Great Moments in Senate Rhetoric, Number 6,543
Above, Senator Sam Brownback shows a "chart" drawn by a little girl named Hannah. Hannah had been "adopted as an embryo." Brownback summarized Hannah's explanation of the drawing: It's a bunch of embryos. The one on the far left is a smiling, happy Hannah, thankful to be allowed to develop to gestation. On the right, the embryos destroyed in the IVF process -- the ones who died that Hannah may live. Hannah, Senator Brownback explains, has blood on her hands. This chilling picture is a portrait of a killer.
