Of dogs and unborn babies

I'm still not quite 100%, but I thought I'd post this from The Baptist:

Speaking of “clarion calls” and “standing up for what is right” where are all these people when an innocent unborn child’s life is taken by abortion. While fighting two dogs where at least the animals have a chance at survival draws vast criticism, the killing of helpless babies giving them no chance of survival finds support. How can it be that our society roars over the horror of one and supports the other?

While the two certainly are not identical situations parallels do exist. A woman who kills an unborn child is said to have the right to choose. Society argues that her body is her property and no one can tell her what to do with her property. Michael Vick also has the right to choose. These dogs are his property as he is the owner. Can anyone tell him what to do with his property? Apparently so as our society screams, “NO!” Michael Vick you cannot harm dogs in this nature. They do not deserve this cruelty. Yet our society does not give a second look to an abortion clinic where thousands of undeserving, innocent lives cease to exist.
