The headline of a story on page four of today’s edition of the Lexington Herald-Leader read—“Pet adoption, fostering could move state toward no-kill”. This seems like a direction that would be agreeable to almost everyone. Who wouldn’t be in favor of allowing cute little animals to continue living?
Ironically, this liberal newspaper often proclaims the virtues of abortion—insisting that ending the life of a baby in its mother’s womb constitutes health care for women and insinuating that the only people who stand for the pro-life movement are narrow-minded, mean-spirited women haters.
Why can’t we offer the same kindness and mercy to tiny human beings that we do to our furry little friends?
Hopefully, the recent Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade will help move our nation toward a no-kill policy for babies in the womb.
