Despite my differences with Mary Cheney on other issues, I found her quote, from today's New York Times, touching:
"When Heather and I decided to have a baby, it was not going to be the most popular decision ever," Ms. Cheney said, referring to her partner of 15 years, Heather Poe.
She then gestured to her middle - any bulge disguised by a boxy jacket - and asserted: "This is a baby. This is a blessing from God. It is not a political statement. It is not a prop to be used in a debate by people on either side of an issue. It is my child."
Cheney made that statement at a college event hosted by pro-abortion Glamour magazine, which I'll be surprised to see included in its coverage.
