FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT THE PIPING PLOVER’S, LOGGERHEAD SEA TURTLE’S, AND HUMPBACK CHUB’S OFFSPRING ARE PROTECTED BY LAW BECAUSE THEY ARE ENDANGERED SPECIES BECAUSE OF HUMANS.
Total US nesting for loggerhead turtles is approx. 68,000 to 90,000 nests per year (and declining); Cape Verde Islands and Brazil support a bit over 5,000 nests per year; in the Mediterranean it’s at about 3,300 to 7,000 nests/season.
The humpback chub’s only habitat is the Colorado River Basin. “Scientists estimate that the number of adult humpback chub in Grand Canyon is between 6,000 and 10,000. The most likely number is estimated at 7,650 fish.”
Causes of endangerment can also be found at those links.
I’m not saying whether abortion is wrong or right/moral or immoral. I’m just saying that if you try to convince me that abortion should be illegal by reminding me that there are creatures being protected by law because THEY’RE GOING TO GO EXTINCT I WILL PROBABLY SPIT IN YOUR FACE WITH THE FORCE OF 100 WALRUSES.
