California's governor is calling for spending state funds to preserve life – not that of humans, but of animals.
California, one of several state bastions for extremely liberal thinking, has a Constitution that presumes human life is more valuable than animal life. Brian Johnston of the California Pro-Life Council explains to OneNewsNow that Governor Gavin Newsom is asking the state legislature to approve funds to preserve life.
"Our governor has declared he wants California [to be] a no-kill state," Johnston begins, "… but he's not talking about babies in the womb. A baby in the womb can be killed under California law at any time, for any reason, or no reason in particular just because it's chosen to be killed."
Also in California it's legal to hand lethal pills to terminally ill people and the elderly so they can commit suicide. So it's clear that Newsom is not talking about preserving the lives of humans.
"No, he wants to not kill animals," Johnston continues. "[He is arguing that] animals should be protected as if they were human beings – but oddly [that] human beings should no longer be protected under the law that they might have their lives taken from them by someone intentionally."
Newsom wants a halt to euthanizing animals at shelters and is calling for a one-time, $50 million allocation for grants to help local communities preserve the lives of "adoptable" and "treatable" dogs and cats in their care.
