This goes beyond appalling, cruel and hypocritical: viciously and cruelly beheading a innocent creature while making the argument to protect life?
Sorry, he is a total and unredeemable asshole.
Debate continues to rage between pro-life and pro-choice activists about when life begins and must be protected.
One topic that hasn’t been considered? The similarities between abortion and chicken slaughter. Well, now, thanks to one Missouri legislator, that is up for discussion.
In what was no doubt the most bizarre moment of last week, anti-abortion GOP state legislator Mike Moon prepared for the new “nothing but abortion” special session of the Missouri legislature by killing a chicken — and posting the video on Youtube.
“When the governor called for the second special session this year, I was right in the middle of my summer job.
But like any good career politician, when I get the call (breaks to behead chicken), I’m going back to work,” Rep. Moon said on his video, according to the Missouri Times.
”God gave us man dominion over life. He allows us to raise animals properly and care for them and then process them for food so we can sustain life. And that’s what I’m doing here with this chicken. So we’ve been called back to this special session for the primary purpose of supporting life, protecting the unborn specifically. I think we need to get to the heart of the matter here (pulls out chicken’s heart). So today, I’m filing a bill that will lead to the stopping of abortion in the state of Missouri and I hope you’ll support it.”
Moon later told reporters that he wasn’t really trying to compare butchering a chicken to abortion, despite the video’s message.
