COLUMBIA, SC, April 7, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A state legislator in South Carolina dismissed a poll conducted by Planned Parenthood, saying the organization has the truthfulness and respect for life of one of history's most notorious dictators.

“I have no more confidence in Planned Parenthood than I do in Adolf Hitler,” said State Sen. Mike Fair, who represents Greenville, South Carolina.

The Nazi Party is often described as the progenitor of the Big Lie technique, repeating a false statement in the hopes that its ubiquity will lend it credence.

Fair added that Adolf Hitler “had the same philosophy of Planned Parenthood – and that is that some people deserve to live more than other people based on what the culture says.”

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was a dedicated supporter of eugenics. In 1932, Sanger wrote that the government should “apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization, and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”

Hitler drew some of his intellectual formation from the U.S. eugenics movement. He would later applaud those leaders who enacted Sanger's suggested program.

“I have studied with interest the laws of several American states concerning prevention of reproduction by people whose progeny would, in all probability, be of no value or be injurious to the racial stock," Hitler said.

The poll Fair derided reportedly showed that residents in several counties supported abortion-on-demand after 20 weeks once told that such abortions constitute approximately one percent of all abortions.
