What’s wrong here?

On Thanksgiving, I read about a new law passed that will apply to all 5O states and the 16 U.S. territories. The law basically says that causing pain or serious bodily injury to any living nonhuman mammals, birds, reptiles or amphibians is a crime and could result in a fine and up to seven years’ imprisonment.

I’m not saying this is a bad law. Animal cruelty is a terrible thing. But how is it we can get legal protection for living nonhuman beings and not get the same protection for living pre-born human beings who suffer great pain before dying through abortion?

This is especially true in late stage abortions when the suffering becomes greatest. Can anyone tell me that being torn to pieces isn’t a painful death? The fact is, that is what happens.

Shouldn’t pre-born human beings enjoy the same legal protection as nonhuman beings?
