The Anti-Defamation League wants presidential candidate Mike Huckabee to quit using Holocaust imagery in describing abortion. Huckabee, a Republican and former governor of Arkansas, referred to the â€œholocaust of liberalized abortionâ€ at the Family Research Councilâ€™s Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., last weekend. In a letter to the Huckabee, ADL National Director Abraham Foxman said that â€œsuch analogies can only trivialize and diminish the horror, and cause further pain to Holocaust survivors and to those alive today who lost friends and loved ones.â€
Huckabee’s office did not return JTA calls seeking comment.
