Buttigieg: No moderate on baby-killing

The so-called political experts bloviating on the TV shows describe Pete Buttigieg, AKA Saint Pete, as the "moderate" challenger to socialist Bernie Sanders.  But Mayor Pete's record, especially on abortion, is far from moderate.

Pete is just a younger, more polished version of Bernie Sanders.  In fact, in 2000, as a high school student, Pete wrote an essay praising Bernie Sanders as a "profile in courage" that won the John F. Kennedy Library Award.

On abortion, there is no question that Buttigieg is not a moderate.  Buttigieg supports abortion on demand. For example, in April 2018, Mayor Pete vetoed a South Bend, Indiana City Council rezoning that would have allowed a pro-life counseling home, Women's Health Center, next to a proposed abortion clinic, Whole Woman's Health Alliance.  Saint Pete said:

Issues on the legality or morality of abortion are dramatically beyond my paygrade as a mayor.  I don't think it would be responsible to situate two groups, literally right next to each other, in a neighborhood, that have diametrically opposed views on abortion.

Buttigieg deliberately reframed the issue to mislead.  The issue before Mayor Buttigieg was not the legality or morality of abortion.  The issue was a zoning matter: the city council had ruled to allow a pro-life counseling group to open an office next to an abortion facility.

The abortion clinic favored by Buttigieg operated without a license under the direction of a former employee of the notorious abortionist Ulrich Klopfer.  During his career, Klopfer did over 30,000 abortions in South Bend and two other towns in Indiana.  Following his death, in September 2019, authorities discovered the remains of 2,246 aborted unborn children stuffed in boxes in Klopfer's garage.  Then more remains were found in the trunk of Klopfer's car.

Buttigieg's response to this horrific story is that he hoped it would not affect abortion "rights": "I hope that it doesn't get caught up in politics at a time when women need access to healthcare."

Buttigieg's concern was the "politics" of the issue, not the dead unborn children stuffed in boxes in garages and in a car trunk.

Klopfer operated an abortion mill in South Bend, while Buttigieg was mayor, until 2016 when Indiana revoked his license because he did abortions, without properly reporting them, on two girls under the age of 14.  Buttigieg took the office of mayor in January 2012.

Buttigieg should be questioned about what he knew about the Klopfer facility. 

The remains of the Klopfer victims were buried on Wednesday, February 12, 2020 at Southlawn Cemetery in South Bend, Indiana.

On Sunday, February 23, there will be an additional memorial service to honor the aborted children.  The service is being jointly organized by several right-to-life groups.

As further evidence of his radicalism, Buttigieg tries to justify the "right" of a woman to an abortion up to the moment of birth by his interpretation of the Bible:

Then again, you know, there's a lot of parts of the Bible that talk about how life begins with breath, and so even that is something that we can interpret differently[.] ... No matter where you think about the kind of cosmic question of where life begins, most Americans can get on board with the idea of, alright, I might draw the line here, you might draw the line there, but the most important thing is the person who should be drawing the line is the woman making the decision.

Either Buttigieg is making biblical stuff up or he must be unaware that it is a scientific fact that life begins before "breath."  As a mayor and presidential candidate, he must know that most states have fetal homicide laws that protect an unborn child.   Such laws make it a homicide to kill an unborn child, except for an abortion.  It is clear that the premise of these laws is that life begins before birth for purposes of the homicide laws, which is before Buttigieg's biblical interpretation.  Buttigieg is deliberately misleading by equating when life begins with when human life is protected.

For example, Pennsylvania's statute states that life begins at fertilization for the purposes of the homicide laws.

Buttigieg is slick.  He says he doesn't know when life begins, but then he cites the Bible to support abortion on demand.  He vetoed a zoning ruling that would have allowed a pro-life counseling center to open next to an abortion facility, which would have saved some unborn children.  But he said the legality or morality of abortion was above his pay grade.

If Buttigieg could not reason, as mayor, about the legality or morality of abortion because it was above his pay grade, why would anyone believe he now understands the morality of killing the unborn?

At what point does Buttigieg reach the pay grade that would allow him to understand the morality of killing the unborn?
