He said it: Henry Hyde


Congressman Henry Hyde, speaking to his colleagues in September 1996 about a federal ban on partial-birth abortions:

One of the great errors of modern politics is our foolish attempt to separate our private consciences from our public acts, and it cannot be done.
… Is the crowning achievement of our democracy to treat the weak, the powerless, the unwanted, as things to be disposed of? If so, we have not elevated justice; we have disgraced it.
