Thought For Today

Glad to see that the people who are in favor of harvesting humans for parts are taking steps to control doing the same with animals.

I think it shows our priorities well as a society and a species that we can demand equal human rights for animals, but can casually dehumanize as "parasites" or "tissue" and kill our own children -- just because their timing is inconvenient.

I thought I was jaded on this matter a long time ago. But it still astounds me that killing the egg or the embryo of an animal protected under the Endangered Species Act is the same as killing an adult.....but taking another human's life because you chose to have unprotected sex is merely a lifestyle choice.
