A New Federal Court Judge Compared Abortion To Slavery. He's Not Alone.


A New Federal Court Judge Compared Abortion To Slavery. He's Not Alone.
HuffPost

Outside an abortion clinic in Huntsville, Alabama, last month, protesters held signs reading âBabies are murdered hereâ and âI stand against Planned Parenthood.â They also held signs featuring a photo of a black toddler they claimed to have helped âsaveâ from an abortion provider by talking the childâs mother out of having an abortion.Among the protesters at the Huntsville clinic, the abortion-slavery analogy was popular. âIt used to be legal for me to own people, but we know thatâs wrong now,â one protester told HuffPost. âItâs like slavery but worse,â another said.âPeople think itâs okay because itâs legal and because [a fetus] is not a person, but they said that about slaves, too.âThis is a common refrain among abortion opponents. The day before, outside a clinic in Tuscaloosa, another protester made the same argument equating fetuses to slaves.
