On countering cruelty to animals vs. cruelty to the unborn

I favour legislation to protect animals from cruelty. I don't believe animals have rights, but I do think we have a duty not to be cruel to them.

I think most people buy that argument.

Now why can't we apply the same standard to the unborn? It would certainly be a start? It's amazing how some leftists will bleed for a slaughtered animal, but will be completely indifferent to a late-term abortion.
