September 20, 2015: Del Rio News-Herald * OPINION * Letter to the Editor * Puppy parts procurement

Letter to the Editor,

Puppy parts procurement

Warning: This letter contains explicit, graphic content. Reader discretion is advised.

Imagine if investigative journalists released an exposé of undercover videos revealing medical researchers discussing the harvesting and selling of organs from aborted puppies and the animal research laboratories showing the dismembered fetal puppy parts in Petri dishes.

Imagine if the videos featured medical researchers discussing the sale of organs harvested from the unborn puppies they aborted, including the detailed and explicit description of where to crush the aborted puppies to preserve their heart, liver, lungs and brain to ensure their usefulness to the buyer.

Imagine if the videos featured medical researchers discussing less crunchy abortion techniques that could be used to preserve valuable puppy organs and the haggling over the price of those puppy parts, all while munching on a fresh, crispy salad with croutons.

Imagine if the videos featured medical researchers joking about how they would like to be able to purchase a Lamborghini from the selling of fetal puppy parts.

Imagine if the videos featured medical researchers joking and getting chatty about the harvesting for sale of organs from unborn shredded and discarded puppies.
Imagine if the videos featured medical researchers as cynical, smirking, cold-blooded organ selling puppy killers.

Imagine the uproar from the public and upheaval on social media about these videos that were unsettling, and not just because the procedure itself was grotesque but because it showed a callousness that was genuinely bothersome and horrifyingly disgusting.

Medical researchers would be called monsters and morally depraved because they would like to swap puppy organs for luxury cars.

There would be an outcry that these federally funded animal research laboratories were deeply corrupt and morally repugnant and that it was time to cut the cord and defund ethically repulsive facilities.

Imagine if radical animal rights activists and mere animal lovers would both be outrageously puppy pro-life and would be so horrified by these videos showing this ghastly and gruesome subject that had been exposed that they would be demanding state and federal investigations.

Imagine if the videos were exposing medical researchers laughing over lunch about liver, lungs and Lamborghinis while bartering over bloody puppy parts and callously sipping blood red wine. 

This would be the height of animal cruelty and the cause of much consternation.

Just imagine!
