharply and became a lucrative business. In the German concentration camps at Mauthausen, Neuengamme, Stutthof, and Ravensbrück and in the extermination camps at Auschwitz-Birkenau and Majdanek, far more than one million people, of whom the overwhelming majority in the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp were Jews, were killed by the Nazis in gas chambers with Zyklon B.

Author Robert J. Lifton, in his book ‘The Nazi Doctors Medical Killing and the Psychology of Genocide’, writes, “The use of poison gas… Zyklon-B was the technological achievement permitting ‘humane killing.'” Pharmaceuticals manufactured, and supplied, by I.G. Farben to the SS were later discovered to have been used in horrific Nazi experiments.

According to the New York Times, research for RU-486 began under the supervision of French researcher Etienne-Emile Baulieu in conjunction with Roussel Uclaf S.A., the French pharmaceutical company for which he was a consultant. The newspaper wrote, “The idea was to find a substance that would prevent the uterus from receiving progesterone and thus prevent it from holding onto the fertilized egg.” In 1980, Roussel-Uclaf had developed RU486.  According to a report by the New York Times, Roussel-Uclaf’s parent company Hoechst A.G. of Germany “was one of three corporations that emerged from the breakup of I.G. Farben, the German chemical company that manufactured the cyanide gas, Zyklon B, for Nazi death camps….”

Roussel-Uclaf began selling Mifegyne (mifepristone) to hospitals in France in 1990. Mifegyne was subsequently approved in Britain in 1991 and in Sweden in 1992.

The documentary film Maafa21 explains further:

‘Interestingly, I.G. Farben was a financial partner with John D. Rockefeller and Standard Oil of New Jersey in a company called Standard I.G. Farben…. After the war, I.G. Farben would change its name and become known as Hoechst AG. Today, Hoechst is a gigantic multi-national corporation with subsidiaries all over the world including the United States. Ironically, one of Hoechst’s subsidiaries, Roussel Uclaf, is the French company that developed RU486.  In other words, the same company that produced the gas used in the Nazi death camps also produced the abortion pill that is now being used in abortion clinics.’

RU-486 would eventually be brought into the United States in 1994 by the Population Council, a non-profit founded by John D. Rockefeller III back in 1952. According to author Rebecca Messall, “Rockefeller money funded eugenic scientists decades before Hitler put eugenic theories into practice.” With the encouragement of the Clinton administration, Rouseel-Uclaf had donated all rights of the abortion pill over to the Population Council, which subsequently licensed mifepristone to Danco Laboratories, a new single-product company immune to anti-abortion protests.                                           

In 1997, after buying the remaining 43.5% of Roussel-Uclaf stock, Hoechst AG ($30 billion annual revenue) announced the end of its manufacture and sale of the abortion pill ($3.44 million annual revenue) and the transfer of all rights for medical uses of mifepristone outside of the U.S. to Exelgyn S.A., a new single-product company immune to anti-abortion boycotts, whose CEO was former Roussel-Uclaf CEO Édouard Sakiz. In 1999, Exelgyn won approval of Mifegyne in 11 additional countries, and in 28 more countries over the following decade.

Aktion T4 is a postwar name for mass murder by involuntary euthanasia in Nazi Germany. In July 1933, the "Law for the Prevention of Hereditarily Diseased Offspring" prescribed compulsory sterilisation for people with conditions thought to be hereditary, such as schizophrenia, epilepsyHuntington's chorea and "imbecility".  It is estimated that 360,000 people were sterilised under this law between 1933 and 1939.

In 1934, a eugenics society was set up in Britain. One of its aims was to legalise abortion. Marie Stopes, who the second biggest abortion provider in Britain is named after, was a eugenics activist who was friends with Hitler. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood - the biggest abortion provider in America - wanted to wipe out the "Negro population." 75% of American abortion clinics are in minority areas.

From August 1939, the Interior Ministry registered children with disabilities, requiring doctors and midwives to report all cases of newborns with severe disabilities. Those to be killed were identified as "all children under three years of age in whom any of the following 'serious hereditary diseases' were 'suspected'”, including Down’s syndrome. Nowadays in Britain, 90% of babies, prenatally diagnosed with Down's syndrome, are killed through abortion. 100% in Iceland. 98% in Denmark and the list goes on. 

A poster (from around 1938) reads: "60,000 Reichsmark is what this person suffering from a hereditary defect costs the People's community during his lifetime. Fellow citizen, that is your money too.” During a House of Commons debate on abortion in 1985, an MP asserted that to abort a “handicapped” preborn baby could save the country £1 million over the course of a lifetime.

The same evil resources and mentality of eugenics underpins that of the lucrative abortion industry. Abortion is the modern day Holocaust.
