Fox News host Laura Ingraham compares Planned Parenthood to Adolf Hitler

The Fox News host and conservative commentator Laura Ingraham has given a damning critique of Planned Parenthood by comparing it the Adolf Hitler.

Ingraham, who has been known to spread right-wing conspiracy theories in the past, used her platform on Fox to discuss the recent failed Republican bill that would protect abortion survivors.

The bill which was blocked by Democrats would add further requirements and care, on top of pre-existing ones, be given to a child in the unlikely scenario of a failed abortion.

Whilst giving her take on the story, Ingraham lashed out at the feminist activist Gloria Steinem, who told The Today Show that much like the Republicans, Hitler had also opposed abortions.

On a more serious note, to put it mildly, is why Hitler was actually elected is that he campaigned against abortion.

He padlocked the family planning clinics. That is still relevant in terms of the right wing. 

Ingraham took great exception to this and accused Steinem of "getting a bit doddy in her old age" and claimed that by her logic the only way to "save humanity" was to "kill off more humans."

The 55-year-old then went on to claim that the abortions and Planned Parenthood were not unlike the genocide carried out by Hitler and the Nazis in World War II.

Notice how Steinem practices the art of self-projection. Hitler, just like Planned Parenthood, practice and defended mass extermination all in the name of racial purity. Which is exactly what the founder of Planned Parenthood believed.

Ingraham then went on to detail some problematic and questionable quotes from the 1920s from Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, who was in favour of eugenics in the early 20 century.

She said 'we want a world freer, happier, cleaner - we want a race of thoroughbreds.' It should surprise you that Sanger established her first clinic in Harlem in 1930. Why Harlem?

As the Washington Times explains '...that's where a lot of black people she often referred to as 'human weeds' lived. Sanger described it as 'an experimental clinic established for the benefit of coloured people.'

For her the world 'benefit' really just meant 'elimination.' In her infamous letter to Clarence Gamble, it was about the need to use the cover of ministers to set up these clinics. 

She wrote too him; 'the most successful educational approach to their population is through a religious appeal. We don't want the world to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can strengthen out that idea if it should occur to their more rebellious members. 

An astonished Ingraham, aghast at what she has just read out, then claims that "the left then and the left today has an insatiable taste for this death culture."

She concludes the segment by playing a clip from the 1968 horror movie Rosemary's Baby which doesn't seem to have anything to do with her argument, then again this is a person who has compared abortions to the Holocaust...
