Jerry Coyne argues, astonishingly, that the vulnerability of handicapped children justifies killing them.
The purported goal here is to prevent pet stores from obtaining their dogs from puppy mills and selling these abused animals to an unwary public. I’m not buying.
I’m confident Coyne will be outraged by this proposal — as he should be. However, this is exactly how we treat dogs.
They are yet another evolutionary icon that Jonathan Wells, perhaps in his next book, could handily leash and take for a walk.
It’s all in the spin, isn’t it? Chirping chipmunks – sorry, prairie dogs – knock down the “the last bastion encircling human exceptionalism.”
