This isn't funny...

Nor is it meant to be.

A note from the cartoonist, John Francis Borra:

To anyone familiar with the Third Reich, it’s obvious what I’ve done here. This is a play on the iron gates surrounding Auschwitz concentration camp. The actual iron gates read Arbeit Macht Frei (Work Makes You Free). This was, of course, the big lie fed to inmates in order to keep them manageable as they were led from cattle cars to their deaths in the showers. Planned Parenthood’s big lie to society is strikingly similar: Abortion Makes You Free. The parallel is dramatic and perfectly appropriate. As a matter of fact, it’s not unlike any other cartoon I’ve done about the culture of death; the truth is so grotesque, so clear, so galling that little imagination– and no exaggeration at all– is required to spin editorial material from it.

[Thanks to my friend Linda for the cartoon.]

  1. I'm glad you posted this, Terry. And you are correct, there is nothing funny about it. The cartoonist appropriately elucidates the similarities between two groups who are like-minded in many ways.

    What an even greater shame when we find so called “Catholics” with both feet in that camp.

  2. Didn't Huckabee just get slammed for equating abortion to a holocaust? If it isn't a holocaust, then the definition of that word has changed.
