I took notice of the "chopping at the bit" but let it pass. Do you cringe
equally for humans who are abused and fetus' that are aborted? I like
animals too and would never intentionally abuse them, but it seems people
have far less compassion for fellow human beings than they do for
animals. Should we treat animals "humanely?" Yes.

My two cents worth.
