As a proud member of organizations that PP calls “Terrorists and Extremists,” it seems fitting that President George Bush’s first veto should concern a life issue: the ethical use of science and in protection of all humans, no matter where or how they originated. After all, his first televised speech as President, in August 2001, was also in defense of the smallest and newest members of our species.
In fact, the President had anticipated the need to veto HB/HR 810. Wesley Smith reported on his blog, Secondhand Smoke, that he had been invited to the veto-speech days ago.
Thank you, Mr. President.
