The House recently passed a bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks.
“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?”
Some have characterized DeGette’s answer to CNS as evasive, and I can’t agree that it was. In answer, DeGette stated her belief that the bill is unconstitutional and that the Kermit Gosnells of the world can be handled under criminal law. Ironically, that is the perfect answer to give against gun control (and many other Big Government overreaches).
Having said that: Just because DeGette gave a direct answer doesn’t mean she gave a good one regarding this bill – or that it isn’t a good question, one needing an answer. The Democrats’ “Even if it saves one life!” narrative in favor of gun control cannot be squared with their support for late-term abortion.
