Laura Ingraham: ‘Hitler, Just Like Planned Parenthood, Practiced and Defended Mass Extermination’

Fox News host says Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger “believed deeply in eugenics”

Fox News host Laura Ingraham compared Planned Parenthood to Adolf Hitler on Tuesday night, saying both “practiced and defended mass extermination.”
Ingraham made her comparison while talking about a bill blocked by Senate Democrats that would’ve added more care for babies born after failed abortions. Ingraham then criticized a recent media appearance by feminist icon Gloria Steinem, where Steinem said Hitler was anti-abortion — a view that is “still relevant in terms of the right-wing,” she said.
“I’m afraid Gloria’s getting a bit doddy in her old age,” Ingraham quipped. “Hitler, just like Planned Parenthood, practiced and defended mass extermination, all in the name of racial purity.”
A brief clip of Ingraham’s comments were recorded by Vox’s Aaron Rupar:

Hitler, as the head of Nazi Germany, not only oversaw the Holocaust but also twisted plans to eradicate “undesirable” traits in the German population, including the forced sterilization of deaf Germans. Many Nazi anti-abortion laws still remain, including one law prohibiting doctors from advertising they perform abortions, as The New York Times reported last year.

Ingraham went on to say Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger “believed deeply in eugenics,” arguing the organization set up one of its first clinics in Harlem, New York City, for racist reasons.
