Dogs not Babies

By now most of us have heard of the Michael Vick dog fighting fiasco. In case you have missed it, Atlanta Falcons superstar quarterback Michael Vick has been accused of illegal dog fighting. And one cannot imagine the public outrage generated by this accusation. Everyone from P.E.T.A.(People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) to U.S. Senators have weighed in, demonstrating their outrage of what was done to a bunch of dogs. DOGS.

For example, Josh Goodwin of the Humane Society stated that "Some of the grisly details in these filings shocked even me, and I'm a person who faces this stuff every day," he said. "I was surprised to see that they were killing dogs by hanging them and one dog was killed by slamming it to the ground. Those are extremely violent methods of execution — they're unnecessary and just sick."

What seems to be lost on most of the people demanding justice for the dogs is that Infant Babies are butchered in this country every day, by the thousands.
Radio talk show host, Rush Limbaugh, hit the proverbial nail right on the head when he said this on the air yesterday

"Why are people thinking this way?(outrage about dog fighting, and not a thought about Abortion) Absolutely right. After all of these abortions in this country for all of these years since 1973, -- and I think they probably think they're breaking new ground -- this is a testament. This is a illustration to the devaluation of human life that has occurred throughout our culture."


How can we come to any other conclusion that a great number of people in our society view dogs to be more important, or to have more worth, than human infants, or the elderly, or the terminally ill?

Frankly I'm sickened by this.
