I was startled last night to read that this was part of the keynote speech at the March for Life last weekend –
“The argument, I guess here, is that would you kill baby Hitler?” Shapiro said in what appeared to be a response to a question submitted online. “And the truth is that no pro-life person on earth would kill baby Hitler, because baby Hitler wasn’t Hitler, adult Hitler was Hitler. Baby Hitler was a baby. What you presumably want to do with baby Hitler is take baby Hitler out of baby Hitler’s house and move baby Hitler into a better house where he would not grow up to be Hitler, right? That’s the idea.”

It wasn’t that a pro-lifer wouldn’t kill a baby that got my attention – it was that the perspective of evangelical Christians is a lot like the philosophy of Georgia Tann who took babies from poor families in order to give them to wealthy clients suffering from infertility. It was her perspective that their outcomes would be better. My own mother was one of those babies. And yes, she had a good outcome but that really isn’t the point.
I believe one of the unconscious reasons for the anti-abortion stance is to take babies from unwed and poverty stricken mothers and indoctrinate them with religious beliefs. To raise up an army of the faithful and to diminish the number of heathens.
