Pete Buttigieg, in addition to being a deeply dishonest man who constantly lies to rationalize and defend his lifestyle and beliefs, is an abortion fanatic. How much of that is due to some personal animus he has towards heterosexual couples and how much is simply founded on his politics, but his views on abortion are extreme even by the standard of the Democrat party. For instance, Buttigieg has claimed that a baby can be killed up until the moment it draws its first breath. And obscenely claims there is Scriptural support for this view.
Buttigieg suggests we determine life when the baby draws its first breath.
A 2020 presidential candidate is suggesting babies can be killed up UNTIL a baby draws its first breath.

[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. Even that is something that we can interpret differently. . . . No matter what you think about the cosmic question of how life begins, most Americans can get on board with the idea of, ‘I might draw the here. You might draw the line there.’ The most important thing is the person who should be drawing the line is the woman making the decision.
That view is not only anti-science it is sacrilegious and utterly heretical:
A theological question for Buttigieg: when did the Incarnation begin? The Bible says Christ was conceived miraculously in Mary's womb. Was Christ not a human in utero? Was there a time during Christ's Earthly existence when He was subhuman? Explain that one, Mayor.

Today, as my colleague Brandon Morse reports, a home belonging to a deceased abortionist was found to contain some 2,246 sets of remains of dead babies. The abortionist was Ulrich Klopfer. He was forcibly retired in 2015, and his clinic closed, after it was found he’d performed abortions on at least two girls under 13 years of age and violated state law by not reporting it. This is the worst case:
In particular, according to Niki Kelly of the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette, many of the board members were particularly struck by Klopfer’s nonchalant attitude regarding the case of a 10-year-old girl who had been raped by her uncle. The doctor failed to notify the police even after learning that the parents were going to keep the matter secret. One board member stated that what bothered her most was Klopfer’s striking lack of medical judgment and competence.
What makes this case more interesting is that Klopfer’s clinic was located in
In Buttigieg’s first year in office, a pro-life crisis pregnancy center attempted to open right next door to the abortuary run by Klopfer at the time, it was called the Women’s Pavilion. The pro-life group, headed by a guy named Shawn Sullivan, promised to not allow pro-life demonstrators to use their property but Buttigieg intervened to prevent it getting permission to open. Undeterred, Sullivan opened a Catholic chapel next door and in a short period of time the complaints against Klopfer and the impact of the chapel forced the Womens’ Pavilion to close.
Given Buttigieg fetishization of abortion and Klopfer’s status as South Bend’s only abortionist, it is difficult to imagine that there was not a more extensive and substantive relationship waiting to be uncovered.
This is the kind of man Buttigieg is. He defended Klopfer when his license was under attack. He provided the administrative firepower necessary to overturn a zoning decision that would have put a pro-life pregnancy center next door to Klopfer. And he thinks a child still attached to the umbilical cord can be legally killed because it isn’t yet breathing.
