Skip to comments.Alabama politicians compare abortions to the Holocaust in proposed legislation

In legislation proposed earlier this month, Alabama state lawmakers compared abortions in the U.S. to the Holocaust and other modern genocides, prompting Jewish activists and abortion rights groups to rebuke the legislation as "deeply offensive."
Senator Ben Albritton and Representative Terri Collins, both Republicans, filed matching bills in Alabama's state legislature that would ban abortion, making no exceptions for rape or incest. The legislation, dubbed the "Human Life Protection Act," would reclassify abortion as a felony offense, punishable by a minimum of ten years in prison for the physician.
Within the text of each bill, the authors compare abortions to lives lost during the Holocaust, in Joseph Stalin's gulags, during China's "Great Leap Forward," under the Khmer Rouge and during the Rwandan genocide.

Probably not the best analogy since the holocaust was targeted hate against a specific religious people, but from the viewpoint of exterminating life, it sort of fits.
Average per year might be roughly the same, but the Holocaust didn't last as long as abortion (46+ years with only a hopeful end in sight).
The history of abortion in the West is far worse then the Holocaust killings wise
Mel Brooks was right
The abortion industry murders people behind closed doors, while everyone knows it but does nothing about it because those concentration camps housed behind the closed doors of unassumed, normal buildings are guarded by heavily armed military forces (i.e.police) who will kill you if you interfere to much with the murdering of babies.
I think the analogy is apt.
But since no one is compelling them this is basically the libertarian version.
Neither Russell Kirk nor Solzhenitsyn would be surprised at this outcome.
Good work Alabama!
