Due to the endangerment of the bald eagle, a bald eagle egg is more valuable than a human fetus and, therefore, is more worthy of federal protection.
It's not even a rational comparison.
US law recognizes the value of a child in utero, if they are injured or killed during a crime. The law defines "child in utero" as a member of the species Homosapiens, at any stage of development. Unborn children are only protected as crime victims.
@dark horse, that tattoo is awesome. I want to get one similar to it
Seems like it. There is no value, to human life for Liberals that are for genocide.
I agree that this is a true statement. It is the law. I don't agree that it should be true. It's ridiculous.
Eh, Humans are assholes, when was the last time an eagle sought you out just to crap on you ?
There's a lot of people and not a lot of them. We need to focus on the ones that need help surviving.
The end has got to be near. I can't even stand to read the comments. What a sick world we live in where a baby is thought of less than an animal.
Only a liberal would value an animal's life over a human's life. Proof that liberalism is a mental disorder.
As well as 17% of Republicans voting so far, 20% of independents and 30% of Libertarians.
Meh. Eagles are purer than people. They're closer to God.
Apples and oranges.
Both fruit, both round, both grow on trees, etc.
Ok then, apples and parsnips.
If humans were close to extinction, I would disagree but they aren't. A human fetus is not a person.
But it matters more than a bald eagle.
The question makes the issue seem simplistic but it's not.
Human life in any form is more valuable than animal life.
Totally agree, blossoming. It's problematic how many people want to simplify it.
You should see a doctor about that vomiting. You might have Ebola.
It's amazing what we decide to care about.
Oh Rob I want to tell you something about food. Will you be around or will this get lost. It really is about food lol
I'll be around, you could always message me.
I can't pm. I can't initiate. No secret. It's about food. Too lazy to get it now.
You know how to find me.
It's far more complex than this, but yes, I agree.
How is it more complex?
Well almost every issue of significance is more complex than 300 characters, but especially abortion, no? Those who want to reduce it to something that fits on a bumper sticker are those who don't want to discuss it.
We are not discussing abortion. We are comparing the value of a fetus vs an egg. I don't see how it can be complicated to explain why the egg is more valuable.
If you don't see the complexity, that's your loss. What a unlovely way to be in the world.
I'm not sure the bald eagle is all that endangered anymore, we sure have a lot of them around here. But still, probably so. There is no shortage of humans.
Totally disagree. No animal is in any way near the value of a human being at any stage of development.
OMG they must be amoral cannibalistic vampires because they don't agree with you amirite????
No Kermie, because they devalue human life and place the life of a bird or turtle above a human being.
Where are the "its only a clump of cells" comments? Aren't eagles also only a clump of cells? Don't you liberals have any consistent views?
If you think that's the entirety of the pro-choice opinion you're already not willing to listen. So carry on.
Pretty sure that in a real world scenario, near enough to all would save the crying baby before the falling egg.
Depends on the eventual kid. And the eagle maybe. People are more important than animals as decided by people.
Unbelievable isn't it.
Don't forget the turtle eggs!! It's illegal to destroy that clump of cells.
It's too early for this lol.
Good morning. :P
Morning! What's good morning music? Like easy on the ears :-)
Ok both of those make me wanna stay in bed!! Very nice though :-)
That's the point.
Lol! Some days yes, not so much when I need to get up!
@knetzere now you're talkin!!!
