Happy Sanctity of Human Life Day!

(via Daily Kos)
A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America
Our Nation was founded on the belief that every human being has rights, dignity, and value. On National Sanctity of Human Life Day, we underscore our commitment to building a culture of life where all individuals are welcomed in life and protected in law.
(Snip)
National Sanctity of Human Life Day is an opportunity to strengthen our resolve in creating a society where every life has meaning and our most vulnerable members are protected and defended including unborn children, the sick and dying, and persons with disabilities and birth defects. This is an ideal that appeals to the noblest and most generous instincts within us, and this is the America we will achieve by working together.

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 22, 2006, as National Sanctity of Human Life Day. I call upon all Americans to recognize this day with appropriate ceremonies and to reaffirm our commitment to respecting and defending the life and dignity of every human being.
Yeah sure George. The same sanctity you displayed to Karla Faye Tucker by mocking her before she was executed on your watch as Texas governor? The sanctity you give to Cindy Sheehan for her loss of her son in your worthless war? It looks like, as far as you are concerned, that sanctity ends at the womb. Once in the world, you're on your own.

It's the only peaceful answer I can see.

New Hampshire, huh? I lived in New England for a short while, and I don't know if I could do that again. I think Northern California is a more comfortable and politically friendly option.
