Open Thread: Do you consider Abortion a War on Human Beings?
In a recent debate one of my friends on Facebook stated that he doesn't consider abortion to be a type of war. He doesn't even think abortion should be compared to slavery or The Holocaust. Over a million innocent human beings have been killed every year by abortions since Roe Vs. Wade. Abortionists may not use a weapon like rifles or guns but their weapons of choice is a pair of forceps and drugs which are used to kill innocent human life. I am not sure how someone who is pro-life would think that over one million murdered unborn babies per year should not be compared to The Holocaust. He thinks abortion is a holocaust but shouldn't be compared to The Holocaust. I think that abortion is worse than slavery. While some slaves were victims of murder many were not. The treatment of slaves was horrible but many were not killed so I don't see how slavery even comes close to the horrific nature of abortion. Do you think abortion is a type of war? Do you think abortion is considered a type of holocaust? Or compared to slavery? Should abortion be compared to The Holocaust?
