49,551,703 and Counting

A "holocaust?" Are you kidding me? The more I think about these comments by Rep. Grayson, the more frustrated I become. At first I wondered if he understood the irony in his comments. After all, there have been 49,551,703 abortions in the United States since 1973--an average of 1,376,436 per year and he happens to be a proponent of abortion rights. Rep. Grayson says that there have been 44,789 deaths every year due to lack of health care. Of course no one thinks that preventable deaths are acceptable. But there is a huge difference between a person dying because of omission and the willful taking of an innocent life. He makes it clear that he understands the connection between the abortion and health care debates when he says, "We should care about people even after they are born."

To say that the health care situation is even close to a holocaust is ridiculous. No one's life is being taken. However, I can think of over 49,000,000 examples of a true holocaust.
