Jewish person here. Can you stop appropriating my ancestral tragedy to try and make abortion sound bad? Because if you can’t make abortion sound horrifying without parasitically leaching tragedy from elsewhere to attach it to, it isn’t that bad. Also, fuck off.


Above all others, a Jewish person should want humanity to learn from history, lest it be repeated. What you are saying is that you don’t want to use your particular people’s tragedy to prevent the slaughter of others. Does this truly make sense to you?

The Jewish people were not the only ones targeted by the Nazi’s, so this tragedy does not belong exclusively to ‘your’ people. Other victims included Gypsies, Poles and other Slavs, and people with physical or mental disabilities. Others were victims because of what they did. These victims included Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, the dissenting clergy, Communists, and Socialists.

All of this aside, you need to understand the meaning of the word holocaust. This word does not exclusively define the genocide of the Jewish people. Convention applies the capitalized version of this word to this particular human atrocity, as in the Holocaust.

For your future reference:

hol·o·caust [ˈhäləˌkôst]

noun: holocaust; plural noun: holocausts

1. destruction or slaughter on a mass scale, esp. caused by fire or nuclear war.

“a nuclear holocaust”

synonyms: cataclysm, disaster, catastrophe; destruction, devastation, annihilation; massacre, slaughter, mass murder, extermination, extirpation, carnage, butchery

2. historical

a Jewish sacrificial offering that is burned completely on an altar.


Middle English: from Old French holocauste, via late Latin from Greek holokauston, from holos ‘whole’ + kaustos ‘burned’ (from kaiein ‘burn’).

As you can see, abortion can legitimately be referred to as a holocaust. It is the slaughter of living human beings on a mass scale. In fact, after these human beings are butchered, they are typically burned in incinerators as bio-waste.


This man is burning the remains of aborted children. He works for Stericycle, a ‘hazardous waste’ company that contracts with abortion facilities to incinerate the children they relentlessly slaughter day after day.

Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
