Michael Vick

Well, all this in the news about Michael Vick is concerning. Yes, he should be found guilty and spend time in jail for killing those dogs. That was cruel and we need to take care of animals.
But...I read this statement and then asked my Dad a question today. Here is the statement:
The most damning evidence made public against Vick came Friday when co-defendants Purnell Peace and Quanis Phillips also pleaded guilty. In their plea, Peace and Phillips admitted to killing eight dogs in April at Vick's property in Virginia and said that Vick participated in the death of the animals. The animals were destroyed because they failed to perform well enough in testing to see if they were "game" enough to be good fighters.
"Every time you read about this story, it makes you want to take a shower," another unnamed general manager said.

My question was "If Michael Vick had made his girlfriend/wife go out and have an abortion - no one would know it and no one would care - right?"

That is truly the demise of our society when dogs matter more than babies.
