Gisella Perl was forced to work as a doctor in Auschwitz concentration camp during the holocaust.
She was ordered to report ever pregnant women do the physician Dr. Josef Mengele, who would then use the women for cruel experiments (e.g. vivisections) before killing them.
She saved hundreds of women by performing abortions on them before their pregnancy was discovered, without having access to basic medical supplies. She became known as the “Angel of Auschwitz”.
After being rescued from Bergen-Belsen concentration camp she tried to commit suicide, but survived, recovered and kept working as a gynecologist, delivering more than 3000 babies.
I want to nail this to the forehead of every anti-abortionist who uses the word “Holocaust” when talking about legal abortions.
Always, always, always remind pro-lifers how many more people would have died during the holocaust without access to abortion, and remind them ho they would have died.
Never let pro-lifers compare the victims of the holocaust to fetuses that have no concept of their own life or being. It’s not equivalent and it’s gross.
Stop comparing abortion, or anything else, to the Holocaust.
