Which is of course the argument the left uses to try and pass gun control.
(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) would not answer why she opposed a bill to ban late-term abortions after 20 weeks even if it would “save one life,” a rationale regularly used by Democrats when pushing for gun-control legislation.
On Tuesday, DeGette and Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.), co-chairs of the House Pro-Choice Caucus, led a press conference to oppose the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 1797), a bill that would ban abortions 20 weeks post-fertilization, or 5 months into pregnancy.
Following the press conference, CNSNews.com asked DeGette, “Many Democrats, when they were arguing for gun control in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting said even if this saves one life it will be worth doing. Why not support this bill then, if it undoubtedly will save lives of babies that have been carried throughout 5 months of pregnancy?”
DeGette said, “Well, this is, this is. … We already have laws in many states of this country. This bill is blatantly unconstitutional.”
“And, and if you look at the perceived—if you look at the stated reason of doing this legislation the Kermit Gosnell case, that gentleman was convicted of murder and sentenced to life,” DeGette said. “Any other questions?”
When CNSNews.com tried to follow up, DeGette said, “No, excuse me. Any other questions?”
