[Trigger warning: Holocaust, forced sterilisation]
Bernard Moran, new president of Voice for
Controlling Women Life, really understands the tough issues around getting wimminz back in the kitchen the abortion debate:
“I grew up in a time where blacks were called [redacted] and Jews were called [redacted] and people were treated as sub-human. “
Because as we all know that kind of thing never happens these days, right? Anyone?
Bueller Mel Gibson/George Zimmerman?
There’s something so amazingly distasteful about the way pampered gentile antichoicers like to exploit the Holocaust to make their fight to lock up my uterus look somehow noble, part of a grand lineage of Fighting For What’s Right.
Of course the fact that the Nazis were down with removing people’s reproductive choices (whether through taking away their ability to have children or by applying immense pressure to have as many as possible, depending on one’s race/ethnicity) never seems to get much of a mention. The irony might provide some kind of personal insight, and we can’t have that.
(It’s not a Godwin if they bring up Nazis first.)
H/T the most excellent and helpful ALRANZ abortion news round-up, and minor kudos to the Taranaki Daily News for using “anti-abortion” and not “pro-life”.
