It doesn't get more sickening than this.....

Bob Geiger brought this to our attention, and it's such an extreme example of underhanded pandering, it's nauseating.

On Friday, Bush proclaimed today, January 22, National Sanctity of Human Life Day. JUST so happens it's also the anniversary of Roe v Wade.

The official proclamation is wracked with religious zealotry, but this line takes the cake:

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.

Every life has meaning? What about:

  • The dead citizens of Iraq (over 120,000 of them)?
  • The dead American soldiers?
  • The dead people you've sent to Death Row?
  • The dead mine workers?
  • The dead Katrina victims of New Orleans and Mississippi?
  • The dead Asian tsunami victims to which you offered $350,000?
  • The dead burnt bodies you stood upon with a bullhorn after 9/11?

Death is all over your record, Mr. Bush. You have zero right to tell us to have respect for human life.

You've lacked that respect of human life every day of your administration - with the exception of embryos and Terri Schiavo. That's some record.

We flatly reject your proclamation on the sanctity of life until you end your culture of death.

A great catch by Geiger. He has more at his site.
