WATCH: Pete Buttigieg CONFRONTED about late-term abortion views as a “Christian”

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!

  1. Now, now. You all just need to move on to a more inclusive Christianity, like Petey here. His Christianity is so inclusive that it includes killing the unborn when they’re unwanted.

    Strangely, his more inclusive Christianity doesn’t prevent him from passing judgement on those who don’t share his more inclusive Christianity…

  2. I hope the Democrats keep going along this trajectory. Whether it’s Buttgag, Biden, Beto or the Squaw doesn’t matter. They are heading for a landslide defeat next year at this rate. And that makes me feel just fine.

    1. I don’t know if you follow the stock market, but the healthcare stocks (insurance, pharma, devices, etc.) have fallen off a cliff since BS’s “Medicare For All” Town Hall.

      Does anyone really think this will pass? BO couldn’t pass single payer when he had control of both houses, if I remember right.

      Anyway, I’m fine with them heading down such a path. I think some of these stocks are already bargains, but I’ll probably wait a little longer at least before buying.

      1. Anything is possible when a man can walk into a women’s restroom without repercussions.

  3. It important to remember that Pete supports abortion at any time for any reason.

    What he’s talking about (late-term abortion when the mother’s life is in peril) is extremely infrequent and perhaps moral (prior to my wife giving birth, I had decided in my heart that if for some medical reason, if I’d have to choose between my wife or my newborn son, I’d choose to save my wife).

    Again, Pete supports abortion at any time for any reason.

    1. @boomtown Remember that “late term abortion” is never necessary to save the life of the mother. It is far easier on the mother to simply deliver the living baby by Cesarean than the much more complicated procedure of aborting the baby.

      1. I didn’t know that…thanks! Kinda puts my mind at ease, actually. I was always worried about having to choose in a tough situation.

      2. Yea, I’m no a doctor but I don’t know of any medical situation that would arise where it would be necessary to kill the baby to save the mother, especially nowadays. The only thing that comes close is an ectopic permanency, but that is more akin to a miscarriage and happens early in the pregnancy

  4. This person is a liar, a “Religious Conservative” does not accept abortion, and this person who is for murder is wrong.

    Secondly, the left always tries to lie about us, “Religious Conservatives are interested in your candidacy” nonsense, it is simply their agenda. It would be like me saying “Antifa fascists are interested in the truth about their beliefs and actions”. Saying it doesn’t make it true.

    1. He is an Episcopalian…should explain most of his beliefs…not the most Bible believing denomination. I know, I was one.

      Psalm 139 13-18
      13 For you created my inmost being;
      you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
      14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
      your works are wonderful,
      I know that full well.
      15 My frame was not hidden from you
      when I was made in the secret place,
      when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
      16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
      all the days ordained for me were written in your book
      before one of them came to be.
      17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
      How vast is the sum of them!
      18 Were I to count them,
      they would outnumber the grains of sand—
      when I awake, I am still with you.

  5. his arguments about the life and health of the mother being put in danger

    Probably a good time to remind people of what Steven Crowder’s investigation revealed:

    The whole “life and health of the mother” excuse is mostly bs. Nowhere else in society do we just hand over a life or death decision like this. A doctor and a judge should be involved every single time and the choice of the doctor and judge should be out of the hands of the people looking to kill the fetus. The incentives of the doctor and judge should be to preserve the life of the fetus while ensuring the life and health of the mother.

  6. This 37 yr old is something else. I took a quick look at his history and it’s pretty obvious he’s been gunning for President his whole life. He’s a career student and politician, with only his Navy Reserve job being outside those realms. He’s been the mayor of a minor city for eight years and somehow he believes that qualifies him to be President.
    If he manages to succeed, I will be convinced he’s one of Satan’s hand picked minions. As it stands I think he’s a couple cards short of a full deck.

    1. As it stands I think he’s a couple cards short of a full deck.

      That describes all of the Dem candidates.

