Gisella Perl was forced to work as a doctor in Auschwitz concentration camp during the holocaust.
She was ordered to report ever pregnant women do the physician Dr. Josef Mengele, who would then use the women for cruel experiments (e.g. vivisections) before killing them.
She saved hundreds of women by performing abortions on them before their pregnancy was discovered, without having access to basic medical supplies. She became known as the “Angel of Auschwitz”.
After being rescued from Bergen-Belsen concentration camp she tried to commit suicide, but survived, recovered and kept working as a gynecologist, delivering more than 3000 babies.

I want to nail this to the forehead of every anti-abortionist who uses the word “Holocaust” when talking about legal abortions.

Before the American Revolution, European political thought held that sovreignty — ie ultimate power to rule — was believed to always rest with one individual or body. In France, that was the king. In Great Britain, with Parliament. Even after the revolution in America, final sovreignty was…

Nguyen Thi Ly, 11, skips rope in her village south of Da Nang, Vietnam.

Her grandfather served in the North Vietnamese Army during the Vietnam War, and she is a third generation victim of dioxin exposure, the result of Agent Orange and other herbicides sprayed by the U.S. military during the conflict more than 40 years ago.

Like her mother, she suffers from severe facial deformities and chronic bone pain, but is otherwise a normal little girl with hopes and dreams for the future. Skipping rope is her favorite activity. The Vietnam Red Cross estimates that 3 million Vietnamese suffer from illnesses related to dioxin exposure, including at least 150,000 people born with severe birth defects since the end of the war.

The U.S. government is paying to clean up dioxin-contaminated soil at the Da Nang airport, which served as a major U.S. base during the conflict.

But the U.S. government still denies that dioxin is to blame for widespread health problems in Vietnam and has never provided any money specifically to help the country’s Agent Orange victims. May 28, 2012. x

A bit of white history for you this morning.

That Poor, Poor Woman

historical-nonfiction:

According to a Time Magazine article published in 1945, the longest pregnancy on record is 375 days (as opposed to the usual 280 days). Amazingly, the delivered baby was only 6 pounds, 15 ounces.
