Although the similarities to modern society are profound, I think we too easily miss the connection. The current culture of abortion on demand also allows for the medical termination of lives deemed unworthy. Each day, thousands of children are murdered in the United States, often for no reason other than they were unwanted by their parents. The case of Canadian Katrina Effert, which has recently resurfaced in the news, raises concerns that the climate regarding the sanctity of life continues to deteriorate. In 2005, as a new mother, she strangled her unwanted infant with her underwear and threw the baby over the fence into her neighbor's yard. She was recently granted a suspended sentence. The judge presiding over the case, commented "while many Canadians undoubtedly view abortion as a less than ideal solution to unprotected sex and unwanted pregnancy, they generally understand, accept and sympathize with the onerous demands pregnancy and childbirth exact from mothers, especially mothers without support." Effert received a suspended sentence. For infanticide.
At what point may we conclude that a punishable offense has taken place? When the child is 5 months old? 5 years old? When will we acknowledge that we have justified murder as a legal medical procedure? When will we realize that we accept the wholesale termination of helpless people as a matter of convenience?
The ongoing abortion debate is not simply a political issue. It is the wanton disregard of human life. Like the holocaust.
I would also encourage you to watch this video. Ray Comfort helps people to see the similarities between what Hitler did and modern abortion.
