“Dogs are still used in scientific research. I live near a facility where lots of dogs go in but don’t come out. A society that on one hand does that but on the other hand treats dogs as stand-ins for children and husbands is suffering from schizophrenia.”
Agreed. Same as a society that on the one hand, acknowledges that unborn children can learn things, and encourages pregnant women to talk to their unborn children, play them music, etc., but then on the other hand, permits them to kill them if they don’t want them.
