The Polish anti-abortion group Fundacja pro launched a new campain with this poster:
It says: “Abortion for Poles: introduced by Hitler, March 9, 1943.”
And it is true, in 1943 Hitler allowed Polish women to do abortions. The aim was to prevent reproduction of “races of minor value”. However, the counterpart of this sick ideology was to increase the reproduction of “superior races” – in Hitler’s view: the Germans. So at the same time he introduced the death penalty for abortions done by German women.
Just to point out this aspect that Fundacja pro seems to have forgotten, I have created this poster:
“Abortion ban with death penalty for Germans: introduced by Hitler”
Now I leave it to the reader if Hitler is a helping argument in the abortion debate.
