If Only Babies Were Puppies (haiku)


here i am, hold me
up to the light to see if
my heart is beating


I wrote the haiku after watching the video of Jill Stanek’s testimony.

We hear a lot about animal cruelty. It is condemned, rightfully so.

But how come the MSM is silent about the horrific things done to newborn humans?
