Yesterday, January 27, 2019 was International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The date is set aside for nations around the world to remember the over 6 million Jews murdered by Nazi Germany. The Holocaust, also known as the Shoah, was Nazi Germany’s “Final Solution” for eliminating Jews. From 1941-1945 6 million Jews had been systematically murdered. In January of 1945, the last concentration camp was finally liberated. In November of 2005, International Holocaust Remembrance Day was created.
In light of those facts, it’s no surprise that Planned Parenthood is coming under fire for it’s extremely ironic and insensitive tweet. The nation’s largest abortion provider tried to twist the the purpose and meaning of International Holocaust Remembrance Day in an attempt to further their own agenda.
On Sunday, Planned Parenthood posted a tweet claiming to “remember the tremendous, immeasurable human cost of bigotry” and “reaffirm that there can be no place for antisemitism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, or *any* form of hatred in our communities, our politics, and our country.”
On #HolocaustMemorialDay, we remember the tremendous, immeasurable human cost of bigotry — and we reaffirm that there can be no place for antisemitism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, or *any* form of hatred in our communities, our politics, and our country.— Planned Parenthood Action (@PPact) January 27, 2019
More than 60 million babies have been killed from abortion since Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood is responsible for more than 8 million of deaths. Planned Parenthood has now killed roughly 2 million more people than were killed in the Holocaust. And while certainly not lessening the atrocities of the Holocaust, Planned Parenthood has absolutely no place to be talking about the”tremendous, immeasurable human cost of bigotry” when it is responsible for murdering 332,757 babies just last year alone.
It’s almost beyond conceivable that an organization themselves responsible for stopping the heartbeats of millions of babies would decided to weigh in on International Holocaust Remembrance Day. To do so is highly insensitive and inappropriate, both to mothers and babies who they specifically target, and to the Jewish people whom International Holocaust Memorial Day is supposed to be about.
