President Bush suggested that the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, that gentlest of measures which he signed into law earlier this month ("Welcome to the 'human family,'" Aug. 17), could be a first step in restoring a culture of life. It may well be, if the administration encourages further steps with other moves, quite as gentle. They would require no new legislation, and they might involve simply the artful raising of questions in public.
