Wrong! World-wide abortion is indeed a holocaust – with a scope and consequences much greater than any other, in history.

Abortion Holocaust – Man’s inhumanity to man – WWII Holocaust

Michelle Duggar, along with her husband Jim Bob, are the stars of the TLC reality show 19 Kids & Counting, which has been on television for eleven seasons.  She is the mother of 19, does not believe in abortion, is openly pro-life, and not shy about sharing her opinion and religious beliefs.  I do not know her, but am sure she is a perfectly lovely woman.

However, to compare abortion to Hitler’s attempt to eradicate the Jewish people is offensive to me as a woman, as a Jew, and as an intelligent human being.  I didn’t really have an opinion on Mrs. Duggar until now, but will share that I think she is unaware and uneducated on the subject of the Holocaust. Shame on her for making such a hurtful statement.

The Holocaust was the systematic mass murder of six million Jews during World War ll.  Not only were Jews persecuted, but also Jehovah’s Witnesses, Roma Gypsies, blacks, homosexuals, Priests and Pastors who would not accept the Nazi ideology, the disabled and handicapped. Eleven million people were murdered during the Holocaust.

It was heartbreaking to hear what Mrs. Duggar said.  How is it possible that people are so uneducated about this time in history?  How is possible that a seemingly lovely woman would say such an idiotic thing in order to push her own personal agenda? How is it possible that those who lost their lives during the Holocaust are disrespected in this way?

Editor’s note: I am offended at the way s person who claims to have experienced the horrors of the historical WWII holocaust and who also claims to be a woman, a Jew, and an intelligent human being – can possibly fail to acknowledge other, similar events – clear and blatant examples of man’s inhumanity to man – on a massive scale – occurring in today’s world – right before her eyes.

This constitutes the height of political/cultural hubris and elitism – and a new low, for the human race.

With already 50 million plus world-wide deaths from abortion – and counting – there is no excuse.

Shame on you, Ms. Angel!
