Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg attempted to rationalize his support for legal abortion until birth by citing the Bible and suggested that unborn babies can be aborted up until they draw their first breath.
In an interview on “The Breakfast Club” radio show on Friday, Sept. 6, the South Bend mayor discussed how the Bible talks about life beginning with breath and used his understanding to advocate and legitimize a regime of abortion on demand until the moment of birth.
“[Pro-life people] hold everybody in line with this one piece of doctrine about abortion, which is obviously a tough issue for a lot of people to think through morally. Then again, there’s a lot of parts of the Bible that talk about how life begins with breath,” he said.
“No matter what you think about the cosmic question of how life begins. … The most important thing is the person who should be drawing the line is the woman making the decision,” Buttigieg added.
Buttigieg suggests we determine life when the baby draws its first breath.

The Right Scoop denounced the South Bend mayor, saying, “The Bible says Adam’s life began with GOD’S breath, and as a result of that, the rest of humanity flowed from him. It doesn’t say anything beyond that about life beginning when we start ‘breathing.'”
Buttigieg, along with other Democratic presidential contenders have relentlessly derided the Trump administration for its “immoral” policies, lamenting about “children in cage” under “filthy conditions” while proclaiming killing unborn babies is totally legal.
When abortion becomes a presidential campaign plank, Democratic candidates do not hesitate to use it to push their political agenda.
This is why former President Joe Biden reversed his position on the Hyde amendment, which bans federal funding for abortion, just days after his campaign had announced his support for it in June, as reported The Guardian.
The same reason for former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke who took the pro-abortion stance to its furthest extreme while previously deferring to a woman’s choice regarding late-term abortion.
In late August, O’Rourke faced a very pointed question from an event attendee: “My question is this, I was born Sept. 8, 1989, and I want to know if you think on Sept. 7, 1989, my life had no value,” according to the Washington Examiner.
“This is a decision that neither you, nor I nor the United States government should be making. That’s a decision for the woman to make,” O’Rourke said.
According to Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra, 2,408 unborn babies are killed per day in the United State, making abortion the first ranking of the “killer list.”
