Twenty six people were killed by a madman at the Sandy Hook School.  The media was all over the story.  The response from liberals:  Ignore the Constitution which explicitly states that the right to keep and bear arms is a right of the people.  Instead, ban all firearms.  Keep a list of every gun bought and sold, even gifts from parent to child, and do everything possible to disarm law-abiding citizens, all in the name of protecting innocent lives.  After all, if everyone is allowed to exercise their right to keep and bear arms, deaths will follow.  Criminals don’t kill people, guns kill people.  Legislate guns out of existence (except those in the hands of the government).  Laws making gun crimes punishable by stiff jail terms won’t do, the Liberals cried.  We have to stop people from getting their hands on guns.

Kermit Gosnell, MD, a physician in West Philadelphia murdered 3 innocent babies, whose only offense was to survive botched late term abortions.  In the United States, over a million innocent babies are killed by abortionists each year.  Until Fox News raised the question of why the trial was not being covered, the media was silent and the screens dark.  Abortion rights groups also contend the problems at Gosnell’s clinic reflected a lack of enforcement, not a lack of regulation.  A few deaths are a small price to pay to protect the "constitutional right" to abortion on demand.
“There were regulations on the books over there,” Eric Ferrero, vice president for communications for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said recently. “Pennsylvania officials should have enforced those regulations better. But when you’re talking about someone who’s a criminal, you’re talking about someone who’s going to break laws.”

In other words, don’t outlaw abortions.  Just go after the folks who do their killing in a sloppy way.  And by the way, the "constitutional right" to abortion is nowhere mentioned in the Constitution. Can you spell “double standard.”
