Polish anti-abortion groups shock with poster that shows images of blood-red aborted fetuses juxtaposed with Hitler’s face. ‘It is our duty to fight for the rights of murdered children,’ campaign organizer says.
Polish anti-abortion activists have caused shock with a giant billboard poster depicting aborted fetuses and Adolf Hitler in a campaign timed to remind Poles of Nazi rule during World War Two.
“Abortion was introduced for Polish women (especially Polish JEWISH women) by Hitler on March 9, 1943,” reads the poster, referring to a law passed by the Nazi regime during its brutal six-year occupation of Poland. Images of blood-red aborted fetuses are juxtaposed with Hitler’s brooding face on the poster. The anti-abortion group Pro said it was entirely legitimate to make a link between abortion and Nazi crimes.
“It is our duty to fight for the rights of murdered children,” Mariusz Dzierzawski, a campaign organizer, told Reuters. “Abortion is a crime and drawing such a parallel is absolutely justified.” Separately, he told the Gazeta Wyborcza daily: “Hitler gave the right of abortion to women, including Poles, who were considered representatives of inferior races.” YNET NEWS
