You’re quite the nasty piece of work = toxic tone and BDS.
Thankfully, honest historians won’t be hobbled by such disorders.
God bless and protect Pres. George W. Bush.
I’m especially grateful for him today,
Maybe rove has found girls to agree to do the unthinkable with him on the side. Maybe he has been a customer.
I like the way you think. Hearts and minds and the right vocabulary. I love it.
Every word I said about Bush is fact. Whether you believe it or not is not my concern. His grandfather Prescott Bush was was involved with the American Birth Control League (founded by Margaret Sanger) as early as 1942, and served as the treasurer of the first national capital campaign of Planned Parenthood in 1947. The Bushes are, and always have been, New England Rockefeller liberal republicans.
I don’t care if his great uncle’s Aunt Fannie hid in the forest and lured little children into her evil lair with poisoned red apples, Pres. Bush did not govern at all with anything close to the alleged sensibilities of his grandfather, and if you really had informed knowledge about him and his policies, you’d know it. I must conclude that, not only are you flip and snarky, you’re in the dark.

National Sanctity of Human Life Day, 2003
By the President of the United States of America
Our nation was built on a promise of life and liberty for all citizens. Guided by a deep respect for human dignity, our Founding Fathers worked to secure these rights for future generations, and today we continue to seek to fulfill their promise in our laws and our society. On National Sanctity of Human Life Day, we reaffirm the value of human life and renew our dedication to ensuring that every American has access to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
As we seek to improve quality of life, overcome illness, and promote vital medical research, my Administration will continue to honor our country’s founding ideals of equal dignity and equal rights for every American. Every child is a priority and a blessing, and I believe that all should be welcomed in life and protected by law.
My Administration has championed compassionate alternatives to abortion, such as helping women in crisis through maternity group homes, encouraging adoption, promoting abstinence education, and passing laws requiring parental notification and waiting periods for minors.
The Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which I signed into law in August 2002, is an important contribution to our efforts to care for human life. This important legislation helps protect the most vulnerable members of our society by ensuring that every infant born alive, including one who survives abortion, is considered a person and receives protection under Federal law.
It helps achieve the promises of the Declaration of Independence for all, including those without the voice and power to defend their own rights.
Through ethical policies and the compassion of Americans, we will continue to build a culture that respects life. Faith-based and community organizations and individual citizens play a critical role in strengthening our neighborhoods and bringing care and comfort to those in need.
By helping fellow citizens, these groups recognize the dignity of every human being and the possibilities of every life; and their important efforts are helping to build a more just and generous Nation. By working together to protect the weak, the imperfect, and the unwanted, we affirm a culture of hope and help ensure a brighter future for all.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim Sunday, January 19, 2003, as National Sanctity of Human Life Day.
As we reflect upon the sanctity of human life, I call upon all Americans to recognize this day with appropriate ceremonies in our homes and places of worship, to rededicate ourselves to compassionate service, and to reaffirm our commitment to respecting the life and dignity of every human being.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this fourteenth day of January, in the year of our Lord two thousand three, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and twenty-seventh.
GEORGE W. BUSH

Bush vetoes embryonic stem-cell bill
July 19, 2006
President Bush holds a child who was adopted while an embryo Wednesday after vetoing a stem-cell research bill.
President Bush used his veto power Wednesday for the first time since taking office 5 1/2 years ago, saying that an embryonic stem-cell research bill “crossed a moral boundary.”
The bill, which the Senate passed Tuesday, 63-37, would have loosened the restrictions on federal funding for stem-cell research.
House Republican leaders tried Wednesday evening to override the veto, but that vote was 235 to 193, short of the necessary two-thirds majority.
“This bill would support the taking of innocent human life in the hope of finding medical benefits for others,” Bush said Wednesday afternoon. “It crosses a moral boundary that our decent society needs to respect. So I vetoed it.

Obama: End Funding for Snowflake Embryo Adoption Program
President Barack Obama is seeking to end federal funding for a pro-life program installed during the administration of President George W. Bush that helped save unborn babies potentially slated for destruction in fertility clinics.
The snowflake baby program provided funding for adoption-awareness programs for the children who were formerly stored human embryos at fertility clinics who could have been destroyed for scientific research.

Links to Barack Obamas votes on Illinois Born Alive Infant Protection Act
Below is a listing of then-state Senator Barack Obamas votes and state senate floor speeches on ILs Born Alive Infant Protection Act.
(At right is a political cartoon by Jack Higgins, printed in the Chicago Sun-Times on August 25, 2004, during his U.S. Senate campaign.)
A package of Born Alive bills was introduced three times during Obamas tenure.
The cornerstone bill was the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, aka Born Alive Infant Defined, which defined legal personhood to include born alive infants any time the words person, human being, child, or individual was stated in IL law.
This definition was identical to the federal BAIPA which was drafted from the definition of live birth created by the World Health Organization in 1950 and adopted by the United Nations in 1955.
Following are Obamas actions and votes on Born Alive. The bill number changed every year it was reintroduced.

Obamas no vote on the IL Senate floor, April 4, 2002
Listen to audio from Obamas 2002 IL Senate floor debate wherein he argued that while babies might be aborted alive, it would be a burden to a mothers original decision to assess and treat them.
Meanwhile, the federal Born Alive Infants Protection Act with a neutrality clause added passed the U.S. Senate 98-0, the U.S. House overwhelmingly, and was signed into law August 5, 2002. The pro-abortion group NARAL expressed neutrality on the bill.
Senate Bill 1082, Born Alive Infant Protection Act
Democrats took control of the IL Senate with the 2002 elections. This year Born Alive was sent to the Health & Human Services Committee, chaired by Barack Obama.
As can be seen on the vote docket, Obama first voted to amend SB1082 to add the neutrality clause from the federal version of Born Alive to the IL version to make them absolutely identical. (DP#1 means Do Pass Amendment #1.)
Then Obama voted against the identical version. (DPA means, Do Pass as Amended.)
Additional corroboration of Obamas vote: IL State Senate Republican Staff Analysis of SB 1082, March 12-13, 2003, bottom of page 2
For 4 years following his 2003 vote Obama misrepresented it, stating the wording of the IL version of Born Alive was not the same as the federal version, and he would have voted for it if so. As recently as August 16, 2008, Obama made this false assertion.
But when evidence presented was irrefutable, Obamas campaign on August 18, 2008, admitted the truth to the New York Sun.
The nonpartison group FactCheck.org has since corroborated Obama voted against identical legislation as passed overwhelmingly on the federal level and then misrepresented his vote.
