Pro-Lifers Criticize New York Legislature for Banning Cat Declawing After Approving Abortion Up to Birth

New York’s legislature passed a bill banning the declawing of cats Tuesday – four months after the same body approved a bill permitting abortion of a human unborn baby up to the moment of birth.

The irony wasn’t lost on pro-lifers.

“Cats soon could have more protections under New York state law than unborn babies,” Micaiah Bilger of LifeNews.com wrote.

Katie Pavlich, a Fox News contributor and Townhall.com editor, tweeted, “In New York, you may not be able to declaw your cat, but abortion of a baby up until the day of birth is fine.”

Writer Ryan Saavedra of Daily Wire tweeted: “New York: Legalizes abortion up until the moment of birth. Also New York: Don’t you dare declaw your cats!”

New York would become the first state to ban declawing, a procedure that some animal rights activists say is tantamount to amputation. The bill passed the Assembly and Senate. Democrats control both chambers.

“Cat declawing is a horrific, yet often practiced surgery that leads to a lifetime of pain and discomfort for thousands of cats,” Democratic Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal, who sponsored the bill, told National Public Radio. “Today, though, every cat and kitten in New York state lands on its feet as we prepare to make New York the best state for cats to live in the United States.”
