The killing of a lion, named Cecil, has spawned widespread outrage. Curiously, those who are protesting the loudest seem to have no problem with a doctor who kills little Cecilia in her mother’s womb.
Mia Farrow took to Twitter to register her disgust. In 2002, she spoke at a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood, and in 2008 she addressed another pro-abortion crowd at a Personal PAC awards event.
Jimmy Kimmel almost choked describing his angst over the lion. In 2012, he had to be persuaded by reporter Jake Tapper not to tell a crude abortion joke at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner.
Former Spice Girl star Geri Halliwell was highly judgmental over Cecil’s death, but when asked at a news conference about abortion, she replied, “I believe in pro-choice and non-judgment.”
Ricky Gervais exploded over the death of Cecil, but when asked about abortion and euthanasia, he said last year, “I’m pro-choice in everything.”
Newsday and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette are both solidly in the pro-abortion camp, and they railed in an editorial today against Cecil’s death.
The head of PETA, Ingrid Newkirk, argued that the dentist who killed the lion should be “hanged.” She has never raised an objection to abortion in her entire life, and presides over an organization that kills 95 percent of the pets in its care.
The Animal Rights Coalition is furious over Cecil’s fate. It has never protested killing babies, but it is against killing flies. “When mosquitoes land on you,” it says, “instead of slapping and killing them, simply blow on them and they’ll fly away.”

I wish to God I could get rid of these people that simply.
