Baby = cat?

It's a well-known fact that humans are a highly altricial species. We have some of the least developed newborns.

In order to deny the rights of the unborn, many people base personhood on properties such as self-awareness. The problem is that nothing happens developmentally at birth; neonates are practically identical to prenates. Self-awareness takes place 12-15 months after birth.

Some Roebots bite the bullet. One even told me killing an infant is no worse than killing a cat.

Why do people laugh at Roebots?
Only Roebots don't understand why.
