Dems push to save cats after abandoning babies to death

Democrats fight for kittens’ right to life after voting to kill born-alive babies

March 14, 2019 (Family Research Council) — What do cats have that newborn babies don’t? Democrats’ support. In one of the sickest ironies no one is talking about, Senate liberals picked this moment — 17 days after they voted to kill America’s perfectly healthy infants — to fight for the humane treatment of kittens. Maybe the DNC’s strategists are out to lunch, or maybe the Left really is this shameless, but I can’t wait to see some of these politicians standing on debate platforms next year telling the American people that when it comes to protecting living things: We chose cats over kids.

For sponsors like Senator Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), the optics are nauseating. Here he is, arguing that America “must stop killing kittens,” when, three weeks ago, he stood in the U.S. Capitol and agreed with 43 Democrats that human beings should be put down. “The USDA’s decision to slaughter kittens after they are used in research is an archaic practice and horrific treatment, and we need to end it,” Merkley said with a passion that he and his colleagues couldn’t muster for a generation of perfectly healthy newborns. His Kittens in Traumatic Testing Ends Now — or KITTEN — Act wouldn’t stop the research, but it would keep the animals from being destroyed.

    The Dark One has its political party, no?

    Somebody should embark on a US-wide study of all children born alive during abortions so as to justify keeping them alive on the ground that it would be infeline to kill them after gathering data from them.

    It’s a mad world.

    The only thing that might restore less hypocrisy to their position is that sadly, today’s married folks are so often rejecting having children in favor of pets, (which they call their children,)
    Pets, after all, don’t require the sacrifice that children do and are much cheaper to keep raise.
