Should pro-lifers compare abortion to things like the Connecticut tragedy? To answer this question one must first answer the question: what is abortion?

Abortion is simply a word used to describe the action of killing a human person in one of the early stages of that human person’s development, just as shooting is simply a word to describe how the human persons in that school in Connecticut or the theatre in Colorado were killed. Both words describe a different method used to end the life of human persons who are all in different stages of their life and development.

In the same way, when I compare the Nazi Holocaust and the Abortion Holocaust, I am showing that they are both horrific events that have claimed the lives of millions of innocent human persons. One took place 70 years ago and one is taking place right now.

I could easily show comparisons to many other events in history such as Columbine, slavery, earthquakes and many more tragic events that have claimed so many innocent lives.

I will be totally honest here: I do not simply believe I have the right to make these comparisons; I believe I am compelled to make these comparisons. I believe that the blood of 55,000,000 of my fellow Americans who have been massacred by abortionists must be mourned.

In 1999 a gruesome discovery was made that an IL hospital was shelving babies to die in a soiled utility room who had survived their abortions.

The federal Born Alive Infants Protection Act was introduced in 2000 to provide legal protection to all born babies, wanted or not, including the right to medical care.

In 2002, Born Alive passed unanimously in the U.S. Senate and by overwhelming voice vote in the House. On August 5, President George W. Bush signed the bill into law.

Despite that, numerous accounts from various parts of the country document abortion survivors are still being medically neglected until the die or outright killed – infanticide.

BornAliveTruth.org exists to expose the shocking truth and pursue enforcement of Born Alive.

Our first project in Autumn 2008 was to spotlight then-presidential candidate Barack Obama’s opposition as an IL state senator to the identical Born Alive bill that passed so overwhelmingly on the federal level.

Our second project is to promote the movie 22weeks, which tells the true story of a baby aborted alive in a toilet in an Orlando abortion clinic in 2005, with workers refusing to give the baby help or allow EMTs into the building following a 911 call for help from the mother’s friend. To date, there has been no prosecution.
