Fast forward seventy years and you reach the early 21st century. Thankfully, concentration camps are now nearly extinct, although some may be found in far corners of the world. But an interesting comparison can be made between those camps and abortion. People in concentration camps were stuck behind walls, unable to escape. Babies in a mother's womb are likewise confined to a certain area. Millions of Jews and others were systematically destroyed. Millions of babies have been aborted. The victims of the concentrations were eliminated because they were not even considered to be human beings. An unborn baby is classified as a fetus, and allegedly contains no life until birth. Finally, few people defended the rights of the internees of the camps. Today, more people defend the rights of unborn children, but not nearly enough.
The universal outrage about concentration camps has abounded for the last seventy years. Outrage about abortion, though real for some people and fake for others, has not reached that same level. The only way the outrage can climb to that same level is through hard work by those who support life. They need to vote for the right people, teach their children the right things, and pray with the right fervency. Only then will the right opinion prevail.
