Two children.

And, if you were not yet convinced of the mighty struggle between the culture of death and the culture of life... Here is Paul Kengor on two children with Down Syndrome.

I'll blog more later on the pro-life "issue." It's a shame to call it an "issue," because that seems to reduce all those lives to a "consideration." As if we--the living--had any authority to "consider" their worthiness of our protection. (I can imagine a German voter from 1933, "We need to consider the 'Jewish issue.') I want to try and articulate the depth of the crisis over their lives, so come back later this week!

UPDATE: And here's yet another synopsis of the denial in which opponents to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act are simply in a philosophically untenable (i.e., divorced from concrete reality) position.
