Government has no business spay/neutering animals or people which will  be next if things like this are allowed. California just outlawed homeschooling IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A COLLEGE TEACHING CERTIFICATE!! Be one of The Approved or else!!!!! These are the kind of things China does and Gernans did under the Nazis. Sterilize those who did not meet THEIR STANDARDS!!  Go to Wikipedia the online encyclopedia and type in "Prescott Bush History" which is George Bush Jr.'s Grandfather and you will find that He and HIS Bank Financed the Nazis BOTH before and during when they were in power and assets of his bank was confiscated for participating in financing the Nazis. The Fruit Don't Fall from the Tree!! There is a concerted effort to take away ALL our Rights guaranteed by The Constitution of the United States that MANY of our ancestors died to guarantee for us. When this Constitution was finished, Benjamin Franklin was ask, "What have you created?" His reply was "A Republic IF you can 

keep it." Another quote of his was "Those who will give up a little freedom for a little security, deserve neither!!"  NO, I DO NOT support ANY of the Presidental Canidates because I trust NONE OF THEM!!  Yes there are animals which are mistreated BUT these Spay/Neutar laws will ONLY harm the good animal owners and good breeders and homeowners. Government will no more stop abuse or etc. than it will stop illegals coming across the border, or prevent our children from taking drugs. There are already laws on abuse and those laws stop nothing.  Please stand up for our rights as American citizens, and protect our Constitution of the Unied States and what it stands for . Seymour
