Commies are from the same philosophy of Nazism. Let's just get rid of those who they feel unworthy. The state is not God and no man should make a decision of whose life is deemed worthy! Cuba has one of the highest abortion rates in the world and North Korea aborts those who are racially impure, yet the media is silent!
A growing body of testimony is vindicating President Bush's charge that North Korea is a member of the "axis of evil" – refugees are reporting the killing of disabled infants and forced abortions of babies believed fathered by Chinese men in an obsessive program based on mystical notions of Korean racial superiority.
At a forum in Seoul, South Korea, several refugees from the north described a policy of state eugenics carried out with extreme repression.
"There are no people with physical defects in North Korea," said Ri Kwang-chol, a North Korean doctor who escaped last year. Babies with defects are killed by medical staff and quickly buried, he told the London Times.
Among the "physical defects" that will get a baby killed – even one in the womb – is being half-Chinese.
Han Myong-suk, a 30-year-old woman who escaped twice and who was helped to find sanctuary in a third country by Helping Hands Korea, an American Christian group, had her baby forcibly aborted following her return to North Korea after being sold by traffickers to a Chinese farmer. Five months pregnant when the Beijing government deported her, Han was interned in a detention camp for women.
"I defied the order to abort the fetus the prison authorities contemptuously called a 'Chinese Chink' and was badly beaten and kicked in my belly by a guard," Han said. She still remembers the guard's name.
After a week of resistance, Han said she was taken to the prison clinic and "in a most blunt manner they extracted the dead child from my body."
Other witnesses described pregnant women being returned from China and taken to a clinic where labor was induced and the infant suffocated or left to die in a box with other infants in front of their mothers.
"Guards would say the mothers had to see and hear their babies die because they were Chinese," a report by the U.S. Committee for Human Rights in North Korea said, noting that the murdered infants were known as "children of betrayers."
These most recent reports confirm findings of the Korean Bar Association which reports that 58 percent of defectors its lawyers have interviewed claim knowledge of forced abortions in Kim's prisons.
Experts caution against seeing the North Korean regime's cruelty as merely a relict of its proclaimed Marxist ideology while missing its cultish dimensions.
"It's vital to recognize that 'juche' – the dogma of self-reliance – is not a theory but a cult and that Kim is worshipped as the leader of a religion," a veteran western diplomat who negotiated with the North Koreans on 19 visits told the Times. "These Koreans genuinely believe they are a master race and that the peninsula will be united under the rule of the Kim dynasty."
Despite the organizational trappings of a communist state – a Supreme People's Assembly, a presidium, a cabinet and the Korean Workers' party – North Korea is a one-man military dictatorship founded on clan rule, blood ties, mystical ideas of racial superiority and deification of Kim, the diplomat said. This reality explains Kim's deepening estrangement from it's Marxist neighbor, China.
The juxtaposition of Kim's mysticism and North Korea's apparent testing of a nuclear device this week has it's parallel in Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's belief that he has been chosen as the person designated to prepare the way for the Islamic messiah's second coming and Tehran's efforts to acquire nuclear weapons. Before the Mahdi, who supposedly disappeared down a well as a child in A.D. 941, can return, there must be chaos and a world apocalypse.
