Breitbart News Compares Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards To Hitler

Breitbart News compared Planned Parenthood to Nazis, writing that the organization's president, Cecile Richards, "is well on her way to personally matching Hitler's body count."
In the wake of the release of a series of deceptively-edited videos from anti-choice group The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) -- all of which have been consistently debunked and called-out by the media for showing no evidence that Planned Parenthood broke any laws in obtaining fetal tissue donations from consenting patients -- right-wing media were quick to compare the health care provider to Nazis.
Breitbart News again pushed the comparison in an August 24 article that featured the Planned Parenthood logo in the shape of a Nazi swastika and stated, "Planned Parenthood has since 1970 performed 7 million abortions, comfortably surpassing Hitler." Going on to attack Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, the article claimed that she has "earned her 'half Holocaust' status" by "presid[ing] over three million abortions" during her time there:
Planned Parenthood can attribute a good portion of their boffo baby-killing business to their president since 2006, Cecile Richards. Richards is well on her way to personally matching Hitler's body count. Breitbart has done the grim maths so you don't have to.
Using a conservative estimate of 300,000 abortions a year -- or 300 kiloscrapes, using the technical metric measure -- Cecile Richards has presided over three million abortions, or three megascrapes in her ten years as president of the organisation. This has earned her "half Holocaust" status. Full Holocaust seems eminently reachable given Planned Parenthood's growing hegemony in the abortion industry.
But under Richards the numbers have skyrocketed such that in just the last ten years, at least 3 million young lives were ended. If Cecile stays in her post another decade, she will reach "full Hitler," by matching the six million deaths of the Holocaust. In fact it'll probably be sooner than that, given the acceleration during her reign.
There are many comparisons to be made here. Some of the revelations coming out about Planned Parenthood remind us of the ghoulish experiments of Dr. Mengele and the odious Unit 731 in Japan, both of which performed terrible tests on living subjects in the name of furthering medical science.