  7. I think you summed it up quite nicely Scoop. AND… you told us how you really feel! I’d give you 1000 :thumbsup: if I could. As it stands, I agree with you 100%. Excellent commentary. :clapping:

  8. I don’t see this bendover as a serious candidate. However, he’ll get more traction than he deserves. He’s just about the only one on that side who comes off as calm and confident – even though his beliefs/policies are horrific, unamerican and absolutely insane. I find him to be an abomination on almost every front. I sincerely hope America gives him no love when they vote.

  9. He’s a slick charlatan. “I’m a real Christian, but people like Mike Pence are fake Christians”. Jesus warned us about wolves in sheep’s clothing like this.

    What could be more of a “wolf in sheep’s clothing” than a mild-mannered, gay “Christian” man supporting the mass murder of innocent children?

  10. Not true, Scoop. We religious conservatives are interested in his candidacy because this train wreck will be fun to watch.

  11. His views on abortion are beyond the mainstream of America right now. Just hammer him on this & don’t let him breathe on it, and his candidacy is over.

  12. The sad thing is Democrats do not care about infanticide. They simply don’t anymore. So it doesn’t matter that he supports eugenics, because half the country doesn’t care. God help us.

  13. Ahh, so a new chapter in the Bible According to Pete.

    “I’m a good Christian according to version the Christianity I made up for myself.”

    This guy. He’s just a moral relativist pretending to wear a cross.

    1. He’s literally re-interpreting scripture on the fly. I relly don’t understand why no one in the press is calling him out on this…

      Oh wait, never mind, I assumed the press would do their job on that.

  14. If this dude gets the nomination, Trump is going to mop the floor with him… figuratively speaking.

    Infanticide, illegal immigration, and this good economy will be the main issues…

  15. Then there are those who profess to being a Christian, yet live lives not in keeping with the precepts of the Scripture, i.e., compromising their biblical beliefs by living like the world. For them, the things of the world and its sensual allurements take precedence over the Word of God (Acts 20:30; 1 John 2:16-19). Jesus referred to these people as “those who hear the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it proves unfruitful” (Mark 4:18-19). These are the ones who, though professing to follow Christ, compromise their faith by craving worldly success and accolades from their fellow man. Jesus chastised such people who rationalized their questionable behavior: “How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?” (John 5:41-44). In other words, to compromise in one’s total allegiance and devotion to God is to allow the allurements of this world, with its accompanying worries, to take precedence over Christ (Matthew 6:24).

    1. Did you mean to make your username your email address? That’s not a good thing.

  16. Well said. You will know them by what they do.

    The nuns used to say that when you meet the devil he won’t be wearing a red leotard but a three piece suit.

    1. Yep. Don’t let the Dems get away with their stance on this. We need to hammer them on this everyday, morning noon & night, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

  17. There’s more to being a Christian than claiming to be one. Buttigieg can say he’s a Christian until the cows come home but that won’t make it so. Just another leftist phony trying to have it both ways.

    Real Christians don’t believe in infanticide.

  18. 1. He is not a Christian in any sense of the word.
    2. Even if he did NOT support abortion, things he’s already said about the scriptures make him a blasphemer and I would never vote for him… EVER.
    He commits a grievous sin. When you commit se xu al immorality like this, you sin inwardly against the Spirit that dwells within us.
    With that said, the amount of fan fare he’s getting, the way he acts and talks, I would almost gander at a calling of “anti-Christ”? Maybe I’m wrong but scripture does tell us that he’ll come in as a peacemaker, a humble man that many love and follow. Think about it…

  20. Sorry…gay sex nor abortion is sanctioned by God. You can be forgiven but “ go and sin no more” if you have a problem with that take it up with your Creator because His word is clear.

  21. He seems inexplicably to believe that the right to life is granted by a woman and her doctor, not by the very Creator he claims to serve.

  24. It’s not a “complex” issue Mayor Buttplug, it’s murder, plain and simple. Filthy, fudge packing, pervert.

  25. Here’s the thing I wish the Pete Buttigiegs of the world would understand: That if you’ve got a problem with what an unborn child is, your problem is not with me and millions of others who speak for the unborn, your quarrel, sir, is with our creator.

