STEVENS CASE DUE TO APPEAR BEFORE US SUPREME COURT THIS WEEK

Posted in Uncategorized by thecuriousmail on October 6, 2009

In 1999, the American Federal government made illegal the creation, sale, or possession, of pictures depicting animal cruelty.

Mr Stevens was convicted of such a charge, but has appealed to the US Supreme Court on the grounds that the law is inconsistent with his First Amendment right to freedom of speech.

What do you think?

I don’t believe I can ever support animal cruelty, and certainly not on the grounds of freedom of speech — such an argument is obscene and undermines all that has gone before.
