Anyway, I was listening to a segment on Morning Edition about dogfighting and how 39 representives voted against a bill that would ban the interstate trafficking of fighting dogs and roosters (the bill was signed into law). Congressman Steve King from Iowa says that he voted against the vote because its wrong for the federal government to criminalize pitbull trafficking while allowing legal abortion. he goes on to say,
"My vote says that human life needs to be elevated and stay above animal
life. I think it devalues all life when you set the life of
an animal up above from a human?
What do you think of that logic?
