South Carolia State Senator compares Planned Parenthood to Hitler

South Carolina State Senator Mike Fair of Greenville compared Planned Parenthood to Adolf Hitler on Tuesday in response to a poll the group commissioned on the subject of abortion.

Roe v Wade pro life poster generation abortionA new poll released Tuesday by Planned Parenthood found that the majority of respondents in the poll said they support access to abortion at 20 weeks after they were told that such abortions are rare and often involve fetal abnormalities.

I have no more confidence in Planned Parenthood than I do in Adolf Hitler, if he were around, to ask about whether his signature is binding,” Fair said. “He would say, ‘Yeah, it is.’ It’s not, it wasn’t. He, by the way, had the same philosophy of Planned Parenthood and that is that some people deserve to live more than other people based on what the culture says.” (Emphasis added, The Dispatch)

The poll, taken by Public Policy on behalf of Planned Parenthood, surveyed voters in three South Carolina districts. The House bill, sponsored by Rep. Wendy Nanney of Greenville, would ban abortions in cases in which the fetus was 20 weeks or older.

According to Planned Parenthood poll shows:

* In Cleary’s district, 65 percent of all voters say abortions should be legal after 20 weeks if a woman’s doctor determines that the woman would suffer serious, long-lasting health problems if she carried the pregnancy to term.

* In Courson’s district, 67 percent of all voters say abortions should be legal after 20 weeks if a woman’s doctor determines that the fetus is not yet viable and the woman and her family determine that her health and personal circumstances are such that she should not continue her pregnancy.

* And in Peeler’s district, 50 percent of all voters say abortions should be legal after 20 weeks if a pregnancy resulted from rape or incest.

“While women should not have to justify their personal medical decisions, the reality is that abortion later in pregnancy is rare and often happens under heartbreaking and tragic circumstances,” said Melissa Reed, a spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood. “Unfortunately opponents of safe and legal abortion have tried to distort that reality, and it is important for us to get the truth out there.”
