'Today' Blubbers for Baby Seals

June 12th, 2006 8:22 AM

Here's a strategy for pro-life activists: start talking up the fact that humans share 90% [or whatever the number is] of their DNA with seals. It might win you more sympathy from the MSM. For while the liberal media love to celebrate 'a woman's right to choose', they go all weepy at the prospect of baby seals biting the dust, er, ice.

The Today show was at it again this morning with a segment on the baby seal harvest in Canada, complete with the predictable footage of those cuddly baby seals at the mercy of heartless hunters. 'Today' even warned us that "what you are about to see may be disturbing to some people."

An animal rights activist was shown claiming that the killing of baby seals was 'inhumane.' Inhumane? Would the same folks so concerned about killing baby seals be willing to extend the same legal protection to unborn . . . humans?
