The Holocaust is the wrong reference for Pro-Life Apologetics

by: tonykirby

Wed Nov 23, 2011 at 03:45:22 AM EST


The recent movie "180" has been making a splash as a movie about converting people to the pro-life position. It accomplishes this by focusing the apologetics on comparisons to the government of Nazi Germany and Adolf Hitler.

This is not a new strategy or a new tactic, and its wider cultural use has even been parodied as requiring "Godwin's Law" to identify the automatic loser of an argument as whomever invokes Hitler first. So the logic goes, if you invoke Hitler and compare your opponents to Hitler, you're intellectually desperate and thus you've lost.

To no one's surprise, the Anti-Defamation League has condemned any comparison to the Holocaust, and even the inventor of Godwin's law has said he regrets that it might stifle discussions about the Holocaust.

That said, does the Holocaust offer an opportunity to teach pro-life apologetics? Or is it a sloppy comparison that ultimately frustrates and confuses our outreach.

The Unborn Rights Campaign

It's tough to be a motivated pro-lifer over time. Being active in pro-life affairs means constantly recruiting and watching other people burn out, get tired, and try to focus on less emotionally exhausting things.

We've all felt it, we all know the emotional drag. The let-downs by politicians, political parties, organizations and even churches and religious leaders. We work, act and try hard to win hearts and minds, support legal and political change, and try to work on the culture.

Too often it never seems like it's changing, that the pro-life movement is stuck. It's hard to keep perspective.
