We certainly wouldn't want to allow any of our animal citizens to feel unnecessary pain.
Of course, aborted human babies feel excruciating pain and don't have any say in the matter when they are ripped into pieces in their mothers' wombs, but unborn human babies have far less rights than animals in the Obamanation.
Yes. Let’s vote to ban surgical abortion procedures... then we can ‘talk’ about banning the cropping of dogs’ ears and the docking of their tails. Sounds completely reasonable to me!
