Hat tip to the Weekly Standard blog for catching this howler of an error by the New York Times editorialists/left-wing-interest-group-lackeys. It seems they never took Civics 101 and learned the difference between the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution — and, moreover, it seems they wouldn’t know how to apply the clause from the Declaration even if it WERE part pf the Constitution. On the other hand, it IS encouraging that they suddenly have found a right to life in the Constitution. Apparently, though, it only applies to the right to potentially save people from their own suicidal handgun tendencies–because, of course, the Times has made clear that it does not think the right applies to babies or to inconveniently hospitalized people who others want to euthanize.
What I don’t know is how the NYT editorialists can even live with themselves, considering their incredibly low standards of journalism.
