Gloria Steinem Compares Pro-Lifers to Nazis

Feminist icon Gloria Steinem compared supporters of the pro-life movement in America to Nazis because Adolf Hitler “campaigned against abortion.”

“[Hitler] was elected and he campaigned against abortion,” Steinem said on NBC’s Today show on Tuesday to promote her book Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions. “I mean, that was — he padlocked the family planning clinics. Okay, so that is still relevant in the terms of the right wing.”

“Hitler was vehemently anti-abortion for Nordic Germans,” scholar Dinesh D’Souza tweeted in response, “and vehemently pro-abortion for the so-called inferior races. This can hardly be called a pro-life position!”
