We are quite accustomed to hearing anti-abortion activists equate legal abortion in America with the Holocaust of the Jews in Nazi Germany, but Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver took that analogy to a rather bizarre extreme on yesterday’s “Faith and Freedom” radio program when he declared that fetuses today are being dehumanized until they are considered to be “the dregs of the earth” just as the Jews were by the Nazis:
This is no different than what we did to humans in the Nazi holocaust. We dehumanized them, we stigmatized them, we called them names and prohibited them from working and so forth and so on until the point where they were looked at as scum, as scabs, as the dregs of the earth so that they were able to be just eliminated. You know, we’ve done that here in America and other places around the world with regards to the most vulnerable: the children in the womb.
Yes, fetuses are prohibited from working and generally referred to as scum on a regular basis in America today, all as part of the effort to justify the legality of abortion.
This is just another reasonable analogy from Mat Staver.
