If supporting the “culture of life” in one case in Florida requires an emergency congressional session, then perhaps when John Bolton’s nomination for ambassador to the U.N. comes up, Senators should ask him about his manifest contempt for human life outside out borders. After all, Bolton has consistently argued that the murder of innocents in strategically unimportant places like Bosnia, Kosova, and Africa, is not a concern of the United States, and should not be a concern of the U.N., either.
Sure, in every country the lives of their own are pre-eminent. But in an administration that trumpets its commitment to universal concepts of human rights, there should be something of a consistent policy towards the right to live of one person in Florida who subisides in a vegetative state, and the right to live of millions of fully living, thinking beings in places like Sudan.
In this particular case, there’s no doubt what Jesus would do. And unless he eats crow and bends the knee, there’s no doubt John Bolton has fatally defied the Culture of Life.
