Re: “Charleston Animal Society thinks outside the box to create a no-kill community

P.S. Couldn't help but notice you used the word "viable" with regards to the baby being "viable" at 30 weeks. can you enlighten me to what you mean by that?

Re: “Charleston Animal Society thinks outside the box to create a no-kill community

Here's the problem...in reality the issue is the argument of when life begins. If you don't believe life begins until 30 weeks...or until after the baby is born...then clearly you won't have an urgency to stop abortions...and you clearly won't see the correlation to what the CAS is trying to do and what we abortion abolitionists are trying to do. Science backups up the idea that life begins at conception...period. so I absolutely believe my statement is relevant to this article...the CAS is taking measures to try and end the senseless killing of animals and the city rejoices...while the same city decries the removal of a woman's choice to end the life of her unwanted and unborn child. it's called hypocrisy...that is what we're getting at. if you can't see that, then the level of deception that you have fallen to is a dark one. and it is heart breaking that people can't see this.

Styrene - Absolutely abortion evokes strong feelings. I was merely trying to call attention to the reversed priorities in this city (this nation as well). That said, I will have to disagree with you on laboring too much on the murder of innocent unborn babies versus providing and protecting those already born. I believe both are important and deserve attention. However...at the rate that we're murdering babies (millions a year)...what children will be left on this earth to protect?

Re: “Charleston Animal Society thinks outside the box to create a no-kill community

Styrene - I brought up the topic because I just find it interesting that we have a community entity fighting for the survival of animals and it is being praised and lauded as a good measure (which is fine...I have no issue with that). Yet we have 3,000+ babies murdered every year and the only time you hear about it is when innocent people get injured or harassed at the abortuary. What's heart breaking is that you would argue that killing the unborn child is some how saving them from a possibility of danger. And maybe I misunderstood that, but that's how it comes across to me. I'm just trying to call attention to the lack of priority in our city with regards to life. I'm all for animals rights to life...but what of the 3,000+ a year who have a right to life too??

Re: “Charleston Animal Society thinks outside the box to create a no-kill community

Are we seriously, as a society, arguing in favor of animals above unborn babies? Are we seriously arguing that 3,000+ murders of unborn babies every year in Charleston, SC in an abortuary in West Ashley do not matter as much as the animals in the Charleston Animal Shelter? Seriously? My heart breaks at the thought of how far we've fallen as a society.
