Do you have any idea how many rats, rabbits, dogs, cats, etc that pharma companies kill per year for the drugs you use?

They are not hear for sick twisted people to experiment on. I would have expected more action from liberals, yet there's not much. And this is one of the few issues I would be considered "liberal" on.. You know that pet dog you have? well, if you have a beagle, they are used by pharma companies to test ocular medicine, then are killed, and eyes removed to test effectiveness of the drug.

Yet you think killing your own children is more important.

I think a love for animals is not a political thing. I am the antiliberal if there ever was one and care more about animals than I do about almost any adult human.

I'd rather a beagle die than my mom from cancer. That's just me. If you want your mom to die from cancer and save a beagle to do it, more power to you.

Incidently, I possess canine teeth. They're there for the ripping and tearing of flesh.

Where would you ever get the idea that progressive ppl don't care about the treatment of animals? That could not be further from the truth. However, if Conservatives would stop abusing human beings for a change, perhaps we could devote more of our energies to saving the animals.

Why don't you supply something factual proving liberals don't care about animals? And stop this 'killing children' BS, or would that once again require something too factual?

Of course PETA is dominated by right wing Republicans.
