    From Wikipedia:


    Maternal Health Protection Law[edit]

    In 1997, the Maternal Health Protection Law was greatly revised and many restrictions from previous Eugenic Protection Law were removed.

    In 2006, Article 14 of the Maternal Health Protection Law was revised. Under the revised law, approved doctors can virtually practice abortion to anyone, if consent was given by the mother.[14] If a mother is married to a spouse, consent is also required from the spouse, but there are exemptions, such as, if spouse is missing or unable to give consent.[14] Despite the fact this law requires a valid reasons to carry out abortion, virtually any mother is applicable for socioeconomic abortion, as it can be carried out unconditionally. Other valid reasons for abortion include rape and health problem. Doctors must send anonymous reports to the prefectural government after conducting abortion for health or socioeconomic reasons.

    So, apparently abortion on demand is the norm in Japan. Of course, given their demographic death spiral, they may want to rethink that.

    C'mon. They're fucking dolphins. Imbue them with as much "intelligence" as you want but the fact is that all they really are is trainable. Much like a dog - which means they're smarter than cats.

    Something like that.

    It's just that Moonshine, the only pantropical spotted dolphin in North America at any facility, is one of my favorite critters in the world, other than our greyhounds and elephants. He's unreleasable as has liver problems that require monitoring. Plus Mote keeps track of all the dolphins in this area, has done so for over 40 years.

    The senseless slaughter by the Japanese and others is unacceptable. Even more unacceptable is the slaughter of human babies. Of course humans take precedence, but that doesn't justify the slaughter of the animals.

    (And I'm not some radical who doesn't eat meat, etc--definitely not a vegan). But senseless slaughter is slaughter. Maybe I've been hanging around the libtards too much, but believe me I'm fiercely conservative in all other aspects. Just because one is a conservative doesn't mean that a conservative can't advocate for the protection of animals. If that's the case, I don't want to be a conservative.

    By the way, I've eaten dolphin before. It's decent food. Not super great but pretty tasty though. (I was on Grand Cayman and had what I refer to as the endangered species triple combo plate - turtle (farm-raised so legal), dolphin and conch.)
