An Aggravating Comparison

My wife bought a subscription to Vegetarian Times from the Girl Scouts. In spite of the fact that I constantly clamor for red meat, she insists on cooking vegetarian in a laudable attempt to keep my cholesterol down. Unfortunately VT is contaminated with PETAesque folly. In their classified ads is an add for a bumper sticker reading "Hamburger Stops A Beating Heart". Arrgh. For those like us who are pro-life this bastardized version of "An Abortion Stops A Beating Heart" is appalling. It particularly rankles that although it is supposedly unconstitutional to outlaw abortion, it is perfectly constitutional to outlaw the eating of meat.
