Just when you think things couldn't get any more wacko, this comes along:
From the New Zealand Herald:
Meet the Whanganui. You might call it a river, but in the eyes of the law, it has the standings of a person.
In a landmark case for the Rights of Nature, officials in New Zealand recently granted the Whanganui, the nation’s third-longest river, with legal personhood “in the same way a company is, which will give it rights and interests”. The decision follows a long court battle for the river’s personhood initiated by the Whanganui River iwi, an indigenous community with strong cultural ties to the waterway. Under the settlement, the river is regarded as a protected entity, under an arrangement in which representatives from both the iwi and the national government will serve as legal custodians towards the Whanganui’s best interests.
Let's see now, in 1983 New Zealand's parliament refused to pass the Status of the Unborn Child Bill that would overturn a court ruling saying that embryos & fetuses had no legal status in New Zealand, but now the same courts say that a river does? Also, though theoretically, there are some limits on abortion, the mental health exception virtually eliminates that. Thus, unlike for the Whanganui, everything in New Zealand law is such that it operates against the best interests of every preborn human in the country.
Just so you understand, in New Zealand, this is a person:
Yet this isn't:
Of course things aren't much different in the USA. Here, an unborn eagle is protected by law, yet an preborn human is not. If you destroy an unhatched eagle you face a fine & imprisonment. But if you are an abortionist, you are not only protected if you kill the baby, in most places you don't even have to meet the basic regulations or standards that any real health clinic does. & if you are Planned Parenthood, you get plenty of our tax dollars to do so. We worship nature as a god, we treat humans as disposable. All I can add is even though we don't deserve it:
GOD HAVE MERCY ON US ALL!!!!
