During his keynote speech at the Republican Party of Iowa’s Celebrate Life event on Saturday, Fox News host Mike Huckabee compared abortion in the United States to the Nazi Holocaust (video below).
According to the TheIowaRepublican.com, Huckabee recalled that Oskar Schindler, a German businessman, saved about 1,200 Jews from the Holocaust by employing them in his factories.
Huckabee argued the U.S. could use people like Schindler who were willing to “intervene on behalf of human life,” but didn't say exactly how that would work with an unborn baby.
“And now we are called into this incredible Holocaust of our own in America. Fifty-five million babies. Fifty-five million babies since 1973 have died in what ought to be the safest place in the world, their mother’s womb," said Huckabee.
"It has become one of the most dangerous places for a baby to be. For us, this is not about the politics of Democrat or Republican, winning or losing, it is about our capacity to one day stand before a holy God and give an account for whether we stood between life and death for those who had no voice but ours.”
