Yes, it’s a thing. Yes, animal lovers are very upset when they find out. Yes, there’s a glaring disconnect when people are disturbed by puppy abortion, but are okay with aborting human beings.
In a society where many are becoming vegetarian or vegan because of animal rights, where is the outrage against the slaughter of humans that is happening daily?
Laura Klassen, Director of CHOICE42 and the #JustSaying series actor says that the concept of puppy abortion has been on her mind for a while now.
I’m constantly challenged by animal rights supporters asking if because I value human life in the womb, am I also vegan? First of all, no; there’s a big difference between a pre-born human and a chicken or a cow. I like to ask them how they feel about kitten or puppy abortions. Guess what? At first they can’t believe it because it’s so ‘cruel’ and heartless’, and then they’re taken aback.
We wanted to make this video to get people to think. To show the double standard. If you get all riled up over seal clubbing, or whales being killed, why does that concern not carry over to your fellow human beings who are being brutally killed in abortion?
People need to realize this huge cognitive disconnect when it comes to how we treat humans in the womb.
Rebecca Kiessling of Save the 1 says that when doing presentations at universities and colleges, students often challenge her anti-abortion stance by asking her how she feels about animal rights.
While at Tulane in New Orleans, there were two female students sitting together, whispering and eye rolling throughout my speech. The first one asked a question, clearly demonstrating her views for abortion rights. Then her friend put her hand up and asked me how I feel about the sanctity of ALL life. I asked her to be more specific. Then she asked if I eat meat. The room filled with laughter and groans. Instead of moving on to someone else, I responded,
‘Let me ask you this: How do you feel about puppy abortions?’
She stuttered, ‘Th-they do that?’
‘Oh yeah,’ I replied. ‘I'll never forget the first time I heard about puppy abortion. A woman had her unique looking dog outside of a Subway, so I asked what breed of dog it was, but she said she didn't know because she got her at a shelter. Then she proceeded to explain that when she took her to the vet, it was discovered that the dog was pregnant, but it was no big deal and that the vet would just do a puppy abortion. I was horrified. I couldn't believe they did that!’
I asked the student, ‘So how do you feel about that? How do you feel about puppy abortions?’
Her face was pale. ‘I don't know how I feel about puppy abortions. I don't know how I feel about abortion.’
Her friend's jaw dropped wide as she looked at her friend like this was a great betrayal that she just said that.