  26. It important to remember that Pete supports abortion at any time for any reason.

    What he’s talking about (late-term abortion when the mother’s life is in peril) is extremely infrequent and perhaps moral (prior to my wife giving birth, I had decided in my heart that if for some medical reason, if I’d have to choose between my wife or my newborn son, I’d choose to save my wife).

        1. @boomtown I only learned it recently myself. While it makes sense intuitively, what I never knew was how actually difficult the “late term abortion” really is. Really horrible, and not just on the baby.

      2. Yea, I’m no a doctor but I don’t know of any medical situation that would arise where it would be necessary to kill the baby to save the mother, especially nowadays. The only thing that comes close is an ectopic permanency, but that is more akin to a miscarriage and happens early in the pregnancy

  27. I hope the Democrats keep going along this trajectory. Whether it’s Buttgag, Biden, Beto or the Squaw doesn’t matter. They are heading for a landslide defeat next year at this rate. And that makes me feel just fine.

  28. He seems inexplicably to believe that the right to life is granted by a woman and her doctor, not by the very Creator he claims to serve.

  29. There is absolutely no sense of morality with this guy! If he reads his Bible at all — rather than just posturing about it — he’d know that God knows us AS WE’RE BEING FORMED (Ps. 139). Yes, of course God cares about the mother, but He’s not just all love — He’s justice and righteousness, too! There is no morality, no justice, no righteousness in having an innocent child pay for the actions of another.

  30. Buttigieg is a complete fraud in every way. I find it offensive that he tries to pass himself off as a Christian. He’s a lying charlatan that is trying to pander to conservatives just to get their votes. True Christians are not afraid to say they do not support the gay lifestyle, gay marriage or abortion. You want to be gay so be it, but I don’t have to like or support your lifestyle.

    1. Part of the problem is a watered-down “Christianity” that amounts to ear-tickling instead of truth.

      “For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.” 2 Timothy 4:3

  31. After listening to his reply I feel like I need a shower. It reminds me of listening to a slick salesman, or a Democrat..

  32. The Left is okay with religion if it’s distorted and watered down. Mayor Buttboy wants to believe he has a path to heaven while doing whatever he pleases. It doesn’t work that way!

  33. Whatever word salad you want to throw at it, Mr. Buttigieg, doesn’t change the truth that:
    1. It’s murder.
    1a. It’s a sin.
    1b. It should be illegal.

  34. Indeed! A baby or toddler is the sweetest, most precious thing in life. Even with diapers, crying and later, discipline, children bring such joy. I’m sick of people talking about how awful it is, what a hardship, boohoo. Entertainment also makes giving birth sound like the absolute worst torture, and always have the actresses pretending to give birth screaming like crazy. I believe that is deliberate, sometimes, to scare women away from it.

  35. Buttplug is evil. No doubt about it. Notice how slowly the left is creeping in more and more evilness?

  36. Buttigieg thinks he can cherrypick what he likes about Christianity, and discard the rest to fit his lifestyle and non-biblical beliefs. I know these guys, they like to allegorize scripture they don’t like to make it mean whatever they want it to mean. Uhh no, it doesn’t work that way. People may change, what is socially acceptable may change, but God doesn’t change. It’s an all or nothing kind of thing.

  37. Why just abortion? He’s homosexual.

    No homosexual can claim to be Christian and be a follower of the Gospel.

    Pete is morally repugnant at all levels.

    1. The problem isn’t that he’s a homosexual by itself, it’s that he’s in open defiance of God. I’ve sinned because I’m human and it’s in my nature. To celebrate that sin would cross the line.

      I have all kinds of desires too, like lusting after a friend’s hot wife, that doesn’t mean God made me as an adulterer and I should proudly and openly act on it. I shouldn’t act on it even in secret, but open defiance is even worse.

      1. Well said. I don’t believe God hates homosexuality, but rather it is a failing of mankind or simply a test. It is the celebration that is wrong.

  38. This person is a liar, a “Religious Conservative” does not accept abortion, and this person who is for murder is wrong.

    Secondly, the left always tries to lie about us, “Religious Conservatives are interested in your candidacy” nonsense, it is simply their agenda. It would be like me saying “Antifa fascists are interested in the truth about their beliefs and actions”. Saying it doesn’t make it true.
