Pete Buttigieg Calls Georgia Abortion Ban Protecting Babies a “Cruel Attack” on Women

Pete Buttigieg, the Democrat who let abortion activists sway him into blocking a pregnancy center from opening in his city, slammed a Georgia pro-life law this week as a “cruel attack”on women.

The mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Buttigieg is radically pro-abortion, like all the other candidates hoping to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020.

And like every other abortion activist right now, he is attacking Georgia’s new heartbeat law. Signed by Gov. Brian Kemp on Tuesday, the law protects unborn babies from abortion once their heartbeats are detectable, about six weeks.

For some reason, though, Buttigieg’s response to the law is getting a lot of attention.

“A woman has enough to deal with when it comes to her health care without also having to worry about male politicians telling her what she ought to do with her body,” he wrote Thursday. “Georgia’s abortion ban is a cruel attack on women’s autonomy and freedom — one that we must continue to resist.”

This “cruelty” that Buttigieg speaks of is not letting unborn babies be slaughtered in their mothers’ wombs. And the “freedom” that he claims to support tells women that they can only be free if they can pay an abortionist to kill their child.

Buttigieg and all the other pro-abortion Democrats running for president right now do not really support women. They support the profit-driven abortion industry, which, in turn, supports them through campaign donations.

The situation involving the pregnancy center in South Bend is a good example. Last year, the pro-life non-profit Women’s Care Center wanted to open a new location next to a soon-to-open abortion facility, and requested a zoning change so that it could. The South Bend city council vote in favor of the request, but Buttigieg vetoed it, saying abortion activists at the new abortion clinic expressed concerns about protests.

The pregnancy center volunteers assured the council and Buttigieg that they do not protest anyone, and there have never been issues with protests at any of their other centers. They said they simply wanted to provide women with other choices and support.

But Buttigieg listened to the abortion clinic’s activists instead. He also ignored strong evidence that the abortion industry puts profits above women’s health.

Whole Woman’s Health, which hopes to open in South Bend soon, has a poor reputation for meeting basic health and safety standards. It has racked up dozens of health and safety violations at its Texas facilities. Health inspection reports show numerous problems with sterilizing and disinfecting instruments that were used from woman to woman. State inspectors also found rusty spots on suction machines that had the “likelihood to cause infection” and other issues that put patients’ safety in jeopardy.

Indiana denied a license to the abortion facility, saying it provided “inaccurate statements and information” on its application. Whole Woman’s Health is appealing.

In contrast, pregnancy centers do not gain anything by helping mothers in need. These non-profits actually lose money by giving away diapers, cribs, counseling, pregnancy tests, ultrasounds and more.

Pro-abortion Democrats like Buttigieg toss around words like “choice” and “freedom” to sound good to voters, but their actions indicate that abortion, not choice, is what they really support. Not for women and especially not for unborn babies, who already are unique, living human beings from the moment of conception.
