Abortion is genocide

I am making another abortion thread because this needs to be clear.

abortion = genocide.

Examples…

  • systematic murder of girls in china
  • systematic eradication of kids with down syndrome in iceland
  • more black kids are killed in NYC in abortion than born - this falls under the umbrella term ‘black genocide’ which refers to this and other anti-black violence (lynching, etc)

Of course it’s genocide. Most liberals don’t get it though.

The worst in the history of humanity. One day, hopefully, people would look with horror and disbelief to this abortion generation.

Margaret Sanger (Founder Planned Parenthood): “We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population…"

On your first point, I wonder If feminists are out in the streets anywhere protesting the systematic murder of females in the womb China. I wonder why this isn’t the most urgent issue with feminists around the world. Even leaving China aside why aren’t they protesting that females are murdered in the womb all over the world whether it’s systematic or not.

On your second point, It’s not only in Iceland where those in the womb with down syndrome are being exterminated and eliminated. Other places in Europe as well.

On your third point, the logic is so twisted that abortion activists actually claim those opposed to abortion are racists while blacks are murdered in the womb at a higher percentage than other races in the US.

In context, she is not saying they want to exterminate the Negro population. It is a statement of worry that people might think that.

For that matter, Margaret Sanger herself was actually against abortion. The organization she founded has clearly drifted considerably from that position of hers.

Who cares about arguing over her. It’s a diversion. I’d hate to this thread turn into that. The genocide that’s taking place today is what’s important.

This thread, if it lasts, will go the same way as all the others. A majority will agree and a minority will say something along the lines of: ‘Your terms are wrong. The term genocide isn’t applicable’.

At which point you’ll argue that it is and it’s rinse and repeat for a while.

A better option might be to suggest how you would further reduce the already falling rate of abortions. Specifically amongst Catholic women.

Any suggestions?

I don’t know anyone here who thinks abortion isn’t a genocide. I know some who claim that the term Holocaust is not appropriate, me included.

Why?

As has been pointed out, that quote, simply dredged up from an anti abortion web site with no attempt by that site to put the comment in context, did not mean what the site wants you to think it meant. The full quote from a letter she wrote:

"We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members,”

Although your error was likely made unintentionally, perhaps you could take the opportunity to adress it.

And why would she be worried people might think that? Rhetorical of course…

The Holocaust is a unique genocide, much like abortion is. The Holocaust was a genocide against Jews (and, depending on the scholarly definition adopted, other targeted groups) during the general period surrounding WWII. Confusing this by applying the term to victims of other genocides does a disservice to all victims.

Can we say the Holocaust with a capital H is designated for the 20th century genocide of the Jews, and with a small h it is synonymous with genocide of any group.

I don’t think there’s such a thing as a unique genocide. Genocide is the attempt to exterminate a particular group. Is the attempted genocide of Jews the only one worthy of being called a whole burnt offering to God? Especially if we’re talking 6 million Jews and 5 million “others” or 1.5 million million unborn children. Granted, the unborn are being offered to Moloch, but I’m pretty sure the Nazis weren’t offering the Jews, Catholics, Gypsies, etc. to God either.

The only hiccup here is that holocaust (lowercase) refers to a sacrificial death by fire. This term, then, doesn’t really apply to abortion. But genocide does.

Before I ask the following question, I’d like to state I oppose abortion because I think it’s immoral.

My question is what exactly defines genocide? “the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation.”

Was 911 genocide? I’ve also heard people call abortion “human sacrifice.” What exactly qualifies something as sacrifice and/or genocide?

Each genocide is unique. The victims groups are unique, the methods of murder are unique, the efforts to reconcile communities after are unique, etc. That doesn’t privilege one above another: it recognizes that all victims of genocide deserve to be acknowledged in the context of their own situations.

(And as I explained in my previous post, none of these deaths are sacrificial. They’re murders.)
