Liberals Want “19 Kids and Counting” Canceled After Duggar Calls Abortion a “Baby Holocaust”

When I went to RH Reality Check yesterday to read an article, I was greeted by this (click to enlarge)…


Sure enough, liberals are up in arms about a comment Jim Bob Duggar made during Family Research Council’s recent Values Voter Summit…


I heard Governor Huckabee speak and he was sharing how he had taken his daughter Sarah over to one of the concentration camps…. He said, as they were walking out of that concentration camp, he said little Sarah… looked up at him and said, “Daddy, why didn’t somebody do something?”

And, you know what? That’s where we’re at in our nation. Do we want our children, when we’re going to tell them about how great America was, they’re going to look at you and say, “Why didn’t somebody do something?”

Asked later to clarify what he meant, the 19 Kids and Counting patriarch specified he was indeed speaking about the abortion holocaust. From the Daily Press:

… Duggar did not back down.

“Let me clarify,” he said. “We have since 1973 (when Roe v. Wade was decided) had 55 million abortions, so what we have going on is a baby holocaust,” Duggar said.

For the record, here’s the definition of “holocaust”:


So the term “holocaust” can be appropriately used to describe the mass genocide of babies via abortion, and it can also be used to compare abortion to the Jewish Holocaust, although as tragic as the latter was, its death toll pales in comparison to the former.



It’s fascinating how abortion supporters heard Duggar’s comment. Note that RH Reality Check – a website dedicated to promoting abortion – totally missed a point that would have hit it on the head if a hammer:

[T]his is both unacceptable and insidious. Unacceptable, because there is no way in which losing a democratic election is akin to genocide. Unacceptable because there is no way in which tolerating a health care policy you don’t like is comparable to having soldiers rip families from their homes and send them to camps where slave-labor, starvation, and gas chambers were the norm. And it’s insidious, because oceans of pain and suffering can be dismissed if the injustice that caused them has to be ‘like the Holocaust’ before it’s worth fighting.

Jezebel whined:

[O]ne might think Duggar had realized that perhaps he went a little far with his comparison of liberal Americans to Nazis.

How, exactly? Credo concluded:

There is no way in which it’s acceptable to suggest that a mom deciding not to add to a family that may be struggling is committing a crime of genocide. There is no way in which the medical professionals who help her are like soldiers ripping families from their homes and sending them to camps where slave-labor, starvation, and gas chambers were the norm.

Yes, way. Note: Jill Stanek fought to stop “live birth abortions” after witnessing one as an RN at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois. That led to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act legislation, signed by President Bush, that would ensure that proper medical care be given to unborn children who survive botched abortion attempts.
