Holy shit! George W. Bush is anti-abortion! If only we had known about this sooner...

Damn, Mr Roboto beat me to the snarky "well, duh" comment! But I'm gonna say it any way:

"Extra! Extra! Bush is anti-abortion! Read all about it!"

Well, the guy is pro-life, so it's not exactly news. He will appoint what he believes to be pro-life judges and do what he can to get the law changed. This is the focus of much of the conservative movement.

I don't really think that's a fair comment. Pro-lifers believe abortion is the killing of a person. If it is considered to be a life then of course saving that life trumps privacy. This is not something you can put on the same level as the Patriot Act or wire taps.

Gross, but not sure why this is news? Nevermind the "best of the web?"
