Credit Where Credit Is Due

The former first lady urged President Bush to protest China's forced abortions, according to Lifesite, which quotes from a portion of a letter Hilary Clinton recently wrote to the president:

"Since first introduced in 1979, China's one-child policy has evoked strong concern over human rights abuses. These abuses have reportedly included denial of social benefits, fines, detention, destruction of property, forced abortion and forced sterilization. . .," she wrote. "In 1995, as a participant in the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, I heard first hand about these practices and spoke against them."
