Thank you for the support!
I know that the word “holocaust” was used before World War II to describe any sort of mass destruction of life. But I also understand how it has been adopted to primarily refer to the genocide of Jewish people by the Nazis.
So while I don’t think it is incorrect to call the mass execution of unborn life a holocaust, I want to respect my Jewish brothers and sisters’ request to not use that word, because it can remind them of what happened to their people.
So I am going to use “genocide” instead because it is very generic.
But thank you so much, and I’m not trying to pressure anyone else into making the same language choice!
