The Monday, May 21, issue of The Sedalia Democrat carried a lengthy article "Animal Rights Put Man At Risk." My interest was drawn by the animal "rights" terrorist activities against the Hunting Life Sciences, a group that is researching AIDS. My interest was further piqued by the comment by (PETA) People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The latter stated that "Arson, property destruction, burglary, and theft are ‘acceptable crimes’ when used for the animals cause."
May 14, 2001 article in WorldNet Daily, an online journal reports:
"The U.S. government, according to a written statement by the National Institutes of Health, or NIH, funded the transplantation of human fetal tissue taken from abortions performed in the 20th week of pregnancy into a laboratory mouse that is used in AIDS research." (http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=22795)
We might extrapolate that it is nobler to save the animals used in AIDS research than to save pre-borns from use in AIDS research.
It is known that the National Institute of Health is taxpayer funded. In the tests done with the mice and pre-borns, the mother’s who aborted, did not give consent for their children after the abortion to be used in animal experiments. Taxpayers, whether willingly or unwillingly, are living under government that has been doing the most ghastly things in the name of our health and best interests.
If pro-life supporters were so passionate, publicly, as PETA and SHAC in the name of the unborn, we would be smeared unmercifully. Planned Parenthood would have a field day worldwide.
This is a grim reminder that our whole society is in the grip of a terrible moral crisis.
