Urge The Alaska Legislature To Protect Pets and Pass A Spay and Neuter Law!

Approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year, including 3.9 million dogs and 3.4 million cats. Of these, 2.7 million animals are euthanized, 1.2 million of which are dogs and 1.4 million are cats. 31% of dogs and 41% of cats that enter shelters are euthanized. Only 10% of the animals received by shelters have been spayed or neutered.Despite these sobering statistics, 19 states do not have laws requiring pounds, animal shelters, or pet animal rescues to sterilize cats and dogs before adopting them out to new guardians. This lack of protection only exacerbates the pet overpopulation problem, forcing the offspring of adopted animals to face abandonment and potential euthanasia.Urge the Alaska legislature to pass spay and neuter legislation that protects pets and requires adopting agencies to spay and neuter their animals. Help save lives today!

Oooooo you opening up a can of worms here (guess I not the only one who does such).

I had to have one of my cats put down once (euthanasia basically, it actually said that word on the form I had to sign). It was a very hard thing to do, very. I am not sure if I could personally make that decision for a human - could you?

I very much care that humans and animals do not suffer though - but I am not sure if euthanasia is the answer. For one I suspect if such is allowed it will quickly be abused and in some respects in countries where it has been allowed, it has been abused. You very likely will end up with those that are elderly, depressed, disabled and others wanting to take such a route because they might perceive themselves to be a burden.

Even hmmmmm what is his name - well known atheist told some woman who asked him if she was carrying a child that had Down's Syndrome that she should abort and try for another child. We live in a throw away society and we throw away people too :cry:. The thing is many were outraged at what he said, but you can guarantee that plenty were thinking what he dared to speak aloud. When you find out that if you are carrying a disabled child you can terminate a day before that child is due to be born that is giving out the message that all live is not valued and what message does that give out to disabled people? See link below.

Also Liverpool Care Pathway was also abused see link below

We already have euthanasia in this country, they just don't call it that!

It's a scary world we live in  :sad:

Out of curiosity - how would you 'honour a human being'?

It is legal in the Uk and is known as Passsive Euthanasia and is withholding or withdrawing treatment .

However there are some who wish to die but cannot as in - I focus on http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-19249680

And on others who are campaigning for the right to end their lifes

Also see ;

As usual most of this stuff is hidden in society ATM - but lets hope people catch onto this and grow up

There does need to be compassion. I don't know the answer, the solution. The idea of withholding treatment - even basics to live sounds cruel and I worry such would draw things out, more misery, more pain?

As I may have mentioned before I don't like seeing anyone suffer,  human or animal. What worries me though as I mentioned before is the abuse of the systems we are discussing. Can anyone guarantee they won't be abused? I guess we cannot, but does that mean we shouldn't allow such? I am thinking aloud here and have no solid conclusions.

I also think suffering is part of life and yes I know it is to lesser and greater degrees, but I think about such cases as those with severe depression, that is supposedly life long and yet some come out of the depression - how do we know which one's will and which ones won't? Comas too, I've heard cases of people being in coma for years and then coming out of such when medical people had more or less written them off.

I think it must be horrendous to be without hope :sad:
