President Bush declared this past Sunday, January 21, National Sanctity of Human Life Day.
From the Whitehouse press release:
Among the most basic duties of Government is to defend the unalienable right to life, and my Administration is committed to protecting our society's most vulnerable members. We are vigorously promoting parental notification laws, adoption, abstinence education, crisis pregnancy programs, and the vital work of faith-based groups. Through the "Born-Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002," the "Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003," and the "Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2004," we are helping to make our country a more hopeful place.
Of course, they only care about the babies...
- Not the thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians that have been killed during the war in Iraq
- Not the detainees in Abu Ghraib who were humiliated
- Not the detainees that have been tortured
The Daily Kos has a good post on this here.
