Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
We have to wonder what it is about kittens, adorable as they are, that tweaked the hearts of sanctimonious democrats in a way live babies can't seem to do. I recently had the experience of having a 2 1/2month premie baby born into my family. Three tiny pounds of adorable life. Hooked up to tubes and monitors for the last 2 1/2 months revealed a certain truth: these babies can continue to live outside the mothers womb. Life. That innocent baby is now an adorable healthy full-weight person who laughs and hugs and cries like no kitten can do.
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 KITTEN Act will protect these innocent animals from being needlessly euthanized in government testing,” Merkley told reporters, “and make sure that they can be adopted by loving families instead.” Does he even hear himself? They should be treated and adopted? That’s exactly what Americans have requested for living, breathing babies. Democrats said no. Killing a child is a “personal decision,” they said, and Congress shouldn’t get in the way. What a comfort for abortion survivors like Melissa Ohden to know that, given the choice, Democrats would save a stray cat over her.
“The fact that we need a piece of legislation to tell the federal government to stop killing kittens is ridiculous on its face,” Congressman Brian Mast (R-Fla.) argued. But “ridiculous” doesn’t begin to describe a party that tells America to back away from the tables of crying newborns while it rushes to the rescue of kittens instead. I suppose we should also tell firefighters when they run into burning houses to look for the pets first? After all, on the Democrats’ sliding scale of “wantedness,” shouldn’t we find out how loved someone is before we decide if they’re worth saving?
It makes quite obvious that the Left does not actually give a damn about life itself. It also points out the stupidity of many of their "politicos".
I will never understand how Democrats fight so hard to make sure mass murderers don’t get the death penalty yet do absolutely nothing to protect the lives of innocent newborn children
