The point was to spay them while the female was pregnant. You indicated that you waited for the animal to have the litter and finish nursing. Most people choose that option because it seems more appropriate...
Many people don't. It depends on how far along the pregnancy is. Just like in humans, elective abortions cannot be done past a certain point, only if the female's life/health are in danger.

Those of us who believe in the Founders' vision of separation of Church and State will fight you on that one all the way. You're not taking your mythology and using it in place of our secular laws anymore than we'd let Muslims run the country with Sharia.
Religion sucks as a governing principle...
Agreed.
The constitution should be first and foremost in the minds of lawmakers.
Personal opinion and beliefs doesn't belong.

Nonsense. don't put words in my mouth.

Of course lawmakers have personal opinions and beliefs, and base their decision-making at least partly on them. One can only hope, however, they are also honest, that they aren't corrupt, and that the base their decisions on FACTS as well.

No, they are not supposed to be basing their decisions on their personal opinions at all. That's what impartial MEANS.

I think you have lawmakers and judges mixed up. The judges are supposed to be impartial and rule on the law not make the law.

I wasn't trying to put words in your mouth.

(My opinion)
Of course they have personal opinions but those opinions should not influence the laws they make.(end opinion)

Better?

Law makers, congress and the senate are not supposed to be impartial. That is just crazy talk. They are supposed to look out for what is the best thing for our society but they are not supposed to be impartial.

Why not? If they didn't have personal opinions they wouldn't make any laws.
For instance a congressman may feel that charging over 30% interest on a payday loan should be illegal. Due to this personal opinion he writes a law that will later be voted on by others with their own personal opinions on the subject. If he had no personal opinion on the subject he wouldn't have written the law.

And a law like that would be unconstitutional. A regulation might be different but the simple answer is don't do business with high interest thieves.

Idiot, looking out for what is best for society IS being impartial. Surely, you are not suggesting that one's personal opinion should be taken for what is best for everyone? Are you REALLY this dumb?

THAT is government interfering in the private sector which should not happen.
If people want to pay 30% on a payday loan then that's their problem.

Wake up would you? It was an example, that is why I said "for instance". I was just showing that in order for laws to be written someone has to use their personal opinion.
