"A Person's a Person No Matter How Small"

It's finally here! One of the greatest pro-life children's books of all time, now in a G rated movie! I can remember the time also when my Confirmation teacher did a dramatic reading of this in our class, one of the best Confirmation classes ever. I personally can't wait to see it. I've commented in past posts about the influx of movies dealing with the abortion issue. Of course this one is not explicit either, but how else can one hear the powerful mantra: "A person's a person no matter how small?" I've heard screwed up things about Dr. Seuss. I'm no sure which one's are true. I'll let someone else figure that out. All I know is that he could write and this is one of his best ever.

One has to think Dr.Seuss said what he meant and meant what he said!
(But...I have heard his widow has been insistent that the theme is not pro-life)

I love reading this book to my son. (And also "Horton Hatches an Egg.") No matter what Dr. Seuss intended, the book has a powerful pro-life message. How do you get clearer than "a person's a person no matter how small?" (Which is why I love reading it to my son.)

I'm a big fan of Horton Hatches and Egg too. Hard to beat the great Dr.
