Veto Pen Brandished; Snowflake Babies Bury Washington


President Bush has issued the first veto of his presidency:

Bush announced his veto standing before 18 families with "snowflake babies," children born after frozen embryos that were not used were adopted by other couples.

"Each of these children was still adopted while still an embryo and has been blessed with a chance to grow, to grow up in a loving family. These boys and girls are not spare parts," Bush said after several interruptions of applause from supporters.

But they are political props! Reason's Ron Bailey has more.
