Today, Wednesday, April 21, Elton Gallegly, R-Calif., James Moran, D-Va., Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., and more than 50 other Representatives introduced H.R. 5092 in response to Tuesday's Supreme Court ruling in U.S. v. Stevens. According to the HSUS, "this narrowly-crafted statute is designed to end the intentional crushing, burning, drowning and impaling of puppies, kittens and other animals for the depraved purpose of peddling videos of such extreme acts of animal cruelty for the sexual titillation of viewers."

Thinking on the other side of the issue, though, this also means that organizations like PETA can use videos of these abuses as a means to raise awareness. Silencing the issue by supressing video evidence can be dangerous.

Surely, owning, watching and being involved in any videos that involve cruelty and torture of animals should be considered in the same way as similar videos of children.
Or am I missing something ?
