All life is valuable. That is all

Even an ant is worth saving if one as the power to do so...

I agree, everyone has a right to their life. A pigeon or an ant's life is as important to them as ours is to us.
Your post reminds me of a time when I worked about 4 storeys up in a tall building. Across a couple of roofs, a colleague noticed a pigeon trapped in the netting that was put there to deter birds from settling on the window sills.
So, we found a long pole and taped a small razor blade to it and, taking it in turns, leant over a very rickety railing and tried to cut the pigeon free. It wasn't easy because the blade was sharp on both sides and tended to cut the tape as well as the netting. However, we persevered and attracted a small audience from neighbouring offices.
After risking life and limb for some considerable time - Success. The netting was cut and the pigeon - bloody creature - plummeted to one of the lower roofs, never to be seen again. We shouted to our audience and asked if they could see where the pigeon had landed, but they just sort of gawped at us and we never discovered its fate.
To add to the heroism of my tale - I'm terrified of heights. In fact, not so long ago I climbed up onto a tall oil tank (in order to access an attic) and had to be lifted down because I froze and couldn't get down by myself

Even a pigeons life is worth saving!
But a human fetus is just tissue.

That was cool, but how the hell does a bird get stuck in a tree? LOL I'll watch the other animal vids later when I get home. Going out soon.
