National Sanctity of Human Life Day, 2006

Did you miss this? I did. I was surfing the whitehouse dot gov location for kicks and giggles and found this under the proclamations page. You didn't know we had one did you? Fess up. Let's see what this means to the old W, Rove and Co that authored this proclamation:
...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.
It doesn't hold up to the standard of great proclamations, now does it? Moreover, how many people were drilled, killed, and blood spilled by the 22nd of Jan in the name of the W, Rove and Co? What does this number (57 KIA in Jan 06 so far) say about the stock the W, Rove and Co place in this proclamation? About the same stock it places on a bill that gets a "signing statement" rider attached, I'd imagine.

"...unborn children, the sick and dying, and persons with disabilities and birth defects..."

Okay, we know who he's talking about when he mentions "unborn children", and also "the sick and dying" (Terry Schiavo), but the Bush administration is certainly not kind to "persons with disabilities and birth defects".
