". . . caring for the least among us each and every day." Thus said Michelle Obama, halfway through her speech. Her husband likes to quote this passage (from Matthew 25). Who are "the least" in Obama's world? Lots and lots of people, including widows and orphans and, generally, those who are poor. But not the child in utero (or even, to judge by his opposition to the Illinois legislation designed to protect babies that survive abortion, actual infants). Obama needs to be asked why the unborn fail to qualify as one of his "least of these." Maybe in one of the debates?
