Good e-mail, good questions:
I never thought I would hear this on the floor of the Senate, but Senator Boxer was just arguing that we needed to act now on Warner-Lieberman because we need to protect “God’s creatures.” Granted, she was talking about polar bears, but who knows where this could lead. Recognizing the dignity of polar bears might be the first stop on the long road toward recognizing the dignity of human beings. On another note, she stated proudly that the National Council of Catholic Bishops supports the Warner-Lieberman bill. I wonder if it ever occurs to the Bishops that they undermine their unequivocal committment to the unborn every time they support complex legislation, the merits of which reasonable people might question.
