Insult has yet again been added to injury when it comes to society’s acknowledgement of the personhood of unborn children now that an ape with “legal personhood” finds its new home in America.
A 33-year-old orangutan named “Sandra” who was granted legal personhood in its home country of Argentina has now found a home at Florida’s Center for Great Apes.
According to NBC News, Patti Ragan, director of the center, says Sandra is “very sweet and inquisitive” and adjusting well to her new home.
“She was shy when she first arrived, but once she saw the swings, toys, and grassy areas in her new home, she went out to explore,” Ragan said. “She has met her caregivers here and is adjusting well to the new climate, environment, and the other great apes at the Center. This is the first time in over a decade that Sandra has had the opportunity to meet other orangutans, and she will meet them when she chooses. It is a new freedom for her, and one we are grateful to provide.”
Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of children who could have grown up to be “very sweet and inquisitive” will be poisoned or dismembered this year before ever seeing the light of day.
Argentinian Judge Elena Liberatori’s landmark ruling declared back in 2015 that Sandra is legally not an animal, but a non-human person. As such, the orangutan has been deemed entitled to certain legal rights enjoyed by people, as well as better living conditions than she was afforded in her former home.
“With that ruling I wanted to tell society something new, that animals are sentient beings and that the first right they have is our obligation to respect them,” Liberatori said at the time according to NBC.
While animals are creatures of God, it is utterly reprehensible that Western society has embraced a form of neo-paganism that sees them as our equals. In the case of unborn children unwanted by their mothers, our culture even sees beasts as superior to humans.
As we reported over the summer, leftist legislators in New York moved to ban the declawing of cats during the very same legislative session in which they passed a bill to allow abortion up until birth.
Our politics and culture have made it perfectly clear: America is a child-sacrificing pagan society.
The birthright that belongs to these precious little bearers of the image of God has been stolen from them and given to animals. Lord, help us put an end to this wickedness!!
