Killing the eggs that hatch the golden goose

When I first posted this item about Planned Parenthood, I was guessing about motives. Turns out, I was pretty close: CNS reports that PPs profits are suffering in Bush country, so they are closing less profitable clinics. PP has a problem, though. The longer they provide abortions to those who agree with their agenda, the fewer women will grow up to have abortions, which are a key to continued profitable operations. The obvious metaphor is evolution: they are a weaker species in politics since they are killing themselves off. However, this does not go far enough, as the horror of innocent life snuffed for profit deserves a stronger simile: it is as if the Nazis had convinced Jews to happily pay for the construction of concentration camps and the costs of their internment.
