Unpleasant thought experiment

Let’s say I announced that I was going to painlessly kill a kitten or a puppy every time a woman was stoned to death, or beheaded or crushed beneath a wall, or in any way honor-killed. Let’s say, for the sake of argument, that it was legal to do this animal-execution, as long as it was humane.

Would this action on my part cause people to pour their efforts into trying to prevent those honor killings, or would they pour their efforts into trying to stop me?

It’s an appalling thing to think about, but then, the honor-killings are appalling and no-one really seems to give a damn.
