The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum surely qualifies as one of the world's best resources on genocide studies. The museum concerns itself not only with the Holocaust of World War II, but also with other modern genocides, such as those in Bosnia, Cambodia and elsewhere. Currently, the museum website presents a big feature on "The World's Refugee Crisis" involving Syrian refugees.
How can it be then, that I search the museum website in vain for even a single reference to the worst mass killing of all time: the continuing loss of human life through abortion? How is it possible that the museum website provides the audio of lectures such as "How Might Another Holocaust Be Prevented?", paradoxically in complete ignorance of the holocaust of unborn children that is happening at this very moment?
This strange omission is not unique to the Holocaust Museum. Indeed, abortion is the shocking blind spot of the entire international community of justice seekers, truth defenders and human rights activists, which includes innumerable organizations including Amnesty International and other human rights groups.
How can it be explained that this very community, filled as they are with zeal for preventing and ending genocides and mass atrocities around the world, has not noticed the ongoing murder of over 57 million unborn human beings in the United States alone (since Roe v. Wade)?
This incredible and catastrophic ignorance surely begs for some kind of explanation. One day, answers will also be demanded by incredulous future generations.
