Alabama Pro-Life Legislators Face Criticism After Comparing Aborting 61 Million Babies to the Holocaust

April 24, 2019

Two pro-life Alabama lawmakers are facing national criticism for comparing the legalized killing of unborn babies in abortions to the Holocaust.

About 61 million unborn babies have been aborted since the U.S. Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade in 1973, and Alabama state Sen. Gregg Albritton and Rep. Terri Collins want to end the human rights abuse.

The Daily Mail reports the pro-life Republicans recently introduced the “Human Life Protection Act” in the state House and Senate to ban abortions in Alabama and challenge Roe.

Their legislation would prohibit abortions except for serious health risks to the mother and fatal fetal anomalies. It also would subject abortionists to felony charges, punishable by up to 10 years in prison for aborting an unborn baby. Mothers would not be punished.

In their bill, Collins and Albritton compared the killing of unborn babies in abortions to the Holocaust in Germany, Joseph Stalin’s Soviet gulags, the Rwandan genocide and other massive human rights abuses.

“All of these are widely acknowledged to have been crimes against humanity,” the bill states. “By comparison, more than 50 million babies have been aborted in the United States since the Roe decision in 1973, more than three times the number who were killed in German death camps, Chinese purges, Stalin’s gulags, Cambodian killing fields, and the Rwandan genocide combined.”

Leading pro-life groups predict the number of abortions actually is about 61 million.

But abortion activists quickly slammed the lawmakers for the comparison.

Jake Hyman, a spokesperson for the Anti-Defamation League, told CBS News that comparing abortions to the Holocaust is “deeply offensive.” He said his organization wrote to the Alabama House Health Committee urging it to oppose the bill.

“It belittles the memory of the six million Jews and millions of others who were murdered at the hands of the Nazis and misappropriates a profoundly tragic historical event for political purposes,” Hyman said.

Elisabeth Smith, a spokesperson for the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, also criticized the bill for its “outrageous” comparisons.

“It’s outrageously offensive to callously use the memory of the men, women, and children who lost their lives in the [H]olocaust and other genocides to argue against women’s right to self-determination,” Smith said. “The anti-abortion movement relies on hyperbole, ad hominem attacks, and medically inaccurate language to manipulate the emotions of the public.”

But Collins and Albritton defended their legislation. They pointed to Alabama voters who, last year, approved a constitutional amendment recognizing that unborn babies have a right to life.

“Abortion advocates speak to women’s rights, but they ignore the unborn child, while medical science has increasingly recognized the humanity of the unborn child,” their bill states.

Science confirms that a unique, individual human life comes into being at the moment of conception. By just six weeks of pregnancy, often before a woman even knows she is pregnant, an unborn baby’s heart is beating. Brain waves are detectable by nine weeks.

Now more than ever, scientific evidence makes it clear that an abortion kills a human being. And many states like Alabama are proposing laws to limit or ban abortions and protect unborn babies’ lives once again.

  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘
