Yesterday, co-chairs of the House Pro-Choice Caucus Rep. Dianna DeGette of Colorado and Rep. Louise Slaughter of New York held a press conference in opposition to the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The bill, which passed the House yesterday, would ban most abortions after 20 weeks.

At the press conference, DeGette, a noted firearm expert, was asked the following: “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’s answer was an exposure of “if it saves just one life” double standards delivered in a way that made Miss Utah’s response look eloquent in comparison:

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?”

For pols like DeGette, “we already have laws against that” is not considered a reasonable argument when it comes to opposing more gun control measures in the wake of Sandy Hook, but it’s become the go-to argument against measures to prevent late term abortion in the wake of Kermit Gosnell.
