Henry Hyde, RIP

One of the great champions of life passed away last week. Henry Hyde was a powerful leading voice in Congress for the fight to protect the unborn over the last few decades. I was in the House gallery one evening in March 1996, witnessing one of the debates on the Partial Birth Abortion Ban bill, when his distinguished eloquence in closing the debate made me feel like it must have been similar to witnessing the eloquent words used over a century earlier during the efforts to end slavery in America.
