Social justice warriors are at it again. This time they are upset that new reports show that lobsters may feel pain when they are being boiled. How ironic is it that they feel so much compassion for an animal put on this earth to be eaten, but they do not care about unborn human beings that are being murdered in the womb.
In case you are unaware of how a lobster is cooked: they are boiled alive. For as long as I can remember though, we have been told that they were unaware that they were being cooked and did not even feel the boiling water.
How can liberals fight so hard about the humane treatment of animals but could not care less about basic human rights? Babies are being mutilated and brutally murdered, yet women on the left fight for their right to continue killing them.
However, a crustacean might feel pain while being boiled, and all hell breaks loose.
The Daily Mail reports British comedian Bill Bailey and wildlife presenter Chris Packham put their support behind an effort to prohibit lobsters from being boiled or dismembered alive in the UK.
They joined the organization Crustacean Compassion in sending a letter to British Environment Secretary Michael Gove, urging him to include lobsters as sentient creatures in a new Animal Welfare bill, according to the report.
The letter says decapods, the group of crustaceans including lobsters and crabs, are ‘crammed together in brightly lit tanks’ within restaurants.
It states: ‘There is no economic or culinary reason why decapods cannot be humanely dispatched, yet killing is sometimes preceded by breaking off the legs, head or tail, and is often accomplished by boiling alive.’
Switzerland already banned boiling lobsters after “new scientific evidence” surfaced showing that they feel pain.
Tens of thousands of unborn babies are aborted at 20 weeks or later in these countries every year, yet there is no strong effort by celebrities to protect children. On Monday, the U.S. Senate failed to pass a bill to prohibit abortions on unborn babies after 20 weeks.
Though abortion advocates deny the science of fetal pain at 20 weeks, researchers have fully established fetal pain at 20 weeks or earlier. Dr. Steven Zielinski, an internal medicine physician from Oregon, is one of the leading researchers into it. He first published reports in the 1980s to validate research showing evidence for unborn pain.
Many states, such as Ohio and Georgia, have begun passing bills that ban abortion after a heartbeat is detected, which can be as early as five to six weeks. This is a huge step in the right direction for human rights.
