Georgia Businesses Called Out By Name
A new report from The Forward reveals that a Georgia Republican Party official compared Georgia companies that provide employees abortion care access to Nazi persecution of Jewish people during the Holocaust.
The comments were made by Jason Shepherd, a Kemp ally who is a member of the GOP state committee and former chair of the Cobb County Republican Party, during an event hosted by Cobb Young Republicans and Georgia Life Alliance.
The Nazi regime decided Jews “were not people and they did not have a right to life,” said Jason Shepherd. “Today we have corporate America — because of expenses and the cost — saying that these people are not people and they don’t have a right to life,” Shepherd continued, referring to unborn fetuses.
Shepherd also called out Georgia businesses by name, including Home Depot, Delta Air Lines, Mercedes Benz, and Walmart.
