Get Me One That Doesn't Cry When I Hold Him

In announcing that he was casting the first veto of his presidency, Pres. Bush surrounded himself with 18 families who "adopted" unused frozen embryos donated by other couples. As reported by the Associated Press, the president said legislation recently passed by Congress to ease limits on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research "crosses a moral boundary," adding that "these boys and girls are not spare parts."

Spare parts? No. Cheap political props? Most certainly.
