Animal Rights Before Human Rights?

— Posted by Christina (July 20, 2008 at 6:24 pm)

This animal-rights-before-human-rights stuff is old hat for us, but I had to say something about a recent article that I came across about the State of Hawaii becoming enraged at the torturous death of a green sea turtle. Article here.

Of course it’s good and proper for the states to take measures to see that their animals are respected and protected; we’re totally in support of this.

But what we want to know is why the states aren’t also taking measures to protect the smallest and most innocent of their people from the evil of abortion. Take this: it is a federal crime to harm a green sea turtle in Hawaii, but the “right” to kill little babies is protected by law!

Why did they get it inside out and backwards here? What brought on the great tragedy where it is common belief that people do not have near the worth of animals?

Would that every state and every individual would become enraged at the torturous murder of little babies!

God bless.

    I understand the baby seals have more rights than baby humans…

    I’ve never had an abortion, but I have killed hundreds of animals by being a meat-eater.

    If you value life, go vegan.

    It is important to note that in the Bible, God gave us animals to eat (in Genesis, can’t remember specific verse off the top of my head) whereas he said forbade us to kill eachother “Thou shalt not kill”. Now, don’t misunderstand, please, I am not against people being vegetarians. I think it is quite comendable. But it is a totally different issue than abortion or any Human life issue.

    God bless,

    In this blog I wrote, “Of course it’s good and proper for the states to take measures to see to it that their animals are respected and protected; we’re totally in support of this.”
    Now, just in case there is a misunderstanding about this passage, and it is thought that I am against killing animals to eat meat, let me be clear. I was talking about unnecessary animal cruelty, not killing animals for food. I meant that it is good for the states to help protect their animals from torture, mistreatment, and killing that is done just for amusement or for the sake of it.

    Hope no one was confused.

    God bless.

    Miss March, you dont remember the verse because it isn’t there. God did NOT give us animals to eat.
    In the Garden of Eden animals were companions to Adam. He named them and took care of them and he ate from the plants.
    It wasn’t until the sin of mankind that God killed the first animal for clothing. God had people in the old testament use animals as sacrifices. He also told them what portions to eat and what not to eat.
    New Testaments state not to judge a man by what goes in his mouth but by what comes out.
    I am a christian vegan. I don’t believe there will be meet in heaven because Heaven will be how the world was meant to be in the beginning.
    I don’t judge thoes who eat meet but I am strongly against how animals are treated in factory farms and test labs and the circus.
    God loves his creation, remember the donkey he allowed to speak saying, “Why are you beating me?” If God was only thinking of Balam’s demise the donkey would have just said, “Look out that angel is going to kill you.” But God saw fit to allow the donkey to question the man’s abuse tords her.
    Today animal rights are very important and I believe God will reward people greatly in his kingdom for standing up for the weak.
    Also keep in mind, test labs, factory farms they werent existant in the Bible days. So we cant tell people the bible is against animal activists because God put animals here for us to eat.
    Eating animals isnt the only thing animal rights activists are against. It also says in the Bible not to harm your temple, and unless you buy 100% organic you are putting harmful chemicals in your body.
    I am PRO-LIFE. The murdering of babies is, just that, murder. And we should all stand up for unborn children .
    But we shouldn’t disreguard animals. They may not be human babies, but they are important as well. We need to speak up for all life!
    If you spend all your time protesting abortion, great! But we shouldn’t put down thoes who stand up for the rest of God’s creation.
