Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg says he will bring Christianity back to the White House. Not that Christiaity is lacking there but, if it were, how would Buttigieg do that when he fully supports infanticide and killing babies in abortions up to birth? That would put him more in league with King Herod than Jesus Christ.
Faith doesn’t have to be something to divide us. First of all, we gotta recognize that one of those many values honored by our flag is the fact that it belongs to people of every religion and no religion equally; that’s a basic American principle. But I’m also offering to people who are guided by a faith tradition in making their decisions about what they think is right and wrong that when I’m president you’ll never have to look at the White House and scratch your head and think, “Whatever happened to ‘I was hungry and you fed me. I was a stranger and you welcomed me.’ ‘Whatever you’ve done to the least of these, you have done to me.’”
But Buttiegieg is perfectly fine with aborting the “lease of these” — innocent babies in their mother’s womb. He even went as far as saying that the Bible endorses abortion.
He has previously described the killing of unborn babies as “an American freedom.”
He said the government should not restrict abortions in any way, and instead leave the decision to abort an unborn baby completely up to women, according to One News Now.
“I think the dialogue has gotten so caught up on where you draw the line that we’ve gotten away from the fundamental question of who gets to draw the line,” Buttigieg said when asked about the new Alabama law that bans all abortions. “And I trust women to draw the line.”
Buttigieg said he believes abortions should be legal through the third trimester, after unborn babies are viable. He argued that late-term abortions are just a small percent of all abortions – which is technically true but misleading.
Even a small percent of 1 million abortions a year still represents thousands of babies’ lives. According to the Centers for Disease Control, thousands of abortions at or after 21 weeks are performed every year. In 2015, the total was 5,597; however, that number includes data from only 39 states. How many viable unborn babies were aborted in the other 11 states is not known.
In May, when asked about abortions in the third trimester, Buttigieg said he thinks they should be legal.
“The bottom line is, as horrible as that choice is, that woman, that family, may seek spiritual guidance, they may seek medical guidance, but that decision isn’t going to be made any better, medically or morally, because the government is dictating how that decision should be made,” he said.
He also told Fox News’ Chris Wallace, “I trust women to draw the line.”
But without limits, unborn babies can be put to death for any reason, at any time in their mothers’ wombs in some states. They can be aborted simply because they have Down syndrome or a cleft lip, because they are a girl instead of a boy, or because their parents just don’t want a baby.
Unborn babies are human beings, too, and they are the most defenseless and vulnerable of all Americans today. Every year, about 900,000 are aborted, nearly all for purely elective reasons. Their lives also deserve to be protected.
