A crime against humanity refers to a crime so egregious, that the entire fabric of human society repulses at its commission. Genocide is a crime against humanity, meaning that Hitler, Stalin and Mao Zedong can all be said to have committed crimes against humanity. The term is often associated, as well, with social oppression and killing brought about by tyrannical communist regimes.

Pro-life advocates consider the practice of abortion, which ends millions of lives every year, to be an accumulated crime against humanity.
