This would truly be a wonderful world if the welfare of children was regarded as highly as the rights of animals. Don't get me wrong - there is no excuse for abusing an animal and I do believe there is a special place in hell for those who are unrepentant about cruelty their towards cats and dogs. But doesn't it strike you as ironic that, every day, children wind up in the garbage like so much medical waste and there is no public outcry? How many teenage mothers in denial about their pregnancies have attempted to drown their newborns in the toilet? Have you ever seen an outcry of the magnitude the little kitten in London garnered? And do you see something wrong with that picture?
Care of the planet and respect toward animals is a good thing. But if it's not accompanied by a similar concern for human life, it's all for naught.
