“March For Life” Ignores Innocent Lives
On Friday, January 22nd, pro-life activists descended by the thousands on Washington D.C. for their annual Block-Up-Traffic Festival, or as they’ve been known to call it, the “March For Life.” College students, clergy members, “family feminists,” and schoolchildren who are possibly just pumped for the day off from class hold a massive protest in front of Congress every year to mourn the passing of Roe Vs. Wade, the monumental Supreme Court Case that legalized a woman’s right to safe abortion.
While the marchers object to the 3,000 abortions performed in the United States per day, they seem to pay no mind to the 28 million farmed animals (not including marine life) that the animal agriculture industry slaughters within a twenty-four hour period.
While animal activists groups have spent decades exposing the nasty underbelly of animal exploitation in evidence-based videos and factual information, the pro-life lobby of the United States is infamous for manufacturing controversy and making up stories about selling baby parts. “Live Action News” wrote their own commentary last year condemning vegans who are pro-choice. They managed to look over the fact that animal slaughter is an act of violence towards a living, breathing, being, while abortion is, you know, the removal of a non-sentient cell cluster.
The attention turned towards safe, legal abortion and the ignorance in regards to animal rights atrocities shines quite a light on the true intention of the entire pro-life movement. At best, activists are mislead, and at their worst, aren’t concerned about innocent lives at all, but plenty interested in controlling the actions of women everywhere.
