In the wake of Pope Francis’ comments likening eugenics abortion to Nazi war crimes, Richard Dawkins (the notorious atheist, evolutionary biologist and author of “The God Delusion”) dropped this humdinger:
“And you thought Francis was the ‘good Pope’?… Abortion to avoid birth defects is not about eugenics. It’s about the avoidance of individual human suffering.”
Dawkins should probably leave prescribing good and evil to those who have studied it for two millennia — or perhaps he should read up on Nazi-era eugenics before firing off a knee-jerk, leftist tweet.

Famed atheist Richard Dawkins, author of “The God Delusion,” felt triggered by comments from Pope Francis over the weekend likening eugenics abortion to Nazi crimes.
“In the last century, the entire world was scandalized by what the Nazis did to ensure the purity of the race,” the Roman Pontiff said. “Today we do the same, but with white gloves.”
The evolutionary biologist disagreed with the Pope, saying such abortions are about avoiding “human suffering.”
“And you thought Francis was the ‘good Pope’?” mocked Dawkins on Twitter. “Abortion to avoid birth defects is not about eugenics. It’s about the avoidance of individual human suffering.”
