This morning, MSNBC host Willie Geist actually confronted 2020 Democrat Pete Buttigieg about his late-term abortion views even though he claims to be a Christian.
Geist told Buttigieg that religious conservatives are interested in his candidacy, but have trouble with this support for late-term abortion.
Here’s how that went down:
First of all I take issue with Geist’s characterization. I don’t know of any religious conservatives that are interested in Buttigieg’s candidacy, with his gay marriage and his support for abortion, no less his radical views on Climate Change and health care.
Secondly, as a religious conservative myself, I don’t just take issue with his views on late-term abortion. I take issue with his support for abortion PERIOD. It’s wrong at any stage of a woman’s pregnancy.
As far as Buttigieg’s answer, notice how thoughtful he sounds when it comes to the mother. But he doesn’t have a care in the world about the life in that mother’s womb. Even when pressed on that specific issue with a decent refutation of what a ‘religious conservative’ might say, Buttigieg still defers to the mother and all the torment and anguish she might be going through.
OH PLEASE! What a pathetic excuse. Women have been giving birth since the beginning of God’s creation and have faced all manner of issues along the way. There is simply no good reason to have an abortion.
Now that’s not to say that there aren’t difficult issues that women face when it comes to giving birth. But in most cases it’s because of bad decisions that were made along the way that brought them to this place of pregnancy. Of course I’m not talking about forcible rape. While that does happen with more frequency that any of us would like, I’m talking about the promiscuous behaviors that dominate our culture and account for an extremely high percentage of pregnancies.
But my point is that he has bought into the idea that the life in the womb is not worth saving unless the mother decides it is, and that’s counter to everything I know about God as a Christian.
Furthermore, his arguments about the life and health of the mother being put in danger, as reasons for late-term abortions, is nonsense. What you need to know is that the health of the mother, as defined by the courts in Doe v. Bolton, could mean almost anything, “including physical, emotional, psychological, or familial well-being”.
Also, it’s extremely rare to the point that it hardly ever happens at all that a mother’s life is put in danger by her pregnancy. And in such an extreme case doctors can perform a c-section. Again, this is all nonsense to protect the women’s right to choose.
And lastly, it just amazes me that the left loves tyrannical government EXCEPT when it comes to the issue of abortion. Leftists like Buttigieg don’t mind forcing you to buy healthcare insurance, but when it comes to persevering the vulnerable lives of unborn children, they say government needs to get out of the way. Pathetic!
