This may be Barack Obama's big weekend leading up to the inauguration and all, but that hasn't stopped still-President Bush from declaring Saturday "National Sanctity of Human Life Day." In a nod to pro-life Republicans about to be exiled from power, Bush's proclamation states:
All human life is a gift from our creator that is sacred, unique and worthy of protection. On National Sanctity of Human Life Day, our country recognizes that each person, including every person waiting to be born, has a special place and purpose in this world.
The official statement goes on to outline policies under Bush that have built a "culture of life," including abstinence and adoption promotion, parental notification, and stopping federal funding of abortions overseas.
Do you find it worrisome that a presidential proclamation refers to God, or do you think it's honorable that Bush is standing up for the dignity of unborn children?
