A 7-year-old girl put Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg on the spot Thursday when she asked him why he thinks aborting an unborn baby is ok.
Mediaite reports the South Bend, Indiana mayor received the question during a campaign event in Henniker, New Hampshire.
Standing on a chair, the girl asked him: “Mayor Buttigieg, I have listened to you in the debates, and learned some stuff about you, and that you believe in a woman’s right to choose about her own body. I agree with that, no one should mess with or choose about my body and my parents because I’m still a child.”
Then, she told Buttigieg that she is 7 years old, and she thinks abortions are wrong.
“I believe that you make your decision on whether you’re going to have a child, and then your decision is made, and the abortion is not part of it,” she told him. “What do you think about that?”
Buttigieg has a radical pro-abortion position that supports abortions for any reason up to birth. He attempted to justify the killing of unborn babies to the young girl.
After thanking her for her question, he responded: “This is a hard issue for a lot of people because they believe different things. … this choice, it’s about drawing a line, and we might each, following our own beliefs, have a different idea about where to draw the line.”
Then, he claimed that he and the girl think alike on the issue.
“What I hope everybody, or at least most of us, can agree on is who gets to draw the line,” Buttigieg said. “And that’s the person making the decision, that’s the woman in question. And I trust women to make that choice. I don’t think that choice is easy. I know that it’s not going to be any better because the government’s saying what it ought to be. I trust women to make that choice. And it sounds like you and I view this issue the same.”

Few share Buttigieg’s radical pro-abortion agenda. As mayor of South Bend, he tried to stop a pregnancy resource center from opening down the street from an abortion facility. Then, earlier this year, he celebrated when an abortion chain that amassed dozens of health and safety violations opened a new location there.
In May, when asked about abortions in the third trimester, Buttigieg said he thinks they should be legal and unrestricted. He told Fox News’ Chris Wallace, “I trust women to draw the line.”
Then in September, he suggested that it is ok to end a baby’s life until they draw their first breath. He even tried to align his pro-abortion stance with Christianity in a recent interview with Rolling Stone.
Polls consistently show that Americans do not want what Buttigieg is promoting. Instead, they want strong restrictions on abortion – stronger than what currently are in place.
A November poll from YouGov/Americans United for Life found that 70 percent of Americans support abortion limits. A 2019 Gallup poll also found 60 percent of Americans take a pro-life position on abortion wanting all (21 percent) or almost all (39 percent) abortions made illegal. And in May, a Hill/HarrisX poll found that 55 percent of voters said they do not think laws banning abortions after six weeks – when an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable – are too restrictive, according to The Hill.
