Abortion is a Holocaust

I've been hearing this phrase over the past year and wasn't sure if I believed it to be true.  Yes, abortion is evil and so is a holocaust but can they be linked?  I decided to think about it more and research it and this is what I concluded:
Abortion is a Holocaust

And here's why:

I first went to Dictionary.com and typed in the word holocaust.  Here is what it says:
  • a great or complete devastion or destruction, especially by fire.
  • a sacrifice completely consumed by fire; burnt offering.
  • the systematic mass slaughter of European Jews in Nazi concentration camps in WWII
  • any mass slaughter or reckless destruction of life.
Yes, you can call it "a mass slaughter or reckless destruction of life" because since Roe vs. Wade legalized abortion in 1973, it is estimated that there have been nearly 50 million done.  That's a staggering number and I'm going to say it's even worse than a holocaust. 

My city has two abortion clinics and I go to a prayer vigil at one almost weekly.  On these Thursday mornings, there is an average of 7-12 babies murdered.  That's one day.  The doctor does abortions on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.  There are most likely, the same amount performed "in the name of women's healthcare" on Tuesdays and Saturdays.  I'll be conservative here and say 7 on each day.  

So, in one week at this one clinic there are 21 babies killed.
In one month, that would add up to 84 babies murdered.
In one year, that would calculate up to 1,008 babies killed.

That's on the low end and it's only at one clinic.  We could probably double those numbers if we add up the abortions performed in the second clinic in my city.

Now here is the truly disturbing part that makes it worse than a holocaust in my opinion:
  • It is legal in our society.  
  • Doctors are paid to kill the babies in the name of women's reproductive health.
  • The mothers are allowing it to happen and in fact, seek it out.
  • Those who oppose it our considered old fashioned and trying to hurt women.

It's is the work of the devil and he has society's thinking upside down on this one.  Life is life and is given to us by God.  Even if this life is unwanted, there are other options than abortion.

St. Joseph, pray for us.
St. Gerard, pray for us.
St. Padre Pio, pray for us.

Blessings,
Noreen

  4. Hi friends, I don't mean to minimize or take away from the atrocity of the Holocaust during WWII. That was truly heinous yet so is abortion and the world knows it's happening. With social media at our fingertips, we are well versed in women's reproductive health if we'll only open our hearts to the will of God.

  5. Noreen, thank you for your courageous post, and even more, for your visible witness outside of the abortuary.

    I think abortion may exceed any holocaust the world has ever before seen..in sheer numbers slone, but also because the very mother of the child is implicit...rather than in the holocausts committed by Hitler, Stalin, etc.

    The 50 plus million number is staggering, but doesn't even take into account the unknown chemical abortions..many resulting from ovulation taking place while women are on the pill...approximately 20 percent of the time. The pill makes the womb hostile to implantation, and so the week old embryo starves to death. Many women are unaware of the abortifacient action of hormonal birth control

    I still do not know how this holocaust can be legal in our country, and supported by "respectable" people. How can such a thing happen? Will it ever end? Only by God's Grace...

    Meanwhile, each baby saved by people like you is a triumph over evil...such innocent little ones. How God must weep!

    God bless you, Noreen...and thank you!

  7. We know what you mean, Noreen! Thanks for sharing this post as I think it's always good for people to hear different analogies that help to magnify the atrocity that abortion really is. God bless you, warrior for Christ. We will continue to help fight the good fight!

  8. Yes, it is a holocaust. May God open the eyes of everyone in this world to the truth about abortion. Thank you for your defense of the "little ones" who have no voice of their own yet. God bless.

  9. Wonderfully written post, Noreen. The truth of abortion is so sad. I know the truth, but every so often the truth slaps me in the face and I'm forced to see it in a new way. Thanks for your wonderful post.
