Kansas senator compares Planned Parenthood to Nazi concentration camp


A $25 donation made to Planned Parenthood in the name of a Republican Kansas state senator resulted in the lawmaker contacting the organization and comparing them to a Nazi death camp, a statement he later amplified.

Senator Steve Fitzgerald (R-Leavenworth) contacted Planned Parenthood last week to say a donation in his name is “as bad – or worse – as having one’s name associated with Dachau,” a concentration camp that killed an estimated 31,951 in Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.

Given the opportunity to walk back the statement on Monday, Fitzgerald only conceded that he did not go far enough.

I think the Nazis ought to be incensed by the comparison, Fitzgerald told the Kansas City Star.
