Pro-abortion congressman introduces bill to save rats from ‘inhumane’ glue traps – LifeSite

WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) — A notoriously pro-abortion member of Congress has introduced a bill to outlaw glue traps designed to eliminate rodents because he considers them to be “cruel” and “inhumane.”  

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-California) has long enjoyed a 100% rating from NARAL Pro-Choice America.  

Quite stunningly, Lieu’s boast on social media — trumpeting his call to protect rodents from “inhumane” treatment — came as tens of thousands of prolife Americans were descending on Washington, D.C. for the annual March for Life to demand an end to all abortion.   

Lieu’s bill seeks to criminalize glue traps because he considers their use to be “ruthless,” but he’s apparently fine with murdering children in their mother’s wombs. 

Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, which grades politicians based on the legislation concerning the unborn, has consistently given the California congressman an “F”: 

Rep. Lieu has consistently voted to eliminate or prevent protections for the unborn and for children born alive after failed abortions. Rep. Lieu has voted to eliminate prohibitions on taxpayer funding for abortion, domestically or internationally, including by redefining longstanding safeguards against abortion funding to allow taxpayer funding for abortion travel expenses. Rep. Lieu has worked to allow radical abortion ideology to be inserted into every facet of the United States Government.

Lieu’s post on X (formerly Twitter) was highly ratioed, receiving 4,500 mostly negative comments while garnering only about 550 “Likes.”  

“Now do abortion and babies,” urged one X-user.    

 “Do you understand how late-term abortions work and the significant torturous pain a human child has to go through?” asked Christopher Calvin Reid, Host of The Daily Controversy, in a searing response.  He continued:    

One day, you will have to give an account to God as all of us will, and he will not be impressed that you cared more about the comfort of rats than the butchery of children….. I really hope you repent and seek after God, but if not, then keep doing what you are doing and see how it plays out in eternity. You strike me as a person who is confident that religion is clutch for the weak and that only fools believe and trust in God. But work hard to protect rats from glue… let that be the great impact of your life…. what an embarrassment you are to your country.

Another X user responded to Lieu: 

Glue traps for rats = Bad 

Sex organ mutilation for kids = Good

 “You know what’s worse than glue traps?” asked Capitalist Mike and listed a number of diseases rats spread to humans. 

“Hantavirus, leptospirosis, lymphocytic choriomeningitis, Tularemia and Salmonella,” he stated before adding, “I hate that you’re my rep.”  

Folks responding to Lieu couldn’t resist comparing Lieu and his congressional colleagues to the vermin Lieu is seeking to protect. 

“Too many of your friends affected?” asked Ron Bassilian. 


Joel Berry, Managing Editor of the Babylon Bee wrote: “Honestly we should make some really, really big ones and see what we catch on Capitol Hill.”
