Henry Hyde Died Today

God bless him! He was a champion pro-life politician. Pray for his soul.

Choosing not to seek re-electiion last year, he had been chairman of the House Judiciary Committee from 1995 to 2001 and served as the lead House manager during Clinton's impeachment trial.

He sponsored the Hyde Amendment, which withdrew federal funding for abortions since its first passage in 1976.

Earlier in November, Hyde was given the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor.
