Washington Times | The similarities between slavery and abortion

On a recent CNN segment, former senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum pointed out the hypocrisy of the left condemning our country’s history of racism while still supporting abortion today.

Mr. Santorum critiqued Bakari Sellers’ claim that “there is nothing the same about slavery and abortion.”

Bakari Sellers is wrong and Rick Santorum is right. There is a lot in common between slavery and abortion, namely that for society to justify either, the victims must be dehumanized.

Slave owners treated slaves as property. Abortionists treat human children as “just a clump of cells.” In both cases, human beings, created in the image of God and bestowed with unalienable rights, are reduced in stature for a society to justify their horrendous treatment.
