With all of the Mike Vick saga going on lately I have talked to a few people lately that say if abortions are legal (especially late term) then who is to say you can't put dogs down. Now regardless of how I feel about the actual actions I do tend to agree slightly with that point. Any opinions?

I suppose the counter argument would be that abortion will happen regardless of it's legality, and legalisation means regulation...Could you make that argument for putting down dogs? I don't think so, but someone feel free to, haven't thought about it much.

This goes FAR beyond "putting dogs down"... which can be done legally depending on local laws.

Also, there is a difference (as always) between a being inside your own body, and one outside of your body wholly independent of you in that sense.

Also... Vick (allegedly) tortured these animals... not just "put them down". To use the logic being presented here... abusing your children is illegal... so is abusing animals.

Dogs aren't inside a vagina.

By that logic, i could make an argument for walking around the mall scrambling the brains of housewives with a coathanger.

i can't believe i'm responding to this but...

your comparing an abortion, which in most cases are performed within the first 20 weeks of pregnacy to someone taking a couple of year old dog and bashing it's head against the concrete, drowing it in water or hanging.

i don't think there's a comparison

case closed.

Are we talking about dog trainers putting fighting dogs down because they can't fight, or people putting down fighting dogs because they are trained to fight?

Either way, I certainly don't agree with that analogy. They are done for totally different reasons.

i don't know what the fuck your talking about but do you have any idea what this Vick case is about?

if not....please go read about it first before posting.

I know that he fought dogs...

I don't know if the question is talking about putting fighting dogs down, or Vick simply killing animals because he made them fight and they got hurt, and people are calling that "putting them down", like Crunk said.

there's a HUGE difference between putting dogs down and what Michael Vick did

I agree. Which is why I assumed when people said putting down, they're talking about fighting dogs in general. When fox hunting was banned here, there was a debate about hunting dogs being put down, thought this might have happened with fighting dogs because of this Vick thing.
