Country Music Icon Charlie Daniels Compares NY Abortion Law to Holocaust: ‘Every Bit as Evil’
Country music icon Charlie Daniels isn’t holding anything back in his criticism of New York’s radical new abortion law, which he compared to the Holocaust.
In a column for CNS News, Daniels described the bill, which legalized abortion “at any time when necessary to protect a woman’s life or health,” as “every bit as satanically inspired” as the 1940s genocide.
“There were six million Jews murdered by the Nazis, in gas chambers, mass shootings, and any other kind of monstrous methods of death these demonic animals could come up with,” he wrote. “Horrible, right? Could never happen in the United States of America, right? Wrong.”
The 82-year-old entertainer also slammed lawmakers in Virginia who promoted a bill similar to the legislation Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) signed last month in New York.
The proposed law in Virginia would have made accessing late-term abortion easier, and according to Del. Kathy Tran (D), the lead sponsor of the legislation, it would have permitted abortion up until birth.
Despite being voted down, embattled Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) felt the need to defend Tran and her controversial legislation. During a radio interview last week on WTOP-FM, the governor explained a scenario in which a newborn infant would be “kept comfortable” and “resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired” while the mother and her doctor discuss the baby’s future.
Daniels described the Virginia proposal as “a totally barbaric piece of legislation proposed by radical abortion proponents.”
