Imagine if the Republicans had children ushered out onto a stage if they were arguing why abortion is wrong!!!!!
These babies DID NOT contact Bush. They were dragged into it for political purposes.
GW Bush - Stem Cell Research - Snowflake Babies
I'd sure hope you wouldn't expect anyone to come up and say how it was different for Bush or how his using children for politics was somehow better.
He's as ugly with it and much scum as anyone else in doing that. My personal feelings go all the way back to Reagan and learning 'We are the World'
for a political cause as a child. I learned it SO well, decades later, I still know that song to the word, by heart.
Person or cause doesn't matter to me. If a child is too young to independently explain the purpose, importance and basic conflicting points of a
political issue? They're too young to use as a prop to advance it.
I noticed the NRA Eagle/Marksmanship programs were mentioned for gun safety in schools and I don't see relation there. If the NRA carries the message
of political activism to take home to Mom and Dad as a part of it? Then by all means, they need to knock that off.
Aside from that? It's like saying Shop Class is political just because many areas have Union Labor related to the skills learned there. Firearm
safety, IMO, isn't political. It's a basic life skill in a nation where firearms are part and parcel to daily life and culture.
