Genocide has become a tool of modern governments to achieve political control and eliminate unwanted populations. The most horrific recent examples include:
China, under Mao’s rule, killed at least 49 million of its citizens.
Under Stalin, the Soviet Union killed 20 million.
Adolf Hitler killed approximately 6 million in concentration camps and 12 million in the war.
In the Congo, King Leopold killed approximately 8 million.
The Khmer Rouge killed an estimated 2.4 million.
The Armenian genocide killed as many as 1.5 million.
All of these are exceeded by the United States’ government sponsored killing of unborn children. Abortion was decreed a Constitutional right in the opinion written by Harry Blackmun in 1973. In the decades following his decree, an estimated 55 million have been murdered. Most of these have been paid for by taxpayer money allocated for that purpose. The United States has murdered more than Mao, Stalin, Hitler, King Leopold, the Khmer Rouge and the Ottoman Empire. At the present rate, in a few more decades, the United States will have killed more than all of them combined. These other genocidal governments targeted political opponents and consolidated their power to govern by killing. The United States has killed primarily in support of sexual gratification, hedonism and as an accepted form of birth control. Every one involved will be held to account for killing.
“Inasmuch as ye do it unto the least of these, ye do it unto me.” D&C 48:38.
“Thou shalt not …kill, nor do anything like unto it.” D&C 59:6.
“why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” Luke 6:46.
