California Governor Gavin Newsom has made a statement announcing that he wants the state to stop euthanizing animals. In a press conference, Newsom laid out the details for his budget for the upcoming year, which includes a $50 million one-time general fund allocation to the UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program. The purpose is to develop a grant program for animal shelters in the state, because Newsom wants to see an end to the killing of animals. The killing of human beings in the womb, however, evidently doesn’t bother Newsom as much.
In the press conference, Newsom made the statement, “We want to be a no-kill state.” While the goal of ending animal euthanasia is laudable, without question, the idea of Newsom touting California as a no-kill state while allowing abortion and euthanasia of human beings to go unchecked is beyond offensive. When one sees abortion, one can clearly see the cruelty and destruction:
According to the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, the former research arm of Planned Parenthood, at least 15% of all abortions in the country are committed in California. The number, however, could be even higher than that, as California chooses to opt out of reporting its abortion statistics to the CDC.
