On Cecil the Lion and Planned Parenthood Videos

As an animal lover and one who has participated in the conservation of an endangered species it’s hard for me to not be pissed off at the dentist. I understand the excitement of a hunt, how much of a challenge it is to track your game, check your target and wait until you find the perfect moment. But I’ve used cameras not guns for my “kills” and the exhilaration felt was not lessened by capturing the image of the animal instead of its skull.

For those upset about the dentist killed Cecil the lion I can’t help but wonder how they feel about the abortionist making jokes about cracking the skull of a baby. I’m sure many upset with Cecil’s untimely demise aren’t familiar with the video making the rounds of the pro-life community, but I wonder if they would react a similar way, or if as I expect they would justify it as many in the hunting community have done with the lion’s demise. There’s something intrinsically screwed up with trophy hunting, just as I think there’s something intrinsically wrong with people who laugh about crushing the skulls of unborn children and make a profession of it. “Right Livelihood” is part of The Buddha’s Eight-Fold Path, and it’s hard to think of a livelihood further away from Enlightenment than the troglodytes shown in the videos. At least Cecil had more of a chance to defend himself than the kids crunched before birth.

Perhaps Cecil’s killer should have been an abortionist instead of a dentist.

    Agree all around. If the dentist had instead become an abortionist, he’d get an invitation to a cocktail party at the White House.

    PETA and the rest of the loons are outraged over a lion but not about the harvesting of baby parts, intact and otherwise? Cecil would have had a Zimbabwean or even the dentist as dinner if the opportunity arose, but who cares because animals lives matter and humans are nothing more than a specimen collection.

    The whole thing is insane and Zimbabweans think we’re nuts.
