What happens when you ask a pro-abortion congresswoman a logical question about abortion policy? She can’t answer it, of course.
As TheBlaze reported yesterday, that is exactly what happened to Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO) on Tuesday. She refused to answer why she opposed legislation to ban late-term abortions after 20 weeks – even if it would ‘save one life’:
REPORTER: Many Democrats when they were arguing for gun control in the wake of the Sandy hill shooting said even if it saves one life, it will be worth doing. Why not support this if it undoubtedly will save lives of babies who have been carried throughout five months of pregnancy?
DEGETTE: Well, this is – we already have laws in many states of this country. This bill is blatantly unconstitutional and if you look at the perceived – or 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.
Immediately following the Congresswoman’s shaky response, the reporter attempted to ask a follow up question but was quickly shot down.
DEGETTE: Any other questions. No, excuse me. Any other questions?
“She cannot answer it,” Pat said. “She cannot answer it. “
Rep. DeGette tried to deflect answering the question by claiming that there are already laws on the books that legalize abortion. Unfortunately, she failed to remember there are very explicit gun laws on the books as well.
“But if you can only save one person, they are worth it, right? Wasn’t that the argument,” Pat asked. “[She] never addresses the actual issue. Excellent question.”
NOTE: The House of Representatives on Tuesday approved a bill that would restrict almost all abortions to the first 20 weeks after conception.
