Contrary to the political pundits, President George W Bush, a man of deep faith and conviction, will one day be judged kindly by history.
Faced with more challenges than any of his predecessors, he has done more than them to build a culture of life.
He said that “all life is a gift from our Creator that is sacred, unique and worthy of protection”. He emphasised that “we aspire to build a society in which every child is welcome in life and protected in law”.
Let us hope that newly-elected Barack Obama will be moved by the grace of God to follow in Bush’s pro-life footsteps.
