Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA), a famously pro-abortion member of
Congress with a 100% rating from NARAL Pro-Choice America, recently introduced
a bill to outlaw glue traps designed to eliminate
rodents…because he considers them to be “cruel” and “inhumane.” The glue
traps, that is.
Lieu took to social media to lobby for the criminalization of glue
traps, the use of which he deems to be “ruthless:”
traps are among the cruelest ways to eliminate rodents. They're inhumane and
can be dangerous to humans and their pets. Pleased to introduce a bill today to
place a national ban on glue traps.
Last year, West Hollywood,
not surprisingly a city in Lieu’s home state, became the first city in the
country to ban glue traps, due to their purported cruelty to rats. Speaking
of rats, Congressman Adam Schiff, also a Representative from California, is an
original cosponsor of Lieu’s bill. (Takes one to know one, I guess.
Probably feels a certain kinship.)
Lieu also stated: “As a proud member of the
Animal Protection Caucus, I’m pleased to introduce this bill to stop the
needless suffering of these animals.” But he disdains pro-life folks and the
pro-life movement. Go figure. (No word on if Lieu is simultaneously sponsoring
a bill to legalize unfettered abortion up to the moment of birth.)
PETA Executive Vice
President Tracy Reiman was obviously deeply moved by the pro-rodent bill,
stating: “PETA thanks Rep. Ted Lieu for his compassion and leadership
in introducing the Glue Trap Prohibition Act of 2024.” Compassion!
Sara Amundson, president
of the Humane Society Legislative Fund, was similarly thrilled with Lieu’s
humanity, saying, “Glue traps are cruel, inhumane, and outdated methods of
removing rodents from homes and businesses.”
But syringes, forceps, curettes, vacuums, and speculums are not cruel and
inhumane ways of removing human babies from a mother’s uterus? Monstrous.
Glue traps are nowhere
needed more than in Washington, D.C., which is overrun by rats…such as
Lieu and Schiff.
