The latest defense authorization bill approved by the Senate includes repeal of military laws forbidding sodomy and bestiality.
Jay Carney dismissed questions on this from a reporter during his daily press briefing, merely saying, “Let’s get on to something more serious”.
This prompted a letter from PETA’s Director of Communications, Colleen O’Brien. It points out that their office has been deluged with calls from people who are upset that bestiality is now permitted in the military.
From the letter: “As we outlined in the attached letter sent yesterday to the secretary of defense, animal abuse does not affect animals only—it is also a matter of public safety, as people who abuse animals very often go on to abuse human beings.”
One of the rare bits of common sense coming from the People for Ethical Treatment of Animals is going to fall on deaf ears, as the Obama Administration would not be sympathetic to these kinds of problems.
In fact, the FDA is again seeking to facilitate the sexual abuse of humans by putting the morning after pill, Plan B One-Step out on store shelves with the condoms.
Ella, the new morning after pill which is chemically analogous to mifepristone (RU-486), is now distributed through an on-line prescribing and dispensing process. Though it is more cumbersome, it allows non-patients and men to have access to the drug and accumulate doses for abortions.
By this means, the FDA has facilitated the availability of home abortions outside the supervision of medical personnel. These processes are frequently completed at hospitals where the resultant, life-threatening infections are treated.
Sorry, PETA, this is one administration which is not concerned about the abuse of animals, (humans included).
