Precious Life, an anti-abortion campaigning group in Northern Ireland, has compared advocating for a woman’s right to choose an abortion on medical grounds to Adolf Hitler’s eugenics programme which saw disabled people and other undesired members of society, including Jews, murdered by doctors.
The debate over abortion should be had without such cheap shots which diminish the Holocaust in what might be called ‘softcore’ Holocaust denial. Adolf Hitler was not a pro-choice campaigner, he was the ultimate author of the Holocaust. Precious Life ought to be ashamed of itself.
