Hitler did the exact same thing. Hitler said something along the lines of "If you have the children in mind, you can bend the will of the people." That is not anywhere near the exact quote. I just saw it a few days ago somewhere (maybe on here?), but I can't remember enough of the exact quote to find it.
I also saw a picture today that said, "The only time democrats won't use children as a prop is at a pro-choice rally." Darn hypocrites. If they're so concerned about protecting our children, then why don't they care about a child's right to life?
