Bishop Clemens Graf von Galen Complains About Sterilization Law

Clemens August Graf von Galen, Catholic Bishop of Münster in Westphalia, complains in a pastoral letter about the "Law for the Prevention of Hereditarily Diseased Offspring," which calls for the sterilization of those deemed unfit to have children.

Galen has never written such a letter complaining about all of the laws which have served to oppress the Jews or even the laws which have taken apart civil liberties generally in Germany.

Galen, like other Catholic leaders, also doesn't seem to recognize that all of these laws are tied together by a single political philosophy which they have eagerly been supporting for many months.
