Plants Are People, Too

Or maybe plants are superior to people. Some of the same folks who are champing at the bit to cannibalize humans at embryonic and later stages of life for medical research are all fired up to protect the "dignity" of vegetation.

Click here to read "The Silent Scream of the Asparagus," a commentary by ethicist Wesley Smith on the blooming "plants' rights" movement in Europe. You'll have to read it for yourself. I couldn't make up something like this.

Nanny-state liberalism run amock in western Europe and won't be at all surprised when PETA starts a new sister organization, PETV...People for the Ethical Treatment of Vegetables. It shouldn't really be that big of a shock, since at its core, extreme liberalism would like to see the world's population shrinking back to dark ages levels. Thereby making the remaining population much more easy to control.
