Four senators vowed to protect kittens after the KITTEN Act of2019 was introduced.
Senators Tom Udall (D-NM), Gary Peters (D-MI), Cory Booker (D-NJ), and Jeff Merkley (D-OR) co-sponsored the KITTEN Act which was introduced on March 7.
Before the introduction of the Kitten Act, the Born Alive Abortions Survivors Protection Act came up for a vote on February 25. It needed 60 votes for cloture to proceed. But with 44 nays and 53 years, it failed. Udall, Peters, Booker and Merkley voted against the closure.
The FREE Beacon quoted Lauren Fine, a spokesperson for Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), saying: “There is nothing more valuable than human life, and as a society we must defend it at every stage.
“It’s unfathomable that Democrats can find time to defend the lives of kittens, but at the same time are vehemently opposed to even the consideration of legislation designed to protect infants born alive during an abortion from being killed.”
Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) also said: “I find it appalling that Democrats are so out of touch that they refuse to stand up for defenseless babies but are more than eager to defend animals.”
The Free Beacon quoted a GOP aide in the Senate saying: “When Democrats want to talk about ending ‘taxpayer-funded kitten slaughter,’ they say it’s just common sense. When millions of pro-life Americans want to end taxpayer subsidies to the nation’s largest abortion business, Democrats rush to call it an extremist agenda.”
Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL), who cosponsored the KITTEN Act, said: “The details of these kitten experiments keep getting worse and they need to end now. The fact that the USDA has been rounding up pets and other innocent dogs and cats in foreign countries —including at Chinese meat markets condemned by Congress — killing them and feeding them to lab cats back here in the States is simply disgusting and unjustifiable.”
He also added: “The fact that we need a piece of legislation to tell the federal government to stop killing kittens is ridiculous on its face. But what’s even worse is, when you hear the details that the government is actually breeding hundreds of these cats just to intentionally feed them parasite-ridden raw meat and then kill them even though they’re perfectly healthy.”
