Celebrities Say Boiling Lobsters Is Inhumane Because They Feel Pain; Abortion Still Legal

A group of British celebrities apparently values the life of bottom-feeding (albeit delicious) crustaceans as more valuable than the lives of those that belong to their own species.

That’s right–several rich and famous Brits are terribly concerned about the plight of future seafood dinners, while the dismemberment of human babies from the womb of their mothers continues as common practice in their country.

In a twist of tragic irony, several British celebrities are supporting a new effort to protect lobsters from a painful death while unborn baby humans suffer excruciating abortion deaths in England and America daily.

The humane treatment of animals is important, but many celebrities ignore how pain-capable human babies also are being brutally killed in abortions.

The Daily Mail reports British comedian Bill Bailey and wildlife presenter Chris Packham put their support behind an effort to prohibit lobsters from being boiled or dismembered alive in the UK.

They joined the organization Crustacean Compassion in sending a letter to British Environment Secretary Michael Gove, urging him to include lobsters as sentient creatures in a new Animal Welfare bill, according to the report.

According to the Daily Mail report:

The letter says decapods, the group of crustaceans including lobsters and crabs, are ‘crammed together in brightly lit tanks’ within restaurants.

It states: ‘There is no economic or culinary reason why decapods cannot be humanely dispatched, yet killing is sometimes preceded by breaking off the legs, head or tail, and is often accomplished by boiling alive.’

The contrast between concern about the way crustaceans are housed and killed for preparation to be eaten in restaurants and the pain, suffering, and indignity that human babies are subject to systematically on a daily basis is astounding, as Life Site News further explains:

Though abortion advocates deny the science of fetal pain at 20 weeks, researchers have fully established fetal pain at 20 weeks or earlier. Dr. Steven Zielinski, an internal medicine physician from Oregon, is one of the leading researchers into it. He first published reports in the 1980s to validate research showing evidence for unborn pain.

At 20 weeks, the unborn child has all the parts in place – the pain receptors, spinal cord, nerve tracts, and thalamus – needed for transmitting and feeling pain. The unborn child responds to touch as early as week 6; and by week 18, pain receptors have appeared throughout the child’s body.

There is also the very obvious fact that lobsters and crabs are our the natural prey of the human predator, while babies are our very own offspring that we are designed to love and nurture in the womb and beyond. Crustaceans are killed to be eaten, while babies are killed out of convenience by their own mothers.

It appears, however, that the irony has escaped these privileged and ignorant British snowflakes…
